Feel more confident with your appearance
As we age we lose facial volume, the contours of the face change, this causes shadow patterns to develop, and fades your youthful highlights.
There are many treatments we offer here at Nazish to help, but before you go ahead with any treatment, we believe it is important to fully understand how and why your face changes over time, that way we can work together to decide on the best treatments for you.
Lines and wrinkles are signs of aging but aging also occurs beneath the skin. Signs of aging exist at every layer of the facial structures.
Generally, as we age, facial bone changes, soft tissues (like muscles) fall due to gravity, and skin sags and droops downward.
Aging is also unique to each individual. Genetics play an important role in aging. As such, how your mother ages can provide a glimpse into how your face may change over time.
Other factors like sun exposure, smoking and diet can play a role in determining when aging begins-and how fast it progresses.
Youthful skin is soft, supple, smooth, well hydrated, and rich with cells that renew relatively rapidly.
As we age, we experience a loss of facial glands, which results in less oil produced, contributing to less moisture in the skin. We lose collagen and elastin, which can lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Due to repeated facial movement, dynamic wrinkles eventually become static lines that are gradually etched into the skin over time. Additionally, sagging can occur because skin is no longer able to bounce back as it did in our youth.
Other factors impacting the way our skin ages, including lifestyle choices and genetics:
Fat-pads are located below the skin’s surface and help to provide volume, facial contours, and fullness.
As we age, fat-pads get thinner and descend. As a result, our face may not look as round and firm as it did in our youth. Hollows can form beneath the eyes, drooping skin can cause deeper lines around the nose and mouth, loose skin can result in a sagging jawline. The loss and downward movement of fat-pads can also make the face appear deflated and sunken in the cheek area.

Beneath our facial fat pads, lie our facial muscles. These muscles are in motion all the time, when we eat, laugh, smile, and frown.
As we age, loss of facial fat, combined with gravity and repetitive muscle activity, can lead to deep wrinkles in the face. As a result, crow’s feet form at the outer corners of our eyes, and creases form between our brows.
Facial muscles also get weaker over time. The loss of muscle tone and thinning skin can give the face a loose, sagging appearance. Our jawline loses its contour, and our profile becomes less defined.

The foundation of our facial muscle, fat-pads, and skin are our facial bones. This bone structure is what gives us our unique facial shape and contour. A youthful bone structure has full and high cheeks, defined brow bones and less sunken eye areas.
With age, we experience facial bone loss. This type of bone loss changes the dimensions and contour of our face, causing areas around our eyes to get larger, a decrease in the angle of our brow bone, and a less sculpted jawline.
