Rhytids

Video Transcript:

So here’s another daily tip from your friendly local dermatologist in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Ready for some more medical jargon? Well here’s one: Rhytids, and it means wrinkles. And don’t ask me why we don’t just say wrinkles, I don’t know, but they’re just wrinkles. And why do you get wrinkles? Well, 90% of wrinkles are caused from sun exposure or ultraviolet light exposure from the sun or tanning beds. 90%!

Now that comes in conjunction with moving an area a lot. So the more you move, it’s like a piece of paper gets folded and folded and folded, and eventually you get a crease there. So, the more you do all these movements the more rhytids you will get. So, please stay out of the sun. Please protect yourself. If you want to decrease the movement in area so you get less wrinkles as you get wiser, you can talk to your local dermatologist and we can help with that.

But please don’t neglect your diet and exercise. The better your diet, the less wrinkles you’re gonna have. And the more you exercise, the more collagen is going to be built in your skin, so your skin can be big and strong, and not wrinkle as easily. 

Because Dermatologists treat more than just skin cancer!
