Lack of loss of volume in the under eye area can create a trough appearance. The ageing process can also lead to formation of under eye bags and dark circles.
The most common cause of scarring in the face is acne. Scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can linger in the skin long after the condition itself has been treated.
Rosacea is a chronic, genetic skin condition that is more common in women and fair skins. The skin flushes and becomes red easily, in more severe cases there may be pimples and visible broken blood vessels.
As we age, our body produces less collagen and naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. As a result, lips lose their volume, become thinner and less defined.
Wrinkles are formed with repetitive movements of facial muscles, for example frowning, smiling, or squinting.
Jowling is a natural part of the ageing process. Age-related loss of bone around the cheeks, diminution and downward migration of facial fat pads along with the reduced ability of skin to produce collagen and elastin, lead to loss of lower jaw definition and jowls.
Masseter muscles on the sides of our jaws may become enlarged due to several factors. Teeth grinding and clenching, jaw misalignment and genetics can all be factors in the process.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by trauma to the skin, the ageing process, sun, pollution or hormones and medication.
The tissues in our earlobes lose volume and overlying skin loses its elasticity as we age, leaving the earlobes looking empty and lined.
Skin texture and condition change as we age. Slower cell turnover and reduced collagen content can make the skin appear dull, tired, and sagging.
