The aging process isn’t kind to our skin. Every year we lose approximately 1 percent of the collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) underneath our skin, which equals at least one teaspoon every year starting at about age 35! Plus, the loss of both of these components accelerates after age 50. Cheeks sag, we lose definition and prominent lines around our nose, mouth, and lips may begin to appear. Other common skin concerns include:
- Sagging skin around the nose.
- Sagging skin around the mouth.
- Droopy jowls.
- Droopy brow line.
Both collagen and hyaluronic acid play key roles in the dermal fillers we use to restore volume and reduce sagging facial features today.
