“YOU GOT SOMETHING DONE BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT”
Nowadays people pay more attention to the appearance, no matter what gender or age. Wrinkles can even appear on young people who take good care of their skin, rather than just the age this is due to other factors, such as stress, lifestyle, diet, sun exposure, skin type and even genetic factors that cause skin damages as time goes by, resulting in the emergence of wrinkles, loss of the skin tone, flaccidity and sagging.
With more age, less collagen and elastin is produced, which leads to a weakening of the cell matrix, translating into flaccidity, with the consequent loss of harmony within the facial oval. Generally speaking, we can say that as we age, faces lose their triangular appearance and get more of a squared shape.
How does ageing affect our face?
Our skin, over the years, gets thinner and progressively loses its fat barrier, meaning less protection against dryness. The first ageing signs appear between ages 20 and 30, showing as fine marks at the outer end of the eyes and around the lips, between the eyebrows or on the forehead.
With time going by, the facial fat deposits are lost. Something that should be taken into account is the fact that these fat deposits aren’t randomly found, they are in fact bound to ligaments that get thinner and lose strength over time, but as these keep anchoring the fat deposits, bags and furrows form, like in the case of the nasolabial furrows and the marionette lines.
