What Can You Do To Prevent And Treat Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a normal part of aging, but they can make you look older than you feel. Fortunately there are plenty of things you can do to prevent and treat wrinkles. Keep reading to learn about your options.

Prevention
There are many things you can do to prevent wrinkles. Start taking better care of your skin today even if you still haven’t noticed signs of aging. The sooner you start, the better off you’ll be. Preventing wrinkles and taking better care of your skin will also still benefit you if you already have wrinkles. Here are a few tips to get you started:
• Do everything you can to avoid sun damage. Stay indoors between 10 am and 4 pm, wear sunscreen when you go outside, reapply sunscreen frequently, wear clothing that covers your skin, and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
• Keep your skin hydrated and healthy by using a daily moisturizer in the morning and drinking at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day.
• Wash your face daily, but be gentle. Use a mild cleanser and rub it on your face with your hands or a very soft cloth.
• Reduce stress in your life by taking a yoga class, listening to music, or spending time outdoors. Many wrinkles are caused by frowning and furrowing the brow. Stress is also hard on your skin and the rest of your body.
• Use a retinol cream at night, and sleep on your back if possible

Treatment
If you already have wrinkles, you don’t have to despair. There are plenty of options available that can help you reclaim your youth.

A facelift and neck lift can tighten the muscles on your face, remove sagging skin and excess fat, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

If you’re looking for a surgery-free way to reduce wrinkles, Botox and dermal fillers can also improve your appearance. Botox works by weakening the muscles in your face, so it is a great tool for eliminating wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. Dermal fillers are usually used to treat heavy creases in the face like the nasolabial folds (the lines between your nose and the corners of your mouth).
