Whether you’re 35 and just beginning to see the first signs of aging, or 55 with skin that isn’t exactly keeping your birthday a secret, seeking ways to reduce facial lines and wrinkles is probably on your agenda. Facial Lines are created for various reasons, and when you know the cause – you can choose the right treatment to get you the best results!

  • Fine lines and subtle textural changes can be treated with Microdermabrasion, DermaSweeps, and superficial Chemical Peels. These procedures have minimal downtime and are great for “maintenance” management.
  • Deeper more etched lines and surface irregularities are best corrected with Laser Resurfacing, MicroNeedling and medium-to-deep Chemical Peels.
  • When lines become wrinkles and folds, then Facial Fillers are the best answer to improve your appearance!

Skin Care

Around age 40, you cross that line — your collagen and elastic tissue have experienced enough damage to really start showing a change. You look in the mirror, and uh-oh, you can no longer ignore it or easily cover it up. Protecting your skin year-round will help prevent you from further accelerating your age.

Studies have shown the following ingredients can reduce wrinkles. Most are found in a variety of skin-care treatments, both prescription, over-the-counter, and with Fiona WRxIGHT MD Skincare.

Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs): These natural fruit acids lift away the top layer of dead skin cell, and can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes. New evidence shows that in higher concentrations, AHAs may help stimulate collagen production.

Retinoids (Vitamin A): The only FDA-approved topical treatment for wrinkles is tretinoin, known commercially as Retin A, and though it is effective it can be unbearably irritating for sensitive and normal skin types.  Retinol is a natural form of vitamin A found in many over-the-counter products. Studies show that in a stabilized formula, in high concentrations, it may be as effective as Retin A, without the side effects, such as skin burning, redness and flaking.

Topical vitamin C:  Studies at Tulane University, among others, have found that topical Vitamin C can increase collagen production, protect against damage from UVA and UVB rays, correct pigmentation problems, and improve inflammatory skin conditions.

Idebenone. This chemical cousin to the nutrient coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a super-powerful antioxidant. In one study published recently in the Journal of Dermatology, doctors found that with just 6 weeks of topical use, there was a 26% reduction in skin roughness and dryness, a 37% increase in hydration, a 29% decrease in lines and wrinkles, and a 33% overall improvement in sun-damaged skin. Other studies have found similar results.

Microdermabrasion/DermaSweep

Microdermabrasion and DermaSweeps are skin restoration procedures that aim to produce smoother, clearer and younger looking skin. It is also used for skin problems such as acne, blackheads/whiteheads, sun damage and fine lines. Both treatments are painless and the results can be seen in just one visit! There should be no side effects and no “down time” for recovery.

Microdermabrasion treatment involves using a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals to exfoliate the dead, outermost layer of skin – while a controlled vacuum gently removes the debris. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living cells that are soft, smooth and receptive to nutrients. The procedure is performed using a hand piece that the aesthetician passes over the skin. This evenly removes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the abrasion and the vacuum. This promotes new collagen which thickens the dermis and improves resistance to ageing.

As featured in Elle Magazine, DermaSweep-MD is a third generation microdermabrasion that is only available through your physician. This innovative treatment does not use crystal particles or abrasive diamond tips. Instead, it uses patented bristle tips to exfoliate away skin layers to reveal new healthy skin underneath. Your treatment can also be further customized with the addition of Epi-Fusion Serums which are skin specific treatment solutions.

Chemical Peels

There are several types of Chemical Peels available and they come in varying strengths, and formulations. They can be used to treat a number of conditions such as acne (including acne scarring), fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage. Chemical Peels are designed to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing the dead skin cells. After treatment, the new regenerated skin is smoother, fresher, more radiant and appears less wrinkled. The type of skin peel used is determined by skin type and problem areas, and an experienced physician will be able to suggest the best peel in order to get optimum results. As with all aesthetic treatments, Chemical Peels should only ever be administered by a trained, qualified professional and should only be used within a clinical environment to ensure a safe application and a good result.

 

Laser Resurfacing

At Skin MD and Beyond we offer various levels of laser treatments to resurface your skin, to ensure you get the best results. Laser resurfacing can repair skin damage, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and lessen the severity of skin irregularities like acne scars, blemishes, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone.

Lasers can work by gently removing the top damaged and discolored layers of skin and allow healthier skin to rise to the surface.  When the skin heals, new collagen is formed which will create a smoother surface.  The ReSurFX Laser is the newest fractional laser treatment, which unlike other devices, is the only true fractional non-ablative technology which requires only one pass over the skin to effectively treat scars. Why is this important? As a National Expert Panel Advisor on the ResurFX Laser, Dr. Wright will educate physicians that typical lasers deliver energy in a standard pattern that requires multiple passes which can overheat the skin very quickly causing burns and hyperpigmentation. In addition, the very advanced ResurFX scanning pattern, allows our doctor to choose from more than 600 combinations of shape, size, density and energy strength for a highly customizable treatment to fit each patient’s precise needs. No other laser has this ability.

 

MicroNeedling

DermaPen MicroNeedling is an advanced micromedical skin needling therapy. It is a procedure
which stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier and younger looking skin. It is an excellent treatment for the face to reduce and eliminate wrinkles and scar tissue, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and signs of ageing.

The treatment involves a medical pen passing over your skin which contains fine needles vibrating and poking into the tissue of the skin, targeting the blood supply, epidermal skin cells, extra cellular matrix collagen (protein that provides support), elastin and fibroblasts which all collectively repair trauma and damage to the skin. This painless procedure will create a wound healing response within the
skin which encourages new collagen to the area being treated. Over time, this collagen gives the
skin a smoother, brighter, healthier and more ‘plumped out’ look.

 

 Facial Fillers

Facial Fillers can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime! As you age, the years of laughing, smiling, talking and tanning inevitably creates creases in your skin. Over time, these lines etch in permanently and are there even when the person is not smiling. By injecting fillers under the surface of your skin, it can effectively restore the natural youthful looking contours of your face, smoothing wrinkles and filling in lines. The most appropriate lines to treat with Juvederm and Restylane are those that are described as static – the lines you can see when your face is still. With Belotero, very fine lines around the eyes and cheeks can be reduced without lumpiness.CHEEK REJUVENATIONCHEEK REJUVENATIONCHEEK REJUVENATION
