Your Face and Ageing
Many people would like their skin to look as young as possible. With advances in both technology and techniques, there is a range of medical, surgical and non surgical anti-ageing treatments available that will help patients achieve a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Over time, the collagen and elastin that provides our skins with structure and volume decreases. As the outer layers of skin lose fat, ageing skin appears thinner and more translucent. Other signs of ageing include the appearance of age spots, broken blood vessels and areas of dryness. Noticeable signs of ageing are caused by factors such as decreased tissue elasticity, bone tissue changes, loss of facial fullness and gravity.
As changes occur in the different layers of the face, wrinkles can deepen and the skin may continue to lose the youthful volume and elasticity around your cheeks and mid face. In your lower face, you may feel that your skin starts to sag and loosen a little or you may notice that your jawline is less defined or that you see lines developing around your mouth and chin.
Our Surgeons strive for a “natural look” when recommended treatments to revitalise the appearance of the skin and face.
