High cheekbones and well defined jaw lines are hallmark symbols of youth and beauty.
Sadly, both our environment and the natural aging process change the shape of our face, causing our jawline to become undefined, effectively “aging” us.
How Aging Affects Your Jaw Line
Our skin contains a naturally occurring sugar called Hyaluronic Acid that helps it maintain volume and elasticity, but our skin produces gradually less HA as we age.
As we age we also lose bone density and tissue volume, causing skin to droop down towards the chin. This causes wrinkles to form and our face to lose definition, balance and natural shape, and the jaw line to become undefined.
A youthful face has an even distribution of fat under the skin which gives it a well-rounded shape with smooth curves and contours. As we age, that fat starts to shift to down on our face. This results in the bones of the forehead and cheeks becoming more visible, the folds on the sides of the nose becoming more accentuated, and the shape of the jaw becoming wider and lower. A look we perceive as “old”.
Youthful skin is tight and smooth, allowing it to stay put. Over time, exposure to gravity, the sun and other environmental elements damages our skin, causing it to lose elasticity. This causes your skin to shift downward, or sag, having the effect of “softening” the jaw line.
Luckily there are non-surgical options available that can fight back against aging and hold off the effects of time.
