Effects of Aging
WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES, SAGGING SKIN, LINES AND FACIAL CREASES?
Our beautiful and youthful skin eventually joins us in the aging process. As we grow older, the tissues that normally keep our skin’s appearance youthful and fleshy start to break down, leaving less attractive, sagging skin and unwanted lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. For those willing to undergo medical procedures, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons present a number of options to reduce the appearance of these undesirable characteristics.
Cosmetic surgery can temporarily reverse the effects of tissue aging, using common procedures like resurfacing and injections of “fillers” like collagen to fill facial depressions. Injections of Botox®, a commercial product that relaxes facial muscles, strive to preserve a youthful appearance as well.
Cosmetic surgery provides a very common avenue for restoration of a youthful appearance.
