Aging Q & A

What causes wrinkles as I age?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They appear on your face, neck, hands, and other areas of your body that experience the most sun exposure over the course of a lifetime. Genetics, skin structure, and repeated facial expressions also play a part in how severely your skin wrinkles. If you smoke or have fair skin, it increases the likelihood of wrinkles.

While there’s not much you can do to totally prevent wrinkles -- aside from hydrating your skin and using sunscreen when you’re outside -- there are treatments that make your wrinkles disappear so you can look and feel younger again. Dr. King provides men and women in the Shenandoah, Texas, area with a variety of treatments, procedures, and skin care products to help fight the signs of aging and smooth out those pesky wrinkles.

What treatments fight wrinkles and the outward signs of aging?

Dr. King offers Pellevé®, a state-of-the-art wrinkle-reduction system by CynoSure®, a leader in the field of laser and medical aesthetic technology. The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to penetrate below the surface of your skin without damaging the epidermis (top layer). The RF energy safely heats your skin tissue to stimulate new collagen production.

As a result, your skin contracts and tightens for a smoother, rejuvenated appearance and fewer visible lines and wrinkles on nearly every area of your face.

Men and women can also come to Dr. King’s office for dermal fillers that plump up sagging skin and smooth out lines, both common signs of aging. Botox® injections can temporarily decrease muscle movement that leads to lines and wrinkles from repeated facial expressions over the years.

How do I care for my aging skin?

Since aging skin is often dryer and less elastic than younger skin, changing your skin care routine as you age is a good idea. Dr. King offers the most advanced skin care products, including ZO® Skin Health from Dr. Zein Obagi, a board-certified dermatologist and world-renowned skin care expert. You can only get ZO Skin Health products from a trained physician.

After abundant research, Dr. King decided to carry this advanced line of medical skin care products for its consistent results in helping skin appear firmer, more supple, and have fewer visible wrinkles. It’s a great choice for aging skin, and Dr. King recommends specific products to address your individual skin care needs.

What other treatments can help me grow old gracefully?

How you feel inside as you grow older is often just as important for most adults. Along with the variety of aesthetic treatments Dr. King offers, she provides the latest technology and procedures to help some of the most common problems associated with aging, such as:

  • BTL Emsella™ chair for women’s incontinence issues after childbirth or menopause
  • BioTE® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to regulate hormones during menopause
  • Vitamin B-12 shots to help with weight loss
  • O-shot® for women to improve vaginal health
  • P-shot® for men’s health and wellness
