Facial Aging

It can be hard to distinguish someone in their 20’s from someone in their 40’s.

Approximately 36% of aging is due to factors beyond our control, but the rest is up to us.

The secret? Good health, quality of life and of course, great skin care.

Your apparent facial aging can be improved with non-surgical techniques offers at West Wales Dental Clinic.

Ageing Skin

Sometimes it feels like our skin is ageing faster than we are. Wouldn’t it be great if our outer appearance could match the way we feel inside?

The Cause

Young skin is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. Hyaluronic acid absorbs moisture and keeps your skin well hydrated for a youthful look.

As we age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid and fine lines start to appear on the face. Some lines become wrinkles due to outside factors like sun exposure, diet and years of facial muscle movement. Fat loss can create sagging and turn lines into folds, too.

The Effect

Wrinkles and fine lines commonly appear along the lips and eyes and between the nose and mouth.

Even though our wrinkles come with a wonderful history of laughter and smiles, we often wish we could preserve our natural look and hold onto our youthful glow.

Lip Definition

Our lips are one of the most vulnerable areas for ageing, as the skin is very thin. Don’t let ageing skin ruin your beautiful smile.

The Cause

The skin on your lips is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar.

However, the skin loses hyaluronic acid over time, and lines begin to appear around the mouth.

The Effect

The loss of hyaluronic acid leads to the appearance of wrinkles and the loss of fullness to our lips. As our lips become thinner, they lose volume and lack definition.

We can develop “marionette”, lines around the mouth, which can form at the corners going down to the chin or we can even develop a droop to the corners of the mouth, giving your lips a sad appearance.


Facial Volume

A young-looking face has round contours, high cheekbones and a well-defined jawline. There are smooth curves from the cheeks to the edge of the nose, without hollows.

The Cause

As we grow older, the hyaluronic acid we once produced starts to diminish.

Our skin becomes dry and facial volume decreases. Gravity pulls the skin down, resulting in folds and sagging.

The Effect

Over time, the middle of your face loses volume and the lower part of the face begins to form jowls.

The skin starts to sag, pulling the features downwards. And although weight loss can often be a positive thing, it can be a factor.
