Treating and preventing tissue shift and wrinkles caused by compression

Treating and preventing tissue shift and wrinkles caused by compression Both the literature and the authors' findings support the idea that the ageing process nor genetic disposition are reason enough to cause facial wrinkles. The tissue damage caused by ultraviolet B (UVB) exposure and an action or force, such as repeated facial expression, gravitational shift and tissue shift caused by compression, work together to create wrinkles. This suggests that stringent preventative measures beyond the recommended use of adequate sun protection factor and sun avoidance, where possible, will affect the formation of wrinkles on the face and neck. The purpose of this paper is to educate aesthetic nurses on the significance of these preventative measures. When considering facial tissue protection aesthetic nurses must not only consider UVB irradiation, but also the lesser-known damaging effects of tissue shift due to the compression exhibited in habitual, side and/or stomach sleeping positions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Both the literature and the authors' findings support the idea that the ageing process nor genetic disposition are reason enough to cause facial wrinkles. The tissue damage caused by ultraviolet B (UVB) exposure and an action or force, such as repeated facial expression, gravitational shift and tissue shift caused by compression, work together to create wrinkles. This suggests that stringent preventative measures beyond the recommended use of adequate sun protection factor and sun avoidance, where possible, will affect the formation of wrinkles on the face and neck. The purpose of this paper is to educate aesthetic nurses on the significance of these preventative measures. When considering facial tissue protection aesthetic nurses must not only consider UVB irradiation, but also the lesser-known damaging effects of tissue shift due to the compression exhibited in habitual, side and/or stomach sleeping positions.
