As you get older, you may start to notice fine lines and wrinkles forming on your face. There are a few things you can do to help control how quickly your face ages. Living a healthy lifestyle and using sunscreen daily can be highly beneficial. The way you sleep can also affect how fast you experience the effects of premature aging. Here is how your sleep position may be the cause for your wrinkles and what you can do about it.
Stomach and Side Sleeping Positions Can Create Wrinkles
When you sleep on your stomach or side, part of your face can deeply press into the pillow. When you wake up, you may notice skin creases. These creases can dissipate quickly when you are younger because of the skin’s elasticity.
As you get older, skin elasticity is unable to bounce back as quickly. Wrinkles can gradually form from the skin compression during the night. Sleeping on your back can help you slow down the formation of fine lines and wrinkles to help maintain a more youthful appearance.
How to Correct Sleep Position Wrinkles
There are certain cosmetic treatments available to help correct sleep position wrinkles. Dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm® can restore facial volume to fill in lines. Botox® injections can smooth skin by relaxing facial muscles. Laser skin resurfacing helps reduce fine lines and can boost collagen production for skin elasticity. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help you determine which treatment option is best for you.
