Wrinkle Treatment Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are part of the natural aging process. With each passing year, you may notice more visible lines, your skin may seem thinner and dryer, and your face loses some of its youthful fullness.

While your genes play a central role in the timing of these changes, other factors, such as your lifestyle and whether you smoke, also influence your skin’s appearance. You can take steps to avoid wrinkles, such as:

  • Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher every day
  • Applying a self-tanner instead of getting a sun tan
  • Quitting smoking

 

If you already have wrinkles, you can restore your skin’s vital support structure with TempSure radiofrequency therapy.

What kinds of wrinkles does TempSure treat?

TempSure can minimize the appearance of:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines
  • Fine facial lines

In addition to treating wrinkles, TempSure can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

How does TempSure wrinkle treatment work?

Elastin and collagen are essential building blocks of smooth, youthful skin. TempSure uses gentle pulses of radiofrequency (RF) energy. The energy warms and penetrates deep within your skin to reach its aging support structure.

After treatment, your body’s natural healing process then rebuilds the tissue. The result is skin with a more even texture and fewer wrinkles.

What should I expect during wrinkle treatment?

You can expect Dr. Gdowski, Dr. Smith, or a technician at Lifetime Eyecare to perform your TempSure treatment. Your provider begins by applying a gel to your skin, then places the TempSure device over the treatment area. The device is moved in gentle in circular motions, massaging and warming your skin. The treatment is very comfortable, and 99% of patients say the treatment is painless.

Most treatments take 45 minutes or less and there’s no downtime, allowing you to get right back to your routine.

What should I expect after TempSure wrinkle treatment?

While you may notice your skin feels tighter and it may look a bit red, the redness generally goes away soon after your session is over.

Your skin’s appearance looks better in the days after treatment. Your skin creates a new network of collagen and elastin after 7-10 days post-treatment. After one month or so, your skin is fully rejuvenated with new bonds of collagen and elastin.

Depending on your individual case, you may need only one treatment session. Your provider at Lifetime Eyecare will discuss the right treatment plan to achieve your goal of smoother skin.
