Most people know that face wrinkles occur with aging. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and becomes rougher. In addition, you lose volume in the mid-face due to fat loss. With skin that is less elastic and has less fat support, your skin sags downward causing your nasolabial folds to appear deeper. You also develop forehead wrinkles (frown lines and worry lines), mouth wrinkles, and eye wrinkles (crow’s feet).
Aging is not the only factor that contribute to face wrinkles. Repeated movement of facial muscles causes forehead wrinkles and mouth wrinkles. UV radiation of the sun is a primary factor to face wrinkle formation. UV radiation damages elastic fibers in the skin, causing the skin to sag. Other contributing factors include stress, lack of sleep, smoking, and poor nutrition. These factors cause fine lines on the face, even at young age.
There are many things you can practice to slow down the effect of aging on your skin and to reduce face wrinkles and fine lines. Wear sunglasses and apply sunscreen to reduce the effect of UV radiation on the skin. Apply skin moisturizers daily. Get good sleep and exercise to reduce stress. Eat a healthy diet. Do not smoke as smoking break down skin collagen.
Are you are concerned about face wrinkles or fine lines in your face? There are several anti wrinkle / anti aging treatments available. The two primary wrinkle treatments are Botox and filler injections. Botox and Dysport are made of Botulinum, a chemical that can relax the muscles under the skin. Relaxing facial muscles reduce face wrinkles. . Botox and Dysport injections are very effective for treatment of forehead wrinkles, mouth wrinkles and eye wrinkles. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane correct volume loss, especially in the mid-face. They are effective for the treatment of deep nasolabial fold, and for cheek and lip augmentation.
