Minimize the Appearance of Wrinkles With Laser Therapy

Even if you were born with “good genes” or you’ve never gone outside without sunscreen, there’s still no escaping the inevitable — age-related lines and wrinkles. Though you may be one of the lucky ones who doesn’t get wrinkles until much later in life, the majority of men and women see facial wrinkles begin to form as early as their 20s.

By the time you hit your 30s and 40s, crow’s feet and forehead lines are firmly in place. Nobody wants to look old before their time, so what to do?

At Alexandria Aesthetics, Dr. Kantha Stoll, an aesthetics and internal medicine expert, believes everyone should look as good as they feel for optimal health, wellness, and a confident attitude. She offers state-of-the-art laser therapy to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines, customizing your treatment plan so you can look your best at every age.

Facial wrinkles: What you’re up against

While you may just be on the verge of graduating from college, anticipating a career and the beginning of your adult life, once you celebrate your 20th birthday, your skin starts rebelling. Where collagen was once abundant, you begin producing about 1% less of it each year after age 20. This tiny amount seems trivial, but the cumulative effects become visible on your face over time.

Skin becomes thinner and more fragile with each passing year, and you also produce less elastin — the ingredient you need for skin elasticity. With less collagen to keep your skin firm, less elastin, and years of sun exposure and repetitive facial expressions, you end up with lines and wrinkles. If you smoke or spend a lot of time in the sun, you accelerate the aging process.

Thanks to laser technology, it’s not a losing battle

As a laser aesthetics physician who remains on the cutting edge of nonsurgical anti-aging treatment solutions, Dr. Stoll has carefully selected two of the world’s most advanced laser therapy systems. TempSure™ Envi and Icon™ are both customizable wrinkle-reducing, skin-tightening technologies from CynoSure®, a leader in the field of medical aesthetics.

When you allow Dr. Stoll to customize a laser therapy treatment plan to minimize your wrinkles, you’re getting the highest standard of care and results you can see. Both systems address the natural decline in collagen and elastin by treating tissue deep below the skin’s surface. Thermal energy from the treatments stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin to help rejuvenate dull, wrinkled, and sagging skin for a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Radiofrequency and laser technology vs. wrinkles

Both TempSure Envi and the Icon aesthetic system are tough on wrinkles but gentle on your skin.

During a TempSure Envi facial treatment, radiofrequency (RF) energy jump-starts collagen production to smooth out wrinkles and give your skin a tighter, younger-looking appearance. It’s safe for all skin types and levels of sun exposure, too. Many women and men notice a more radiant glow after a single treatment.

The Icon system combines the power of laser energy and intense pulsed light (IPL) to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin, also stimulating collagen and elastin production to rebuild a stronger support structure from within. As a result, lines and wrinkles fade into the background after one or more treatment sessions.

Long-lasting results

Because laser therapy works below the surface of your skin, results last. In the weeks that follow treatment, your skin continues to generate new collagen tissue, as it did in your younger years, so the effects aren’t just temporary. Once you’ve achieved your desired youthful appearance, you may just need a touch-up every 6-12 months.

With laser therapy at Alexandria Aesthetics, it’s rather simple to minimize lines and wrinkles as you get older. No surgery, no downtime, and no looking older than you should — even if you didn’t inherit the good genes.
