The Ageing Mid-Face
The sides of the nose down to the mouth corners (the nasolabial folds) is an area of the face which tends to develop a deeper crease over time and can be the site of the first noticeable sign of ageing. In our Oxfordshire and Warwickshire clinics we find that even younger women and men can start to see this change and therefore seek dermal fillers as a treatment option.
In the case of older women and men, this deepening groove can be accompanied with jowls, showing as saggy skin on the jawline. Closer inspection often reveals a flatter mid face with depressions at the side of the nose just under the inner eye area. The eye area itself may have hollowed and created a ‘tear trough’; a cavernous shady appearance under the eye. Further examination may reveal a hollow a little further down below the tear trough. Below the mouth, a gap appears on the jawline and this can develop into sagging at the corners of the mouth - the base of those oral commissures, as they are called, or more commonly known as 'marionette lines'.
We attended an insider event in London today, where not one but two brand new Obagi skincare products were revealed. The two new additions join the existing Professional-C antioxidant range which is a fantastic option for addressing premature skin ageing while preventing further environmental damage.
At the start of year The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) – the world’s largest association of facial plastic surgeons – released the data from their annual survey. It showed that looking unnatural is a top fear for many when it comes to cosmetic interventions - people increasingly want to look good without others thinking they've 'had something done'.
