Fundamentals for healthy skin
Ageing gracefully is a beautiful thing, however some changes which occur we wish would slow down. At Berkshire Aesthetics our approach is to alleviate some of the physical signs which look older than you feel.Fifty is seen as the new thirty, sixty the new forty, our lifestyles are much more active than our parents at the same age and how we feel inside often does not reconcile with how we look on the outside.
Facial ageing a complex process with many structural changes going on behind the scenes. When we are young the fat in our faces is evenly distributed and which plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks, and areas around the eyes and mouth.
With age the face loses volume as fat decreases and clumps up, and shifts downward. Facial features that were formerly round may sink, and skin that was smooth and tight gets loose and sags. Meanwhile other parts of the face gain fat, particularly the lower half, so we tend to sag around the chin and jowls appear in the neck.
And, of course, there are the wrinkles. The deep ones in the forehead and between the eyebrows are called expression, or animation, lines. They’re the result of facial muscles continually tugging on, and eventually creasing, the skin. Other folds may get deeper because of the way fat decreases and moves around. Finer wrinkles are due to sun damage, smoking, and natural degeneration of elements of the skin that keep it thick and supple.
