The Natural Aging Process
What are the visible signs of aging?
Sagging & loose cheek
Smooth and plump cheeks are the result of abundant amounts of collagen tissues in the skin. However, as you age, the collagen loss leads to less prominent cheeks and the presence of excess skin, particularly in the lower areas of the face.
Loss of deep facial fat
The deep facial muscle between your bone and fat, also known as Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), loses elasticity as you age. Simultaneously, fat pads and facial muscles lose their volume. This results in sagging skin as your facial muscles are weak.
Loss in bone volume
Like the rest of your body, facial bones also undergo osteoporosis and lose their density as you age. This results in significant changes to your facial bone structure, such as the narrowing of your temples and shortening of your jawline. Your eye sockets also widen which gives your eyes a sunken and ‘hollow’ appearance.
What else contributes to sagging skin?
Besides age, other external factors such as environmental pollutants, UV exposure, poor lifestyle choices (smoking, drinking, or sleep deprivation) and hormonal imbalance can also increase the rate of skin sagging.
