Wrinkles Q & A

What factors contribute to wrinkles?

As you get older, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, which means it loses strength and elasticity. Your skin also thins out and oil production declines. The natural, healthy layer of fat under your skin loses volume, starts to accumulate in pockets, and droops downward.

All these changes work together to create wrinkles over the years. If you spend time out in the sun without wearing a sunscreen, the ultraviolet (UV) light accelerates wrinkle formation.

The aesthetics team at Pain Consultants of Michigan/ A & R Therapies offers several treatments that can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, including microneedling, and TempSure Envi skin tightening.

What is microneedling and how does it treat wrinkles?

Microneedling is performed using a device that contains numerous very fine needles (microneedles) to gently puncture your skin. These small, controlled wounds stimulate a healing response, which in turn boosts collagen and elastin production.

When old skin cells at the surface naturally shed, they’re replaced with new cells growing up from below the skin. Following microneedling, your new skin is stronger and better-toned thanks to the extra collagen and elastin.

Microneedling effectively improves numerous cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Loose skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Brown spots and sun spots
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores

Microneedling can also be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance your skin’s rejuvenation. PRP is made from your own blood by taking a blood sample and processing it in a centrifuge. Spinning in the centrifuge separates platelets from other blood components, then they’re used for your PRP treatment.

After undergoing microneedling, your aesthetician applies PRP to your skin. The small punctures allow PRP to get under your skin, where the platelets promote healing, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the production of collagen, skin cells, blood vessels, and other tissues as needed.

How are wrinkles diminished with TempSure Envi?

TempSure Envi, or TempSure, uses radio-frequency (RF) energy to tighten your skin. RF waves safely pass through your skin to reach structures below the surface. As RF energy heats the deep tissues, it stimulates collagen production.

After treatment with TempSure, old skin at the surface is replaced with a new growth of collagen-rich skin. As a result, your skin becomes stronger and tighter, which diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
