Bone re-absorption and the effect on your face

Have you ever wondered why people start to look a little ‘Droopy’ and gaunt in the face as they age? Not only do we lose fat in our faces as we age, but we also experience bone re-absorption! The bone re-absorption contributes to the jowls and changed facial contours as you see below.

Because our bone is reabsorbed by the body our faces start to lack the chiselled jaw line of our youth! I’m sure we all had one! Dermal fillers can work to fill the gap left by bone re-absorption by adding volume and creating a jawline and cheekbones like the one you once had!
