Fine Lines Q & A

What causes fine lines?

Fine lines are the result of photoaging and the normal slowing of structure-building elastin and collagen. Smoking and air pollutants also hasten the skin aging process that leads to fine lines.

Fine lines usually begin on the skin that gets exposed to the sun the most such as the face, neck, and hands. They tend to appear more prominent around areas of repeated muscle contraction, such as smile lines.

How can I treat fine lines?

Fine lines and wrinkles don’t require medical treatment. However, if they bother you, you can discuss your treatment options with an aesthetic specialist such as Dr. Mustafa.

Surgery, injectables, and medications are some of the options available to treat fine lines. MoodSpa is the first in the area to offer one of the most revolutionary, non-invasive wrinkle treatments available: radiofrequency.

How does radiofrequency wrinkle treatment work?

The aesthetic specialists at MoodSpa use the CynoSure® TempSure™ Envi system to treat wrinkles and fine lines. As your specialist runs the handpiece over the treatment area, Envi delivers radiofrequency (RF) waves to your skin to heat underlying layers without burning the surface of the skin.

RF heat kickstarts the production of collagen and elastin fibers and speeds up cell turnover rate. The final result is tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin.

What are the benefits of TempSure treatments for fine lines?

TempSure Envi treatments are a safe, painless skin rejuvenation option and an effective alternative to lasers and injections. The RF frequencies also penetrate much deeper than any over-the-counter solution. The treatment encourages the body’s own inherent regenerative properties without introducing any foreign substances to the body.

One of Envi’s other selling points is that it’s appropriate for all skin types. Unlike lasers, which aren’t always effective for specific skin colors or types, RF doesn’t carry such restrictions.

Lasers also tend to cause noticeable side effects like peeling skin and redness. However, RF causes only minimal side effects and requires only an hour of your schedule with no downtime.

The temperature control system has a significant advantage over other RF options. The temperature regulation feature ensures the safest, most effective treatment possible. Treatment doesn’t start until the system reaches the optimal temperature and the handpiece never reaches a temperature that could cause burns.

If your fine lines and wrinkles cause you discomfort with your appearance, contact MoodSpa online or over the phone to discuss your treatment options.
