Wrinkles - Do You See Fine Lines

Jul 4, 2008
Who does not want skin without wrinkles as they get older? I know that I want as smooth of skin as possible. To get smoother skin you need to know what makes it wrinkle in the first place. This article will discuss reasons that this aging problem occurs. Also we will look at some prevention and treatments also.

The top layer of skin ages and decreases in thickness. With this thinning of the top layer (called the epidermal layer) the skins cells in the layer are not as adhesive which helps the skin retain less moisture. These cells do not reproduce as easily when we get older which causes the skin not to heal as easily. Wrinkles result as the epidermal layer ages but this is not the only reason. The dermal layer of the skin also needs to be discussed.

Thinning also occurs in the dermal layer. It's decreased collagen due to being unable to create it as much and the elasticity of the skin wears out. These changes in the skin layers cause lines and other problems. The glands that are sebaceous also decrease in producing sebum and we wind up with less glands that are called sweat glands which leads to dryness. There are many creams on the market that help combat wrinkles. There are correcting creams, tightening creams and even creams for instant face lifts. There are also heavy duty moisturizing creams that help improve the dryness of the skin. Try one of the creams before trying an expensive medical procedure to see if it works.

There are plenty of over the counter solutions for wrinkles today. You can buy a cream to help erase them, or one to make the skin more firm, and there is actually creams that say they are for a facelift. Moisturizers are quite effective these days too with all the maximum strength ones out there. Consider applying one of the creams in place of more drastic solutions as performed by medical professionals.

You can go to a professional and get shots of botulinum toxin A this sometimes helps eliminate wrinkles at least temporarily. I shudder at the thought of needles though so I would probably not choose this for myself. You can get acid peels with glycolic acid if you that appeals to you. This can leave the face smooth after it heals from the peel. Whatever choice you make read material on it to make up your mind. The doctor and or location you choose should be researched on their credentials too.

Be sure to drink your water every day. Six to eight glasses of water. Since the skin getting drier promotes wrinkles you need to nourish your skin with natural moisture of within. I hope that I have given you some good ideas to help keep the your skin healthy. Have a happy healthy and hopefully wrinkle free life.
