Suppose you search the web for the best anti-aging secrets. You’ll be provided an extended list from dermatologists, estheticians, celebrities, and influencers claiming that their secrets are straight from the fountain of youth. Of course, you’ve heard about them all: sleep a total of eight hours, drink plenty of water, eat a healthy diet, take collagen supplements, exercise, perform a sixteen-step skincare routine every day, and never sleep in your makeup—but is there one secret that stands out from the rest? Is there a secret that everyone should be implementing into their lives? At Art of Lines MD in Vancouver, BC, we think so.
Read on to learn about the best anti-aging secret for men and women to fight against wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and dull skin.
The Leading Cause of Aged Skin
The leading cause of wrinkles, fine lines, and cell regeneration is exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. Ultraviolet radiation, omitted from the sun and other harmful free radicals, speeds the natural aging process and can cause the advancement of premature wrinkles. Exposure to UV light breaks down your skin’s connective tissues, like collagen and elastin fibers, which lie deep in the skin’s dermis. It also causes the cells in the skin to slow their regeneration process, leading to skin thinning.
It’s no secret that there is something relaxing about feeling the sun’s warmth on your skin, absorbing the vitamin D, and giving your skin a gorgeous golden glow. Unfortunately, we don’t think much about the repercussions of this activity in the moment. It’s only later when we are in our 30s or 40s that we start to notice harsh lines around our eyes, on our neck, or across our forehead. Or the stubborn brown spots slowly taking over our once smooth, even-toned skin. Unfortunately, by that time, the damage has been done, and it was too late.
The Best Anti-Aging Secret
One of the best anti-aging secrets is applying broad-spectrum sunscreen before stepping outside your house. This includes rainy days, overcast days, or even days when you’re going to be sitting inside your car. Broad-spectrum sunscreen means that it will protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. You can still bask in all the sun’s warmth, but your sunscreen will act as armor against the ultraviolet light from penetrating the dermis of your skin, preventing premature signs of aging.
Remember that if you’re going to be in the sun for an extended period, reapply your sun protection every few hours and immediately after swimming or sweating.
Treatments to Reverse the Signs of Aging
You can’t go back into your childhood or early twenties to apply sunscreen. So, if you’re already noticing wrinkles, fine lines, or other signs of premature aging, consider a treatment to help get your skin back on track.
At Art of Lines, we offer Botox®, Dysport®, and dermal filler injections to help restore signs of damage on your skin. Our Botox and Dysport injections will smooth fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily blocking nerve signals to relax facial muscles, which not only corrects wrinkles but can also prevent them from becoming more dynamic in the future.
Dermal fillers renew thinning skin and add volume where collagen and elastin have broken down. They are the perfect treatment if you notice your skin is beginning to sag and can be used to restore the delicate eye area.
