Wrinkle treatment is not usually the first treatment a 20-something would tend to think about; most of us tend to believe this treatment is something you turn to in your late 30s or 40s. But did you know there is now a growing trend of younger people getting “preventative wrinkle treatment” to stop wrinkles in their tracks before they have a chance to grow?
Why Have Preventative Wrinkle Treatment?
Wrinkles develop over time due to weakened skin that folds in the same place repeatedly. Laugh and smile lines, crow’s feet, pursed lips or scrunching the forehead all contribute to small lines which can eventually deepen with age as skin loses elasticity. Wrinkle treatment is therefore used to relax these muscles to stop them from constricting and to prevent further wrinkling as well as giving a smoother appearance due to restricted muscle movement.
What Makes Preventative Wrinkle treatment Different?
Preventative wrinkle treatment works in the same way but instead of treating fine lines and wrinkles, the primary goal is to retrain the facial muscles, prohibiting wrinkles to develop in the first place whilst improving the posture of facial muscles which can cause wrinkles. Without treatment in these areas, muscles pull in directions which cause wrinkles, but by applying the wrinkle treatment, it allows the muscle to pull in different directions allowing muscles to age more evenly. Retraining the muscles in this way also breaks the habit of overexpression, such as frowning, earlier which further reduces lines in these areas.
Of course, if you are worried about wrinkles forming, then this treatment is a no-brainer! Stopping lines forming early, especially if you have a hypermobile face, and retraining your muscle’s movements will help to keep your face furrow-free and may also reduce the need for more invasive treatments such as strong chemical peels or facelifts later in life. Wrinkle treatment is only one weapon in your arsenal when it comes to having line-free skin, so daily moisturising, adequate nutrition rich in vitamins, as well as sun-safe habits must be followed to get the most out of preventative wrinkle treatment.
