New surveys have found that women across generations experience a dis-connect between how young they feel and how old they look. More than 80% of the women in these surveys say their faces show signs of aging. Changes in the underlying structure of the face are the main culprits in facial aging. These are the changes that cause women to look into the mirror and see an image that they no longer consider youthful.

You can see the effects of aging in the photo above of a fifty “something” mother and her twenty “something” daughter during routine facial assessments by specialists. Notice how different areas of the face change with age due to:

The younger face appears almost as a single structure with smooth facial contours and very little shadowing between the various areas of the face.

With aging, changes in both surface and sub-surface structures of the face cause separation of these areas. In normal light, age brings undesirable shadows that appear in various locations on the face. The goal of aesthetic correction is to help individuals be the best version of themselves with a youthful, more natural looking result over time. Conversations about aging need to be more than skin deep. Talk with a trusted specialist about having a facial assessment to develop your plan for natural looking results and a more youthful appearance.

Feel good about looking your best.

Look the way you feel.
