Common signs of facial ageing

Dermal fillers in your 50

As a natural part of the ageing process, facial structure and appearance can change in a number of ways. But what are the most common signs of facial ageing? And how can these symptoms be treated to create a more youthful appearance? 

What are the most common signs of facial ageing?

There are a number of different visible ageing signs that appear on the face as a natural part of the ageing process. These include:

Fine lines and wrinkles

Uneven skin texture and tone

Sagging skin and the loss of volume

Under eye bags and hollows 

Fine lines and wrinkles 

One of the most common and noticeable signs of facial ageing is the development of fine lines and wrinkles. These can become noticeable around different parts of the face including the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth. These are all areas that are often moving to form different expressions. As the skin loses elasticity as part of the natural ageing process, the skin will form lines and creases in these areas, as the skin does not have the elasticity to bounce back. 

There are a number of different treatment options that can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to smooth the skin. These include dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid, which can plump up the skin and replace lost volume. These can be used in precise amounts to fill in folds and lines, providing a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Uneven skin texture and tone 

As we age, the skin’s texture and tone can also change. Sun exposure, genetics, and other factors can lead to the development of age spots, redness, and uneven pigmentation, which can age the skin.

There are several different aesthetic procedures that can help to improve skin texture and tone including chemical peels and IPL treatment, and the combination of these two with an illumiFacial treatment. As such, an illumiFacial treatment can be the perfect option for restoring and rejuvenating skin texture and tone. This involves applying a light chemical peel to the skin, which will help to remove the outer layers of skin and start the rejuvenation process. This will be followed by medical grade IPL treatment. This works by emitting high-intensity light that penetrates the skin and breaks up the pigmentation, helping to create a more even complexion. This can be highly effective for restoring a more youthful and balanced skin texture and tone, and can leave your skin transformed.

Sagging skin and loss of skin volume 

Another common sign of facial ageing is sagging skin. This is another side effect of the loss of skin elasticity as part of the ageing process, combined with a loss of skin volume. As the skin loses volume and elasticity it can lead to drooping or sagging skin, particularly in the lower face and neck. This can result in the development of jowls and a less defined jawline. 

To treat and improve the appearance of sagging skin, dermal fillers can be highly effective. Because dermal fillers can replace lost volume, these can be injected strategically to restructure the facial shape and to provide lift to areas of sagging skin. This is very effective around the jawline and cheeks, helping to create a more youthful and sculpted facial contour.

Under eye bags and hollows 

As well as sagging skin, the reduction of volume and the movement of fat pads further down the face can lead to hollow areas developing, particularly under the eyes. This can be made worse by the development of under eye bags and puffiness, which can be caused by the lack of skin elasticity, genetics and changes in fluid retention. 

Again, dermal fillers are the number one treatment option for this symptom of facial ageing. 

These can reduce the appearance of under-eye bags by filling in the hollow areas and smoothing out the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek. This results in a more refreshed and youthful look.
