Wrinkles Q & A

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?

As you get older, your body’s production of collagen and elastin begins to decrease. Collagen and elastin are primarily responsible for giving skin that full, smooth, and firm youthful look. It also helps your skin heal from common problems like acne scars and even sun damage.

There are several steps you can proactively take to protect your skin and keeping it from aging faster than it should, including:

  • Wear sunscreen and protective clothing in the sun
  • Avoid tanning beds
  • Drink enough water and eat a healthy diet
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Cleanse and moisturize according to your skin type
  • Don’t smoke
  • Drink alcohol in moderation

Prevention can go a long way, but there are a number of cosmetic treatments available to give your face and body a leg up over the aging process, restore your confidence, and help you look your best at every age.

When should you seek treatment for wrinkles?

You don’t have to wait for the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging to invest in aesthetic treatments.

In addition to collagen and elastin loss, sun damage can also cause your skin to age prematurely.

Sunspots and pigmentation are common problems that can also make you look older and take a toll on your skin at any age. Prevention is the best defense against wrinkles and premature aging.

How are wrinkles treated?

Dr. Darrup offers TempSure® Envi, which reduces wrinkles and improves your skin’s texture using noninvasive radiofrequency technology to heat the skin and trigger new collagen production, the skin’s own anti-aging mechanism.

TempSure ENVI works on the face and can also be used to target cellulite on other parts of the body. A typical session runs an average of 45 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities right after each session.

Many people notice an improvement in their skin’s texture right away, and the collagen production will continue to work its magic long after each session.

For more information about TempSure ENVI and whether it’s right for you, call Family Practice Center, PC center to schedule an appointment today.
