Read this blog post to learn and discover if these are the best treatments for you.
Causes of Wrinkles on the Forehead
Age plays a role in forming forehead wrinkles, as it does in many other skin problems. Still, just because collagen and elastin production slows down with age doesn’t mean there aren’t other factors at play.
Here are the possible causes of wrinkles that you currently experience:
- Too much sun exposure
- Strength of facial muscles
- Repeated frowning on the forehead
- Stress and Pollution
- Behavioral habits
About Static Wrinkles
Have you heard the phrase static wrinkles? Some people worry about forehead wrinkles when they see a picture of themselves smiling with a few 11 lines.
However, wrinkles don’t become permanent (or static) until they’re there, even when you’re not making a face.
Take note that static wrinkles are the ones that show up when your face is still. At the same time, dynamic wrinkles are the ones that come and go as you move your face.
Getting Away With Your Wrinkles
The general rule is that your skin will be healthier if you don’t smoke. Remember that smoking speeds up the aging of your skin in two significant ways.
First, it makes the skin have less collagen. This is an effect that happens all over the body. It makes the skin thinner and more fragile.
Second, smoking causes some parts of the body, like the skin around the mouth, to move over and over again, which makes the skin wrinkle and wear out.
So, What Doesn’t Cause Wrinkles?
Don’t believe the common belief that rubbing your eyes will give you wrinkles. Washing your face or putting lotion on in a downward motion doesn’t work either.
The best idea is that pulling down on your face doesn’t cause wrinkles because we don’t do it enough to damage the skin that way. But more than that, there are treatments you can try to avoid this problem. Here are those:
Botox cosmetic is a neurotoxin that is injected into a muscle to temporarily relax fine lines and wrinkles caused by age, overexposure to the sun, and making the same facial expressions over and over again.
It is the lunchtime procedure because it only takes a few minutes. And if ever you’re asking, do we offer it here at Beauty Boost Med Spa? The answer is Yes!
Our fillers at Beauty Boost Med Spa are one of the most effective treatments and alternatives for wrinkles. Fillers are substances that look like gel and are put under the skin. Dermal fillers are meant to make the skin look smoother and fuller.
They help “fill in” or add volume to places that have lost it. We can put fillers in the temples, under the eyes, the cheeks, the nose, the smile lines, the lips, the chin, the jawline, and the hands. Some fillers can last between 6 and 12 months, while others can last between 2 and 5 years!
How To Avoid Wrinkles Naturally?
Avoid wrinkles by going out in the sun or using a tanning bed. Do this if you only do one thing. Everyday sun exposure breaks down collagen and elastin, which leads to saggy, wrinkled skin, spots, dilated blood vessels, fine lines, and crosshatched wrinkles.
Besides, Ultraviolet rays make harmful free radicals that speed up aging and increase the risk of skin cancer. Tan beds do the same thing, but they do it faster and better. Remember to use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen every day, all year long!
And make sure to include either Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Avobenzone, or Mexoryl to protect against UVA rays that cause the skin to age.
No Alcohol and Smoking
Again, when you smoke, your skin’s blood flow slows down, and your skin and blood are directly exposed to toxins. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the repeated facial expressions make lines in the skin.
Alcohol and drugs used for fun are poisons: toxins damage cellular structures and DNA. Your body can fix some of the damage, but you can’t fix it after a certain point. It makes it look like people are getting sick.
Since they are, you’ve seen this in the people you know, infamous people, and maybe even in yourself. Moderation is a good thing to do if you want to keep your looks.
Whatever you do, don’t do recreational drugs, alcohol, and smoking together, or at least not very often. People who go in the sun and are exposed to toxins, like cigarette smoke, recreational drugs, or alcohol, are much more likely to get sick. The results don’t look good.
