Sleep apnoea and appearance
Beauty sleep is not a myth. Scientists have recently proven that people with sleep apnoea 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 apnoea 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 apnoea 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 apnoea therapy can help you rediscover your refreshed, youthful self.
