Inspiration: “You’re Never Too Old to Become Younger” (Mae West). Right? If wrinkled was not one of those things you wanted to be when you grew up, stay tuned. Considering Botox or facial fillers? Wondering about wrinkles? Here are 5 things about wrinkles that may help guide your decision…
1. How Do We Get Wrinkles?
- Wrinkles are determined by genetics
- The environment contributes to wrinkles (city smog, sun…)
- Sugar destroys the collagen and elastin in your skin
- Sleeping dominantly on one side contributes to wrinkles and loss of collagen/elastin
- The older you get, the more collagen you naturally lose
2. How to Get Rid of Wrinkles?
- Avoid sun exposure
- Don’t smoke
- Get plenty of sleep
- Sleep on your back
- Eat more salmon and soy
- Skip the caffeine
- With (professional) Medical Spa Treatments
- Botox (The injection relaxes the muscle underneath the wrinkle, so the skin on top lies smooth)
- Facial Fillers (The injection fills the wrinkles to create an even surface)
- Microneedling (tiny needles from the SkinPen create punctures in the top layer of your skin to promote collagen growth – remember my posts HERE and HERE and HERE?)
