There’s a Science Behind What Makes Skin Look Youthful
It turns out, looking young isn’t subjective—there’s a real science behind youthful-looking skin and it starts with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that gives skin its fullness. When hyaluronic acid diminishes (a natural and inevitable part of aging), that’s what causes skin to look thinner and more wrinkled.
Spotting your first frown line between your eyebrows might be the universal trigger for suddenly “feeling old,” but time isn’t the only factor that causes lines on your face. In fact, the biggest contributor to the formation of lines and wrinkles is repeated movements and muscle contraction (think: smiling, frowning, squinting)—in other words, having an expressive face, which is why lines and wrinkles may develop even in young adults.
Topical Treatments Can Only Do So Much
While a good skin care regimen should include a number of over-the-counter products, creams and lotions can only go so far. Yes, adding in moisture and plumping the skin can temporarily fade the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but they can't deliver any long-lasting results.
But there's no need to look old--you can stand up to the line with Dysport, a prescription injectable treatment for the temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.
