You don’t have to live with wrinkles. Why Do Wrinkles Happen? Wrinkles stem from a variety of issues.
Wrinkles are fine lines or deep creases that are inevitable as we age, particularly in sun-exposed parts of our bodies. Besides sun damage, facial expressions can cause wrinkles, as well as smoking, environmental factors, and poor hydration.
Can Wrinkles Be Prevented?
While we all get wrinkles, there are many ways to minimize the formation of wrinkles.
- It all begins with sun protection. Using sunblock every day (SPF 30 or greater) is the easiest way to protect your skin. There are also many skincare products and makeup that have a built-in sun protection factor against both UVA and UVB rays. When you are exposed to radiant sunshine, it is important to use protective clothing and wide-brimmed hats.
- Avoid smoking. Smoking not only damages skin but also encourages the formation of wrinkles by squinting. Cessation of smoking is the most important portion of any wrinkle prevention regimen.
- Use Skin Moisturizers. Dehydrated skin is prone to wrinkles. Moisturized skin is plump, and it helps mask fine lines and wrinkles. Besides professional-grade skincare products, treatments like Hydrafacial and Geneo can help you maintain your skin moisturized, healthy, and plump.
- Facial expressions. We learn our facial expressions when we are very young. Avoiding squinting or smiling is difficult, but neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport can help eliminate unwanted facial expressions.
