The visual signs of aging start early in the face and neck in the forms of wrinkles, skin laxity, loss of volume and hyperpigmentation (spots).
Wrinkles are one of the most common age-related occurrences. With time, the support structures in the skin weaken, collagen and elastin diminish, leading to loss of elasticity and wrinkle formation.
Another contributing factor to wrinkles is the repetitive movement of certain facial muscles resulting in frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. When combined with the loss of skin elasticity, these wrinkles become even more prominent.
The loss of the skin’s natural elastin and collagen, along with gravity and repeated muscle contractions, will eventually result in laxer skin, and a “sagging” appearance. This is mainly seen as jowls, loose skin on the neck, and heavier, sagging eyelids.
Loss of Facial Volume and Contour is due to depletion of fatty tissues and partial migration of fat deposits downward, due to gravity. Commonly, this becomes visible in the cheeks, which appear hollower and less contoured. “Jowls” is another result of the face aging process, due to the gradual migration of fatty tissues and the loss of skin elasticity around the jaw.
Another very common sign of an aging face and neck is the development of brown spots on the skin.
