How to Prevent Sleep Wrinkles

The Best Patented Wrinkle Prevention Pillow Design for Back Sleepers and Side Sleepers

Did you know that you can get wrinkles just from sleeping?

YES. And sleeping in the wrong position can increase your chances of developing sleep wrinkles, which can become permanent as we age. If you want to know how to prevent sleep wrinkles, we have two words for you: enVY Pillow.

The enVy Pillow was designed by two Registered Nurses with an interest in anti-aging medicine and spinal health. We crafted this patented pillow to avoid wrinkles and encourage more effective beauty sleep.

The design allows us to sleep on our side or back in perfect spinal alignment without putting any unnecessary pressure on our delicate faces - stopping the dreaded 'pillow face'.  OFF-Loading the weight that causes this facial compression will prevent, reduce, and even eliminate those pesky sleep wrinkles that occur from sleeping with your face planted into a traditional pillow.

The creators, Kim and Kathy, have a combined experience of 50+ years actively working in the Anti-Aging /Aesthetic industry, including many years of assessing and treating thousands of patients with Neuro-Modulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and Derma Fillers to correct wrinkles caused by natural aging (caused by expression) as well as the way we sleep (caused by compression).  Creating a pillow to avoid the compression wrinkles caused by the way we sleep came from the realization that many wrinkles people seek help to treat can be easily AVOIDED!

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.

As nurses, Kim and Kathy have had several published articles in peer review journals including a recent “Accurately Assessing Lines on the Aging Face” in the Plastic Surgical Nursing Journal. In addition, Health Canada recognizes the enVy pillow as a Class 1 Medical Device because it provides spine, neck, and TMJ support.

The good news for back sleepers is that it is considered one of the best sleeping positions for spinal health as it supports the head, neck, and spine in the most neutral position.  AND according to most dermatologists, back sleeping is best for skin health.  Additionally, back sleepers do not develop sleep wrinkles because their skin does not lie crumpled against the pillow (they also don’t get those chest wrinkles).

Unfortunately, almost 75% of us prefer side sleeping.  Training ourselves to learn to sleep on our back is almost impossible. This motivated us to create the one pillow that allows side sleeping WITHOUT the negative face smushing effects!

FURTHERMORE: We have had many report that our pillow has helped side sleepers become back sleepers! PLUS less tossing and turning due to the weightless effects of the specialized unforgettable memory foam pillow or organic latex pillow.

Preventing Sleep Wrinkles:

The enVy® Anti-Aging/ Anti-Wrinkle Pillow is the ultimate solution to avoid premature aging! It’s the best pillow to prevent sleep wrinkles and imbalances by keeping you off your delicate facial tissue while you are side sleeping or back sleeping. Additionally, the enVy pillow will slowly and effortlessly encourage back sleeping. enVy® also allows you to apply your nighttime skin care products without worrying about them ending up on your pillowcase!!

Treating Wrinkles:

It has been well documented by cosmetic doctors that sleep wrinkles can be treated with facial filler such as Juvederm and Restylane. HOWEVER, this is a temporary solution. If we continue to press our faces into our pillows while we sleep, the wrinkles will return. The enVy Anti-Aging/ Anti-Wrinkle Pillow prevents unwanted face-to-pillow contact. This is how to prevent sleep wrinkles and lines from returning.

After Plastic Surgery:

enVy® is the perfect post-procedure tool after Botox and facial filler as well as an essential post-plastic surgery aid. Sleeping with an enVy Anti-Aging / Anti Wrinkle Pillow gives us peace of mind knowing that our sleeping position will not harm our healing skin and tissue. The enVy® Anti-Aging/ Anti-Wrinkle pillow allows us to receive the much-needed restorative sleep on our backs OR on our side with our faces slightly tilted away from the pillow.

Acne and Rosacea:

Lastly, enVy® is a perfect complement for your acne and rosacea treatment regime. enVy® pillow gives you the comfort of knowing that your facial skin is not being suffocated into a standard pillow and that your nighttime skin care treatment is staying where it belongs…… on your face.

``If sleeping with your face in a pillow is a nightly routine, then you can develop permanent sleep lines. And you don't have to plunge headfirst to get these lines; even years spent sleeping on your side can cause wrinkles.``
