When people turn 50 years old, they may see volume loss in the face and changes in firmness and elasticity of the skin. Combined, this can cause marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and cheek volume loss. Lines may also appear around the lips ("lipstick lines"), and the lips may also become thinner. Other cosmetic concerns like crows feet, frown lines, and forehead lines may become more noticeable as well.
As people age, the face can change shape. Most people’s face shape is an inverted triangle in their younger years, but in the 50s and beyond, the face may start looking like a right side up triangle. This is seen as the chin area becomes wider, and volume loss occurs in the upper cheeks.
How Cosmetic Treatments Can Help
Anti-wrinkle treatments for people over the age of 50 aim to soften facial lines and hydrate the skin. Even though some clients believe they want all the lines eliminated from their face, that’s not recommended. Facial lines and wrinkles are natural and common for people in their 50s. By simply softening them, this creates a more natural, younger looking appearance.
One of the most common requests from clients is help refreshing their eyes. With age, the eyes may appear smaller due to the skin’s loss of elasticity as well as volume loss in the subdermal fat layer. This can cause dark circle and hollowing under the eyes. Fillers can increase volume, especially in the tear trough area, bringing back a more alert, rejuvenated appearance.
Forehead lines are another concern during the aging process, and while fillers can reduce them, it’s a delicate area to treat. The forehead muscles are what keeps the brows up, so it’s important not to compromise them. This is why choosing an experienced aesthetic injector such as James Christian Sardelli, RPA-C is crucial when seeking injectable treatments for wrinkles.
Dermal fillers can also help decrease lines around the mouth and increase volume in the lips. Since marionette lines can make the mouth turn downward (as if frowning), increasing the volume in those areas not only decreases the appearance of those lines, but also improves helps someone appear happier and more approachable.
