The Aging Process
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat and the fullness often associated with youthfulness. The outer skin layer (epidermis) thins. The skin becomes overall thinner and changes in the connective tissue reducing the skin’s strength and elasticity. We lose collagen in the deeper layers of skin. Over time, volume is lost and redistributed in areas around the mouth, cheeks, and lips. Wrinkles or creases may form in the facial skin due to a combination of volume loss and repetitive actions of the facial muscles. Injectables and dermal fillers can reduce early signs of aging, and can be a valuable enhancement when applied in conjunction with facial rejuvenation surgery.
Over time, the action of certain facial muscles may contribute to the appearance of wrinkles, heaviness of the brow, and the appearance of fatigue, worry or anger. When those muscles are weakened with neuromodulators, the unfavorable effects of those muscles are diminished.
