The Skin Effects of Smoking: Quit Smoking, Live Longer & Look Younger

Screen Shot 2014-05-05 at 1.55.05 PMDid you know that May 31st is National “No Tobacco” Day? It’s true! On May 31st, individuals are urged to quit, as well as learn the facts about what smoking is doing to their body. In addition, the World Health Organization encourages countries to tax cigarettes more heavily, which some studies have shown encourages the likelihood of quitting. Here at MCH Laser & Wellness Center, we support you in your quitting goals!

 But did you know that it’s not just your health that smoking takes a toll on? It’s also your skin. Health Magazine recently reported, “Experts agree that smoking accelerates aging, so that smokers look 1.4 years older than nonsmokers, on average.”

We see many Odessa patients who are interested in reducing the lip lines (also known as smoker’s lines) around the mouth with Juvederm® and Restylane®. But how can smoking rob you of your natural beauty in other ways?

  • Premature aging and wrinkles
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Psoriasis
  • Yellow nails
  • Warts
  • Excess fat around the abdomen
  • …and much more!
