Wrinkles Removal Q&A

What is wrinkle removal?

Wrinkle removal is a form of aesthetic procedure that tightens your skin to diminish the appearance of skin folds and fine lines. There are several different methods of wrinkle removal, but they all work to give you smoother, more youthful skin.

Dr. Pham helps you explore all of your options for wrinkle removal during your consultation. He offers noninvasive wrinkle removal options for patients who aren’t ready or willing to commit to a face-lift or other skin tightening surgery. 

Without undergoing surgery, you can relieve wrinkles with Botox® injections or with energy-based noninvasive treatments. 

How does wrinkle removal work?

The wrinkle removal treatment options that Dr. Pham offers use energy to heat the tissues beneath your skin and cause the collagen fibers to contract. Collagen fibers are structural proteins that keep your skin firm. Your options for wrinkle removal and skin tightening treatments are:

Laser procedures

Lasers are intense beams of concentrated light. Certain wavelengths of light work well to penetrate your tissues without damaging them and promote collagen rebuilding within your skin. 

Radiofrequency procedures

Radiofrequency treatments use radio waves to heat your deep tissues and elicit a healing and rebuilding response.

How do wrinkles form?

Everyone gets wrinkles eventually, but some people get them earlier in life or more severely than others. During the natural aging process, your skin loses some of its firmness and elasticity as your collagen and elastin fibers deteriorate. Your skin becomes thinner and drier with age and makes your skin more prone to becoming wrinkled. 

Beyond the natural process, these other factors cause wrinkles to worsen:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Obesity
  • Ultraviolet (UV) rays
  • Facial expressions and movements
  • Harsh skin products

After your laser or radiofrequency wrinkle removal procedure, Dr. Pham can help you find products and strategies to keep your skin tighter for longer. The results aren’t permanent because the aging process doesn’t stop, but you can slow it down by getting these treatments and taking care of your skin between them.
