Wrinkles and Fine Lines


Wrinkles and fine lines are sadly a natural part of the aging process. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, leading to increased skin laxity. This laxity results in the development of deeper, more defined wrinkles. The appearance of these lines often reduces confidence and leads to a poorer self-image. Illuminate Plastic Surgery is excited to offer our fast and effective line of wrinkle reduction treatments. Our firm belief is that beauty should be natural and personal. If you’re interested in rejuvenating your look and creating a unique beauty standard, request a consultation appointment today.

Why Do I Have Wrinkles and Fine Lines?

Wrinkles and fine lines occur due to repetitive facial movements and excessive sun exposure. To make matters worse, natural collagen loss through aging makes the appearance of wrinkles almost inevitable. As we age, the collagen and elastin content of our skin declines. Once this decline has started, reversing the aging process becomes impossible without aesthetic treatments.

Options for Treating Wrinkles and Fine Lines

  • Facelift– A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is the most effective approach to treating wrinkles and sagging skin in the lower and middle face to create a younger look.
  • Forehead LiftA forehead lift or browlift improves the appearance of horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles, elevates a drooping eyebrow and can restore a more youthful, rested and less “angry” appearance.
  • Neck Lift – The purpose of the neck lift is to remove fat and excess skin from the neck in order to reduce age-related neck wrinkles and creasing.
  • J-Plasma Renuvion – The energy used by our J-Plasma Renuvion device can promote skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation, encouraging your skin to regrow new cells in a very controlled manner. This re-growth can accelerate healing, effectively reducing the appearance of acne scarring.
  • CoolPeel™ – CoolPeel™ is a special laser skin peel procedure that cools the skin as it reduces the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, acne scarring and pore size. Long term, CoolPeel™ can effectively improve skin texture without downtime.
  • HydraFacial© – This treatment option uses super serums rich with natural, nourishing ingredients to promote skin rejuvenation. HydraFacials work by first cleansing your skin through gentle exfoliation, then removing debris from clogged pores, and finally saturating your skin in antioxidants to maximize your natural glow.
  • Dermal Fillers – These treatments are most often used to augment lips and cheeks, soften nasolabial folds, reduce dark circles, smooth wrinkles, and balance asymmetry in the face.
  • Sculptra® Aesthetic – Sculptra Aesthetic is a biocompatible dermal filler gel that can enhance the production of collagen and reduce the appearance of specific acne scars all in one go.
  • Vivace™ – Vivace™ combines precision microneedling and radiofrequency technology for highly effective acne scarring reduction results with minimal or no discomfort.
  • Neurotoxins – Neurotoxins such as Botox® and Dysport® are frequently used to treat fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes.
  • Fractional Laser Resurfacing – This laser uses a technology known as fractional resurfacing to deeply penetrate the top layer of skin without damaging it. This penetration allows for effective acne scar treatment and overall skin rejuvenation.
  • Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion treatment for age spots involves a mild abrasion followed by vacuum suction to remove dead skin cells. The result of this process is the emergence of new, softer surface skin.
  • PicoSure® – The PicoSure® laser rapidly delivers pressure to even out acne scarred skin and provide effective relief from unsightly hyperpigmentation. This powerful laser is also an excellent choice for tattoo removal.
  • Smartskin+ CO2 – Smartskin+ is the most advanced, fully customizable micro-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatment available, providing powerful and effective acne scar reduction without downtime.
  • Chemical Peels – A chemical peel is a way of rejuvenating your skin, making it look and feel fresher and younger, through the use of a chemical solution applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off.
  • Cryofacial –  A cryofacial is a safe, non-invasive technique that uses the body’s own healing processes to smooth and rejuvenate your skin.
  • Dermaplaning – Dermaplaning is a fast, simple and effective procedure for restoring your facial skin. This process immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz).
