Anti-aging skin tips: how to keep facial skin looking young and healthy

By Stephen M. Krant, MD, FACS

Most of us know that getting enough sleep is an important part of staying healthy and looking our best. However, a recent study has shown that


we sleep – including the positions we prefer and even the type of pillowcase we use – can have an impact on our overall appearance. Subsequently, sleep-related

may help prevent the formation and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that betray advancing age.

According to a recent report from the

American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons

, sleeping positions begin to impact the look and texture of the skin in people between the ages of 30 and 50. For those who sleep on their sides or use roughly textured pillowcases, the repeated pressure eventually begins to show up as sleep lines and wrinkles. Industry experts recommend sleeping on one’s back, as opposed to one’s side, to minimize the development of sleep lines; and in addition, proper skin care habits can help keep signs of aging at by.

As a professional plastic surgeon, I encourage all my patients to take good care of their skin, and to use preventative methods including daily sunscreen and sun protection, hydrating moisturizer, gentle cleansers and balanced nutrition to maintain skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. However, for those individuals contending with entrenched signs of aging, facial rejuvenation procedures utilizing laser resurfacing and cosmetic fillers can counteract past damage and help restore a more youthful look to the skin.
