Wrinkles Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles on the surface of your skin are a natural part of the aging process. Wrinkles and fine lines appear as the production of collagen and elastin, two types of cells that keep your skin firm and pliable, slows down. 

As your skin becomes less firm, it sags and creates creases and fine lines, especially over areas where your muscles are active. Areas prone to wrinkles and fine lines include the mouth, eyes, neck, and chin. 

Some lifestyle choices can cause early or more dramatic signs of aging, including: 

  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Poor nutrition
  • Drug use
  • Excessive alcohol use
  • Sun exposure
  • Stressful lifestyle

Once wrinkles appear, they don’t fade without treatment. Livingston Family Healthcare offers noninvasive options for reducing your fine lines and wrinkles and helping you look and feel younger and more vibrant. 

How can Cynosure® treatments help my wrinkles?

The team at Livingston Family Healthcare proudly offers state-of-the-art products by Cynosure to help you regain your youthful appearance. Utilizing revolutionary technologies, TempSure Envi and Icon treatments provide painless, effective, and noninvasive wrinkle reduction for:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Laugh lines
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead creases 

Cynosure TempSure Envi uses radio-frequency energy, and Cynosure Icon uses therapeutic levels of laser energy to target the skin underlying your wrinkles and fine lines. 

These treatments disrupt the cells and tissues enough to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, which firms and tightens your skin over time. 

What are the benefits of Cynosure treatment for reducing wrinkles?

There are a variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, including chemical peels, face-lift, microdermabrasion, microneedling, and more. 

Cynosure treatments offer unique benefits for wrinkle reduction, including:

  • Less pain and discomfort during and after treatment
  • Stimulation of natural immune response
  • Natural regeneration of tissues and cell growth
  • Improved blood circulation 
  • Reduced inflammation, redness, and swelling
  • Less risk for infection or complications
  • Short, convenient sessions of 20-90 minutes
  • Gradual improvement over time
  • No recovery or downtime needed

With TempSure Envi and Icon treatments, the length and number of sessions depend on your goals and the location and quality of your wrinkles. Dr. Beaty discusses your customized treatment plan during an initial consultation and shares what you can expect during your session.
