Premature Wrinkles: What Causes Them & How To Get Rid of Them

Never has anything good been paired with the word “premature.” That may be a tasteless joke, but especially when applied to aging, it is true. Even at an average pace, aging can be challenging to embrace, but premature aging is particularly tough.

Changes occur as we get older. We don’t bounce back from a night of drinking as we used to; working out feels different, and the recovery extends, and the steps in our skincare routine get longer as we combat the loss of collagen and elastin.

What Are the Key Signs of Aging To Look Out For?


Also known as liver spots, but that is a significantly less-cute name. Sunspots are spots on your skin caused by sun exposure, and they tend to appear around the age of 40.

Hair loss

Genetics, hormones, environmental factors, and diet all play into the rate of hair loss. Hair loss occurs when the stem cells that trigger new hair growth in your hair follicles die off. Women often begin losing their hair around age 70 and men around age 50.

Gaunt hands

Gaunt hands occur as the skin thins and loses collagen. The kin on your hands will appear more thin and veiny. Hands can start to look older during the late 30s and early 40s.


Around age 30, collagen production slows down, and the skin loses tautness. Collagen is the essential protein that helps boost skin, giving it bounce and plumpness. Without collagen, the skin develops wrinkles and sags. Wrinkles develop first in the areas with frequently used muscles (the forehead) and most exposed to the sun.

When these signs of aging occur before age 30, they are considered “premature.”

What Causes Premature Aging?

Honestly, there is a laundry list of reasons why premature aging occurs. It’s up to you to know what you can tackle, omit, or change in your life.

  • Alcohol intake
  • Caffeine intake
  • Diet
  • Environmental factors
  • Genes
  • Sleep habits
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Stress
  • Sun exposure

What Can I Do To Pause Premature Aging?


Wear sunscreen! And reapply! Try topical treatments with aloe vera, Vitamin C, or AHAs for preexisting sunspots. And if that doesn’t work, there are several clinical treatments to consider; just talk with a dermatologist.

Hair loss

These days there are multiple shampoos and conditioners designed to target hair loss; pop those into your routine, add a multivitamin to help your body produce keratin, and if all else fails, you can buy Rogaine or Propecia to assist further.

Gaunt hands

Moisturize those things! And, if your work brings your hands into contact with chemicals or harsh ingredients, protect your hands with gloves.


To quote myself from earlier, “Wear sunscreen! And reapply!” Wear hats, cover-ups, and stay hydrated. Those are basics you should be covering on the daily. Your skincare routine should include moisturizing ingredients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, antioxidants, and retinoids. Many people turn to clinical methods like Botox and fillers, but this is where Dermaclara steps in. We are designed to help target wrinkles and sagging skin.

​​Dermaclara silicone face patches are clinically proven to be the most effective way to deliver moisture to your skin. Moisturized skin means buoyant skin that keeps its shape! Our patches tighten fine lines and reduce wrinkles by preventing water loss and boosting collagen and elastin.


They seal in a microclimate that naturally pulls moisture up through all layers of your skin. There are no foreign chemicals or topical ointments; you are using what is already there, boosting it, and increasing collagen and elastin. The result is the safest, most effective way to erase wrinkles.

So, we may not be able to dip you into SPF 50 every day, but we can cover you in silicone patches and give you beautiful skin.
