When you think of facial ageing, wrinkles and sagging skin come to mind, but research finds that skin isn’t the only thing that grows old. Over time, so do our facial bones, which lose volume and recede. If you think of the facial bones as “scaffolding” for facial tissue and skin, the bone loss can contribute to that drooping, deflated look. So, which treatments can make a real difference?

As we age, our skin thins and loses its elasticity. This leads to fine lines and texture changes and skincare alone won’t help. Whilst it keeps the skin hydrated and plumped, it won’t prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. This is because our fat pads that provide cushioning for our faces start moving down. As well as this, our bone structure changes, and we start losing a lot of the collagen our body naturally produces. Over the age of 35, the number of bone regenerating cells in the face decreases which results in a diminished bone scaffold on which our fat and skin sit. This loss of bony volume may contribute to sagging facial skin, decreased chin projection, and loss of jaw-line definition.

Skincare can't act as the scaffolding our skin needs to maintain its previous structure. In order to do that, you need something that works at a level that would alter the connective tissue. To restore a more youthful look, adding volume back to the face will improve results. The most effective approach toward facial rejuvenation should include restoring volume and contour. Soft tissue fillers and fat can be used successfully to restore volume loss and, when injected more deeply, resulting in the restoration of supportive structures and the skeletal foundation. At the same time, injecting more deeply comes with a higher risk, so be sure to choose your medical practitioner wisely.
