Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What is wrinkle reduction?

Wrinkle reduction is a noninvasive procedure that alleviates wrinkles and fine lines. Wrinkles develop on your skin’s surface as you age and lose collagen and elastin. At the same time, your wrinkles can worsen due to certain lifestyle factors and everyday choices. You might seek out wrinkle reduction after developing wrinkles due to:

  • Smoking
  • Spending time in the sun
  • Using tanning booths
  • Taking certain medications
  • Dehydration
  • Alcohol consumption

Wrinkle reduction treatments can’t turn back the clock, but they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face, neck, chest, and other areas that get a lot of outdoor exposure. Fine lines respond the best to wrinkle reduction treatments, but you may see some improvement with deeper wrinkles, too.

How does wrinkle reduction work?

At Meridian Primary Care, the team uses Pellevé® RF Wrinkle Reduction by Cynosure® to help tighten your skin and reduce wrinkles. The system delivers radiofrequency, or radio waves, deep into your tissues without any incisions in your skin’s surface.

Radiofrequency energy disrupts your collagen, causing it to tighten and contract. Furthermore, it makes your skin produce more collagen for long-term tightening and surface-level wrinkle relief. Notable wrinkles that diminish due to this process are:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin around your eyes
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Mouth wrinkles

You can get Pellevé treatments regardless of your skin tone and type, and they also work to relieve cellulite on your thighs and buttocks. 

How can I maintain the results of my wrinkle reduction treatment?

If you’re happy with the results of your wrinkle reduction treatment, you can maintain your results by making some lifestyle changes and adjusting your skin care routine at home. The team at Meridian Primary Care can give you a full list of changes you can make according to your current habits, but generally, you should:

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Use sunscreen
  • Get vitamin D via sunlight
  • Use a moisturizer
  • Avoid drinking too much alcohol
  • Quit smoking
  • Get plenty of sleep every night

You won’t need any downtime for recovery after a Pellevé treatment, and you can resume all other daily activities right away.
