It’s impossible to avoid the effects of aging altogether, but you can certainly reduce the appearance of wrinkles without surgery. At Renew Laser Aesthetics in Poulsbo, Washington, you can meet with board-certified physician Manfred Henne, MD, PHD, and his specialized aesthetic team to start down the path to dramatically smoother skin. Find out if cutting-edge, noninvasive laser wrinkle treatments are right for you by requesting an appointment online or over the phone.
Wrinkles are an unavoidable side effect of aging. Part of the reason wrinkles form is because you gradually lose that cushioning layer of fat that separates your facial muscles from your skin. This forces your skin to fold and crinkle with each facial expression you make.
Wrinkles also develop because you start losing skin-firming collagen and elastin. Because your skin won’t be able to bounce back like it could when you were younger, those lines and wrinkles that form with expressions can’t flatten out.
Although you can’t stop wrinkles from forming entirely, you can certainly reverse the signs of aging and restore your youthful, firmer skin with Icon™ by Cynosure® wrinkle reduction treatments. Depending on your specific treatment plan at Renew Laser Aesthetics, your practitioner uses Icon’s laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) energy to target the deeper layers of your skin.
As the light beams penetrate your skin’s sublayers, tissues heat up (to a safe temperature, so you don’t get burned). Your brain gets a signal that an injury is occurring and jumps into action to start healing.
Cells quickly start regenerating, building up healthy, new tissue, while old, damaged cells get pushed away. Over the following few weeks, that new skin — that’s full of collagen and elastin — starts making its way to the surface. You’re left with beautifully younger, tighter, smoother skin.
You can take several measures to ensure your wrinkle reduction treatment from Renew Laser Aesthetics lasts for as long as possible. Though most men and women find that they have dramatically more youthful skin about four to six weeks after their Icon session, if you have deeper grooves and wrinkles, you could need additional sessions.
Once you reach your optimal results after your Icon laser treatment, your practitioner may suggest coming back in to Renew Laser Aesthetics once or twice a year for re-treatment. Even if you aren’t worried about new lines and wrinkles, regular treatments with the Icon system can ensure your skin stays firm and tight and help you prevent future wrinkles.
