What Causes Wrinkles?

If you’re a Denver-area resident looking into skin treatments to address your wrinkles, you might not care how those wrinkles came to be. You just want to get rid of them and revitalize your appearance in a way you desire.

This is understandable, but understanding the cause of wrinkles is crucial if you are to minimize their appearance. Wrinkles can never be entirely eliminated, but with the right preventive steps and the right skin treatments from Facial Aesthetics, you can greatly reduce their number and severity.

Causes of wrinkles include:

  • Muscle contractions brought on by various facial movements such as smiling, frowning or laughing
  • Smoking
  • Age
  • Frequent, prolonged exposure to the sun and its ultraviolet rays
  • Diet

Some of these causes can be addressed; you can quit smoking, cut down your exposure to the sun (in part by wearing heavier clothes that cover more of your skin) and change your diet. These steps will help tremendously.

But age and the muscle contractions caused by facial expressions can’t be changed. Their effects, however, can be addressed through a range of skin treatments, including BOTOX(R) Cosmetic. BOTOX works by preventing your muscles from receiving the nerve signals they need to receive in order to contract.
