How to Treat and Prevent Wrinkles

We all have wrinkles. It’s a part of life! The lines on your face tell your story and add character to your features. As natural as they are, wrinkles might be something you’d like to reverse or improve. There are ways to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and keep your face smooth and healthy. Here are five ways to reduce fine lines and wrinkles!


Stimulate Collagen Production

Collagen decreases as you age, but plays a vital role in skin elasticity, strength, and hydration. Some ways to stimulate collagen production are to take collagen supplements, eat foods rich in vitamin and amino acids, and get microneedling skin resurfacing treatments. Microneedling is the process of creating tiny, controlled injuries that promote increased collagen formation and revive skin health and texture.

Wear Sunscreen

Staying out in the sun without proper protection for your skin leads to premature aging and wrinkles. That’s why it’s vital to apply sunscreen. The sun emits ultraviolet (UV) rays that can affect your skin even when it’s overcast. A study done in 2013 found that those who applied daily sunscreen showed no detectable increase in skin aging after 4.5 years. Apply SPF 30-50 every day to protect your skin.

Get a Facial

Photofacial treatments are very effective in reversing signs of aging. They use pulses of intense pulsed light (IPL) to improve your skin at the cellular level. The energy from our deluxe Venus Versa™ IPL system stimulates collagen and elastin production, which may help improve reduce fine lines and shrink enlarged pores.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Water helps to hydrate your skin and maintain elasticity and reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. It was found in a study done in 2015 that higher water intake positively impacts skin hydration and biomechanical behavior. The amount of water you should drink a day depends on your height, weight, and activity level, but the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommend that each day women get a total of about 2.7 liters (L), or 11 cups, of fluid and men get about 3.7 L (16 cups).

Try Botox

Neurotoxins are a very popular treatment for reducing wrinkles, rejuvenating the aging face, and slowing down the aging process. This is the #1 treatment at Glow Balance Med Spa! You can learn all about botox from our previous blog post, All About Botox.
