Wrinkles Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but several things contribute to when you get wrinkles, like:

  • Sun exposure
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Repeated facial expressions

As you get older, your skin naturally decreases its collagen production, and your skin becomes less elastic than it was in your younger years. Your body also produces less natural oils in your skin so it appears drier and more wrinkly. As fat in the deeper layers of your skin decreases, you end up with loose, saggy skin as well.

How can I prevent wrinkles?

While you can’t do much about genetics, you can help prevent wrinkles from forming prematurely by staying out of the sun and wearing sunscreen every day. Also, when you’re outside enjoying the Florida sunshine, be sure to wear sunglasses — prescription or nonprescription — to protect the delicate skin around your eyes.

Applying a moisturizer every day to your face, eyes, and body can also help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and keep your skin from drying out. And even if you’ve smoked for many years, quitting can improve your skin tone and texture and prevent future wrinkles.

How can I improve the appearance of the wrinkles I already have?

Dr. Poulos offers men and women the remarkable technology of the TempSure Envi system. TempSure Envi is different from laser skin treatments in that it uses a controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat the deeper layers of skin tissue. The system has built-in temperature control so when the tissue reaches its desired therapeutic temperature, it doesn’t get any hotter, reducing the risk of damage.

As the RF energy heats up the layers beneath the surface of your skin, it triggers your body’s natural response to produce new collagen cells. The new collagen is firmer and smoother, as your skin was when you were younger, so you appear more youthful after TempSure Envi treatments. The treatment isn’t painful, but rather a comfortable experience, much like a hot stone massage.

TempSure Envi treatments make it possible to smooth wrinkles and tighten skin without surgery, needles, or downtime. It’s even safe enough to use on any skin type, and safe for the delicate skin around your eyes where crow’s feet form.
