Creases folds and fine lines in the skin, or what we refer to ask age related wrinkles, are caused by a number of lifestyle and heredity factors. Fine lines can start to appear in the mid to late twenties. Depending on skin care and protection (including the daily use of UV protectants against skin damage) they can become more pronounced when men or women reach their early forties.
While cosmetics and other personal aesthetics like hair coloring can help us all retain a natural and youthful appearance, dealing with wrinkles and fine lines can significantly alter our appearance, and how we all feel about the image that we are presenting on a daily basis. We all want to look as young on the outside as we feel on the inside, and retain that youthful appearance into our mid and later life stages.
In this article we’re going to discuss some of the seemingly harmless things we do every day, that can escalate the progression from fine lines to deep wrinkles on the face, neck, hands and arm areas. We will also introduce the new technology and advancements in aesthetic services, that are helping our clients ‘turn back the clock’ to naturally fill and reduce the depth and visual appearance of wrinkles, without painful or expensive plastic surgery treatments.
What Factors and Lifestyle Habits Increase the Development of Wrinkles?
Your skin type is the first predictor of whether premature aging will be an issue for you. Fair to very light skin tones are most susceptible to oxidizing damage from things like cigarette smoke and pollutants, non-clinical skin care or cosmetic products and UV damage from sun exposure.
One of the most important things women and men can add to their daily routine, to help prevent further skin damage, is to add an SPF 30 moisturizing cream to their face at least once per day. It is an important habit to develop at any age, that can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by skin damage.
Facial expressions are often to blame for some of our earliest and most evident facial wrinkles. Whether you are frowning or smiling, a large network of facial muscles are working and altering the shape of your mouth, the position of your cheekbone, the angle of your eyes and eyebrows. If you are very expressive (the number of muscles used in facial expressions varies depending on the individual), you may find yourself developing deep lines on the outer areas of the eye. And also between the eyebrows, otherwise known as the dreaded “frown line”.
Another factor in the development of fine lines and wrinkles around the brow and eye regions, involve our visual acuity. With age, the quality of our vision can decline. If proper eye wear isn’t used to correct the vision, individuals can go through a period of time where they are squinting to focus.
Remember to get an eye evaluation every year and adjust your prescription; not only will it help you to see more clearly, it will also help retain the natural elasticity of your facial muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
