How Do I Get Rid Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
As we age, our collagen and elastin production slows, and skin naturally starts to lose elasticity which can result in facial wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
The movement and expressions of our face, sun damage, and other lifestyle factors can contribute to fine lines and wrinkles and an overall dull, deflated look to our skin.
To some extent, wrinkles and changes to our skin are a natural part of aging. However, understandably, women and men alike often look to medical treatments, surgical procedures, and at-home remedies to improve the look of their skin.
The world of fine lines and wrinkle treatments can be overwhelming, with some treatments more invasive than others. Not to worry, at Xanadu Med Spa, we have a range of treatments and procedures to combat fine lines and wrinkles available to suit everyone’s preferences, goals, and skin requirements.
If you are looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and promote a youthful appearance, our expert team at Xanadu Med Spa can help. We have years of experience helping our clients to achieve their ideal skin results, and we will work with you to find the right treatments to suit you.

Common Causes Fine Lines And Wrinkles
The effects of skin aging can be increased and sped up by several everyday lifestyle factors that most people’s skin will experience at some point in their lifetime. When skin loses elasticity, it starts to sag and lose fullness.
Sun exposure, dehydration, and smoking can all increase the effects of the aging process, and genetics can play a role in how we age too.
Hyaluronic acid, retinol, glycolic acid, and vitamin C are all beneficial when it comes to caring for our skin at home and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, often the percentage of active ingredients available in at-home treatments is much lower than in spa treatments and can be less effective than the treatments you would receive in a spa.
What Xanadu Med Spa Wrinkle Treatments Might Work For Me?
Xanadu Med Spa has many treatments and procedures available to address fine lines and wrinkles that address skin aging in various ways. From dermal fillers that can be used to fill and reduce the appearance of heavier wrinkles, to hydrafacials that deeply exfoliate and moisturize the skin and boost your youthful glow.
A HydraFacial is a great treatment for those concerned about more invasive procedures or clients looking to give their skin a healthy boost and promote a youthful, radiant look. A HydraFacial cleans and exfoliates the skin while also moisturizing deep into the skin to reduce the appearance of dull skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The process consists of three steps, exfoliating and cleansing, followed by moisturizing, then treating the skin. This also helps with the build-up of bacteria and oils on the skin to reduce the appearance of blemishes. The final treatment step uses several youth-enhancing serums, such as hyaluronic acid. In addition to reducing the appearance of fine lines, a HydraFacial can also improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores.
A HydraFacial treatment at Xanadu Med Spa typically takes around 40-50 minutes and has additional benefits, such as no pain during treatment, almost instant results, and no downtime once the treatment is complete.
Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatment
Radiofrequency microneedling can be particularly beneficial for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment combines two effective procedures for boosting skin health, microneedling and radiofrequency. Combined into one treatment, these methods stimulate collagen production, improve the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and scars, and leave skin feeling glowing and rejuvenated.
Microneedling is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a device with lots of tiny needles to cause minute injuries to the surface of the skin. These tiny injuries trigger our body’s healing response and cause the skin to generate new cells, elastin, and collagen. In turn, this causes our skin to appear firmer, revitalized, and smoother and minimizes pores, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and even scars.
Radiofrequency is completely non-invasive. The treatment stimulates collagen production which leaves skin looking full, youthful, and firm. Radiofrequency treatments use painless heat waves to warm the deeper layers of your skin, which causes your body to release proteins that stimulate collagen production and tighten skin and reduce sagging and wrinkles.
Although the sound of lots of tiny needles pricking your skin could be off-putting, most clients report little to no pain with radiofrequency microneedling treatments. A topical anesthetic is not necessary and most people only report a warm sensation as the device passes over their skin. Your skin is also left primed to absorb essential youth-boosting serums after the treatment, and you can notice a substantially increased glow from post-treatment skin hydration.
- Boosts natural collagen production
- Less invasive than other skin texture treatments, such as chemical peels
- Increased absorption of moisturizers and skin products
- The combination of the two treatments can produce significant skin improvements
- Little to no downtime after treatment
- Suitable for all, regardless of skin tone
Who can have radiofrequency microneedling treatments?
Radiofrequency microneedling treatments can be administered to people with all skin types, including darker skin tones that other resurfacing treatments may not be suitable for. The treatment will particularly benefit people with loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
Co2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
Co2 laser skin resurfacing is a particular favorite of many Xanadu Med Spa clients because of its versatility and ability to improve a range of skin conditions and imperfections. Co2 laser skin resurfacing can be effective at reducing the overall effects of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, or targeting specific issues such as deep wrinkles, scars, and age spots. This treatment is also commonly known as the gold standard for achieving skin tightening.
When reducing the appearance of aging, usually targeting the neck and chest area, in addition to the face, is essential. Co2 laser skin resurfacing can be used on most areas of the body and is just as effective at reducing the appearance of fine wrinkles on the chest and neck as on the face.
Co2 laser skin resurfacing works in a similar way to many other laser skin treatments, by targeting and removing the upper damaged layer of skin, which in turn reduces the imperfections. This specific laser treatment allows the skin to recover and rejuvenate quickly and promotes rapid and significant skin improvement.
The Co2 laser skin treatment is incredibly versatile and can be used on facial wrinkles, both fine lines and deep wrinkles, loose eyelid skin, pucker marks, frown lines, brown spots and age spots, loose skin around the neck and jowls and crow’s feet around the eyes.
- Effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles and deeper wrinkles
- Helps to reduce the appearance of age spots
- Long-term results
- Reduces the effects of sun damage
- More gentle on the skin than other traditional laser treatments
- Can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the neck and chest
Non-Invasive Facelift: EmFace BY BTL Treatment
For many people, the concept of a surgical facelift is too daunting to consider. However, at Xanadu Med Spa, the BTL EmFace treatment provides incredible results with no need for needles, surgery, or invasive procedures. The treatment uses advanced technology and a 2-way approach to combat the signs of aging and fine lines and wrinkles. It builds muscle tone in the face while tightening and lifting the skin at the same time.
The EmFace treatment by BTL uses high-intensity facial electrical stimulation to activate and contract key muscles in your face that elevate most parts of your face. This electrical stimulation and contraction tones and strengthens muscles, leading to a lifted and fuller face. In addition to lifting facial muscles, EmFace increases the elastin and collagen in the skin. This treatment is essentially an overall workout and a boost for your skin and facial muscles.
In addition to making skin look smoother, firmer, and fuller, EmFace makes significant improvements to the brow, cheeks and jowls, corners of the mouth, and eyes.
- The entire treatment is completed within 30 minutes
- Painless and has no recovery time
- No needles
- Strengthens and tones facial muscles
- Increases collagen and elastin fibers
- Immediate lifting effect after the first treatment
Facial muscle contractions and the patterns in which our face moves when we make expressions can play a significant role in developing wrinkles, particularly frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles.
Botox, or Botulinum toxin, treatments work with our muscles to reduce contractions of the muscle that it is injected into. Botox works by blocking the signals from our brain to the muscle that tell it to contract. For example, when our forehead muscles contract less, this can reduce wrinkles and prevent them from worsening. Although, for deep wrinkles, dermal filler may be recommended in addition to botox.
Botox treatments can both reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and prevent wrinkles from worsening, or new wrinkles from appearing. Xanadu’s expert estheticians are highly skilled in the perfect placement of botox injections to achieve the best results for the look you want. At Xanadu Med Spa, we can also use botox treatments to help with facial symmetry and change the shape of the lips.
- Prevents worsening of existing wrinkles
- Reduces the likelihood of new wrinkles appearing
- Improved appearance of existing wrinkles
- FDA-approved and non-toxic
- Long-lasting results
Dermal fillers are highly effective and almost immediately reduce the appearance of dynamic and static wrinkles and loose and sagging skin and promote youthful, plump skin.
Dermal fillers treat wrinkles and volume loss by injecting hyaluronic acid under the skin. This then binds to collagen to replenish lost volume in the area and increase elasticity in the skin for an overall fuller, more supple appearance.
At Xanadu Med Spa, we offer a range of dermal fillers to suit our client’s needs. These include Juvederm Voluma and Volbella, Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC, and Revanesse Versa. At your free initial consultation, we will review each option with you and the benefits and applications of each filler to ensure your treatment gives you the exact results you are looking for.
For the best results, dermal fillers should always be administered by an experienced esthetician. Xanadu Med Spa’s estheticians are fully licensed, experienced, and highly trained to ensure you receive the best treatment possible and the results you love.
- Highly effective at treating even deep and stubborn wrinkles
- Restores volume loss from aging
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Almost instant results
- One treatment lasts between 6 months to 2 years
