How Can I Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles Without Surgery?

Collagen loss and environmental factors can lead to signs of aging on your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles affect almost everyone eventually. Fortunately, you can take steps to prevent or reduce these frustrating lines and regain your firm, youthful look. In many cases, you can achieve the results you want without surgery or long recovery times. 

What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

Several factors contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Your lines may come from a combination of many causes

  • Collagen loss that leads to skin laxity and loss of elasticity
  • Sun damage that leads to cellular damage
  • Lifestyle choices like smoking or alcohol use
  • Lack of hydration and good nutrition

In addition, genetics play a strong role in the formation of lines and wrinkles. You are likely to develop this issue at a similar age to your family members unless you take steps to avoid it.

How Can I Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles Without Surgery?

You have numerous options for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. We offer several choices so we can find one that meets your needs and suits your lifestyle.  While Botox and dermal fillers certainly smooth fine lines and wrinkles and treat volume loss, the results are temporary and require ongoing injections. The results of laser treatments tend to be long-lasting with proper skincare and maintenance and, in addition to building collagen and elastin, also address signs of aging with skin texture and tone, making them our favorite facial rejuvenation option.

Opus™ Plasma Skin Resurfacing

This treatment uses radiofrequency and plasma energy to create areas of controlled damage. This process triggers cellular renewal. Your skin responds with new collagen production that tightens the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles.  Most patients require a series of three treatments, although you will notice some results after the first treatment.

ClearLift™

The gentle but effective ClearLift™ laser treats mild or early signs of aging. These include fine lines, pigmentation issues, and signs of sun damage. This treatment causes no injury to the skin’s surface for no downtime or discomfort, and also requires a series of treatments. 

Obagi® Skincare

Medical-grade skincare is the foundation of line and wrinkle treatment. We can recommend an Obagi® skincare routine for you that meets your skin’s unique needs. These anti-aging products improve your skin from within for a smoother, firmer appearance.

Friendly and personable staff. The three Opus Plasma treatments I received went smoothly and I am pleased with the results. I now have a refreshed look. I know where to go when I need a facial treatment that gets results. Thanks you Albuquerque Vein.
