Facial Skin Aging

Our body begins to age the moment we are born, and as we grow older normal physiological changes cause loss of volume and progressive degeneration of our skin. The combination of involution and thinning (aging) or the thickening (sun damage) of the skin often leads to skin problems, such as surface roughness and uneven contours of the face, sometimes called the "hills and valleys" of aging. Extrinsic aging, caused by environmental damage, disease, or weight alteration, combined with intrinsic aging, caused by chronologic or ethnic factors, can result in a variety of skin imperfections. These imperfections (whether they are wrinkles, age or "liver" spots, acne scars, or other skin rhytids) may be uncomfortably noticeable. Today, a variety of different methods including injections, laser procedures, plastic surgery and physician-strength skin care products can be used to produce smooth, clear skin and younger-looking facial contours. Old Age = Lost Volume As we grow older we continue to lose volume in the face, and our skins loosens as it stretches and the wrinkles multiply.

Volume Loss

The aging process continues as the layer of fat under the dermis erodes and the muscles underneath the fat weaken and lose elasticity and tone These changes manifest themselves most notably as loss of volume (thinning of the skin, drooping of mouth corners and jowling)

As We Age Repeated Muscle Movement Causes Wrinkles

Our emotions including anger, grief and happiness are stamped on our faces by the repetitive movements of our facial muscles, which in time causes facial wrinkles.
