Wrinkle Reduction Q&A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles develop from several causes, some you can control, some you can’t. 

Aging is a significant factor in the development of your fine lines and creases, and one you may not have much control over. As you get older, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, causing your skin to become less elastic and more fragile. You also lose some of the supportive fat under your skin, which causes sagging and laxity.

Sun exposure also causes wrinkles by accelerating the breakdown of your collagen and elastin. Protecting your skin from the sun may slow down the effects and prevent premature aging. Smoking also stimulates the development of wrinkles due to the impact the habit has on collagen production. 

What is wrinkle reduction?

Wrinkle reduction at Osler Medical Group at Heights Medical refers to the aesthetic treatments offered to erase your lines and creases, and restore a more youthful look. Osler Medical Group at Heights Medical uses advanced aesthetic tools from Cynosure® for wrinkle reduction, including:

The Icon® aesthetic system

The Icon aesthetic system is a laser cosmetic tool equipped with intense-pulsed light (IPL). The pulses of light generated by the Icon laser penetrate the sub-layers of your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, your skin naturally rebuilds the supportive proteins, revitalizing your skin and smoothing out your lines and wrinkles.

TempSure™ RF platform 

The TempSure RF platform uses radiofrequency energy to reduce the appearance of your wrinkles. Like the Icon system, the radiofrequency energy produced by TempSure penetrates the deep layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. 

In addition to revitalizing your skin’s natural support system, the radiofrequency energy also tightens the supportive structures in the deep layers of your skin, which creates a natural lift to reduce sagging and smooth out creases. 

What can I expect during wrinkle reduction treatment?

Your aesthetic expert at Osler Medical Group at Heights Medical reviews the details of your wrinkle reduction treatment plan during your consultation, so you know what to expect. The details of your treatment plan may include how to prepare for your wrinkle reduction session, what to expect during your treatment, and the number of appointments needed. The specifics of your procedure may depend on the aesthetic system your specialist uses for your wrinkle reduction treatment and your ultimate aesthetic goals.
