The human body is incredibly responsive to environments, our habits and most critically, time and aging. Getting older and experiencing changes in our bodies is something everyone goes through at some point because our bodies don’t stay the same. We’ll notice changes in everything from weakened bones, our metabolism and how we look. The surface level signs of ageing are something we’ll also start to see because time, the elements and just the unavoidable wear and tear of our bodies will take its toll. The good news is, we have cutting edge cosmetic and surgical treatments at our fingertips to help you slow and combat ageing.
Why does skin get thinner with age, and how do you reverse skin aging?
Loss of Facial Muscle Tone & Fullness
As you age, your body’s natural supplies of oil and fat will start to drop and when this happens you will see changes in your face. Additionally, the face will start to lose its muscle tone, and the result is less definition, a loss of plumpness and smoothness. This is what leads to wrinkles, lines and a thinner looking face, with features appearing less full. Areas that get affected by this on your face are your forehead, cheeks and your lips.
The good news is, there are non-surgical treatments that can help address the loss of plumpness and the wrinkles. Here at Cranford House Plastic Surgery, we offer both dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments to help restore the skin’s plumpness.
Dermal fillers help to control the signs of skin ageing by restoring fullness and volume to your face. A natural injectable is applied to different parts of the face like the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline.
Our anti-wrinkle treatment helps reverse the signs of skin aging by blocking the nerve signals that cause overactive muscles to contract. The injections allow the overlying skin to relax reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
As we all age, our skin will start to lose its elasticity, and this leads to the sagging that we can notice all over our bodies, from our abdomens to our arms and our faces. The loss of skin elasticity in the face can lead to the development of a sagging jowl, which is the area from the cheek down to the neck. It can give you the appearance of a double chin.
The sagging of your skin can be addressed with surgery, for which their options including a face and neck lift to remove the excess skin and tighten the face or an eyelid reduction if the sagging is concentrated to the eye area.
We have the tools and resources to help you combat aging and enhance your features. If you’re interested in any of these treatments, get in touch with our team and we can discuss a consultation.
