A Good Night’s Rest

Do you sleep on your front with one side of your face mashed into the pillow? You may be getting your beauty sleep, but doing so may still be making you look older!

Consider the pressure you place on your face when you sleep in this position. Think about how your skin is pressed with your cheek pushed up, all night. Can you see the creases that appear, particularly around your eye and on the one side of your nose? Coupled with the other effects of aging, namely the deterioration of collagen and elasticity, now you’ll understand why this habit can contribute to permanent wrinkles.

Most people sleep in the same position every night because that’s how they feel most comfortable. But when you spend so many hours with your face pressed into a pillow, it can accelerate the rate at which wrinkles and folds develop in the same way a dynamic wrinkle develops. This can result in more apparent wrinkles on one side of your face. Botox® can help smooth away wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions, but what can you do about wrinkles caused by sleeping on your front?

Well, it may be worth it to adjust your sleeping position so you’re on your back. In addition, fillers can do wonders in smoothing away these wrinkles and folds. With instant results, you’ll be able to appear less aged.
