Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. However, when premature wrinkles develop many people become concerned. You can combat premature wrinkles with proper skin care and cosmetic treatments. Our Garza Aesthetic products and procedures will help you reduce and even remove wrinkles and other signs of aging.

What Are The Causes of Premature Wrinkles?

Medically speaking, the first cause of wrinkles is age. However, there is a difference between chronological age and biological age. Chronological age is simply the number of years you’ve been alive, biological age refers to how rapidly your body ages. Usually, the rate of biological aging is determined by genetics and how well you take care of your body.

Your skin’s biological age depends on a few more factors,  which include:

  • Natural elasticity
  • Ultraviolet (UV) light from sun exposure
  • Collagen production
  • Hydration
  • Smoking History
  • Stress

These are only a few of the reasons that wrinkles develop early. Noticing and taking care of these factors will help you combat premature wrinkles and prevent more from forming.

Which Diseases Make Premature Wrinkles Appear Prematurely?

While there is a rare disease that causes wrinkly skin syndrome, diseases generally do not directly cause wrinkles. However, certain diseases can cause premature wrinkles, especially diseases that disrupt how your body responds to stress. Especially, because stress is one of the main factors that advance biological age, any disease that adds to your stress levels can easily lead to early face wrinkles.

One specific disease that does advance aging is diabetes. In fact, studies involving diabetes patients found that they had more signs of premature skin aging. This study also found that patients who took better care of their conditions had fewer signs of aging.

How Do You Make Forehead Wrinkles Less Noticeable?

For deep forehead wrinkles, we offer a series of injectable treatments with Botox and dermal fillers. The natural properties of Botox serve to relax your facial expressions and make wrinkles less noticeable. Especially for premature wrinkles.

Dermal fillers like Juvéderm fill out empty spaces underneath layers of the epidermis. If you’re worried about any discomfort from cosmetic injections, one of our injectables in Belle Meade is Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC which has light numbing properties.

Alternatively, establishing a good skincare routine with restorative skincare products can also reduce deep wrinkles.

Treating Wrinkles from Sun-Damaged Skin

The first thing you can do to reduce signs of aging from sun damage is to apply sunscreen regularly. The more thoroughly you can protect your skin from the sun, the more time your body will have to repair the damage.

Chemical peels remove years of sun damage and dead skin. On top of this, a chemical peel will purify your pores by removing the build-up of natural oils and dirt. As a result, your face will look younger and healthier.

Do tanning beds add to skin damage?

Unfortunately, yes. Even though a perfect tan is something we all want, any kind of UV exposure adds another level of damage to your skin. Intense and prolonged exposure to UV light from any source also significantly increases the risk of skin cancer.

Wrinkling from Dry Skin

The importance of hydration cannot be overstated. Skin cells need water just as much as the rest of your body does. Staying hydrated also improves digestion and body temperature. Drinking water also helps remove toxins from your body that can lead to both skin damage and other health issues.

Without moisture, outer layers of the skin begin to collapse, causing tiny wrinkles to form and deepen over time. Using moisturizers will nourish your skin from the outside and help your skin stay hydrated.

As you age, your skin can also lose a natural acid called hyaluronic acid. Scientifically speaking, this acid is a chain of sugars that help your skin retain moisture. Our injectables use hyaluronic acid to improve the volume of your skin and smooth out wrinkles.

Skin Care Treatments

If you suffer from dry skin, you might consider a skin hydration treatment. Our Nashville aesthetics professionals offer a treatment called Hydrafacial that soothes and nourishes your skin. It is a non-surgical facial treatment that combines deep cleansing with powerful hydration and protection.

First, the outer layers of your skin are gently scraped to remove dead skin. Next, dirt, sweat residue, and other impurities are removed with light suction. Finally, we apply a luxurious formula of products to hydrate and protect your skin for long after the procedure.

Hydrafacial is a popular treatment for people with busy schedules because it only takes about 30 minutes. If you have a little extra time, we can add a Perk treatment to gently exfoliate your face and lips for even more improved results.
