Facial Aging

Over time the skin will gradually lose its elasticity, this is accompanied by a decrease in the amount of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA). This natural aging process is accelerated by other factors such as UV light, smoking, muscle contraction, and facial expressions. The resulting affect is facial lines, and wrinkles. There are two many methods to reverse this process; botox injections or dermal fillers.
