Unfortunately, time does not spare our skin, because with age it becomes less elastic, loses its elasticity. This is facilitated by both external factors and the slowdown of some biological processes. Over time, nasolabial wrinkles appear, raising a completely logical question of how to remove them, because they are considered the first signs of aging.
Nowadays, plastic surgery and salon procedures are helping to eliminate this problem, but there are also more gentle methods of dealing with it that can be applied at home.
Reasons for the appearance of folds
Often they are associated not only with skin aging, but also due to other factors.
What are the causes of nasolabial wrinkles?
- Individual features of the structure of the facial muscles. In some people, anatomically, the muscles are located in such a way that the folds are clearly expressed and this manifests itself at a young age. At the same time, the skin itself can remain young and healthy;
- Lifestyle can also influence the appearance of this problem. Insufficient rest, bad habits, unhealthy diet - all these factors can affect the fact that nasolabial wrinkles appear early enough;
- Ecological situation. If it is bad, it affects not only the general health, but also the skin. Consequently, women who live in industrial areas face this problem more often and earlier than others;
- Excessive fluid intake before bedtime can also affect this process. This causes puffiness with its subsequent elimination, respectively, the skin is constantly stretched, which precedes the formation of folds;
- Do not be surprised at the early appearance of this problem in women who are used to sleeping on their stomachs. Such rest leads not only to the appearance of nasolabial folds, but also to the fact that wrinkles appear on other areas of the face.
It is worth remembering that with the wrong approach to getting rid of wrinkles, they may not only not disappear, but also become deeper.
Cosmetological methods to eliminate the problem
The modern beauty industry now and then presents more and more new means, thanks to which it is possible to fight for the prolongation of the youth of the dermis.
The most popular ones are:
- Serums, masks, creams, lotions. As a rule, these products contain elements useful for the dermis such as collagen, elastin, coenzymes, hyaluronic acid. Most of these funds surprise not only with the expected effect, but also with their cost. It is not at all necessary to spend huge sums on the purchase of such cosmetics - highly effective products can also be prepared at home, which will cost several times less. In addition, the effect of some of these masks, lotions, creams, etc. exceeds the effect of expensive drugs and cosmetics;
- Mesoscooters. They are also often used in modern cosmetology. The device is a roller with thin needles, through which blood flow is stimulated, the production of dermal cells. In addition, thanks to this device, the pores are filled with collagen;
- Lipofilling. For the procedure, the patient's own adipose tissue is taken and injected through punctures into the wrinkles. This procedure is quite effective, but its cost is very high;
- Injections. They are used to combat deep folds. There are practically no side effects from the procedure, apart from a slight swelling, but it is possible to remove wrinkles with an injection only for a maximum of a year, and then they will return.
All these methods have both advantages and disadvantages, but the main ones of the latter are their high cost and aggressive impact. In addition, many of these procedures allow you to prolong youth only for a short time.
Procedures that you can do yourself at home will help to achieve an excellent result.
Not only cosmetic procedures, regardless of whether you perform them in the salon or at home, help to give the skin youth, health and beauty. This is also facilitated by massage with gymnastics.
The simplest gymnastics is carried out at least twice a day and consists in the fact that you need to inflate a "ball" with your cheeks. To remove or prevent nasolabial wrinkles in this way, you must first apply a cream or mask to the skin.
Here are some other exercises you can do to keep the aging process from touching your dermis for a long time:
- We make the “ball” with our cheeks as big as possible, and with our lips we make a “tube” and through it we slowly release air from our “ball”;
- We lower the upper lip to the chin. Returning it to its place, press on the folds with your fingers and slightly stretch the skin to the sides and down;
- We press our lips to our teeth, open our mouth slightly, pronounce the sound "O" for half a minute. Meanwhile, gently tap the nasolabial folds with our fingers;
- In the normal position, with the pads of the index fingers, we make pressing movements along the lines of the nasolabial triangle.
It is advisable to do gymnastics, looking at yourself in the mirror, in order to be able to check the correctness of the exercises.
Massage should also be performed in front of a mirror, but it should be done like this:
- With the help of the middle and index fingers, we massage the area of the bridge of the nose and lips, performing movements from bottom to top and back;
- With the same fingers, we perform smoothing movements in the area of the bridge of the nose, moving from it to the area of the cheekbones;
- We make gentle movements with our fingertips, heading from the bridge of the nose to the temporal region.
Massage and gymnastics alone will not be enough to eliminate wrinkles, therefore, in parallel with these methods, face masks should be used at home, which also help get rid of nasolabial wrinkles.
