When you look at the above diagram, you can see the dynamics of how the face changes with age. This phenomenon is aptly named “The Triangle of Youth”.
As you can see from the photo, a youthful face is made up of primarily 3 attributes: high cheekbones, full cheeks and a well defined jaw.
As you can also see, a youthful face has the apex of the triangle at the bottom and the base of the triangle at the top – with most of the volume up high and gradually coming to a point at the chin.
However, as we age the triangle inverts and most of the volume falls to the lower face. The face appears to have “fallen down” – becoming oblong with flattened cheeks. Deep lines appear where there were none before. The jawline becomes full and then the dreaded “jowling” appears.
There are several anatomic changes that happen in the aging face. Facial volume loss, decrease in collagen production, and facial bone loss all happening at the same time cause the face to fall down and forward.
The good news is – it might not be time for a facelift just yet!
Full facial rejuvenation with dermal filler can restore lost volume in the cheeks and deep facial folds, replace the jawline of youth, and minimize the appearance of jowling.
Dermal fillers can provide dramatic and safe results for people with mild to moderate volume loss. When strategically placed by an experienced injector, fillers can replace the lost volume, collagen and bone – lifting the face from the top down and restoring that Triangle of Youth.
This can be a game changer for many people however be sure to choose your injector wisely! This is a very advanced procedure that requires a skilled injector with thorough knowledge of facial anatomy, filler products, and injection techniques.
