As we go about our daily lives, we barely notice the small changes happening to our bodies. But one morning, we look in the mirror and realize that our skin isn’t as smooth or taut as it used to be. It’s a normal process — one that every person on the planet goes through, but many of us still aren’t ready for it when it happens.

But acceptance isn’t the only option. At the Appearance Care Center, our entire staff is trained to do one thing perfectly: provide you with a more youthful appearance and a great aesthetic medicine experience.

Why Wrinkles and Skin Laxity Occur

Many signs of aging are caused by a decrease in collagen and elastin, vital proteins that keep the skin looking smooth and supple. Starting in our 20s, we produce about 1 percent less collagen each year, with elastin decreasing at a similar rate. This causes the skin to become thinner, looser and drier, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.

As collagen production declines, the skin loses strength and elasticity. This makes it harder to bounce back when the muscles contract and allows gravity to pull the skin downward, resulting in visible signs of facial aging such as:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Skin sagging
  • The appearance of jowls
  • Droopy brows or eyelids
  • Unflattering turkey neck

There are other factors to consider as well, like environmental damage, UV exposure and genetics. All of these can increase the rapidity of your collagen loss and tissue degradation, an unfortunate combination that ultimately leads to lines, wrinkles and sagging in the face and jaw.

How to Treat Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a perennial issue, and there are many different paths forward when it comes to getting rid of them. Whether you are at the mild, moderate or severe stage of your wrinkle development, there is an option for you to comfortably attain the appearance and complexion you crave. Here is a list of facial wrinkle options that our office provides:

How to Treat Skin Laxity

Even with the best skincare routine, treating loose or sagging skin often requires more than topical creams, lotions or gels. We often recommend energy devices, which use ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production and gently firm sagging tissues. While they bear some similarities, these devices penetrate at different depths to address specific concerns. Your provider can help you decide which is right for you during your consultation.
