No one likes wrinkles, but everyone who lives long enough will eventually develop them. Your skin naturally loses elasticity over time, takes a beating from the elements, and inadequate moisturizing can worsen the problem. Wrinkles affect your appearance, and can also negatively impact your confidence.

Dr. Nikolov provides the Face Contouring wrinkle treatment as a safe, accessible way to remove your wrinkles and restore fresh, smooth, youthful skin. This revolutionary treatment is provided in the comfort of our office in a single visit and doesn’t involve the hassles or the risks of surgery.
What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are a normal, expected part of aging. The main cause of wrinkles is the loss of collagen in your skin that happens as you get older. Collagen is the protein in your skin that keeps it elastic and firm, and when it decreases, wrinkles form. Also, aging skin is not as able to hold onto moisture and oil, which contributes to wrinkles.
A few other factors can increase when you develop wrinkles. These include:
- Sun damage
- Repeated facial expressions
- Wind damage
- Fluctuating weight
- Inadequate moisturizing
Whatever the factors contributing to your wrinkles, the Face Contouring procedure is a safe and easy way to remove them.
What Is Face Contouring?
Face Contouring is a noninvasive procedure for firming up your skin and restoring a more youthful complexion. It focuses on the neck and lower part of your face, treating wrinkles, double chin, and skin irregularities. This procedure is completed in our comfortable office environment, and you can return home that same day after your treatment.
The Face Contouring procedure combines two powerful treatments: skin resurfacing and radiofrequency technology (RF). The RF uses concentrated electrical energy to zap away excess fat and remove it, while the same energy tightens your skin. Then, skin resurfacing is used to tighten up your skin further and smooth out any fine lines, scars, and uneven skin tone.
What Is The Procedure Like?
Dr. Nikolov talks with you about your aesthetic goals before determining if the Face Contouring procedure can help you. Before beginning the procedure, Dr. Nikolov ensures you have time to get all your questions answered, so you are prepared for the treatment.
To ensure you don’t experience any discomfort during the procedure, Dr. Nikolov applies a local anesthetic to the treatment area. Using a tiny probe, he then applies the radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat your skin both from the inside and the outside to complete the treatment.
The procedure is completed in a single visit, and you will be able to return home afterward. You will need a few days of recovery time, but you will start to see results immediately, with continued improvement over several weeks.
Although wrinkles are a fact of life, you don’t have to live with them. Face Contouring is a safe, simple, noninvasive procedure that combines fat removal with skin tightening and resurfacing. Face Contouring gives you firmer, more youthful-looking skin in a single outpatient treatment.
