5 Minimally Invasive Ways to Reduce Your Wrinkles

5 Minimally Invasive Ways to Reduce Your Wrinkles

No one enjoys seeing more wrinkles and lines appear year after year. For generations, people have tried almost everything to turn back the hands of time, from pastes made of flour and turmeric to tools made from quartz to the droppings of nightingales. 

Fortunately, thanks to advances in aesthetic medicine, effective anti-aging treatments now exist that don’t require questionable home remedies or invasive surgical procedures. And their results can be astounding. 

The board-certified providers at Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada, offer only the best when it comes to reversing the visible signs of aging on your skin. Here’s a look at our five favorite minimally invasive ways to erase your wrinkles.

1. Aesthetic injectables 

There are many cosmetic injectables to choose from if you want to rejuvenate your appearance. For reducing wrinkles, our practice uses neuromodulator injectables, like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® as well as a wide variety of dermal fillers.

FDA-approved neuromodulator injectables work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. This means that when you make facial expressions, your movements create fewer lines and wrinkles. With regular treatments, you can even help prevent more wrinkles from forming.

Dermal fillers increase volume to your face and smooth the skin. They address fine lines, wrinkles and sunken features, helping you appear younger and making your skin look more vibrant.

2. Fraxel® therapy

Fraxel laser therapy is a tried-and-true way to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. It uses light and heat energy to produce pulses of concentrated light that remove the surface layer of your skin. 

At the same time, the energy reaches below the surface to stimulate the cells that produce skin-tightening collagen and elastin fibers. This means that as your skin naturally turns over, it’s replaced with smoother, firmer skin.

3. Tetra CO2 therapy with CoolPeel®

Because the Tetra CO2 laser with CoolPeel is fully customizable, this revolutionary facial rejuvenation therapy gives you beautiful results with fewer side effects. Your Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery provider personalizes the depth and intensity of your treatment.

The laser emits short pulses of energy that are fractured into many tiny beams. The beams treat only the targeted areas, removing old skin and causing newer, tighter skin to shine through. Because the surrounding areas remain unharmed, you recover faster.

4. RF microneedling

Radiofrequency (RF) treatments use heat energy to boost your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. As a result, when your skin sheds, it’s replaced by smoother, younger-looking skin with fewer wrinkles. 

Microneedling uses tiny needle punctures to trigger your skin’s natural healing response. Although these tiny needles are too small to cause pain or make you bleed, your body still responds by increasing its production of collagen at the site of these micro wounds. 

At Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery, we combine these therapies as RF microneedling to give you a more effective wrinkle reduction treatment. As your skin naturally sheds, your new skin is firmer and smoother with fewer wrinkles. 

5. PDO thread lift 

If you’ve dreamed about a facelift to smooth away your wrinkles caused by sagging skin but don’t want to undergo surgery, PDO threading is an effective alternative. This treatment uses surgical-grade threads to lift and tighten your skin. 

That means you leave your treatment with instant results that can last for years. This is because while the threads dissolve after 6-8 months, the procedure stimulates your body’s healing process and leaves you with a continued boost of collagen and elastin.

You can get tighter, firmer skin for up to three years. Plus, you can get a PDO thread lift on your neck, too, further rejuvenating your appearance.
