Understanding How The Face Ages
Has your face changed over time? Most likely you are noticing it if you are reading this. Facial aging goes deeper than wrinkles and folds.
As we age and lose facial volume, the contour of the face changes, causing shadow patterns to develop, while youthful highlights fade. Gaining a better understanding of how your face becomes altered over time may help you and your aesthetic specialist decide on the best treatment options to address your individual concerns.
Many factors impact the way our skin ages, including lifestyle choices and genetics.
• Lifestyle choices, like sun exposure, smoking, alcohol use, diet, and stress, can cause brown spots, rough skin, and wrinkles, as well as the premature onset and progression of aging
• Genetics affect all layers of the skin and contribute to thinning, dryness, and loss of elasticity of the skin during the aging process
What happens to our bones during aging?
There is a significant loss of facial bone with age. Aging of the craniofacial skeleton may be due to changes in the relative dynamics of bone expansion
and bone resorption.
Bone recession leads to thinner bone, removing structural support for the overlying tissues. This loss of support contributes to sagging and droopiness and noticeable changes in the other layers of overlying soft tissue and skin.
FAT-PADS AND AGING
Fat-pads are located below the skin’s surface and help to provide volume, facial contours, and fullness.
As we age, fat-pads get thinner and descend. As a result, our face may not look as round and firm as it did in our youth. Hollows can form beneath the eyes, drooping skin can cause deeper lines around the nose and mouth, loose skin can result in a sagging jawline, and fat can accumulate beneath the chin, resulting in fullness between the neck and chin (“double chin”). The loss and downward movement of fat-pads can also make the face appear deflated and sunken in the cheek area.
TREATMENT OPTIONS TO ADDRESS SIGNS OF AGING
The aging process has an impact beyond the facial wrinkles and lines that form on the skin’s surface. Aging affects multiple layers, including the bone, muscles, fat-pads, and skin. This is important to understand, as it will help you and your aesthetic specialist decide on the treatment option that is right for you.
The goal of facial aesthetic treatment is to help temporarily restore facial volume and correct age-related shadow patterns inherent to the aging face.
