For years, it was believed that the human face aged vertically and uniformly. But today’s school of thought involves the theory of fat compartments and that different parts of the face age at different rates.
Fat naturally resides in different parts of the face, and just like how different areas of the body can lose or gain fat easily, the same notion applies to the face.
There are compartments of deep fat, a second layer, which are responsible for giving structure and fullness in the middle of the cheeks and under the eyes. Some compartments store fat, while others, like the cheek and eye area, are quicker to lose it.
When fat is lost from these key areas, along with changes in bone structure, the signs of aging become more evident.
