Treating Wrinkles and Fine Lines in New York
We at Rejuve NYC know all about wrinkles and how frustrating they are. We also understand your frustration over how useless over-the-counter creams can be and the desire for more effective, easy and long-term solutions. Though wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging, We offer highly effective treatments to help reduce deep and fine lines, minimize the signs of aging and give you smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.
What Causes Wrinkles?
As we age, the dermis, or inner skin layer that provides structural support, begins to thin out and weaken. Our amount of collagen, a key structural protein, decreases and reduces the skin’s elastic ability. Overtime, our skin loses its capacity to hold moisture and stay hydrated. These natural aging processes lead to sagging and wrinkles.
Smiling, frowning, squinting and other facial expressions can also contribute to wrinkles due to frequent muscle contractions overtime. Common facial muscle contractions cause: Laugh lines (lines around the mouth); Crow’s feet (lines extending from the corners of the eyes); frown lines or “The Elevens” ( lines between the eyebrows) and Chest wrinkles.
The sun can directly damage the skin or cause excessive squinting that leads to wrinkles. Sun damage can be a major cause of wrinkles especially if you don’t wear sunglasses, sunscreen or a wide-brimmed hat. Poor lifestyle habits such as smoking or excessive drinking can dehydrate the skin, slow the skin’s natural healing process and decrease collagen production, all of which contribute to wrinkles.
In some New Yorkers wrinkle formation may be genetic. If you have parents who developed premature wrinkling, then there is a possibility that you may also develop wrinkles early in life. Finally, in some people, no cause of wrinkle formation is ever found, and that is simply attributed to bad luck.
Most treatments will fail if you do not change your lifestyle or discontinue you bad habits. Maintain good skin hygiene and wash your face regularly. Avoid applying too many fragrances and facial make-up products on the face. Many of these products contain a number of chemicals that can cause allergies and skin sensitivity.
If you go out in the sun, protect the skin from the rays of the sun. This means wearing long sleeved garments, sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats. Apply a potent sunscreen with an SPF of greater than 30 at least 30 minutes before you go out. If you get the skin wet after going to the pool or perspire excessively, reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours. When buying a sunscreen, select skincare products that have the ability to block both UVA and UVB rays.
A very common cause of dehydrated and sagging skin is dehydration. You can prevent this by using a moisturizer liberally. Even though moisturizers do not cure wrinkles, they can temporarily hide the fine lines and small skin creases. There are many moisturizers on the market and most work well.
If you want to avoid wrinkles or want the medical treatments to work for your wrinkles, then you need to stop smoking. Smoking causes faster breakdown of the collagen and leads to premature sagging and wrinkle formation. By quitting smoking you will begin to notice improvements in your skin within a few months.
There is now new evidence that eating a healthy nutritious diet consisting of fruits and vitamins may help protect the skin. In addition, eating such a diet is also good for the whole body.
