Ageing causes lashes to become thinner, sparser and lighter.
Thinning skin, weakening muscles, and shifting fat pads all contribute to the appearance of undereye issues. This typically requires a treatment plan addressing all of these issues for best results.
The shape of the face can sometimes be related to the size of the masseter muscles that are on the bottom corner of the jawline. Grinding, clenching and tension can strengthen and increase the size of these large muscles causing a heavy or square shape appearance of the lower face. By relaxing these muscles with toxin, it can create a slimmer heart-shaped appearance, reduce pain and tension and potentially resolve teeth grinding and TMJ.
Fine lines and wrinkles develop around the mouth area as we age due to smoking, drinking from straws and most commonly everyday facial expressions. They appear as vertical thin fine lines coming off the border of the lip.
Poorly defined, soft and rounded or recessed features are all qualities that relate to a weak jawline. This can be due to genetic skeletal makeup, excess fat under the chin and jawline and bone loss due to ageing.
As you age collagen production decreases and results in loss of skin elasticity causing a sagging, crinkled or thinning appearance.
Folds, creases or lines that develop over time due to repeated muscle contraction, sun exposure, sleeping position and smoking. Static wrinkles are those deeper lines or furrows that show at rest. Dynamic wrinkles are those that show when expressing emotion.
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that causes redness, inflammation and dilated blood vessels causing a flushed appearance of the face. Rosacea typically presents on the cheeks, nose and forehead. It may be exacerbated by extreme temperatures, stress, exercise, spicy foods and sun exposure. Although there is no cure for this condition, it can improve and be manageable with appropriate skin care and procedures.
Melasma is a pigmentation disorder that causes patches of darkened or discolored skin. It is most frequently found on the face, although it can affect other areas as well, and it tends to present in a symmetrical manner. Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation that is most often caused by hormonal changes (such as pregnancy or use of birth control pills) or sun damage.
