Wrinkles Q & A

Why do I have wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural consequence of aging, and everyone develops wrinkles over time. As you age, the collagen and elastin that keep your face taut and plump start to decrease. Your skin becomes thinner and less elastic, and the underlying tissues reduce in volume. Consequently, you develop lines and wrinkles.

One of the main factors determining when and how you age is genetics, so if your parents developed wrinkles prematurely, the chances are you will as well. Other factors can accelerate aging and cause wrinkling, including:

  • Exposure to the sun
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet

Wrinkles aren’t anything to worry about, but people often wish they could reverse the aging process and return to having smooth, plump skin. Green Valley Primary Care provides expert treatment for rejuvenated skin.

What can I do about my wrinkles?

Adopting a healthy diet, making sure you stay hydrated, and protecting your skin from the sun are all important ways to delay the formation of wrinkles and keep your skin healthy.

Certain substances such as retinol and hyaluronic acid help keep your skin looking younger too, so buy facial products that contain these ingredients.

There’s also a range of treatment options for reducing lines and wrinkles, including:

  • Botox®
  • Facial fillers
  • Chemical peels
  • Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion
  • Skin tightening
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Radiofrequency treatment

At Green Valley Primary Care, the team uses the TempSure Envi aesthetic platform to smooth out wrinkles and rejuvenate skin.

How does TempSure Envi work?

TempSure Envi uses radiofrequency waves to heat your skin, making it contract and giving an instant tightening effect. The continuing application of heat to the tissues triggers the production of new collagen fibers that over the next few months increase the plumpness of your skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles.

TempSure Envi has FDA approval as an aesthetic treatment and is safe for any type of skin. It’s a gentle, noninvasive form of treatment that doesn’t require anesthesia, and you won’t have to take time off to recover from the procedure. TempSure Envi can treat areas that Botox and fillers aren’t able to reach, and if used correctly it can give you a complete miniature face-lift.
