Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

Karen Kim, MD, PC

How Does Wrinkle Reduction Work?

As you age, the body naturally slows its production of both collagen and elastin. This causes the skin to become limp and sag, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Using optimized laser light technology, Dr. Kim stimulates collagen and elastic production under the skin, making it appear more firm and full.

Dr. Kim uses the Cynosure Icon Aesthetic System to bring you the best in top-of-the-line, non-surgical wrinkle reduction. By using the unique ThreeForMe system, she reduces the unwanted signs of aging, erasing years from your skin.

What Kind of Wrinkles Can Be Treated?

With the Cynosure Icon, Dr. Kim can treat a variety of wrinkles in different areas. This technology can target wrinkles around:

  • The lips and mouth
  • The eyes, including crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Lipstick lines
  • Smoker’s lines

This same equipment can treat different areas of the body, including the:

  • Face
  • Neck
    Hands

    Décolletage

If you have specific areas where you’d like wrinkle reduction, schedule a consult with Dr. Kim to see how she can help.

What Kind of Results Should You Expect?

After a wrinkle reduction procedure with Dr. Kim, you should expect to see changes right away. Although more than one treatment session may be recommended, immediate results are visible. Your skin looks smoother and the procedure creates a natural look that doesn’t change the way your face appears like surgery and injections can do.

With long-lasting results and minimal downtime, there’s no reason not to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim today.

Does a Wrinkle Reduction Procedure Hurt?

No, a wrinkle reduction procedure with the Icon Aesthetic System doesn’t hurt. This non-invasive approach to wrinkle reduction uses innovative technology to protect the surface of the skin while addressing the lower layers of the dermis, where damage has occurred.

By using enhanced contact cooling that keeps skin comfortable and protected, most patients can tolerate wrinkle reduction without issue. Depending on the treatment area and each individual patient, Dr. Kim can use numbing cream to help alleviate any discomfort.

Although side effects are mild, some individuals experience a slight redness in the treatment area. This normally disappears within a few hours.
