New Year, New You: Turn Back Time with Noninvasive Wrinkle Reduction

Fine lines and wrinkles are among the first signs of aging. While they may be a normal byproduct of the passage of time, most people take steps to help keep their skin looking as young and fresh as possible, whether it’s in the form of anti-aging serums and creams or common aesthetic treatments like Botox®  and dermal fillers. Aging may be inevitable, but your skin doesn’t have to pay the price. 

Dr. Gae Rodke offers a number of noninvasive wrinkle reduction and aesthetic treatments for all skin types from our convenient and centrally located office on the Upper West Side in New York City.

Youthful skin at every age

There are several factors that cause your skin to lose that youthful bounce and glow as you get older. Although everyone ages at a different pace and some people look younger longer than others, biological factors like your genes and a natural decline in collagen production eventually lead to the development of wrinkles as well as thinner, dryer, sagging skin. If you smoke, don’t drink enough water, eat a poor diet, and don’t protect your skin from the sun, it will ultimately show up on your skin.

The good news is that there have never been more options available to help you take control of your skin as you age. 

Noninvasive wrinkle treatments

You don’t have to get a face-lift or invasive treatments to give your skin the boost it needs to look younger, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Rodke offers nonsurgical, noninvasive aesthetic treatments for wrinkle reduction with Votiva by InMode® and Morpheus8.

Instead of incisions and scalpels, Votiva by InMode and Morpheus8 use mild heat from radiofrequency energy to help boost natural collagen production in your skin. Collagen is responsible for youthful skin’s firm appearance. But the body produces less collagen as we get older, speeding along the aging process

Along with more collagen production, radiofrequency may also increase blood flow and circulation to the skin. According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, radiofrequency emits low heat, which can help to penetrate the skin on a deeper level to encourage collagen and elastin production, as well as cell turnover for fresher, tighter looking skin. It has also been shown to be safe, as long as it’s administered by a licensed and experienced professional like Dr. Rodke and her team. 

Most sessions take 20-30 minutes, and require little to no recovery time (your skin may be red for about an hour after the procedure), so you can expect to return to work or your normal activities after each session.
