Age-related facial changes

The naturally-occurring age-related facial changes can be grouped into 3 categories – Deflation, Deterioration and Descent.

Deflation happens as a result of the bone structure diminishing and shifting at varying degrees. Meanwhile, the fat pockets in the face (cheeks for example) also shrink.

Deterioration of the skin becomes apparent when we age. This is due to the effects of the sun and results in the skin becoming thinner and losing strength, hydration and elasticity. Brown spots can appear as can the appearance of small veins and large pores. The skin loses its smoothness and youthful glow due to the inefficient shedding of dead cells.  This can result in an uneven texture.

Descent of the fat around the cheeks and lower face gravitates downward. Since the skin is thinner and less elastic, folds can appear-particularly directed downwards from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines) and between the cheeks and the upper lip area.

The facial “triangle of youth” where there once was a narrower lower face has now been transformed by age into a “squarer” visage.
