Recognizing the Early Signs of Facial Aging
- Posted on: Mar 15 2015
Obvious signs of facial aging — wrinkles, folds, and creases — typically appear by the time you hit middle age. However, individuals in their 20s and 30s are not exempted from facial aging woes. To help you take preventative steps, we list the subtle, yet still distressing, early signs of facial aging.
The appearance of crow’s feet (those pesky wrinkles on the outermost corners of your eyes) is a result of frequent sun exposure, genetics, and lack of moisture in the area. To combat the creation of crow’s feet, you can use moisturizers that are specially made to hydrate the thin skin around the eye area.
Facial sunspots are fairly common among men and women who spend time outdoors. If sunblock and protective clothing don’t seem to help, you can opt for in-office treatments to eliminate or reduce early signs of pigmentation. These treatments include chemical peels and laser treatments.
Also known as nasolabial folds, smile lines traverse from the corners of your nose down to the sides of your mouth. You can prevent smile lines from appearing prematurely with topical products that contain hyaluronic acid and/or collagen-based ingredients. Once they begin to show themselves, smile lines can be addressed with dermal fillers.
