Facial Fine Lines and Wrinkles Q & A

What are fine lines and wrinkles?

Facial fine lines and wrinkles commonly occur with age and can make you appear older than you are. These lines can happen anywhere on your face, especially your:

  • Forehead
  • Near your eyes
  • Around your mouth
  • Near your nose

Because fine lines and wrinkles are a sign of aging, getting rid of these lines can take years off your appearance.

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?

As you age, collagen and elastin in your skin tend to weaken, forming unsightly lines and wrinkles. While these lines are a natural part of aging, wrinkle formation is often accelerated by:

  • Too much unprotected sun exposure
  • Tanning beds
  • Smoking
  • Genetic factors

Due to genetics, some people are more prone to fine lines and wrinkles than others. Regardless of what’s causing accelerated aging, Dr. Stoll helps reduce wrinkles using state-of-the-art lasers to give you a smoother, more youthful appearance after just one session.

How are fine lines and wrinkles treated?

Dr. Stoll uses TempSure Envi and Icon lasers to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The lasers rejuvenate your skin by gently heating it, triggering elastin and collagen stimulation and production.

You may feel a slight warming sensation during laser treatment for facial wrinkles. However, the lasers’ cooling systems enhance comfort during the procedure. Your session may last anywhere between 30-60 minutes.

Dr. Stoll and her team use these new, top-of-the-line Cynosure® lasers to reduce fine lines and wrinkles:

TempSure Envi

The TempSure Envi laser uses radiofrequency energy to safely tighten and tone skin on your face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It’s safe for all levels of sun exposure and skin types. About 99% of patients find TempSure Envi treatments relaxing and comfortable.

Icon

The Cynosure Icon aesthetics system allows Dr. Stoll to complete multiple aesthetic procedures using just one laser. In addition to reducing fine lines and wrinkles, the Icon laser removes unwanted hair, reduces stretch marks and scars, fades unsightly veins, and improves the appearance of sunspots.

Using laser treatment for fine lines and wrinkles is a noninvasive alternative to surgery and there’s no downtime after. You may experience slight swelling or redness at the treated area, however.
