As we progress through the early years of our lives from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood we become smarter and stronger each day. However, once we hit our twenties the ageing process starts to kick in, bringing with it many signs on our face and body that show the world that we are getting old. In this post we will take a brief look at the process of skin aging, and how facial fillers can help you to fight them.
The first signs of ageing tend to appear on our face around about our early 30s. This is the age when our skin starts to lose its ability to produce collagen and elastin, which are the things it needs to help it stay firm and springy. Once the amount of collagen and elastin starts to reduce, then repeated facial movements such as frowning and laughing will begin to leave marks on the face such as frown lines and crow’s feet. Our facial features can also begin to look more angular which tends to make us appear more tired and sad. Our previous lifestyle choices, such as sunbathing, also come back to haunt us at this age as pigmentation can start to show up on our skin.
In our 40s, all of these issues can start to intensify, with the skin becoming drier, and therefore lines and wrinkles appearing more pronounced. Another issue is the loss of subcutaneous fat, which again decreases the amount of elasticity in our faces and can cause our skin to sag and can dramatically change our appearance.
Unfortunately, the ageing process is a natural process and it is virtually impossible to prevent it or stop it. However, there is good news in that we can slow it down and potentially reduce the impact on our face and body.
Firstly, we cannot emphasize how important diet and exercise are. Making sure your lifestyle is as healthy as possible, by eating the right things and incorporating exercise into your day is one of the ‘easiest’ ways to keep your skin looking as young as possible as well as reducing the impact of ageing on your skin.
Of course, there are also several treatments that Cheadle Facial Aesthetics offers, including cosmetic fillers, that can all help to reduce the impact of ageing on your skin. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles, while lip injections can enhance lip volume and shape. We also offer Botox, which is another treatment we can use to smooth forehead wrinkles and other lines on the face.
