Wrinkles are a natural part of human development: As time passes, you get them whether you like it or not. Your skin gets drier and thinner as you age, and it produces less collagen and elastin to keep it tight and smooth. Over time, wrinkles form as your skin becomes looser.
Wrinkles form in the places where your muscles flex beneath the surface of your skin. Your wrinkles tell a story about the ways that you express yourself with facial expressions. Common places for wrinkles include:
Wrinkles can form anywhere on your body, but people are typically most bothered by those that develop on their face.
No, you can’t stop yourself from getting wrinkles as you age. However, there are a few things you can do to slow down their development. The earlier you start caring for your skin and protecting it, the fewer wrinkles you have later on.
You can take care of your skin by:
Genetics play a role in the number of wrinkles you get, and there’s nothing you can do about that. However, if you care for your skin properly, you can look vibrant at any age.
Reviva Medical Aesthetics offers several safe and effective treatments to reduce your wrinkles’ appearance.
Skin tightening treatments use some form of energy to stimulate your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. They shrink your skin’s tissues to become tight against your muscles and make wrinkles less noticeable.
Botox®, an injectable medication, blocks the signals from your nerves that tell your muscles to move. With your muscles relaxed and not flexing, your wrinkles disappear for several months.
Fillers are injectable substances that fill in your lines and wrinkles to make your face look more full. They can also contain collagen-stimulating products like hyaluronic acid.
You can’t avoid your wrinkles, but you don’t have to accept them as they come, either. To explore wrinkle-reducing options, call Reviva Medical Aesthetics or book your appointment online today.
