Spotting a new wrinkle is never fun. That’s why here at AYA™ Medical Spa, we have made wrinkle reduction a top skincare priority. Facial lines can be either dynamic or static. Dynamic wrinkles occur when you use your muscles to form facial expressions like smiling. Static facial lines are the folds and lines that appear when our facial muscles are still. We know telling someone not to smile is not exactly practical or realistic advice. Additionally, the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the face have less to do with the act of smiling itself and more to do with a lack of skin elasticity that occurs naturally over time. For anyone looking for some more helpful tips, the skincare experts at AYA™ Medical Spa have a few suggestions for how to prevent wrinkles before they develop.
Protect Yourself from the Sun
Overexposure to the sun is the leading cause of wrinkles and fine lines. The sun’s UV rays can lead to the immediate development of wrinkles and lines, as well as additional skin damage that will appear over time. So, limit your sun exposure when possible and always protect yourself with a broad spectrum sunscreen like Auspect™ Skincare Hydra Shield.
Try Skincare Products with Retinol
Daily cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing can help keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Additionally, using skincare products with retinol can be a big help when trying to prevent wrinkles. Retinol-based products like Revision® Skincare Retinol Complete™ help fight off wrinkles and lines by stimulating natural collagen production.
Get Plenty of Beauty Sleep
Getting enough nightly sleep is important for almost every area of health and wellness, including maintaining healthy skin and preventing wrinkles. We recommend 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night to help replenish your skin after a long day. We also suggest trying to sleep on your back, as sleeping on your side or stomach can cause sleep lines which may turn into wrinkles over time.
Consider a Chemical Peel
Treating yourself to a chemical peel can be a great way to rejuvenate your facial skin and reduce potential wrinkles. Chemical peels are able to safely peel away the skin’s top layer and remove sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented and wrinkled facial skin. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin that lasts.
By combining wrinkle-reducing cosmetic treatments with simple maintenance at home, you can effectively minimize wrinkles and maintain healthier facial skin.
