As we age, the repetitive use of the facial muscles under our skin begins causes wrinkle formation that progresses from being dynamic (ie present only when we use those muscles eg frown lines) to being static (ie present even when those muscles are not being used eg “angry lines” or “the 11s”; the grooves that run from the nose to the mouth; crows feet etc).
The degree to which a person develops wrinkles, their depth and appearance is variable and dependent on some known factors:
As we age also, other changes take place in the body, and the facial structures :
Skin begins to lose its elasticity
Underlying collagen is gradually lost and thins
Gravity takes its toll, adding heaviness to the lower face, away from the upper face.
Fat pads that give young people their “babyface” appearance are gradually lost, giving a gaunt/ hollow appearance
There is remodeling (ie reshaping) of the underlying bones of the face, including the jaw, mouth, temples and eyes.
All these factors contribute to the general loss of appearance of youthfulness. In some people, these changes may cause them to look angry or sad, even when they are not. Some older women come to me because they keep being told they look angry when concentrating. Others report being told that they scare the grandchildren and want some gentle help.
