While getting older is inevitable, looking older is not.
Aging is simply a part of living, and it’s only a matter of time before we start to develop fine lines and wrinkles on the face, chest, and neck. How early these changes occur is determined by heredity, skin type, and the amount of sun exposure you’ve had in your lifetime. At Reflections, we have the expertise and technology to help you look your best and most vital, regardless of how many candles were on your last birthday cake.
“I can now say that I feel better about my appearance than I have in years. I recently attended my younger brother’s wedding where family and friends were amazed at how I looked.”
What Causes Wrinkles to Form on the Face?
- Sun damage and environmental factors destroys the skin’s elasticity by breaking down collagen and elastic.
- Wear and tear of repeated facial expressions bend the skin, creating grooves that turn into lines, and later, deep wrinkles.
- Skin thins over time a natural aging leads to a loss of collagen and elastion, destroying the skin’s ability to bounce back from repeated movements, leaving lines and grooves that will eventually become deep wrinkles and folds.
- Loss of normal fat pads (volume) deflates the face, causing the skin to droop forward and down, creating folds and jowls around the mouth and nose.
- Gravity, genetics, and age play a role in how quickly we age, the quality of our skin, and the ability of our skin to resist wrinkles.

What Can I Do About my Wrinkles & Fine Lines?
Soften Facial Expressions To Reduce The Damage That Causes Wrinkles
BOTOX® and DYSPORT® are well-known injectables that help relax overactive muscles and soften facial expressions. When done well, both of these products produce a gentle, natural result, rather than a frozen, fake look. Our award-winning physician injectors have mastered the nuanced art of preserving your natural facial beauty and movement while protecting against the harmful effects of repeated facial expressions.
Our Botox and Dysport injections will help to retrain your facial muscles to protect your youthful appearance while enhancing your natural beauty.
Fortify And Strengthen The Skin Against Damage
Building new collagen support underneath the skin is the key to restoring the skin’s natural elasticity and bounce. This makes the skin stronger and better able to resist wrinkling.
LASER SKIN RESURFACING uses fractional lasers to target the collagen layers for new growth. These lasers can also treat pigment (dark or red spots), create a tightening effect, and reverse sun damage. We offer all of the best lasers, each FDA-Approved, to ensure our patients have access to the laser treatments that will create the best results and best suit their lifestyle needs.
RF MICRONEEDLING delivers radiofrequency energy at precise depths within the skin to remodeling and rebuilding the collagen and elastin support layers, for skin that is stronger and more resilient, naturally. Microneedling has gained tremendous popularity for treating skin texture issues in the past few years, but adding radiofrequency delivered and precision depth delivery to the system makes RF Microneedling the new gold standard in fractional skin rejuvenation.
SCULPTRA™ is an injectable collagen-stimulator that works to induce widespread skin strengthening. Our skin naturally thins with age. This process usually starts to become noticeable in our 50s, but athletic patients and those who have experienced weight-loss may see this effect earlier in life. Sculptra is a downtime-free approach to rebuilding the collagen and volume that supports the skin, for a natural, youthful look.
NOVA™ PDO MESH is an injected mesh of collagen-stimulating fibers. By creating a support mesh under the skin, the skin is immediately fortified against further damage along existing wrinkles and lines. The mesh dissolves over 3-6 months, stimulating the body to build new collagen support as it dissolves, for results that are long-lasting and completely natural.
Skin Tightening & Lifting Technologies
THERMAGE is a non-invasive radiofrequency treatment that encourages collagen and elastin growth and tightening and can be used for most areas on the face and body.
THERMISMOOTH is a non-invasive radiofrequency treatment that encourages collagen and elastin growth and tightening and is ideal for lifting and tightening above and below the eye.
ULTHERAPY is a non-invasive, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that precisely targets certain layers of the skin to tighten and lift. It can be used for face, neck, or body.
EXILIS ULTRA 360′ combines radiofrequency and ultrasound in a non-invasive treatment for fast, impressive skin tightening results.
THERMITIGHT is an injectable radiofrequency device that provides profound results for the lower face and neck, as well as body. This non-surgical approach provides the most impressive results that we have seen without surgery.
PRECISIONTX is an injectable laser tightening procedure. By performing the laser treatment underneath the skin, we are able to achieve greater skin tightening and lifting. This procedure can easily be paired with liposuction and is ideal for the neck and lower face, as well as many areas of the body.
NOVA PDO THREADS and SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT are injectable lifting filaments that provide instant results. This new technology is changing the way we view downtime-free procedures. In the past, any procedure that provided immediate results had a significant downtime recovery period. With these treatments, patients walk out of the office with a noticeable lift for face and neck and see their results improve over 3-6 months as the threads dissolve and are replaced with new collagen growth.
MINI FACELIFT performed under local anesthesia offers dramatic skin tightening and lifting, without the significant downtime and recovery of a full facelift surgery.
Lift the Skin by Replacing Lost Volume and Creating New Support Within the Skin
DERMAL FILLERS replace lost volume and spur the growth of new collagen and elastin support in the face for natural-looking results with little to no downtime.
FAT TRANSFER removes unwanted fat from the stomach, hips, or love handles to use in replacing the fat that the face has lost with age.
Build A Stronger Foundation By Lifting Muscles That Have Sagged With Age
FACELIFT surgery performed under local anesthesia provides deep rejuvenation and a strong foundation for years of natural-looking rejuvenation. This is the only procedure which offers comprehensive rejuvenation of all 3 layers of the aging face – the muscle, fat, and skin – for the longest-lasting and most profound results.
What Can I Do To Prevent Wrinkles From Forming In The Future?
Use Skincare Products That Protect Against Damage And Improve Skin Self-healing
SUNSCREEN + RETINOL + MOISTURIZER
Sunscreen helps block UV rays, which are known to cause the vast majority of wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. In Caucasians and light skin tones, clinical studies show 80% of visible aging is directly due to sun exposure. So daily use of a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is critical to preventing wrinkles.
Next is Retinol. Retinols and retinoids are derivatives of Vitamin A. Retin-A is the strongest form and is only available by prescription. But you’re best to start with a lower strength retinol anyway and work your way up as you age. Retinols work by encouraging cell turnover and are the only topical skincare item that has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles over time.
Finally, many of the fine lines on your face and neck can be minimized by using a good moisturizer. Soft, hydrated skin is not only better suited to stand up to wear and tear but also to look smoother and more youthful doing it.
Soften Facial Expressions To Reduce The Damage That Causes Wrinkles
BOTOX® and DYSPORT® are two brands well-known for their ability to temporarily soften and relax the overactive facial muscles that create wrinkles. Injections with these products are helpful to prevent fine lines from turning into deep-set wrinkles. Xeomin is another brand of similar product that helps to relax muscles, with a slightly shorter duration of the result.
Grow More Collagen, Naturally
LASER SKIN RESURFACING, RF MICRONEEDLING, ULTHERAPY, and THERMAGE are all wonderful treatments to use preventatively. These treatments can help your body grow more collagen and elastin to combat natural loss of these skin support fibers.
