Thanks to the hypergrowth of social media over the last decade, combatting the signs of ageing and looking your absolute best has never been so important. Most of us will do anything we can to hold onto a youthful glow. Reducing the signs of ageing has become a daily task where we prune, preen and primp our bodies to look our very best and most importantly appear as young as possible. Wrinkles are one of the most obvious signs of ageing. Reducing face wrinkles can be a quick and easy way to regain a youthful complexion.
So, how do you go about reducing wrinkles once they are there? This article will show you some quick and easy solutions for banishing wrinkles, leaving you feeling fresh-faced and full of confidence!
What causes wrinkles on the face and neck?
Wrinkles on the face and neck are an inevitable part of the ageing process. As we get older, our skin cells begin dividing much more slowly and the dermis - the middle layer of your skin - starts to thin, losing collagen and elastin. On areas like your face and neck, the thinning of skin is much more apparent, because these areas are already thin , to begin with.
Although ageing is inevitable, there are many other factors, many of them environmental, which can cause wrinkles on the face and neck, including:
- Drinking alcohol
- Chronic stress or worry
- Spending too much time in the sun
- Not having your eyes tested regularly leads to excessive squinting
- Lack of sleep
- A poor diet – including eating too much sugar
- Air pollution
All of these extrinsic factors can have a profound effect on the number of wrinkles we have, which is why it is so important to make good life choices in our younger years.
How can you reduce face and neck wrinkles?
They say prevention is better than cure but this phrase is hardly useful if you have already developed significant wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, jawline and neck.
What solutions are there for reducing face wrinkles? Firstly, start by looking at some of those extrinsic factors which cause them. Stop smoking, reduce your alcohol consumption, smother yourself in SPF and stay out of the sun, and make sure you’re getting plenty of sleep - they call it beauty sleep for a reason!
You should also look into improving your diet. Reducing the amount of refined sugar - that’s sugar you find in sweets, fizzy drinks and cakes - that you consume can have a great impact on your wrinkles because too much refined sugar breaks down the collagen in your dermis, leaving your skin saggy and lined. Instead, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and incorporate lots of protein into your meals, including fish which has lots of fatty acids which is known for its nourishing properties.
Topical treatments are also a great way to banish wrinkles. Use a good quality moisturiser day and night and look for products that contain collagen-boosting ingredients such as:
- Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs)
- Vitamin C
However, if these methods don’t quite ‘cut the mustard’, there are, of course, other methods for reducing wrinkles, such as soft-surgery which of course includes our revolutionary PlasmaPen treatments.
The best treatment for reducing face wrinkles
Reducing face wrinkles is easy with PlasmaPen. Our device uses a fibroblasting technique to reactivate the fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of skin so that the production of collagen is increased. This soft-surgery method repairs and reverses the visual effects of ageing, giving structure back to the skin and smoothing out ghastly wrinkles.
PlasmaPen treatments can be combined in one session, or over a course of sessions, to reduce wrinkles on the face. The facial options can be split into three key zones:
- Upper facial – forehead and eyes
- Midfacial – cheeks and nasolabial folds
- Lower facial – smiles and smokers’ lines and the jawline or jowl area
PlasmaPen isn’t just for the face. Our treatments can be used for reducing fine lines and wrinkles on areas such as the neck, décolletage, arms and even hands! - basically, anywhere that needs tightening
