Inflammaging is a process by which chronic inflammation accelerates skin aging and age-associated skin conditions. Skin looks older than it should look – wrinkled, dry, pigmented, dull and reactive.
Jawline and chin sculpting with dermal fillers can reframe and change face shape instantly and beautifully. When well done, the jawline looks naturally defined, not too sharp and hyper-sculpted, but with stronger definition and improved facial shape. Jawline and chin sculpting with dermal fillers also can reduce the appearance of jowls, remodel facial proportions, and even create a slimmer face.
Lip goals with dermal fillers are natural-looking, defined and smooth. Filler lip goals also include improved symmetry, shape and balance of facial features. Lips should never distract or distort facial balance. Any degree of lip enhancement changes overall facial appearance. Again, balance is key to natural lip goals.
Crepey skin, like crepe paper, appears flimsy, finely wrinkled, dehydrated and, basically, old. Crepey skin is first noticeable in thin skinned areas such as around eyes, upper arms, hands and neck. Without intervention and without warning, crepey skin can blanket the chest, upper legs, knees, lower arms and elbows.
Jowls of all different degrees happen as we age, regardless of the efforts we make to halt the process. Besides time and aging, genetics and body shape are factors we can’t control. Other factors to blame for this sagging at the jawline include a long history of fluctuating weight, a few bad habits and the loss of elasticity.
The most ardent fans of retinoids are not only dermatologists, but also everyone who uses them properly and consistently. So, what makes retinoids such a big deal? Why are they the most prescribed anti-aging, anti-acne medications on the planet?
Marionettes are a result of the general facial aging process: volume loss and loss of structural support from shrinking facial fat pads, bone and mineral loss (particularly the bony resorption of the mandible), decrease in collagen and elastin production and hormonal changes that thin and weaken skin. Movement, genetics and bad habits also contribute to development and severity of marionettes.
