Natural aging affects the whole face
As we age, different parts of the face lose shape and fullness leading to lines, wrinkles, and less youthful-looking appearance. In many cases, this is because our bodies aren’t producing as much hyaluronic acid (HA) as they used to. HA attracts moisture, and less HA means less moisture which can contribute to sagging and drooping skin.
Where do we often see wrinkles?
Cheeks: Loss of collagen, thinning of underlying fat, and decreasing bone volume can lead to a reduction of volume in the cheeks, giving a sunken appearance.
Nasolabial Folds: (Laugh Lines)- Through volume loss and aging over time, the skin of out cheeks may drape over to become nasolabial folds (laugh lines), creating a tired looking face with wrinkles between the nose and mouth.
Lips: As we age, our lips may lose shape and there can be an increase in small vertical lines aroud the mouth (4-perioral lines and 5-oral commissures), while the corners sag (6-marionette lines).
