How the face age? Slow down aging with facial acupuncture.

Everyone ages differently but there are certain general patterns. Visible signs of aging generally begin to manifest in thirties.

Understanding exactly how the face changes with age can help you determine what issues need to be addressed and which treatments will be most effective.

How the face ages

The aging process involves both intrinsic and extrinsic influences.

Intrinsic (cellular and genetic) aging begins in our twenties as the production of collagen decreases, eventually leading to a loss in skin elasticity. Cellular turnover also gradually slows, leading to duller-looking skin.

Extrinsic aging consists of environmental and lifestyle-related factors which can speed up the aging process. These include diet, alcohol consumption, smoking and sun exposure.

Everyone experiences these aspects of aging differently which lead to aging at different rates chronologically and physically.

Twenties are the most glorious year for the skin with glow of youth. Only towards the end of the twenties the skin may begin to look slightly duller than it used to. The early signs of sun damage, including wrinkles, enlarged pores and sun spots start emerging.

In thirties, skin dead cells become visible, the skin is duller; lines and brown spots begin to form and the skin starts loosing and losing volume.

In forties, aging signs become more noticeable: apart from further signs of dull and loose skin, lips are loose, face was dragged downwards, eye brows, eyes and mouth descend and jaw line slackens, face becomes empty due to loosing fat pad. Some age more than others because of variation in genetics, environmental exposure and lifestyle behaviors.

By adding additional ten years, facial changes accelerate more and more. The face loses its volume in the muscles and soft tissues. The skin is dull and loose because of loss of collagen and elastin. Women lose about one-third of their collagen in the first five years of menopause, causing the skin to become drier, looser and more vulnerable to inflammation, sun damage and stressors, such as pollution and underlying health issues. This is the time that the skin needs to be rescued, if it was neglected for years.

Beyond fifties, facial aging could be accelerated dramatically as time passes by.

There are steps to take to avoid these aging influences; such as drinking enough water and wearing sunscreen, of course having facial acupuncture.
