It’s a subtle difference, but if you’re interested in medical aesthetic treatments, your provider may distinguish between wrinkles and rhytides. While rhytides can be a term that’s tossed around as a stand-in for wrinkles, the two aren’t exactly the same. For the most part, rhytides are fine lines and minor creases that appear first, while wrinkles are the deeper folds or creases that often follow rhytides. Seeking treatments for rhytides can be the most effective way to keep skin looking smooth and firm, but there are solutions for deeper-set wrinkles as well.
Radio Frequency-Based Wrinkle Reduction Treatments
To get to the root of your wrinkles, it’s necessary to tap into your skin’s natural collagen and elastin production cycles. This helps to boost skin health from below the surface for a smoother, firmer appearance and results that last longer with the proper follow-up skin care regimen. Non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments utilize radio frequency (RF) energy that is delivered below the skin’s surface where it is transformed into heat. This kickstarts skin’s natural repair cycle, boosting the production of collagen and elastin fibers to support skin health while achieving a noticeably smoother, younger-looking appearance on the surface.
Treatment plans may also be customized based on your personal aesthetic goals, whether it’s to treat static rhytides, dynamic wrinkles, or other fine lines, creases, or crepe-like skin in between.
