Wrinkles while you sleep

Wrinkles while you sleep

A recent study showed, that the condition in which you sleep may contribute to the wrinkles on your face. When you lay your face on a pillow, you may be placing it in a position that affects your skin, therefore it causes the skin to stretch, shear, and compression forces on your skin. Lateral sleeping (on your side) and the prone (face down in the pillow) are the positions that are considered to cause wrinkles while you sleep. As we get older we move less while we sleep, this results in a longer amount of time in one position, therein a longer duration of time a wrinkle producing force is being applied to an area of skin.

{The location and orientation of sleep wrinkles are often different than wrinkles caused by facial expression, ( Please see the example below, Common sleep wrinkle locations and orientation marked in black]

And unlike wrinkles caused by facial expression most sleep wrinkles are not improved by Botox. However, sleep wrinkles can be improved by fillers (e.g., Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero), laser resurfacing, and face-lifting in some cases.

When Life Hands You Lemons …

When Life Hands You Lemons …

When life hands you lemons, CRMCLaser says to brighten your skin and improve your health.

Today I wanted to remind all of you that lemons are great for your health and a way to brighten your skin naturally!  While you should always consult with your doctor about your diet and any food allergies, this post is to share information you may not know about the power of lemons in your diet and for your skin.

The citric acid and Vitamin C in lemons (especially the peel) help purify blood vessels and remove impurities found in your skin cells that lead to aging, dark spots, and wrinkles.  The lemon antioxidants help detoxify your skin. If you can handle the bite, it is a great health benefit to actually eat the peel.  The citric acid in lemons includes natural lightening components and is often an ingredient found in skin topical at home recipes for brightening skin.

Although lemons are not the ultimate solution for your unwanted dark spots, acne scars, and wrinkles, feel free to contact our CRMCLaser team anytime for alternatives that are right for you. 323-650-9949
