One of the common concerns people have as they grow older is the gradual changes to their face’s shape and structure, which occur as volume is lost. Genetics, hormones, and lifestyle factors like sun exposure and smoking also play a part in the rate at which this volume becomes lost, though everyone is different.
As the rate collagen and elastin are produced slows down year after year, facial tissues are affected, and our skin becomes looser, weaker and drier. Furthermore, the age-related bone resorption in the face compounds the visible signs of ageing, with natural fat pads beginning to displace. This can make us look tired and sunken.
Overall, this can give a heavy and aged appearance to the skin that appears less plump and firm than in its younger years.”
By carefully sculpting the face using dermal fillers to replace or enhance volume that may have been lost, loose and sagging skin can be restored to appear firmer and smoother, and this can dramatically improve the signs of ageing.
