Faces age due to several genetic and external factors that have an impact on the underlying structures of bone, fat, muscle and tissue, as wells as the “canvas” that covers your face (and indeed your body) - skin.

The emotions evoked by the tickle of a feather, the heat of a hot summer’s day, the biting cold of snow and sleet in winter, or the warm heartbeat of a loving hand – these would not be possible without the skin.

Facial aging is the result of changes to several types of soft tissue, including skin, fat, muscle and bone. Each structure ages differently, and the aging of one structure impacts on another, cumulatively changing how we age.
