How does our skin age?

Our face is made up of the following structures:

  • Skin
  • Bone
  • Muscle
  • Fat pads

By breaking the face down into three distinct areas, you can begin to get a profile of the ageing process.

A technique referred to in the industry as face mapping.

THE AGEING FACE

UPPER FACE AGING
Skin: This area loosens and dehydrates, resulting in the formation of frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet
Fat pads: Loss of volume in fat pads, create hollowing around the eyes and temples, which can cause eyebrows to become lower.
Bone: Bone loss causes hollowing around the eyes and temples.
Muscles: Repetitive movement creates lines at rest in the frown area, forehead and crow’s feet.

TREATMENT OPTIONS IN THE UPPER FACE

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Eyebrows
  • Temple hollowing
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Crow’s feet

MID FACE AGEING
Skin: Mid face volume loss, creates lines under the eyes and nose to mouth lines, which become deeper over time.
Fat Pads: Loss of volume in the fat pads of the mid face area, accentuates tear troughs and nose to mouth lines.
Bone: Bone loss in the cheek area, accentuates mid face flattening.
Muscle: Repetitive movement, this creates lines at rest in the mid face

TREATMENT OPTIONS IN THE MID FACE

  • Tear troughs
  • Cheek enhancement
  • Nose to mouth lines
  • Nasal bridge improvement
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Acne scar improvement

LOWER FACE AGEING
Skin: Loosens and dehydrates, creating lines around the mouth and chin.
Fat Pads: Volume loss in the fat pads, combined with gravity creates jowls and lower facial lines.
Bone: Bone loss along the jawline accentuates jowls.
Muscles: Repetitive movement creates lines around the mouth, chin and lower face.
Lips: Lip volume decreases with age.
Bone: Bone loss causes lips to appear inverted.
Muscle: Repetitive movement creates lines around the mouth, chin and lower face.

TREATMENT OPTIONS IN THE LOWER FACE

  • Lip volume
  • Lip border
  • Lip lines
  • Lower neck lines
  • Chin enhancement
  • Jawline enhancement
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Acne scar improvement
  • Neck
  • Decollete
  • Hands

Essentially we can put these changes down to two things in the body, extrinsic and Intrinsic ageing.
