Wrinkle reduction is sought by many people due to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even at a younger age than expected. Fine lines and wrinkles are a common result of aging, but may also be caused by exposure to the sun, poor diet, smoking, stress, and other lifestyle changes. If lines and wrinkles appear when they should not, wrinkle reduction can be chosen as an effective precautionary treatment.
Wrinkle reduction treatments by Dr. Liu are a preferred form of treatment. This treatment is best suited for people who are losing elasticity in their skin and who are beginning to see signs of sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. Sessions may require as little as 30 minutes and can be completed during lunch or at another convenient time of day. Most patients need six to eight treatments per area, but the number of treatments needed will depend on individual factors. Treatments are generally performed once per week and are essentially pain-free with no downtime. Some patients even fall asleep during treatment.
Collagen production is an important part of the wrinkle reduction treatment. Radio frequency skin tightening uses RF energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production below the skin. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and tightens skin. Tissue remodeling occurs, leading to the production of new collagen. This process constitutes a substitute for facelift, with comparable results. To learn more about wrinkle reduction in the San Francisco Bay Area, please give us a call.
