Minimizing Wrinkles Ann Arbor, Michigan

Minimizing wrinkles

Wear and tear from sun damage, tanning, and other environmental assaults – including the passing of time, genetics, and lifestyle habits – can accelerate the degradation of collagen and elastin leading to wrinkles and sagging of skin as well as loss of volume.

Expressions can become fixed upon our face from overly dynamic muscles. Concentrating or even being deep in thought may appear unintendedly angry as if scowling.

We are all too frequently judged by our appearance. Fortunately there are remedies.

Botox can relax those dynamic muscles, softening the scowl and minimizing the wrinkles.

Loss of volume from age or weight loss can be aided by dermal fillers, restoring softer, more youthful-appearing natural lift and curves and contour to the face.

Micodermabrasion is a gentle way to retexturize the skin’s surface, working on fine lines and wrinkles as well as uneven tone and pigmentation.

IPL is a step up in treating fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, and texture. The intense pulsed light selectively targets the red and brown pigments in sun-damaged skin and applies dermal heating to aid in resurfacing.

Procerus has multiple options available for Skin Tightening. Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin repair resulting in tighter skin. Sublative radiofrequency fractional ablation provides tightening along with textural resurfacing. Cosmetic dermal fillers give an appearance of tightening by replacing lost volume, providing a lift for loose and sagging skin.

Fractional ablation (micro-wounds) to the deeper dermis, sparing the surrounding skin, stimulates both deep remodeling and superficial resurfacing with very minimal down time (3-5 days). Fractional ablation is for more resistant wrinkles, acne scars and pigment in patients that want to avoid surgical treatment. Fractional ablation also provides a significant tightening benefit.

Vela III, the latest most up to date technology no offers an adapter small enough to treat under the chin, to correct, fat and or loose skin in the lower face and neck.
