Facing the Facts About WrinklesAs a natural part of aging, wrinkles typically appear and are most prominent on skin that’s frequently exposed to the sun. Those areas include the face, neck, hands, and forearms.
Genetics can play a part in how an individual wrinkles, but more commonly, exposure to the sun plays a major role in causing wrinkles – and it’s especially a major issue for people who have fair skin. Other contributing factors include smoking and airborne pollutants.
However disheartened you feel about wrinkles, take hope in the fact that there are plenty of options available to you now that can help reduce their appearance and make them less visible. The entire staff at our New York City MedAesthetics office is dedicated to providing you with state-of-the-art treatments and regimens that can help you look and feel your best at any age.
Treatments Available to you at Aristocrat MedAestheticsBBL SkinTyte™ from Sciton Aristocrat is one the few New York plastic surgery practices that offers BBL SkinTyte, an advanced technology for laser skin tightening. BBL stands for “Broadband Light,” a cutting edge development in laser treatments that can achieve non-surgical skin tightening of large areas with no downtime.
The pulsed light of the device heats the skin deeply, while cooling the surface of the skin. The heat causes the skin cells to contract and tighten. The treatment also promotes the production of collagen, so the results continue to improve for up to four months.
BBL is great for any area with loosened skin, including the face, jowls, neck, stomach, and thighs. Depending on the treated area, you will need two to four treatments spaced two to four weeks apart, with final results visible in two to six months. The results are long-lasting, but you will need to have periodic maintenance treatments to maintain your appearance.
ThermiSmooth™ ThermiSmooth is the first FDA-approved aesthetic device that uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency to smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth and the eyes, such as crow’s feet. The technology uses the “Science of Heat” because temperature is its clinical end point.
The results of ThermiSmooth are immediate and long-lasting, and the procedure is non-invasive. Collagen production is also stimulated, so improvement continues for a period of months.
Several treatments are often needed to achieve desired results, and two or three maintenance treatments per year can maintain results long-term. Individual results may vary.
ThermiTight™ ThermiTight is the first FDA-approved radiofrequency device that uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency to tighten the skin and contour of the face or body. For the first time, cosmetic physicians are now able to treat a variety of aesthetic soft tissue and nerve conditions by applying the “Science of Heat” using temperature as a clinical end point.
For many patients, ThermiTight delivers more skin tightening than Coolsculpting and SmartLipo.
ThermiTight is a peer-reviewed protocol described as “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening.” The ThermiTight device has a tiny SmartTip™ thermistor probe, which is inserted under the skin to heat underlying skin layers to the temperature set by our physician.
The results of ThermiTight are immediate and long-lasting, and the procedure is non-invasive. Often, only one short treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. Individual results may vary.
Thermerase™ ThermiTight is the first FDA-approved radiofrequency device that uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency to smooth the frown lines that form between the brows. It uses the “Science of Heat” to improve stubborn lines for a considerably longer time than Botox.® Thermerase is a micro-invasive procedure based on a peer-reviewed protocol to disable the nerves that control the muscles responsible for frown lines.
