Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

As you age, your skin just isn’t as elastic as it once was, partially because collagen production slows down. You even start losing that cushioning barrier layer of fat between muscles and deeper layers of skin, so muscles wind up working very close to your skin. 

These effects lead to lines and wrinkles that can give away your age or even make you look older than you really are.

However, the age you start developing wrinkles and how severe they become depends on your genetics. Your personal history of sun or ultraviolet (UV) light exposure from tanning beds also plays a role. 

If you smoke or are constantly exposed to secondhand smoke, carcinogens can accelerate your natural aging processes and further contribute to wrinkles. In any case, while wrinkles aren’t always avoidable, they’re certainly treatable thanks to modern laser technology. 


How does wrinkle reduction work? 

Wrinkle reduction treatments with the Icon laser offered at Helena Dermatology & Montana Aesthetics PC can help you restore your more youthful skin without serious pain, incisions, or needles. 

Icon wrinkle reduction involves using a hand-held device to send beams of fractional laser energy deep into your skin.

As this energy heats underlying tissues to therapeutic temperatures — no risk of burning the surface of your skin — cells are immediately stimulated to start regenerating and turning over. 

This begins a cascade of healing events that lead to new skin tissue development, as well as the formation of new skin-tightening collagen. Those wrinkles soon become a thing of your past.


When will I see results with wrinkle reduction?

When you come into Helena Dermatology & Montana Aesthetics PC for your Icon wrinkle reduction consultation, your dedicated aesthetic practitioner evaluates your skin and talks with you about how many sessions you may need.

In as little as 3-4 weeks after your first wrinkle reduction treatment, you should start noticing that your skin is becoming tighter, firmer, and smoother. For optimal results and dramatic anti-aging benefits, you may need two or more monthly Icon laser sessions.

Once you achieve your skin goals, the team at Helena Dermatology & Montana Aesthetics PC often recommends coming in for maintenance wrinkle reduction sessions once or twice per year. This allows you to stay ahead of the effects of aging and continue looking more youthful.
