Why Using JuveRest® Makes Sense
Although some conventional wrinkle treatments can help, they have limited value unless you change your sleep patterns.
Botox® can't help sleep wrinkles because they are not caused by muscle movement. Fillers such as Juvederm® and Restylane® can help fill in sleep wrinkles, but they will likely come back or develop in adjacent areas if you don't address the real problem. The real problem is facial compression against the pillow surface.
The JuveRest pillow is an important tool in your anti-aging arsenal. Topical creams, sun block, Botox®, fillers, even surgery are all useful anti-aging treatments, but they are not a complete solution for treating all types of wrinkles. JuveRest is a common sense add-on to address a significant cause of wrinkles and skin stretching. JuveRest will also protect the beauty investments you've already made.

Sleeping on your back to prevent wrinkles
Doctors recommend back sleeping to prevent sleep wrinkles. Until now, sleeping on your back, however difficult, was the only effective way to deal with sleep wrinkles.
Sleeping on your back to prevent wrinkles The American Academy of Dermatology promotes the back sleeping position, stating that people who sleep on their backs do not develop sleep wrinkles since their skin does not lie crumpled against the pillow.
The less contact your face has with a pillow, the smaller the opportunity for shear, compression and stress forces to create and reinforce wrinkles.
The problem with this sleep wrinkle treatment is many people can’t fall asleep comfortably on their backs, have conditions that discourage back sleep, or will simply roll over on their sides once asleep.
JuveRest® The Sleep Wrinkle Pillow helps protect your face in the back and side sleeping positions while providing comfortable anatomical support needed for a good night’s sleep, every night.
Botox® and other neurotoxins weaken the muscle movements which cause facial expressions and are therefore effective in treating facial expression wrinkles such as frown lines. However, muscle movement does not cause sleep wrinkles. Wrinkles from sleeping are caused by distortion of the face during sleep by contact with a pillow. Botox® cannot improve sleep wrinkles because they are not made by expressions or muscle movement.
Soft Tissue Fillers
Injections of fillers such as Juvederm® and Restylane® can be used to fill sleep wrinkles, but they are likely to recur at adjacent sites if the underlying sleep patterns are not addressed. Fillers are not permanent wrinkle solutions and must be repeated and maintained.
Lasers, dermabrasion and chemical peels can improve the appearance of wrinkles. Again, unless sleep patterns change, sleep wrinkles will recur.
Wrinkle creams can improve the appearance of fine expression and sleep wrinkles, but their effectiveness is diminished without change of sleep position patterns.
Other Sleep Remedies
Sleep wrinkles are created by compression of your face against the pillow surface. Special sheet fabrics and pillow props can’t work if they don’t provide the support necessary to help you stay off your face all night while you sleep.
