Sleep apnea and your appearance

Beauty sleep is not a myth. Scientists have recently proven that people with sleep apnea can appear more alert, youthful and attractive after undergoing treatment for two months.1

Benefits of getting your beauty sleep

Chronic sleep loss can lead to lacklustre skin, fine lines and puffiness. In severe cases, sleep apnea can even age and damage your skin.2

When you don’t get enough sleep, your body releases cortisol, a stress hormone. In excess amounts, cortisol can break down skin collagen, the protein that keeps your skin elastic, smooth and firm. A lack of sleep can also negatively affect skin collagen production at night.2

That’s why getting a good night’s rest can make a visible difference in appearance. Consistent treatment for sleep apnea can reduce facial puffiness, redness and forehead wrinkles.

If you’re tired of looking tired and want to look your best, talk to a doctor about treating the cause of your snoring. Our sleep apnea therapy can help you rediscover your refreshed, youthful self.
