Are you a woman who’s unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles around your mouth? You have some right to feeling cheated because women are more likely to develop wrinkles around the mouth than men. The good news is, though, that we can reduce or eliminate those wrinkles to help you look younger again.
Men and women have very different anatomy around the mouth, and many of these differences affect your tendency to develop wrinkles. For example, the anatomy of muscle attachments around the mouth causes wrinkling. The muscle attachments in women are closer to the skin, so they are more likely to contribute to wrinkling.
But some of the biggest contributions are the number of glands that produce sustaining oils for the skin. Although women have just as many hair follicles around the mouth as men (!–remember, facial waxing is a great way to get rid of an unwanted moustache), men have more sebaceous glands per follicle. Men also have more sweat glands around the mouth. The result is that men’s faces produce more of the oils that help keep skin soft, flexible, and youthful in appearance.
But you don’t have to accept biology as destiny. You can combat the tendency for facial wrinkles by taking good care of your skin and targeting the causes of wrinkles.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic can be used to relax tensed muscles around the mouth that contribute to “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines”–wrinkles around the mouth.
Facials make a great treatment to help supplement your body’s natural oil production. Facials can provide nutrients your skin needs to remain youthful and healthy. You will see reduced wrinkles not only around the mouth, but over your entire face.
And, just for the record, because women tend to take better care of their skin, they have fewer wrinkles overall in all facial regions, no matter what handicaps anatomy might throw your way.
