Contrary to popular belief, the right time to get non-surgical facial rejuvenation does not depend on age. Here are the age signs to look out for before considering facial rejuvenation.
Our skin tends to become loose as we age due to a decline in collagen production. Collagen is responsible for keeping your skin firm, plump, and young. Once the amount of collagen decreases, our tissues sag.
The cheeks are one of the lifted facial features that provide structure and contour. The gradual and natural loss of fat from the underlying facial fat layer results in hollow cheeks.
To check if your cheeks are still lifted, observe the area between your undereye and cheek. Do you see fine lines? Look at the lower cheek as well. Does it sag to your jawline?
You can also try pinching your cheeks. If the skin seems to bounce back, then you may not need a non-surgical facial-rejuvenation procedure at all.
Deep Folds Around the Nose and Mouth
Deep folds around the nose and mouth are more obvious signs of sagging skin. The weight of the loose skin from the cheeks can pull down the skin at the nose and mouth. This forms what we call the nasolabial folds.
It’s very easy to observe skin aging in this area. All you must do is smile and look for laugh lines. Next, keep a poker face and check the area where your laugh lines used to be. If there are folds, this may be an indicator that you need non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
Loss of Facial Fat
A decrease in collagen production also means a breakdown of proteins that give structure to your face. As we age, we lose fat in some areas. We also gain fat in other areas depending on the genes we inherited.
When we lose facial fat, our skin begins to sag. This creates fine lines and wrinkles in the different parts of our faces.
Drooping Skin at the Jawline
Sagging skin at the jawline, or jowls, is the most common indicator of skin aging. Almost everyone can experience this after a decline in collagen production.
Do not mistake jowls caused by aging from jowls caused by gaining weight. You can also have jowls due to losing weight.
You can observe if your skin at the jawline bounces back when pinched. If it doesn’t, it may be time to schedule a consultation.
The Benefits of Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Nowadays, there are many options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Thanks to technological advancements in dermatology and plastic surgery, some injectables can temporarily reduce the appearance of facial skin aging.
A surgical facelift must only be done for very severe signs of aging. Those who have mild to severe cases can have dermal fillers or neuromodulators. These injectable treatments can also be combined, depending on your appearance goals.
Non-surgical facial-rejuvenation treatments also provide a temporary experience for those who are undecided about undergoing a surgical facelift.
