Aging is a part of life, but the way in which we age doesn’t have to be set in stone. One of the most common signs of aging is the formation of wrinkles. Wrinkles are caused by changes in the skin such as increased dryness, loss of elasticity and thinning. This causes creases and lines to form. With aging also comes a decrease in collagen production, which also causes a person to appear older than he or she may actually be.

What other factors can cause wrinkles to form?
- Lack of sunscreen: The sun can be extremely damaging, especially when the skin is left unprotected against it. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends people should wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day.
- No moisturizing: Taking care of your face should be a daily routine, one that is completed once in the morning and once before bed. By not cleaning and moisturizing the face daily, wrinkles will begin to form more quickly.
- Poor nutrition: Indulging in an excess of high-sugar foods can cause wrinkles to form. How? Sugar molecules are known to bind to tissues, creating harmful new molecules in the bloodstream which can damage collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the two most important factors for skin rejuvenation.
What can you do?
Even with these tips in mind, wrinkles can begin to form. Don’t let aging affect your happiness or quality of life. There are many cosmetic procedures available to combat the apparent signs of aging, both invasive and noninvasive. A great noninvasive way to make a change is by using dermal fillers. Dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvederm are just a few that can target problem areas such as lines around the mouth or eyes.
If you’re interested in a more permanent change, a facelift can also make a difference. Age on your terms with a cosmetic surgery choice that works best for your personal needs.
