Wrinkles are inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with them. With today’s advanced medical devices and procedures, you can safely and effectively fight wrinkles. Dr. Gladys Dupuy at Orchid OB/GYN offers aesthetic procedures ranging from cutting-edge radiofrequency treatment using Pellevé® to diverse types of injectables and microneedling. If you’re ready to restore your youthful appearance, call the office in Miramar, Florida, or book a consultation online.
Wrinkles develop from three primary causes:
Natural changes occur in everyone’s skin over time as the inner layer of skin — the dermis — produces less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Without a sufficient amount of these substances, your skin begins to thin, becomes dry, and loses elasticity or resilience.
Exposure to sunlight damages the skin — especially collagen — making you more susceptible to wrinkles.
Repetitive muscle movements
Dynamic wrinkles develop over the years as you repeatedly contract muscles used to make certain facial expressions. Examples of dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.
The Pellevé wrinkle reduction system is so gentle that it’s safe for the delicate skin on your face, including the skin around your eyes. Pellevé uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to warm deep layers of skin, which:
As your face sheds old skin at the surface, the fresh collagen and elastin produced following RF treatment replace it. Your skin becomes tighter, stronger, and more elastic.
The Pellevé system diminishes:
Dr. Dupuy offers several options for effectively eliminating or diminishing facial wrinkles without surgery:
Dermal fillers are injected under wrinkles, where they lift the area and diminish wrinkles. Dermal fillers often consist of hyaluronic acid in a gel base that naturally adds volume and hydration. Some dermal fillers contain substances that stimulate collagen production. Dermal fillers treat static wrinkles, such as lines around your nose and mouth.
Botox® injections are made from purified botulinum toxin that blocks muscle contraction in precisely targeted areas. As the muscles relax, their associated dynamic wrinkles are either eliminated or significantly diminished.
Platelet-rich plasma injection
Injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) rejuvenate your skin and diminish wrinkles by stimulating collagen production and tissue regeneration.
The Dermapen controls 12 fine, small needles that make micro-thin punctures in your skin. This process, called microneedling, triggers collagen production. Microneedling can be done alone or combined with PRP for optimal skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.
