We all want to press pause on the signs of aging. This means we are constantly searching for new ways to turn back the clock, reduce the appearance of wrinkles or halt the aging process in its tracks. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. Despite the number of ‘miracle creams’ on the market it can be hard to eliminate the signs of aging and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Most people start witnessing fine lines and wrinkles at around age 25. However, as we age these get progressively worse, with the face and neck being heavily affected.
Surgery may be out of your budget, or it could be a little too drastic for your liking. So, if you’re asking yourself the question, ‘How to reduce face and neck wrinkles without surgery?’, let’s look at some of the ways to eliminate the appearance of face and neck wrinkles – without the need to go ‘under the knife’.
Sunscreen and skincare
The skin on your face and neck is notoriously thin. This makes your face and neck more prone to wrinkles. If you’re searching for a way to reduce wrinkles as painlessly as possible, you must start caring for your skin from a young age. This involves investing in quality sunscreen with a high SPF to prevent your skin from sustaining damage from harmful UV rays.
Protect the dermis
The dermis is the layer of skin on the face and neck that contains collagen. As the dermis is very thin, this makes it much more prone to wrinkles than any other part of the body.
By not ensuring complete protection from the sun during your lifetime, can lead to wrinkles and premature aging. One way to eliminate and reduce wrinkles is to protect the skin from sun exposure from an early age, and ensure the skin is sufficiently hydrated with an adequate skincare routine.
Contrary to popular belief, dry skin itself doesn’t cause wrinkles. It does, however, make face and neck wrinkles appear deeper. By keeping your skin hydrated with the correct skincare routine you can eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are often brought on by dry skin.
Get plenty of beauty sleep
It is not called beauty sleep for nothing! A good night’s sleep is absolutely essential when it comes to caring for your skin. Without proper rest, your skin is unable to fully rejuvenate itself and will, therefore, be far more prone to developing wrinkles.
Additionally, as the skin on the face and neck is much thinner than that of the rest of the body, it is significantly more prone to developing wrinkles. To reduce wrinkles and the sign of ageing it is important to remain well-rested.
Plump up the volume with collagen production
Many of us start to exfoliate in our teens to get rid of the signs of acne and oily skin brought on by hormonal changes. Exfoliating the skin is a great habit to get into. By exfoliating, you’re priming your fibroblasts. These are the skin cells that make collagen. By priming your fibroblasts through exfoliation, you will give your skin that extra push to produce more collagen.
Cut out the junk
Processed sugar is bad for you and eating too much of it could be making you look older. By reducing the amount of processed sugar you consume, you may be able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As sugar glycates the collagen in the skin, which causes the collagen to stiffen, creating fine lines and wrinkles.
If you can avoid sweet stuff and processed sugar, this can do wonders for the skin! We recommend that you should also look to stock up on colorful fruits and veggies. Vitamin C found in fresh fruit and vegetables works to naturally maintain your youthful glow and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
By not eating plenty of fruit and vegetables you will not have a high enough intake of antioxidants and vitamin C to build collagen which works to keep your skin plump and wrinkle-free.
Knock the bad habits on the head
Smoking, drinking through a straw and chewing gum are all ways to cause fine lines around the mouth and to the lower part of the face. By putting a stop to these bad habits, you can eliminate the development of fine lines and reduce the overall appearance of wrinkles. We also recommend wearing sunglasses, even in low levels of sunlight to prevent yourself from squinting. By protecting your eyes you are eliminating the need to squint and therefore the development of facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet.
Consider soft surgery
Whilst all of the previously mentioned options are a great way to stave off the development of wrinkles, sometimes it may be a little too late. If you’re already plagued by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and you have tried every non-surgical approach to reduce the appearance of fine lines wrinkles, perhaps it is time to consider a soft-surgical treatment.
Our innovative fibroblasting treatment is a fantastic way to treat face and neck wrinkles. Each treatment is delivered by an expert PlasmaPen technician who has completed extensive training and is able to advise you on the best treatment options for you.
The PlasmaPen fibroblasting treatment consists of three main steps that work to reduce wrinkles and smooth skin, leaving you looking younger, fresher, and rejuvenated.
The first step is the application of the precision plasma arc that causes superficial microtrauma to the epidermal layer of the skin. During step 2, this micro-trauma stimulates the healing process which creates new, rejuvenated, tight, and smooth tissue over the next 12 weeks. Finally, step 3 is the phase in which collagen and elastin are produced. This works to plump the skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Looking after your new, rejuvenated skin following a PlasmaPen fibroblasting treatment is super simple. Why not download our aftercare article to find out more.
