Physiological Ageing

As we age gravity, exposure to the sun, use of medicines and drugs and daily life stress all affect the way we look. Genetics also play a key role in how we age.

Changes occur with time in the shape of the face and appearance, due to age-related alterations in facial skin strength and elasticity together with fat, bone and cartilage loss.

The skin loses its structural proteins (collagen, elastin) it becomes looser and begins to sag, which contributes to a tired and aged look.

Facial aging is a multifactor process that affects different layers contributing to the formation of:

  • Fine wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, because of the repeated action of muscles in these dynamic areas;
  • Deep creases between the nose and mouth
  • Jowls with less defined facial contours
  • Widen cheeks
  • Hollow temples and tear troughs, caused by fat loss
  • Skin laxity

While nothing can stop this progression, aesthetic procedures can help by preventing and improving the signs of ageing.

After consideration of the area to be treated, your skin condition and expectations, different procedures may be proposed by your physician.
