Why the Face Ages and What Can Be Done About It

Written by Administrator   

According to Dermatologist Melvin Elson, M.D., of Nashville, Tenn., there are five basic types of aging that occur on the face, and for each of these aging processes modern dermatology has an answer that can turn back father time.

How Dermatologists  Can Restore Your Youthful Look

Dermatologic treatments can improve the skin's texture and return its youthful glow. "Dermatologists evaluate a patient with aging facial skin for many different factors, including how well the face is aging overall; is there obvious damage to the skin's surface; what does this damage look like; and how deep does it go," stated Dr. Elson. "Once we have a picture of what has occurred on the face over time, dermatologists can identify the steps necessary to reverse the damage - whether that be through a single treatment or a combination of several treatments."

Factors that Act Together to Age the Face

Intrinsic Aging

Intrinsic aging is the natural process of aging that begins late in life and is characterized by a loss of substance to the skin and the underlying fat resulting in a gaunt, thin look with hollowed cheeks and eye sockets. The treatment options for this type of aging are aimed at replacement of the lost tissue, such as solid implants, which are surgically placed under the skin, or fat transfer, where fat and tissue from other parts of the patients' body are used to fill in deeper wrinkles and contour the "hills and valleys" associated with aging.

Gravity

No one is immune to the effects of gravity on their body. For the face, this means that as soon as we stand, everything moves downwards - the eyelids fall, the jowls form, the nose tip points downward, the upper lip disappears while the lower lip pouts and even the ears get longer. These facial changes related to gravity become more pronounced as we age.

"No amount of facial exercises or ‘good genes' can offset the pull of gravity," stated Dr. Elson. "Dermatologic treatments for the everyday effects of gravity remain surgical, such as a blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure to correct the "droopy" look of eyelids. Because surgical procedures are invasive and require extensive downtime, it's important to discuss with your dermatologist the option that is right for your lifestyle." 

Photodamage

More than 80 percent of the damage on an aging face is from photodamage which occurs from overexposure to the elements, including the sun and the wind. Individuals with fair skin, light eyes and a history of long-term sun exposure are more susceptible to photodamage, which is represented by blotchy pigmentation, wrinkling and scaling.

Dermatologists have a variety of innovative techniques which can improve the appearance of photodamaged skin, including laser resurfacing, a treatment option where heat or light pulses from a ...
