Wrinkles Q & A

How do wrinkles develop?

Wrinkles and lines in your skin develop naturally as you age. Your skin becomes drier, thinner, and looser, while the tissues under your skin lose volume. When you’re young, your elastic, hydrated skin tends to bounce back from any movements and expressions that you make. Older skin has less flexibility and forms creases over time. 

Your body produces two proteins that keep your skin plump, tight, and healthy called collagen and elastin. When your body can’t produce enough of them anymore, your skin sags and forms wrinkles.

Where do wrinkles form?

Everyone ages slightly differently. Your wrinkles develop based on the facial expressions that you make, your genetics, your skin care practices, and the ways you move. Common places for wrinkles include:

  • Around your mouth
  • Next to your eyes
  • Between your eyes
  • Your forehead
  • Your neck
  • Other parts of your body

You can get wrinkles almost anywhere on your body. If you decide to treat them, Dr. Forbes helps you create a treatment plan based on your targeted areas.

What makes wrinkles worse?

Several factors contribute to the development of wrinkles and their severity. Your wrinkles might increase due to:

  • Smoking
  • Too much time in the sun
  • Dehydration
  • Certain medications
  • Your genetics

The development of wrinkles is not something you can completely control, but there are a few simple ways you can slow it down: keep yourself hydrated, protect yourself from the sun, and don’t smoke. 

Dr. Forbes and her team can give you other tips to slow the aging process if you’re not interested in treatments for your wrinkles.

Can I get rid of my wrinkles?

Dr. Forbes and her team can help you decide how to proceed in terms of treating your wrinkles, and if you decide to go ahead, which strategies might be best for you. At Symphony Medical Spa, she offers wrinkle reducing treatments with TempSure™, an innovative radiofrequency device that tightens your skin.

During your TempSure procedure, the device emits a gentle heat into your skin and tissues. The treatment is noninvasive, safe, and quick enough that you can get it during your lunch break. You’ll see immediate results with each session and improvements over the next few weeks.

Aging happens to everyone, but you don’t have to sit back and helplessly watch the wrinkles accumulate. To explore options for wrinkle reduction and prevention, call Symphony Medical Spa or book your appointment online today.
