How To Get Rid of Skin Wrinkles

What Causes Skin Wrinkles?

There are many causes of wrinkles. Some of these include:

  • Genetic factors which are unique to every individual

  • Exposure to heavy levels of UV light. The skin is naturally exposed to high levels of radiation from the sun. Tanning beds are another source of radiation. Some lighting within the home or workplace may also emit low levels of radiation which can worsen wrinkles over time.

  • Living in areas with heavy air pollution like the city.

  • Smoking or vaporizing, especially when done on a regular basis

  • The natural aging process. As people grow older, wrinkles often develop.

  • Smiling, frowning, squinting, or other facial expressions repeated over time will cause strain and tension which can produce and worsen skin wrinkles.

  • A diet rich in caffeine, processed foods and sugar, and meat.

Can Skin Wrinkles Go Away?

Skin wrinkles often grow more pronounced with age. Over time, the skin cells die, and exposure to the sun and other sources of UV light increase. However, skin wrinkles can be prevented by reducing over-exposure to UV lights, smiling or frowning less, or not smoking.

Reducing Wrinkles

While smoking is dangerous and quitting is probably a good idea, repeated facial expressions and avoiding the sun is not really feasible for most people. Furthermore, If an individual has genetic factors which predispose them to wrinkles, live in a city, or keep growing older, wrinkles always remain a possible threat.

Fortunately, skin wrinkles can go away. While some require medical intervention, many skin wrinkle treatments which are easily available. Some skin wrinkle treatments include:

  • Botox injections which require visiting a doctor, often a plastic surgeon, who will inject a Botulinum toxin beneath this skin. These injections will cause the skin to smooth out so that wrinkles are removed.

  • Laser resurfacing which also requires a doctor to use lasers to smooth the skin out. Using lasers to resurface skin is also used for scar removal.

  • Applying anti-wrinkle creams to areas which are beginning to wrinkle. Low potency creams are available in the cosmetic or pharmacy section of most retailers. Higher potency creams can be prescribed by a doctor.

  • Changes in diet to include roe soy, fruits, vegetables, salmon, and fresh foods help reduce the risk of wrinkles. Also decreasing the consumption of meat, coffee, other sources of caffeine, and processed foods and sugar can be helpful.
