Bone changes (loss of density and thickness), and loss of fat, collagen and elastin are the main elements responsible for how our faces age. It’s important to note that all of these factors work together, producing the overall effects we see over the years.
Menopause is also a big player in how the face ages, especially among women in their 50s and beyond. Hormonal variations impact the skin’s natural elasticity and plumpness, leading lines and wrinkles to develop into folds. They are also believed to play a role in bone changes.
Because these aging theories are relatively new and still being understood, there are years of research to be performed in order to learn more. However, experts now understand that aging is caused by a combination of all of these factors.
