Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

As you age, your skin becomes less hydrated and elastic. Wrinkly skin is the result of your body’s gradually decreasing production of collagen and elastin over time. Collagen is a protein that your body produces to keep your cells hydrated and give them structure, and elastin is a protein that keeps your skin tight.

The wrinkles on your face form according to the facial expressions you make the most. For example, you might have prominent wrinkles alongside your mouth, or smile lines, if you smile and laugh frequently.

What are my options for wrinkle reduction?

At South Auburn Medical Clinic, Dr. Aflatooni uses the TempSure™ Envi, a device that emits radiofrequency waves to tighten your skin and smooth your wrinkles. The TempSure Envi kick-starts your body’s natural rejuvenation processes to restore it to its original beauty.

During each treatment session — you’ll likely need more than one to get your ideal results — Dr. Aflatooni runs the device over your skin in the areas where you want fewer wrinkles and lines.

You’ll feel a warming sensation as the energy heats the tissues under your skin. Your session lasts about 45 minutes, and you’ll notice that your skin feels tighter immediately.

Who is a candidate for wrinkle reduction?

TempSure Envi wrinkle reduction is a gentle enough treatment that nearly anyone is a candidate. The best candidates for skin tightening with TempSure Envi, however, are middle-aged men and women with slight to moderate skin wrinkling and sagging.

If you’re taking certain medications or are pregnant, wrinkle reduction with TempSure Envi may not be your best option. Dr. Aflatooni can help you explore more suitable options for similar results.

What are the benefits of wrinkle reduction?

Beyond achieving a younger, less wrinkled look, wrinkle reduction with the TempSure Envi comes with several benefits over its more invasive counterparts. You’ll enjoy:

  • A painless procedure
  • Quick appointments
  • No downtime after your appointments
  • No scars
  • No skin discoloration
  • Natural-looking results

Wrinkle reduction with radiofrequency is very safe with little to no chance of side effects. The most you’ll experience is a bit of redness, but it should go away within a day or two of your treatment.

If you find yourself wishing for firmer skin with fewer wrinkles when you look in the mirror, call South Auburn Medical Clinic today to explore your wrinkle reduction treatment options.
