We’re not going to talk about the environmental effects of plastic water bottles, global warming, and stuff about recycling. While we do care about those things, we would like to point out here at our Utah Valley dermatology practice that premature appearance of wrinkles around the mouth may result from your constant use of water bottles.
So what’s in the water bottle that’s causing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth? It’s not exactly what’s in the water but it’s the act of drinking from the bottle that’s actually making you look older than you really are. Repetitive motions in your face such as sucking on a cigarette or squinting at the sun can increase your likelihood of developing wrinkles around the mouth. The same goes for drinking from a water bottle.
If possible, we recommend buying a filter and drinking from the tap as much as possible (it could even save you money, too!) Or you can just pour bottled water to a cup or glass and drink from it.
If Wrinkles Already Exist
Once wrinkles have already appeared in your mouth, our warning may be too late. However, you’ll be relieved to know that we offer a wide variety of cosmetic solutions to help you improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth such as Botox and dermal fillers.
You may be overwhelmed at first with too many options to choose when it comes to reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. But fret not! A consultation with Dr. Myers will help you figure out which treatment is suitable for your cosmetic goals and preferences.
