As you begin to get older you are no doubt aware of the changes that are taking place in the skin on your face. One of those changes is the formation of lines and mouth wrinkles in the perioral area which surrounds your mouth. If you are a woman then the lines and wrinkles will be deeper owing to female biology. Women have fewer blood vessels under the skin layers in this area and their muscle tissues are connected in a distinctive manner than in males. The skin near your mouth gets thinner as time passes and the production of collagen by your body is not adequate to keep up the firmness of the skin layers. Mouth wrinkles also develop because of all of the repetitive actions that your mouth performs on a routine basis like chewing and sucking.
There are several things which you can do so as to protect your skin from developing wrinkles in the area that surrounds your mouth. If you are likely to be spending time outdoors then you need to apply a thick coat of high spf factor sunscreen so that the sun's damaging uv rays does not cause any harm to your delicate skin. You should apply a good quality moisturizer that has effective components like collagen couple of times each day. If in case you are a cigarette smoker you need to stop because this damages and dries the skin badly.
Once the mouth wrinkles have developed on your face there are numerous remedies that you can employ right at your home to help eliminate them. A huge range of anti wrinkle skin creams and lotions can be found and some of them work quite well, just make sure that you get one that has effective ingredients, like collagen, in it.
Many anti wrinkle creams now offer a free trial and a refund guarantee if you're not satisfied with the result. Lip plumpers momentarily make your mouth fuller to hide wrinkles and face exercises can help to eliminate wrinkles on a longer term basis.
You can also use one of the many wrinkle treatment equipments that are available. They work by stimulating the skin and muscles in the area where the problem is to help reduce lines and wrinkles. Micro current machines stimulate the muscle tissues surrounding the mouth by the use of a low level micro current in order to firm and strengthen them. Micro dermabrasion machines revitalize the skin by removing a thin layer of upper skin to leave it looking smooth and free of wrinkles.
Dermal fillers and Botox have long been a popular choice for people wishing to remove mouth wrinkles and also those around the eye area. Injectable muscle relaxants like Botox smooth away any wrinkles that time and the sun have caused by relaxing the muscle tissues beneath the skin. Dermal fillers, usually containing collagen as their main ingredient, are used to fill out the loose skin layers to make wrinkles vanish.
Mouth wrinkles can be eliminated effectively by laser treatment and the cosmetic results from this stay the longest of all wrinkle treatment methods. There are many different kinds of lasers which are used to treat wrinkles. Powerful ablative lasers are applied to eliminate several layers of skin at the same time. These days they are not used very often for skin care surgery. A less powerful type of non-ablative laser is used which does not remove too much of the skin superficial layers while still effectively healing the layers lower down. A medical doctor or dermatologist must be consulted for information on what form of therapy would work best for effective wrinkle removal.
