Sun Kissed and Sun Smart

Everyone wants to look in the mirror and be happy with their reflection. An aging face doesn't have to show your full age. You can love the skin you are in by learning how to take care of you and your skin.

There are a number of factors that can take a toll on your skin, fat, muscle, and bone.

This results in the 4 DIMENSIONS OF AGING.

The 4 D's

1. Deterioration

Your age, genetics, lifestyle, and even various environmental factors can deteriorate the look and feel of your skin. You may notice gradual changes within the texture of your skin as well as pore size. Colors may change as well, with such spots being read or brown. Hydration levels may also diminish, which will reduce the radiance.

When you have irregular skin complexion, it can diminish vitality. However, all is not lost. Many women (and men) learn how to improve their skin with new routines. There are various cosmetic techniques that can be implemented as well.

2. Deflation

Over time, deflation occurs as we lose the volume within our face. Since we live in wine country, it's best to compare the deflation process to how a grape evolves into a raisin. The fat, muscle, and bone all decrease in volume. The skin covering remaining is impacted because there is no longer the same amount of space for it to cover.

We all experience atrophy within our facial structures as we age, though some people are more impacted by it than others. The majority of volume loss occurs within the subcutaneous fat layer. Collagen can help to improve the volume, which is produced naturally. Various fillers can also be used in order to improve the facial structure.

3. Descent

Descent is another issue that is experienced over time. The loss of collagen also results in a loss of elasticity. Facial tissue will begin to sag. The pull of gravity causes everything to slowly descend. This includes eyelids, eyebrows, and even the formation of a jowl.

Once the descent occurs, it requires intervention in order to lift everything up once again. Since it won't occur naturally, you can work with aspireMD to explore the options that exist.

4. Dynamic Lines

Dynamic lines form that create the crow's feet, the smile lines, and more. The repeated muscle activity produces an array of fine lines, folds, and furrows throughout the face. While these begin as personality traits, they can become more prominent over time. Often, they make us look like tired, older versions of ourselves – and they show not only on the face but down the neck, in our hands, and everywhere else.

The weight of age and gravity will take its toll. It's a multi-factorial process. The good news is that there is a multi-layered approach to improve the overall aesthetics – and aspireMD will be able to discuss the approach with you.

Learning a healthy skincare routine can help you in a number of ways. Sunscreen can be your friend when spending time under the harsh UV rays. Further, exfoliation can help to get rid of layers of dead skin cells. However, sometimes a skin routine alone isn't enough. This is when it is important to explore some of the other solutions available to help you with an aging face.
