Waking up to see wrinkles popping up in areas that were once smooth and wrinkle-free is both a nightmare and a reality for some. In today’s world, there are a variety of treatments that can smooth the appearance of wrinkles and even prevent more from forming.
For your convenience, Clearview MediSpa offers a wide range of non-surgical wrinkle treatments such as Fractora, Forma, dermal fillers, micro-needling, and microdermabrasion. Read below to discover some of the best and most popular non-surgical options for reducing wrinkles and keeping a youthful complexion as you get older. After all, who says that your face has to give away your age? True wisdom comes from experience, not sagging skin.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Dermal fillers are a great way to restore plumpness into specific areas of the skin with minimal downtime. Dermal fillers can either help the body to produce more collagen or add hyaluronic acid to certain areas for a plump, revitalized look. As we age, our body produces less of both hyaluronic acid and collagen, which causes sagging, ageing skin and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, which contain hyaluronic acid, are perfect for achieving a smooth complexion and filling in wrinkles or sunken areas of the face. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in our bodies, these fillers break down gradually over time and require top-ups every few months to keep wrinkles away. In addition to easing wrinkles, these fillers can also be used to plump the lips, fill in acne scars, and lift the eyebrow area.
Thermal and Radio Frequency Energy
Similar to laser procedures, IPL (intense pulsed light), heat, and radiofrequency treatments work to ablate the skin tissue and stimulate new collagen production. Though these treatments may take multiple sessions to achieve the desired results, they often last for years and are worth the time it takes. Benefits include not only reduced wrinkles but also smoother and tighter skin altogether. Here at Clearview MediSpa, we offer both Fractora and Forma, which are revolutionary wrinkle treatments that use radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift problem areas of the face.
Fractora is a wrinkle and acne treatment that can improve the look of scarring, wrinkles, and skin texture. A small device used on the skin sends gentle radiofrequency energy just below the dermis for increased collagen production and noticeable results within two weeks. The treatment is non-surgical with minimal pain, discomfort, and downtime. Fractora provides better results than traditional laser resurfacing and is safe for all skin tones and types. Most treatments can be completed within thirty minutes to an hour.
Similarly, using radiofrequency energy, Forma skin tightening treatment is another option offered here at Clearview MediSpa for treating wrinkles. Once again, the use of radiofrequency energy and heat stimulates collagen for a lifted, youthful complexion. Forma is great for sagging skin and loose areas of the face that need to be lifted, such as under-eye bags, crow’s feet, and more. Discomfort is minimal, and there is little downtime as with our other non-surgical wrinkle treatments. Keep in mind that these treatments can be tailored to individual needs for the best results.
Botox is well known for its ability to decrease wrinkles dramatically and relax the face for a rested, smooth, and youthful look. It is one of the most popular wrinkle treatments out there, and for good reason. Botox works by relaxing muscle movement in certain areas of the face so that wrinkles disappear and become less pronounced. If you are in the market for a quick wrinkle treatment that can be done during your lunch hour, then Botox is the way to go!
Exfoliating Peels and Microdermabrasion
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing dead skin cells to reveal smoother skin. You will usually need to repeat these treatments frequently for the best results. Benefits include a brighter complexion with reduced fine lines and pigmentation; however, deep wrinkles and scars may need an alternative treatment, depending on the severity.
Another very popular treatment making headlines in the skincare community is microneedling. Microneedling uses needles to cause microscopic tears in the skin, which stimulate collagen production as a result of the body’s natural healing process. The result is generally clearer skin with a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, as well as scarring and pigmentation. Essentially, the skin is able to regenerate itself throughout the healing process after the microneedling treatment.
