What Happens As We Age?

The aging process changes the main structures of the face, including skin, fat, muscles and bone structure. Skin becomes thinner, losing its plumpness and firmness.

Aged 35

Skin becomes slack with a loss of the elastic tissue (elastin) in the skin and over time this causes the skin to hang loosely, lines and wrinkles appear.

Aged 45

Loss of fat below the skin in the cheeks, temples, chin, nose, and eye area can also result in loosening of the skin and a sunken eye appearance.

Aged 55

Treatment Options

How You Can Address The Specific Problems Of Aging

① Poor Skin Quality 

Cosmetics, Mesotherapy, Peels, Lasers, etc. can help to improve the surface of the skin and improve the visible appearance of fine lines, sun damage, pigmented areas and blemishes.

② Loss of Volume 

Traditional fillers and toxins can be injected into the face to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and modify facial contours.

③ Skin Sagging 

Surgical Lifting or the much less aggressive ‘soft surgical’ technique of Thread Lifting, can lift and reposition tissue that has become flaccid and drooping.
