Wrinkles

by Hussam Kujok, MD

What causes wrinkles?

Numerous factors can influence the wrinkles, structure, and texture, including:

  • Diet
  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Dry weather
  • Sun exposure
  • Pollutants in the environment
  • Repeated facial expressions


What treatments are available to reduce wrinkles?

The treatments for reducing wrinkles include:

  • Fillers
  • Dermabrasion
  • Medications
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser resurfacing


Botox® and laser resurfacing are two of the most popular methods. Botox injections block the signals from the nerves to the muscles, so the muscles can no longer contract. Laser resurfacing stimulates collagen production.

While there are many options to reduce wrinkles, Dr. Kujok believes that cosmetic laser treatments are the most effective and typically the best choice for more lasting results.

Some laser technologies require ongoing maintenance treatments, while others offer results in just one session. The lasers safely use gentle heat and laser energy to promote the growth of collagen and new skin. The procedures are quick, safe, and virtually painless. Topical numbing cream is applied to the area to reduce any possible discomfort.


What is Pellevé?

Pellevé is an exciting, innovative laser technology that uses heat to stimulate collagen growth and rejuvenate your skin. Radiofrequency produces the heat, and the level is adjustable. It’s a skin-tightening system that can even treat the delicate areas around your eyes and above your top lip.


What is ICON?

The Cynosure ICON Laser successfully reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by delivering laser energy deep into your skin and stimulating the regeneration of brand new skin. It’s an excellent treatment alternative that doesn’t involve surgery or an extended recovery period.

ICON is entirely safe and effective. It even has unique dual cooling modules to ensure your comfort.

The results of your laser treatments depend on the depth and location of your wrinkles, and the way your skin reacts to the laser. You may need multiple treatments to achieve optimal results.

Dr. Kujok will discuss the wrinkle-reduction laser treatments with you in more detail at your consultation, and he will devise a custom treatment plan to help you achieve your desired look.
