Naturally Occurring Sugars Can Be Good
The appearance of your face changes over time. Look at a person in their 50s or 60s compared to a photograph of them in their 20s and the differences are noticeable. Wrinkles, skin texture and pigment changes are some of the visible signs of aging that appear on the skins surface. Volume loss however is also a key change that occurs naturally over time.
Naturally occurring sugars are one of the natural substances that are present under the skin and deliver facial volume. Unfortunately these sugars decrease over time resulting in a loss of facial volume. If you think about a youthful face it is generally full of volume with smooth contours and curves. In fact, our cheeks and lips are generally at their most voluminous, plump and smooth when we are babies!
The appearance and harmony of our upper, mid and lower face changes over time in part due to this loss of naturally occurring sugar volume. Over time, the amount of soft tissue volume over the cheeks, brows, temples and lips decreases and the ligaments that hold the soft tissue high weaken. This natural volume loss changes the youthful contours of the face and together with the effects of gravity tend to move facial volume downward towards your jaw line.
You can replace or enhance the naturally occurring sugars that help provide volume to the face. Discuss the possibilities with our clinician at Rejuven8 Penrith Cosmetic Clinic. 02 4732 4009.
