8 Skin Conditions That Pop Up After You Turn 45

7. VOLUME LOSS & SAGGING IN THE FACE

“The face loses natural volume as we age, when the rubberiness and plumpness of the dermis and connective tissue decrease, as do fat (unfortunately only in the face), bone density and robustness. This leaves the skin loose and sagging, which contributes to hollows and deeper folds such as smile lines and under-eye hollows. Natural fat pads start to sag and protrude in other areas, causing puffiness where we don’t want it, under the eyes and in the jowl area. Dermal fillers, injected under the skin, can best revolumnize these areas, and also can help to stimulate new collagen formation. Different types of filler material are on the market, so you should discuss which is best for you with your board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.”

    I laugh ruefully when I read articles like these. Only the very rich and pampered women can even think about anti-aging help like this. The rest of us, well we go to the drugstore shelf and buy lots of hope in jars….. LOL and it DOES pay, no matter what, to take care of yourself. The BIGGEST thing is stay OUT of that SUN. don’t smoke! use butter, coconut oil, trust me, your skin will look better for it. The one thing I wish wish I could have done is to lift my eye area… you know, the skin is falling over my eyelids? What will later? I won’t see for the skin folds? ha
