WRINKLE PREVENTION & FINE LINE CARE

Rebuilding Your Youthful Confidence

During our earlier years, we may have lived more care-free, and endlessly baked ourselves golden under the warm sun. We may have also experienced high levels of stress that have now caused us to appear older than we really are. What can we do now to get rid of these undesirable lines and wrinkles?

Since 2009, Dr. Jodie Harper and the team at ClarityMD have helped people love their skin again. Time, sun damage, and skin conditions may take their toll, but you don't have to surrender. With our physician-guided treatments and customized product regimen, our team of aestheticians can help you minimize the fine lines and wrinkles that make you look and feel older than you are. Come and see us for a free consultation to discuss the surprising array of options available to you at our laser skin treatment center in Indianapolis.

Causes of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles develop when skin gets thinner and less elastic, causing wrinkles and folds to appear. The most common cause is simply the natural process of getting older. How fast the aging process happens, known as intrinsic aging, is primarily a function of genetics. Most people notice the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck between 30 and 35.

While we're limited in our ability to control intrinsic aging, we have a great deal of control over the other kind of aging, which is called extrinsic aging. This category includes the things in our environment that age our skin faster. Here are a few factors that can accelerate extrinsic aging.

  • Sun exposure: You probably already know some of the risks of excessive and unprotected exposure to the sun. However, many people don't realize that the sun contributes significantly to fine lines and wrinkles. The sun dries the skin and destroys collagen and elastin. The loss of those components allows the skin to sag, gather, and fold.

  • Stress: When a person experiences something particularly stressful, either acutely or chronically, the body produces the hormone cortisol. While cortisol plays a role in helping the body maintain optimal health, too much of it is harmful. During a period of high stress, the high levels of cortisol start to affect the skin and accelerate extrinsic aging.

  • Smoking: In addition to all the other adverse effects of smoking cigarettes, smoking changes the body's chemistry in ways that can accelerate aging. Nicotine restricts blood flow, so your skin doesn't get the oxygen and nutrients necessary for optimal health. These deficiencies can make you look older faster. For all these reasons and more, please consider quitting if you smoke.

  • Sleep: The quality, quantity, and position in which you sleep can accelerate extrinsic aging significantly. Sleep is restorative for your whole body. When you don't get enough rest or sleep is repeatedly interrupted, you lose those regenerative benefits. Many people don't know that your sleeping position can accelerate the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Sleeping in the same position night after night leads to the development of sleep wrinkles, most common on the chin and cheeks of women and the forehead for men. 

What To Do About Fine Lines and Wrinkles

At ClarityMD, we have an extensive menu of anti-aging options to help you minimize the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles that affect your confidence. Here are some of the possibilities with which we can help you.

  • Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix)

  • Laser Genesis Rejuvenation

  • Collagen P.I.N. – (Percutaneous Induction Needling, a.k.a. micro-needling)

  • Botox

  • Dermal Fillers

  • Sculptra® Aesthetic

  • miranique®/RES

  • VIRTUE RF Microneedling

  • Subnovii Plasma Pen

At ClarityMD, our highly-trained cosmetic practitioners can improve the appearance of these texture irregularities using laser skin treatments that are quick, safe, and mild to repair and smooth out skin at our Indianapolis office.

Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix)

Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix, is an FDA-cleared, quick procedure that treats fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks by first stimulating the regrowth of cells, in order to increase collagen production. It is popular among patients due to little to no recovery time following treatment and immediate results just after the first treatment.

 

Laser Genesis Rejuvenation

Laser Genesis Rejuvenation is an advanced skincare solution that has the ability to treat excessive skin redness, noticeable pores, texture irregularity, and fine lines. Benefits of this option include a comfortable, non-abrasive form of skin remedy, absence of unwanted side effects, and skin recovery from conditions such as rosacea.

 

Collagen P.I.N. – (Percutaneous Induction Needling, a.k.a. micro-needling)

Collagen P.I.N. addresses pigmentation, scarring, texture, fine lines and stretch marks by allowing for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-injuries in the skin.  This process stimulates new collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. This procedure is safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body. Post-treatment, patients can expect a flushed, sunburn-like appearance which will diminish within 24-48 hours.  More aggressive treatments may take 5-7 days to completely heal.

 

Botox

With this treatment option, a microneedle is used to inject the Botox protein into facial muscles that naturally create lines during expression. These muscles can be found near the eyebrows, forehead, and corners of the eye. The most notable benefit of Botox includes relaxation of muscles that result in fewer lines and wrinkles, and therefore, smoother and younger-looking skin.

 

Dermal Fillers

We offer several different hyaluronic-based dermal fillers to correct your area of concern including Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Voluma and Revanesse Versa. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Dermal fillers are an excellent treatment option for lip enhancement and correction of deep folds, facial lines, and wrinkles. The most common areas to correct are the lines between the nose and corners of the mouth as well as wrinkles from the corners of the mouth toward the chin. Our highly-trained practitioners will expertly design a treatment program to provide the best possible correction. 

 

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps replenish lost collagen and activate the skin’s natural regenerative process to restore facial volume. Sculptra Aesthetic  gradually replaces lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cell and tissue—for results that can last more than two years.* The result is more youthful-looking skin, without looking like you’ve had “work” done.

miranique®/RES

miranique®/RES is an ultra-purified, cosmetic topical containing billions of exosomes derived from stem cells. The product is used with our microneedling treatment to increase collagen and elastin production, both of which are vital in supporting skin elasticity and tone. 

VIRTUE RF Microneedling

The VirtueRF Microneedling platform is the most advanced microneedling device available today. VirtueRF technology combine sterile needles inserted deep into the dermis of the skin with Radio Frequency heat energy. These needles create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen and deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin. Scarring, skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles are effectively improved with this treatment option. Results can be seen immediately while full benefits are seen 4-6 weeks post treatment.

Subnovii Plasma Pen

Discover the power of plasma! Subnovii’s FDA-cleared plasma technology is the most advanced option available today. Subnovii’s patented energy output, LF+, allows for more targeted treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity and textural issues around the eyes and mouth with reduced healing time. This technology works with the fine layer of ionized gas, or plasma, that exists along the surface of your skin. The LF+ energy output instantly sublimates a targeted treatment area and a sealed wound is created. This delivers a shock to the tissue below which stimulates fibroblast activity creating collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production. Results can be seen immediately and your skin will continue to improve for up to 6 months after your procedure.
