Does sleeping on your side cause wrinkles?
There's a rumour in the beauty world that a dermatologist can tell which side you sleep on, just by looking at the wrinkles forming on your face.
Could this really be true?
This is usually the side that we photograph 'better' on." On the other hand, one side is slightly flatter. This side tends to wrinkle more when we sleep on it because it has less underlying support. "But it's not sleep alone," says Dr Cook.
The best treatment is to repair the underlying volume loss which leads to increased wrinkling using injections with hyaluronic acid fillers," explains Dr Cook. "Then the overlying skin is more supported and less likely to crease."
