What is wrinkle reduction?

Wrinkle reduction is a noninvasive procedure that alleviates wrinkles and fine lines. Wrinkles develop on your skin’s surface as you age and lose collagen and elastin. At the same time, your wrinkles can worsen due to certain lifestyle factors. You might seek out wrinkle reduction after developing wrinkles due to:

  • Smoking
  • Spending time in the sun
  • Using tanning booths
  • Taking certain medications
  • Dehydration
  • Alcohol consumption

No skin treatment can completely stop the aging clock, but our treatments can help pause or turn back the hands of time! Our wrinkle reduction treatments can reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face, neck, chest, and other areas that get a lot of outdoor exposure. Fine lines respond the best to wrinkle reduction treatments, but you may see some improvement with deeper wrinkles, too. Often our clients combine Neuromodulators with our wrinkle reductions treatments for maximal results.

How does wrinkle reduction work?

At Meridian Aesthetics and Wellness, we use both the Tempsure Radiofrequency (RF) Wrinkle Reduction system by Cynosure to help tighten your skin and reduce wrinkles and the Icon Laser platform for skin resurfacing and wrinkle reduction (discussed in more detail on our SKIN RESURFACING page). The Tempsure RF system delivers radiofrequency, or radio waves, deep into your tissues without any incisions in your skin’s surface.

Radiofrequency energy disrupts your collagen, causing it to tighten and contract. Furthermore, it makes your skin produce more collagen for long-term tightening and surface-level wrinkle relief. Notable wrinkles that diminish due to this process are:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin around your eyes
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Mouth wrinkles

You can get Tempsure RF treatments regardless of your skin tone and type, and they also work to reduce the appearance of cellulite on your thighs and buttocks.

How can I maintain the results of my wrinkle reduction treatment?

Once you have achieved your ideal wrinkle reduction, you can maintain your results by making some lifestyle changes and adjusting your skin care routine at home. The team at Meridian Aesthetics and Wellness can give you a full list of changes you can make according to your current habits, but generally, you should:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Use sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days
  • Use a moisturizer
  • Avoid drinking too much alcohol
  • Quit smoking
  • Get plenty of sleep every night

You generally won’t need any downtime for recovery after a Tempsure treatment, and you can resume all other daily activities right away. Some clients may have slight redness which generally resolves after 30-60 minutes. Clients often choose to have this treatment the day of a special event, as they often have an amazing glow right after treatment!
