Wrinkles Q & A
Why do I have fine lines and wrinkles?
Fine lines and wrinkles are something everyone has to face as they age, due to changes in the skin and underlying tissues. As you age, your body produces less collagen and elastin, which are the fibers that give your skin its youthful tautness.
This process accelerates after menopause when estrogen production slows down. Estrogen plays a key role in signaling your body to generate new collagen and elastin, so when levels drop, skin loses its elasticity and plumpness.
The age at which people develop wrinkles and the depth and number of lines everyone has varies widely. Much of this is due to your genes, which you can’t control, but other factors accelerate and worsen the signs of aging, such as:
- Overexposure to sunlight
- Poor diet
- Chronic stress
These are all aspects of your life that you can address, so protecting yourself from the sun, eating a balanced, healthy diet, managing stress, and avoiding bad habits like smoking will all help keep lines and wrinkles at bay.
What can I do about lines and wrinkles?
The most effective noninvasive solution for lines and wrinkles is to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers. Your body doesn’t lose the ability to create new collagen and elastin; it just becomes dormant. If you can kickstart the body’s natural regenerative properties, it plumps up your skin and reduces wrinkles and lines.
At CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics, the expert team uses the Cynosure Icon aesthetic platform to deliver pulses of light known as IPL into the skin and underlying tissues. The light pulses trigger the healing response in your body’s tissues, which over time produce new collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, your skin has a more even texture with fewer lines and wrinkles.
How soon will I see an improvement after Icon treatment?
It takes a while for your body to generate the new collagen and elastin fibers, so the improvement is gradual rather than instant. You should see noticeable results after three months, with long-lasting effects.
Many patients are happy with the reduction in lines and wrinkles after only one Icon treatment, or you may wish to have extra treatments to achieve the optimum result. In addition to Icon laser treatment, you have the option of using Botox® and dermal fillers to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
