Anti-Aging Q & A

What are wrinkles?

Wrinkles are creases or lines in your skin that often develop over time. They can occur near your:

  • Eyes
  • Forehead
  • Mouth
  • Neck
  • Face
  • Hands
  • Arms

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging associated with decreases in collagen and elastin production. Sun exposure, smoking, and pollutants all contribute to fine lines and wrinkles, too. 

Numerous cosmetic treatments help reduce or eliminate wrinkles and give you a boost of confidence.

Which nonsurgical treatments reduce wrinkles?

The aesthetic specialists at Viva Wellness Medical Group offer various nonsurgical, noninvasive wrinkle treatments that help you look years younger. Examples include:

Botox and Dysport

Botox and Dysport are injectables that contain botulinum type A toxin. This neurotoxin blocks nerve signals to muscles to reduce muscle contractions associated with frowning, smiling, and laughing – and lines and wrinkles these facial expressions produce.

PDO MediThread lifts

PDO thread lifts contain tiny threads, or temporary sutures, your practitioner inserts into deep skin layers to stimulate collagen production, improve your skin’s texture, lift the skin, and reduce fine lines without surgery. The threads absorb into your skin over a six-month period.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure in which your provider applies ultrasound energy to your skin to tighten it naturally, stimulate collagen production, and reduce wrinkles without downtime.

Chemical peels

Your practitioner offers chemical peels for skin revitalization. They apply a chemical solution to your skin to cause older skin to flake off and newer, younger-looking, less wrinkled skin to develop in its place.

Infini RF microneedling

Microneedling is an aesthetic procedure your nurse or doctor uses to create tiny punctures in your skin and apply radiofrequency energy to it to boost collagen and elastin production and reduce wrinkles. They use a topical anesthetic to make the procedure feel comfortable.

PRP Facelift

Your provider will harvest platelets from your blood. These platelets contain growth factors that are isolated and then injected back into your facial skin. These platelets help to repair and rejuvenate your skin, giving you a younger aesthetic.

PRP Facial

PRP Facials utilize both microneedling and PRP to help reduce visible signs of aging like fine lines, scarring, discoloration, or uneven texture. This procedure produces visible and long-lasting results in just two to three days. 

Which wrinkle reduction treatment is right for me?

After reviewing your medical history and examining your skin, your aesthetic specialist lets you know which cosmetic solution best matches your needs. They might recommend more than one treatment to optimize your results.
