Glabellar rhytidis, more commonly as frown lines, are wrinkles that form on the forehead as a result of the aging process. As one ages, the collagen in the skin breaks down and the skin’s ability to repair the damage reduces. This results in decreased collagen and consequently, decreased elasticity. Genetic factors and the shape of the face also play an important role in the development of frown lines.
Eyelid ptosis, or blepharoptosis, is the drooping or falling of the eyelids that restricts vision, with the affected person having to tilt their head to be able to see clearly. This droopiness is also a cosmetic issue, responsible for issues with self-image and esteem.
The skin around our eyes is very thin and sensitive, which makes it the first area to show signs of ageing, visible in the face in the form of wrinkles. These small wrinkles appear at the corner of the eye and resemble crows feet, hence the name.
Puffy lower eyelid or eye bag is a common sight associated with allergies, poor sleep, and sleep hygiene, increased salt intake, and aging. These facial features are the result of the sagging of skin and weakness of eye muscles and either fat or fluid accumulation in the under-eye area. This puffiness or swelling of the lower eyelids can be a huge cosmetic flaw and need immediate intervention.
Under-Eye Contour Depression is a cosmetic flaw more commonly known as sunken eyes, hollow eyes, or eye bags, and is the result of dehydration, aging, lack of proper sleep, or even rapid weight loss. Whatever the reason might be, sunken eyes take away the radiant glow of the face and make it appear dull and tired.
Nasolabial lines, more commonly known as smile lines or laugh lines are naturally occurring grooves on both sides of the nose and separate the cheeks from the upper lip. They are common facial features that should only appear when smiling, hence the name. When not smiling, the smile lines should disappear but with age, they become permanent features of the face and negatively impact facial aesthetics.
Vermilion is the area or zone between the lip and the skin adjacent to it and it is covered with specialized stratified squamous epithelium, which is in continuity with the oral mucosa of the gingivolabial groove. A thin vermilion is a characteristic facial feature associated with many genetic alterations and conditions but also with the ageing process.
