The Real Reason Our Faces Age!
Why do we get wrinkles, jowls and that droopy appearance as we age?
You can blame it on several surprising factors: First, Your bones.
It's more than gravity. According to research by Dr. David Kahn, a
plastic surgeon in Palo Alto, Calif., we get droopy as we age because
our facial bones shrink. The bones in the face actually lose volume and
recede a little bit as we get older, all of which plays a surprisingly
important role in the appearance of wrinkles and jowls, report Reuters
and HealthDay News.
"When we think of aging of the face, we typically just think that the
soft tissue--the skin and the fat--deteriorates and becomes looser or
bigger, and we typically just lift everything back up and take out some
skin to tighten it back up," Kahn explained to Reuters. "We don't
usually think of the shrinking of the bones or manage this in terms of
aging. I think we need to look at a way to combine a traditional
facelift with something that adds volume to the face, like with fat
The study: To look for age-related changes in the bony elements of the
face, three-dimensional CAT scans were taken of the faces of 30 men and
30 women in this study. They were equally divided into three age groups:
25 to 44 years old; 45 to 64 years old; and older than 65 years. All
were white and none had broken bones or other medical problems that
could affect the results.
The results: By comparing the CAT scans of the younger and older
participants, Kahn determined there were statistically significant
changes in the angles of the bones of the facial skeleton, especially in
the mid-face area and the lower part of the orbits around the nose.
The facial bones dissolve, shrink and leave empty spaces as we age,
creating a loss of volume. Meanwhile, our skin loses elasticity, and it
can't tighten around those empty spaces. What's left? Drooping and
wrinkles. Women lose facial bone volume at a younger age than men do,
causing them to see the signs of aging earlier.
The takeaway: "As we age, not only do we lose fat in our faces, but also
our bones actually change in contour, often making us look older than we
feel," Kahn told HealthDay News. It's more than gravity that creates
wrinkles and older looking skin. In addition, loss of volume in the face
and very real changes in the facial bone structure cause us to look
older. Kahn speculates that future facial rejuvenation techniques will
include fillers to add back volume caused by shrinking bone, as well as
the traditional lifting of the skin.

The findings were presented at a conference of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Chicago.
BONE LOSS is not the only cause of aging faces. FACIAL PUFF or EDEMA
is another. Kidneys cannot keep pace with the amount of URIC or LACTIC
acids that Hamburger Happy Hombres indulge in. EDEMA and puffy face,
little pig eyes that are swollen, are all a poor kidney syndrome. Then there's fat.
More than 7 grams a day of carb, you get a fat layer across BELLY and matching one
over entire face. Combine EDEMA and CARB, all seniors have meat pies for faces. They all look alike. Do facial muscle
stimulus exercise to keep muscles from lengthening, thinning & slackening. Avoid
sun which destroys skin, which the woman above has. And remember, tobacco, as
that causes oxygen depletion, skin dying, wrinkling.
