Remember when your mom would tell you to “turn that smile upside down”? Well, turns out mother really does know best! She probably knew that over time, that frown could result in fine lines and wrinkles in the skin known as expression lines. While your mother may not know how to get rid of those frown lines once they start appearing, stick with us here at Introstem – we’ll show you how!
What’s the Deal with Frown Lines?
Expression lines such as frown lines, smile lines, and forehead lines are depressions in the skin that with time can slowly but surely turn these lines into deep-set wrinkles.
Let me guess, you’ve now made some irrational note to yourself to limit how much you move your face? Good luck!
Thankfully, the skincare industry has made amazing strides in using incredibly effective anti-aging ingredients to fight and prevent frown lines and wrinkles all over. Here at Introstem, we make sure that we’re always ahead of the game.
Take a look at these featured ingredients we use to beat signs of anti-aging!
Grape Stem Cell Extract
Perhaps you’re already aware of the benefits of grapeseed oil for both your hair and your skin. Introstem takes it a step further with our Stem Cell Non-Surgical Syringe. This advanced formula was specially created to target and reduce the appearance of frown lines and eye wrinkles.
Wake up to refreshed and relaxed skin as Grape Stem Cell Extract works to heal and regenerate the skin and reveal a more youthful appearance.
In addition to Stem Cell Extract, the Introstem syringe formula includes Sodium Hyaluronate to aid in collagen production. This helps in reducing the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles in the skin by giving plumpness to the skin.
Grape seed has long been known for its ability to neutralize free radicals, as well. Free radicals are unstable and super reactive molecules that come from everyday exposure such as pollution, diet, stress, and more.
We can probably agree that it’s hard enough keeping up with the ins and outs of life while making sure your skin stays free from any potential harms!
The Introstem syringe utilizes a unique combination of Grape Seed Stem Cell Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, and peptides to deliver a non-invasive way to keep your skin looking fresh and young all while at home.
Superfood to the rescue! In addition to being one of the best parts of sushi, seaweed is also amazingly beneficial for our skin and body.
So yeah…two orders of tuna rolls…extra wasabi, please.
Introstem uses a specific seaweed variety known as Laminaria Japonica, usually found in Japan. This strain of seaweed has over 70 trace minerals that are incredibly beneficial to our skin.
In addition to hydrating the skin and providing moisture, seaweed in general aids in the renewal of skin as well as providing a layer of protection. Traditionally in skincare, seaweed is used in creams and serums for its super hydrating properties. However, seaweed also has the power to act as a detoxifier for the body and skin and when paired with the super absorbent clay, kaolin, our Hydrolift Transforming Mask leaves the skin feeling clean and balanced with a fresh and rested complexion.
So what’s the bottom line? Keeping the skin in a good balance of moisturized and hydrated in itself can help combat signs of anti-aging greatly! Seaweed extract does this and then some, making it a great ingredient to incorporate in your anti-aging routine.
Another star ingredient that we feature in our products is Vitamin A. Vitamin A is hands down one of the best anti-aging ingredients you could ever use. It can be used on all skin types and is found in a lot of foods such as fish, dairy products, and dark leafy greens.
The reason why Vitamin A is so great for anti-aging is that it has the ability to increase skin cell turnover while also aiding in the production of collagen. You know what this means, right?!
Skin cell turnover means new, healthy cells, which means glowy, youthful skin. Not only that, the production of collagen can physically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles giving the skin a smoother and more firm-looking texture.
We can already hear you yelling “All hail Vitamin A”!
We make it a point to formulate the Introstem syringe with Vitamin A to leave you confident in its ability to tackle frown lines and wrinkles from all angles.
But Wait…There’s More
You may have seen some of these ingredients in some of the most popular and talked about products but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many different ways to get those frown lines in check while also improving your skin all over. Let’s take a look at some of the most common ways that people know to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Reducing The Appearance Of Frown Lines
So there are various ways to prevent and combat frown lines. They range from simple home practices to medical procedures performed in a doctor’s office! Let’s take a look at the most common methods:
- Facial Massage
Your routine probably already includes a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer maybe even a mask, too.
Making sure to exfoliate 1 to 3 times a week depending on your skin type and perhaps including a concentrated product such as the Introstem syringe for frown lines or our Hyrdrolift Face and Neck Cream for firmness can greatly help give your skincare an anti-aging line of defense.
Don’t forget, this includes sunscreen!
Now more than ever it is important to use some form of sun protection on any exposed skin, especially the face.
You’d be pretty surprised by how much your daily lifestyle can impact your health and overall appearance. That’s right! An unhealthy lifestyle can have an adverse on your body and your skin will be the first to show its signs.
Be sure to eat right, develop and maintain an active lifestyle, drink a good amount of water to stay hydrated, and do yourself and favor and get some sleep. Doing these actions will keep your complexion glowing and your skin firm which in itself will stop frown lines and any other wrinkles in their tracks.
It’s also super important to moderate your stress levels. Stress can cause a super negative impact on our health. Stressed skin is evident and can leave us even more stressed than before.
Be good to yourself and your skin will thank you! Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will leave your skin glowing and youthful for years to come.
Physical massaging of the skin is something that has long been proven to help achieve a more firm and plump texture. There are so many different types of facial massages that will not only prevent wrinkles; they’ll tone the muscles in your face giving you a more chiseled look over time.
Tools such as jade rollers and gua shas all work to stimulate the skin with great results. The lymphatic system is drained, giving the skin a more slender appearance and wrinkles and frown lines are prevented through constant physical manipulation.
For some individuals, they find the best results come from using a facial massage tool after applying a cream or serum. The Introstem syringe could be paired nicely with a facial massage to really allow the ingredients to penetrate the skin.
One of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to fighting off expression lines and wrinkles. Retinoids come from Vitamin A and share some of the same skin-loving properties.
The biggest one? The production of collagen! By now, collagen production has probably been mentioned over three times within this article, and for good reason.
Collagen is the reason for skin elasticity. The elasticity of your skin is incredibly important when it comes to preventing wrinkles.
Think about it! Skin that is loose and has no elasticity will naturally become filled with wrinkles and lines. When the skin is full of elasticity and firm, the skin will naturally be smooth resulting in fewer lines.
The reason why you see a lot of older people with wrinkles is that as we age, collagen production reduces and our skin loses that youthful snapback. This is especially apparent in our Introstem syringe where frown lines and eye wrinkles are filled and plumped.
Using retinoids consistently over time can help your skin increase its collagen production resulting in younger-looking skin.
Last but not least, we have injectables. These include fillers ranging from Hyaluronic Acid, a natural substance that is one of the most widely used fillers to Botox which is used to relax wrinkles.
Now I’m sure that hearing the words “injectables” and “fillers” doesn’t necessarily leave you with a positive image in your head. However, a lot of fillers have been proven to be quite beneficial for the skin in fighting wrinkles.
The reason why a lot of individuals find themselves leaning towards injectables is because of their ability to be extremely targeted in their placement. I mean…it is a syringe.
Want that same targeting without the actual insertion? Our Introstem syringe is, of course, non-surgical but still has the ability to target without being invasive or potentially uncomfortable.
So, Now What?
Ok! We know some great ingredients to incorporate in our anti-aging routine to fight frown lines and all expression lines on the face. So now what do we do? Let’s create a basic but effective anti-aging skincare routine that will put pressure on those pesky fine lines and wrinkles!
Cleanse and Tone
Find out what your skin type is and find a cleanser that works for you! Remember, everyone’s skin is different. The way you cleanse your skin and the type of cleanser you use will all boil down to what your skin likes. At the end of it all, consistency is key! Don’t forget those ingredients we mentioned earlier. See if you can grab a cleanser that boasts of anti-aging benefits too, such as the Stem Cell Mousse Cleanser from Introstem. Top things off with the Stem Cell Facial Toner.
Dry and dehydrated skin is a breeding ground for fine lines and wrinkles! Be sure to keep your skin moisturized to encourage a supple and fresh complexion. Moisturizing your skin is not for specific skin types. Every skin type needs to have a moisturizing step in its skincare routine. Without it, your skin will look and feel dry, making the possibility of wrinkles greater. If you don’t yet have a go-to moisturizer, try the Stem Cell Day Moisturizer from Introstem.
Probably one of the most important parts of a skincare routine when it comes to frown lines and wrinkles. Having a concentrated serum or cream is an excellent way to target skin issues and fight them. The Introstem syringe is a great example of a treatment product that could be incorporated into your skin routine. Alternatively, try the Introstem Lumi-Cell Overnight Mask.
Still Not Convinced?
Beating frown lines and wrinkles, in general, doesn’t have to be some sort of mystery. Use the knowledge of anti-aging skincare to protect your skin and slow down the visible aging process. Naturally, as we get older not everything will look, feel or even move the way that it used to!
So we give up? Do we leave the fate of our precious complexion to just anything?
The answer is no!
Youthful skin is just a consistent skincare routine filled with superior anti-aging ingredients away. Products such as the Introstem syringe and ingredients like Seaweed extract and Vitamin A are all great ways to fight any signs of aging and are found in a myriad of skincare products, whether they are geared towards fighting anti-aging or not!
There are some things that are completely out of our control in life. Things like our environment, discouraging current events around the world, and the continuation of time. What you do have control over, however, is yourself!
Can you completely stop the aging process? Not that we know of. What you can do, though, is research and find quality products with great ingredients that work for you and are effective.
Let your dream of a youthful complexion be more than just a dream. Let it be a reality with premier products like the Introstem syringe and top-quality ingredients like Grape Stem Cell Extract to reveal your best self!
