Essential rest according to Dr Christophe Desouches Cosmetic surgeon in Marseille
Your wrinkles will reveal the way you sleep ...
Sleeping on your stomach and on your side distorts the face and promotes the appearance of wrinkles over time.
Since the compressive, tensile and shear forces exerted on the face during sleep cause distortion when we sleep on our side and on our stomach, leading over time to the formation of sleep wrinkles.
This is not to be taken lightly since they tend to worsen with age under the combined effect of repetition of the position, thinning of the skin and loss of elasticity.
These wrinkles usually focus on forehead, lips and cheeks. Contrary to expression lines caused by muscle contractions, sleep wrinkles due to mechanical compression of the face during sleep cannot be removed by botulinum toxin.
However, dermal fillers can temporarily improve all types of wrinkles! More information: https://www.desouches-chirurgien-esthetique.com/injection-toxine-botulique.php
