Can Wrinkles Be Prevented?

Can Wrinkles Be Prevented?

As you age, your skin naturally goes through transformations in weight and texture. Instead of smooth, full, rounded contours, you might start to see the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially on your face and hands.

While you can’t literally stop time from passing, with today’s cosmetic dermatology treatment options, it’s increasingly possible to erase and even prevent many visible signs of aging from your skin. At Apex Dermatology of Westlake Village, California, aesthetics and skin care expert Dr. Karin Harp, Dr. Aria Vazirnia, Kristin Rupert PA-C, Mary Hanna NP, and Lani Keene LE can advise you on the best treatment options to restore your skin to youthful smoothness and vitality.

What causes lines and wrinkles?

Over time, proteins in your skin like collagen and elastin become less plentiful, causing your skin to lose fullness and volume. Other factors can also contribute to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of your skin, including environmental factors like sun exposure and lifestyle choices like smoking.

As your skin texture changes with age, you might notice wrinkling on your neck, chest, forearms, hands, and especially your face. The motions of your facial muscles form indentations that deepen over time. Loss of fat due to aging can also contribute to the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The best way to prevent wrinkles is to protect your skin early on. Using broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+, staying out of the sun, moisturizing regularly, and not smoking can all help keep your skin looking youthful and supple as you age.
