We all go to extreme lengths to ensure that we are not abusing our skin, leaving it riddled with wrinkles. However, a new study shows that the position that you sleep in may be contributing to how many wrinkles you have on your face. Basically, what this study showed is that if you sleep in any position other than on your back, you are likely expediting the appearance of wrinkles on your face. When the skin on your face is in contact with your pillow, it causes your skin to stretch and compress. When the skin buckles from this contact, it causes wrinkles. While only vampires in novels and movies are known for sleeping in one position all night long, the number of times you switch positions throughout the night can greatly contribute to even more fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your face.
Unfortunately, many people don’t know this information until it is far too late. Additionally, even knowing that your sleep positions can lead to wrinkles, there isn’t too terribly much you can do to prevent yourself from moving around during the night, with the exception of restraining yourself, which no one wants to do. With that in mind, let’s talk about how you can prevent having extremely visible wrinkles despite which way you lay while you are asleep.
How Can You Combat Inevitable Wrinkles?
While you may not be able to prevent wrinkles from rearing their ugly heads, you certainly can do a number of things to minimize their appearance, or even potentially eliminate your facial wrinkles entirely. While Botox® treatments are not likely to improve sleep wrinkles, there are several dermal fillers you may be able to get that will turn back the clock a bit when it comes to your facial wrinkles. The two most popular dermal fillers that we offer are Juvederm® and Restylane®. Both of these fillers are made to reduce as well as remove unsightly wrinkles that may be driving you insane.
What Else Can You Do To Reduce To Appearance Of Sleep Wrinkles?
In order to maintain your skin and minimize the appearance of sleep wrinkles, there are a couple of steps you can take in addition to getting a dermal filler. The best advice we can give is to simply take good care of your skin. This means eliminating your smoking habit, if you have one, as well as using sunscreen and not allowing too much sun exposure in general. Using facial toners and moisturizers will also limit the amount of wrinkles that form on your face over time.
