The aging process is natural and unavoidable. Some of us choose to accept it, while others see no reason to look older than they feel. For those of us who would like to take matters into their owns hands, it helps to start off by learning about how our faces change over time. Advances in medical technologies mean that many options exist for dealing with the signs of aging – from noninvasive with subtle improvements and short downtimes, to invasive with dramatic improvements and longer downtimes. Let’s explore some of the typical changes such as wrinkles, facial volume loss, skin laxity and hyperpigmentation and learn more about the vast array of options for preventing and improving age-related changes.

With every passing birthday, we see changes in our faces. The signs of aging creep up on us. Subtle signs such as fine lines, changes in skin texture and facial volume loss alter our faces subtly when we are young, and then accumulate to produce noticeable changes over the years. It used to be widely considered that the aging process was inevitable, but major advances in medical technologies have shown that looking our age is an option, not a requirement. In addition to eating well, getting exercise and protecting our skin from the sun, other anti-aging treatments can help you look younger for much longer.
The aging process is quite predictable in that many of us will see the same changes over the years, although the rate at which they appear depends largely on genetics and lifestyle. Here are some of the typical changes we see:
