Why Smoking Ages Your Skin

Your dermatologist has likely told you that smoking can make you look older, but how exactly does it affect your skin? This video explains why smokers frequently have more wrinkles and more saggy skin than nonsmokers.

Smoking affects your skin in a number of different ways. It causes your blood vessels to constrict, which slows the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your skin cells. Additionally, smoking can reduce the amount of collagen that is produced by your skin, which can lead to sagging skin.

Quitting smoking can slow down the skin aging process. At Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, our dermatologists can offer treatments to reverse the damage that has already occurred. Make an appointment with a cosmetic dermatology specialist today by calling (866) 400-3376.
