Facial Ageing Process

Facial ageing is a multifactorial process that affects different layers.

The Process

Bone Resorption & Remodelling

  • Significant loss of facial bone with age1 leads to biometric volume loss 1,2
  • Noticeable changes in the other layers of overlying soft tissue and skin 1,3

Muscle Tone & Atrophy

  • Facial muscles become more tensed and atrophic
  • Contribute to facial sagging and droopiness
  • Fat pads displacement

Fat Loss & Redistribution

  • Fat pads loss and/or migration under muscular action leading to deep creases and contour defects 1-6
  • Accumulation of fat in some areas (e.g. under the lower eyelid, jaw, mouth) leading to the impression of permanent puffiness
