Smoking and Wrinkles

Smoking and Wrinkles

Want to avoid the unnecessary gamble of getting facial wrinkles? Smoking is one of the major factors increasing your chance of premature skin aging. While there are many other health reasons not to smoke or to stop a current smoking habit, many of my patients are surprised to learn that smoking has an effect on the luminosity or brightness and youthful appearance of their skin. In our detailed instructions for preparation for their surgery, I ask patients to stop smoking prior to their surgery. Nicotine hinders the healing process and I want my patients to have a safe and healthy recovery following surgery. I find that this temporary stop may often give people the jump start to kick the habit for good. It’s never too late to quit smoking!
