Wrinkles usually occur on those parts of the body that receive the maximum sun exposure. This includes the neck, face, tops of the forearms, and the backs of the hands. There are two types of wrinkles – deep furrows and fine, surface lines. You can choose from several minimally invasive and non-invasive medical spa procedures if you are looking to prevent or reduce your wrinkles.
Dr. Q Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q), provides safe and proven wrinkle removal treatments to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.
Glycolic acid peels are a type of superficial peels. These can lighten fine wrinkles to a slight degree. Deeper peels with more potent ingredients such as phenol, TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and trichloroacetic acid perform a better job of smoothing fine lines. They can penetrate to the deeper skin layers.
You should know that deep peels have greater risk of side effects. They can cause changes in skin color and scarring. These peels are also uncomfortable.
Dermabrasion medical spa treatment involves a gentle and controlled sanding of the skin. It requires a treatment provider will adequate experience and specialized skills to safely perform this procedure. Dermabrasion side effects may include mild scarring and changes in skin color in a few cases.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing medical spa treatment is used by doctors for stimulating the production of collagen in the skin that plumps the skin. There are several different types of cosmetic lasers. You should ask the doctor about the required down time and the number of treatment sessions you would require. You should also ask the doctor about the various risks involved.
Microdermabrasion is a lot like dermabrasion and involves the removal of the outer skin layer. It makes use of a rotating brush to stimulate collagen production within the deeper skin layers. The layer of skin removed in microdermabrasion is finer than that in dermabrasion.
Injections with the ingredient prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs (Jeuveau) or botulinum toxin (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) relax the muscles that produce fine lines, frown lines and other wrinkles. You can see improvements lasting for a few months. Repeat procedures can be useful in sustaining results.
Injectable Dermal Fillers
Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane wrinkle fillers instantly volumize the depleted areas in the face. They remove facial lines and wrinkles as well. Dermal fillers are best for static wrinkles or the ones that remain at rest. Prominent folds around the nose, mouth and chin are the most commonly treated. Hyaluronic acid is a common filler ingredient since it is biocompatible.
IPL Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
These treatments can be used for treating freckles, sun spots, rosacea, and other skin conditions. The procedure can be customized for meeting individual goals. It stimulates collagen and elastin production. It also helps in regenerating the skin. These are a few improvements possible with IPL treatments:
- Broken capillaries
- Lighten age spots and sun spots
- Clear sun spots
- Eliminating skin discoloration
- Stimulating collagen production
More wrinkles can be prevented by minimizing sun exposure and sun damage. Daily sunscreen routine is an important preventative measure.
