The aging process is perfectly described by that old saying, “change is the only constant in life.” Time has a way of making its mark on everything. As we go through life, our body changes in a number of ways, with one of the first developments being fine lines and wrinkles on the face. While we cannot alter the fact that time and age will constantly progress, we can take steps to reduce the signs of aging as they occur. An experienced dermatologist, Dr. Roger Koreen has helped patients from East Northport and many other areas regain confidence with minimally invasive anti-aging treatments like Botox.
Why we get wrinkles
There are several reasons that the skin wrinkles and droops as we age:
- Decreases in vital skin-supporting substances like elastin and collagen occur with age, affecting the overall resiliency of the skin.
- Skin also loses natural hydration with age.
- Beneath the skin, volume is lost in the way of fluids and fatty tissues, affecting the contours of the cheeks, chin, and jawline.
- The facial expressions we make throughout life cause the muscles in the upper part of the face to become overly tensed. Their memory keeps them contracted and causes changes in the appearance of overlying skin, such as crow’s feet or brow furrows.
