Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. Sculpt Spa in Las Vegas welcomes many clients who look for fillers for laugh lines, or fillers for smile lines. We offer a wonderful program of anti-wrinkle options. Our Restylane family of products uses the natural occurring hyaluronic acid in face filler treatments that remove wrinkles while adding symmetry to the face.
Our anti-wrinkle regimen uses neuromodulators that block nerve impulses that soften existing wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming in the first place.
Why Does Wrinkling Occur And How Can You Take Steps To Prevent Or Minimize It?
Wrinkles are caused by several factors and most of them are beyond your control. Age is probably the least controllable, and the most prominent cause.
Your skin is going to get more fragile and less elastic as you get older. It does not produce as much natural oil which dries your skin causing wrinkles to appear. Fat in the deeper layers of your skin also lessens. This makes your skin sag more, especially since it is less elastic, and creates deeper crevices and lines.
Ultraviolet radiation, to which we are all exposed, accelerates the natural aging process. UV light breaks down your skin’s connective tissue that lies in the deeper layers of skin and consists of collagen and elastin fibers. It is the primary cause of early wrinkling. When your connective tissue weakens, your skin sags and wrinkles due to the loss of strength and flexibility.
Smoking has a major effect on collagen, and reduces blood flow to the skin, and will cause early wrinkling. Alcohol dehydrates the skin and makes it susceptible to wrinkles.
The movements of your face contribute to wrinkles as well. Those movements and expressions, such as squinting, frowning, smiling, and chewing, can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. When you use your facial muscles, grooves form under the surface of the skin. As your skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back into place. These grooves slowly become permanent features on your face.
There are some factors that you can control, however, and delay the wrinkling process. Here are ways that you can slow down the wrinkling process:
- Protect your skin from the sun
Put on that sun protection! UV exposure is the problem and keeping that from soaking into your skin reduces damage. The right clothing helps and wearing hats is recommended. Experts also prescribe putting on a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher every day.
Hydration rejuvenates your skin. This hydration makes it smooth and soft. With proper hydration, you give your outermost layer of the skin has the moisture it needs to flush away toxins and to carry nutrients to the skin’s cells. In this process, it is recommended to take advantage of an infrared sauna at Sculpt Spa Las Vegas while hydrating. You replenish your skin’s moisture while sweating out damaging toxins.
- Eat foods rich with vitamins
Load up on fruit and vegetables. They can prevent skin damage. Sugar and refined carbs can speed up your skin’s aging. Added vitamin regimens can be enhanced with vitamin injections at Sculpt Spa Las Vegas including our GLOW, RECOVER and DETOX offerings.
- Sleep on your back
Sleeping on your back is the best position to keep youthful skin. It prevents wrinkles due to lack of wrinkle-inducing friction and shields your skin from folding into your pillow.
- Use a moisturizer
Dry skin will shrivel your skin cells and you want to keep them plumped. Drying them can lead to premature fine lines and wrinkles. When you moisturize, it traps water in your skin.
- Avoid smoking and alcohol
Smoking removes collagen from your skin and alcohol dehydrates your skin as well. Both cause premature wrinkling.
- Use a retinoid
Retinoids are a family of compounds derived from vitamin A. Retinoids are generally stronger and you get them with a prescription. Retinol is a lighter type of retinoid that can be purchased over the counter.
- Explore your options
There are many therapeutic options available to deal with wrinkles. These procedures can help smooth wrinkles or make them less visible. Options include medications, skin-resurfacing techniques, fillers, and surgery.
Sculpt Spa Las Vegas has a variety of strategies to support your anti-wrinkling plan. As mentioned, both the vitamin injection program and the infrared sauna spa offer huge benefits to preventing wrinkles.
The facial filler program that utilizes the Restylane family of products reduces wrinkles as it adds filler to needed areas of your face.
Definitely check out the anti-wrinkle treatments at Sculpt Spa. With it, anti-wrinkle neuromodulators block nerve impulses that stimulate muscle contractions, which can soften lines that have set in. The process also prevents lines from forming. Injections are strategically placed in specific muscles of the face and neck. These create smoother, tighter looking skin.
Common areas include frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines around the mouth, and “bunny lines” on the nose. From start to finish, treatments take about 10-20 minutes.
