Whether it’s curled up on our side in a fetal position, face down on a fluffy pillow, or sprawled out on our backs, we all have a favorite sleeping position. Though most of us don’t think about it, our bodies naturally gravitate to the most comfortable position, which is oftentimes on our side. But have you ever thought about how that particular position is affecting your face?
There have been studies to support that sleeping on your face can cause wrinkles and acne, but that very position can also contribute to a significant size decrease. Sleeping on a specific side can leave your face uneven. This unevenness is caused by the loss of fatty tissues and natural collagen, so your “beauty sleep” may be the reason behind your skin issues.
Due to consistent pressure, the youthful volume and natural tightness of your skin deteriorates faster in the side of your face that you sleep on most. Though sleeping on your back can help reduce the risk of this happening, most people change sleep positions 2-4 times at night.
The good news is that The Lifestyle Center offers an array of injectables and dermal fillers to combat the lost elasticity and replace the loss collagen, restoring your face back to its youthful glory. Our options include: BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, Juvéderm®,BellaFill®, Sculptra®, Radiesse®, and fat transfer.
Richard Moore, M.D., the owner of The Lifestyle Center, evaluates your skin and helps determine the best treatment for you to obtain your ideal look. We specialize in achieving the most natural and youthful results for all our patients.
