Do You Have “Killer Wrinkles?” (Here’s How to Tell)
We’ve heard it a thousand times — wrinkles are just a normal part of aging.
So when you see a new forehead line in the mirror… or a new crease around your mouth… you should just ignore them, right?
Well, maybe not.
As it turns out, deep wrinkles could be a sign of something far more serious.
A new study has revealed a deadly threat linked to certain types of wrinkles.
Find out what your wrinkles are trying to tell you – before it’s too late.
New research from the Toulouse University Hospital in France has revealed a sinister link between forehead wrinkles and heart disease.
In fact, those with deep wrinkles could be roughly 10 times more likely to die from heart issues than those with minimal wrinkles or fine lines.
For the study, researchers monitored 3,200 healthy adults between the ages of 32 and 62 for 20 years.
Participants were examined regularly and assigned “scores” for their level of wrinkles – measured by the number of deep lines across the brow.
And the results were clear – the more deep wrinkles you had, the more likely you were to die from heart disease.
Study author Yolande Esquirol explains: “Forehead wrinkles may be a marker of atherosclerosis.”
Atherosclerosis a disease where plaque builds up in your arteries and hardens them.
Blood vessels in the forehead are tiny and more sensitive to arterial plaque growth. Those forehead wrinkles can actually be a sign of plaque building up.
The good news is that forehead wrinkles often show up before other heart disease symptoms – they’re like a canary in the coal mine.
So you can get ahead of your heart issues while there’s still time.
If you have heavy wrinkling in your forehead, have your doc do some lab work to test your heart health.
The sooner you spot problems, the better.
