Also known as laugh lines or nasolabial folds, wrinkles on the cheeks are one of the signs of ageing that we dread the most.
Although aesthetic medicine recommends injections of hyaluronic acid to treat those wrinkles, that beauty treatment has limited effects over time and is particularly costly.
Fortunately, there are natural products which you can apply to your skin to prevent and correct cheek wrinkles. Those anti-ageing treatments encourage good hydration and stimulate collagen production.
Spotlight on preferred facial treatments to fill in cheek wrinkles!
Cheek wrinkles: Know their causes to choose the right treatmentNasolabial folds form creases on the skin of your face, from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. The appearance of wrinkles on the cheeks can be due to a variety of factors:
⦁ Skin ageing: the skin gradually loses its elasticity and volume, which accentuates expression lines.
⦁ Genetic heritage and facial morphology: depending on the case, cheek wrinkles can appear before the age of 30.
⦁ Prolonged exposure to the sun without adequate protection: overexposure to the sun accelerates the skin’s natural ageing process.
⦁ Excessive smoking: holding cigarettes in your mouth accentuates the wrinkles around your lips, and the substances you inhale are detrimental to the synthesis of elastin and collagen, which are necessary to the skin’s elasticity and firmness.
What facial treatments are best for filling in cheek wrinkles?The daily use of appropriate facial treatments can head off the development of wrinkles and fine lines at the corners of the lips and affect their intensity. For optimal results, opt for an anti-wrinkle product which contains ingredients known for their lifting effects.
Hyaluronic acid and collagenDid you know that the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen slows with age? Yet those molecules, which are naturally present in your body, provide tone and elasticity to the skin on your face.
To offset the resulting shortage of hyaluronic acid and collagen, it is recommended that you use facial treatments which include those ingredients in order to receive the benefits of a lifting effect on your face.
Glycolic acidGlycolic acid is a fruit acid which is known for its moisturising and wrinkle-fighting properties. A night treatment featuring glycolic acid is ideal for eliminating dead skin and stimulating the renewal of the upper layers of your epidermis. Its action restores some of your face’s elasticity and reduces the wrinkles at the corners of your lips.
PeptidesA peptide is an extremely powerful molecule made up of multiple amino acids. A facial treatment made with peptides serves to boost collagen production.
Antioxidants and vitaminsThese ingredients can be used to combat premature skin ageing. Pink algae from Camargue is a powerful antioxidant and source of vitamins. A treatment with pink algae protects the skin on your face from external aggressors and fights the natural drying process and the premature signs of age.
