Chances Are You Did This Last Night in Bed⤴
Can the Way We Sleep Cause Wrinkles?
YES. And sleeping in the wrong position (side or stomach sleeping) will increase your chances of developing these sleep wrinkles, which can become permanent as we age and create 'Pillow Face'.
Skin experts tell us to sleep on our backs to prevent this facial compression.
BUT 75% of us Prefer Side Sleeping!
We crafted this patented pillow to avoid and prevent wrinkles and encourage more effective beauty sleep either on your side or back.
Training ourselves to learn to sleep on our back is almost impossible. As 2 Registered Nurses in the anti-aging field we were motivated to create the one pillow that allows side sleeping WITHOUT the unwanted face smushing effects!
There are 2 Types of Wrinkles
EXPRESSION WRINKLES and SLEEP WRINKLES
How are they different?
Sleep Wrinkles cannot be treated with neuromodulators like Botox™ and so they are NON-Botoxable! WHY? Because Sleep wrinkles are caused by pressing our faces against our pillow every night. They are generally “vertical” or “diagonal” in nature and cannot be reproduced with expression.
Expression Wrinkles are caused by our natural expression and muscle movement and so are easily treated by neuromodulators - and so they are Botoxable! They are more “horizontal” in nature and can be treated with muscle relaxing treatments such as Botox™
How to Spot the Difference between Expression Wrinkles and Sleep Wrinkles
The American Academy of Dermatology notes that sleeping on our side with our faces pressed into our pillow causes sleep lines or sleep wrinkles. As we age and repeat this nightly habit during our beauty sleep, these sleep wrinkles become permanent and are often mistaken for naturally aging skin.
The trained eye can quickly identify what side you sleep on by the tell tale vertical and diagonal creases. Sleep lines cannot be reproduced with facial expression . Sleep wrinkles often disappear once you wake up and start your day. HOWEVER over time and as we age the creases caused by our sleep will become deeper and more and more permanent.
Anthony Hopkins demonstrates the Sleep Wrinkles and Expression Wrinkles
Observe Anthony Hopkins Sleep Wrinkle caused by his habitual left side sleeping . Once we photo shop the sleep line out you will observe the expression lines that are NOT caused by the way we sleep on our faces.
``If I were to use a standard pillow I would get these sleep wrinkles... and I see these in my patients ALL THE TIME!``

SLEEP ON YOUR BACK -- they say.
Yes, we all have heard the advice... SLEEP ON YOUR BACK to avoid sleep wrinkles! Easier said than done.
Many of us have tried to change the way we sleep to prevent the face planting that causes sleep wrinkles BUT it is crazy hard to break our sleep habits that likely were formed when we were infants!

How Can We Prevent Sleep Wrinkles ?
While some skin experts say the only way to get rid of permanent sleep lines is to SLEEP ON YOUR BACK and minimize facial contact with your pillow, many experts including nurse Injectors, Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons recommend the enVy Pillow to their patients to prevent sleep lines and collagen breakdown.
The patented enVy Pillow works by preventing this unwanted compression and tissue shifting caused by our nightly facial pressure against our pillows. For back and side sleepers, its unique shape minimized face-to-pillow pressure while ergonomically supporting your neck while side sleeping or back sleeping.
"A doctor once said that he could tell what side of my face I sleep on. Sleeping on your face ages you... true story, look it up."
