What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles can be the results of any one, or a combination of factors including loss of collagen, sun damage, smoking, alcohol consumption and also hormonal changes. Aging itself is a large contributing factor. Collagen can decrease at a rate of 1% per year after the age of 40. Sun exposure accelerates the aging process and loss of collagen. It also damages the collagen fibers so that it may no longer support the upper layers of the skin, which results in the formation of wrinkles.
Before Treatment After Treatment
Prior to the Treatment
Prior to the procedure a full medical history should be discussed with your physician or office staff. Cosmetics or facial lotions should be removed at least 30 minutes prior ro the procedure so they don't interfere with the laser treatment. The area to be treated should be clear of redness or irritation.
What to expect during Treatment?
The NLite laser treatment for wrinkle reduction is non-invasive and does not require general or local anesthesia. It is a non-ablative laser and does not wound the surface of the skin eliminating post treatment care. The light from the NLite laser targets the tissue under the skin surface stimulation new collagen growth. The new collagen growth fills in the cracks or the void in the wrinkle, reducing the crease in the wrinkle. Treatments can take as little as 1 minute up to 30 minutes per treatment depending upon the area and the number of wrinkles to be treated. There is no pain associated with this treatment. Some patients may feel a slight warming sensation.
