How old you look is your business, how young you look is ours.
Our Philosophy is to enhance confidence by helping women reveal the best, most refreshed version of themselves. We believe that women can age beautifully and gracefully. Our treatments can enhance your best features to bring a more youthful look without erasing the beautiful character of your age.
Looking at a mother and daughter, it’s obvious who is older. But, what exactly are the giveaways? It all starts with facial structure.
Science shows that our eyes register an attractive, “youthful” face as one with:
As we age, our facial fat pads shrink and we lose bone density.
The changes under the skin lead to a change in facial structure.
- In a youthful face, the volume looks as if it is all rising up, with most of the volume toward the mid and upper face. This is referred to as the “Triangle of Youth.”
- As we age, the volume begins to move toward the lower face, resulting in a heaviness toward the bottom, around the mouth and jaw. This is referred to as the “Pyramid of Age.”
When we understand what is happening underneath the skin and know when and where the volume begins to fade, we can strategically add volume back to the areas where it is lost to restore a more youthful look.
What, exactly, is happening beneath the skin?
CHANGES IN FAT PADS
Facial aging is typically associated with atrophy and deflation of facial fat pads. In youth, the fat pads provide a structure for skin to lay on, looking smooth and plump. As they shrink with age, gaps begin to form between the fat pads. This affects how the skin lays on the face, resulting in sagging, shadowing and a loss of contour.
How can we correct this? When we understand where the fat has atrophied, we can restore the lost volume with the use of dermal fillers to recreate a more youthful contour and facial shape, while reducing age-related shadow patterns.
CHANGES IN FACIAL BONE STRUCTURE
Our bone structure gives us our unique facial shape. As we age, facial bone recedes, leading to sunken hollow eyes, sunken cheeks, descended brow and less defined jawline. Our unique understanding of the aging process allows us to choose appropriate dermal fillers to restore volume to the areas of bone atrophy.
