Our skin basically ages in direct proportion to the speed of the cellular cycle. The truth is that when we are born, our skin begins to age. Even a one-year-old is one year old, in compliance with one year of sun exposure, one year of exposure to environmental damage, and one year of nutrition and sleep patterns. Of course, it renews itself, this regeneration rate starts to decrease from the age of 25-30 and we begin to see the signs of aging.
The upper part of our face ages in direct proportion to the use of mimic muscles. No matter what age we are, we can have wrinkles around the eyes or on the forehead or between the eyebrows. However, these lines begin to settle and deepen as age progresses. For this reason, it is the right approach to try to prevent these wrinkles by controlling our facial expressions or having botox.
The middle region of our face ages in relation to tissue collapse and softening. The main ingredient that determines the tightness of the connective tissue in this region is our hyaluronic acid-containing jelly-like liquid and adipose tissue. To reduce these losses, there should not be a highly variable weight condition. Moreover, women’s monthly periods or pregnancy periods, and then premenopause and menopause are the periods when these losses are experienced the most. Replacement treatments may be preferred to preserve or improve the youth of this region. Filling materials or our own fat or cells (stem cells) can be used for this purpose.
When the lower part of our face and neck succumb to the effect of gravity, it is seen in the 40s that the tension and number of our collagen and elastic fibers decrease. For the treatment of this area, it may be sufficient to stimulate the cells with light and lasers and to make vitamin injections. In older ages, surgical stretching is appropriate.
