How Do I Prevent Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are something that come with age and can’t be avoided. As we age, so does our skin, causing the dermal layer to thin, produce less collagen, and begin to lose elasticity. When your skin is exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, the process of our skin wrinkling and sagging progresses even more quickly.
In hotter and dryer places such as here in Arizona, we have the tendency commonly see patients who are concerned with the condition of their skin due to sun damage. In addition to a number of skin care treatments and procedures, there are a number of things that you can do on your own to help prevent or slow the progression of wrinkles.
Although aging is inevitable, some imperfections can be postponed by changing to healthier lifestyle habits. The following tips can help you maintain healthy skin and prevent wrinkles:
- Avoid alcohol
- Avoid the sun between the peak hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
- Get a full night’s sleep
- Drink plenty of water
- Use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30
Once wrinkles have appeared, there are many effective skin treatment options to help patients attain healthier, younger looking skin.
If you have unwanted wrinkles or fine lines, the office of Dr. Paul Angelchik offers patients a multitude of minimally invasive and non-invasive treatment options that can help you achieve your desired results.
