Wrinkles, dreaded wrinkles. We know they’re coming but we hate it when they arrive. If you’re concerned about wrinkles, you’ve probably already heard the typical solutions. 

Wrinkles around mouth

First, you can apply anti-aging cream on your face and around your eyes every night. Also, using facial cleanser and moisturizer instead of soap could help with sensitive areas. Additionally, you should wear sunscreen whenever you go outside–even on cloudy days. 

If you already do all this and want to know more, your local dentist in Clayton, Missouri, has some new options for you to consider! Whether you already have a few wrinkles and want to reduce them or if you’re nervous about getting wrinkles, we have some surprising tips for you to try out. 

Change Your Sleeping Habits

One way to avoid wrinkles is by changing the way you sleep. If you sleep on your stomach, you continuously smash your face against your pillow at night. Sleep lines form naturally when your face stays in one position all night. Eventually, over long periods of time, those sleep lines develop into wrinkle lines. 

Sleep apnea is another common problem that can cause wrinkles down the line. Due to the constant stress during your hours of rest, wrinkle lines begin to form on your face. Sleep apnea is not fun now and it’s definitely not fun later when you see the effects of your stress. If you’ve been feeling restless, having headaches in the morning, or experiencing other signs of sleep apnea, please give us a call. Nobody should suffer from sleep apnea and we offer treatments that can help. 

Research Nonsurgical Facelifts

Facelifts are pretty common, so we expect you to know what to expect when you go under the knife. However, we’re proposing something different. Have you ever heard of a nonsurgical facelift?

If you haven’t, it’s time to visit Smile On Dental Studio in Clayton to learn more. Nonsurgical facelifts improve your look by going deeper than superficial, traditional facelifts. 

Nonsurgical facelifts, on the other hand, focus on your teeth and jaws. Your teeth naturally wear down over time and with wear and tear, your jaw follows suit. Uneven, worn down teeth have a bigger effect on your look than you think. Over time, your face begins to sag and wrinkle. However, realigning your jaw, replacing teeth, or fixing your smile can greatly improve your appearance.
