WHAT ARE WRINKLES?
Wrinkles often appear on older adults but it can also appear on younger individuals. This happens because of the sun damage, smoking, lacking nutrients, etc. As you aged, your skin naturally becomes less elastic and more fragile. Hence, your skin produce less natural oils and become more dried and wrinkled. In additions, the fat in the deeper layers of your skin diminishes. This causes loose, saggy skin and fine lines and crevices. At It's a Secret Med Spa in Dallas, we offers a variety of wrinkle treatments to help you get the youthful appearance once again.
WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES?
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light speed up the natural aging process. Furthermore, it breaks down the collagen and elastin fibers that lie in the deeper layer of skin. Without the supportive connective tissue, your skin loses strength and flexibility. And your skin starts to sag and wrinkle prematurely.
Smoking can accelerate the normal aging process and changes the blood supply to your skin. It destroys collagen and elastin fibers and slow down new collagen production which results in wrinkles.
Repeated facial expressions like squinting and smiling can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. As your skin ages, it loses its flexibility and these grooves then become permanent features on your face.
There are other factors that can cause wrinkles. A healthy diet and exercise is recommended to slow down the aging process. Besides putting SPF on your skin to protect from sun damage, stop smoking, etc. you can also try one of our anti-aging treatments at It's a Secret Med Spa in Dallas, TX.
