How Do Our Faces Age?
Aging is inevitable. No matter how well we take care of ourselves and no matter how diligent we are with skin care, sooner or later the clock is always going to catch up with us. Although some of us wind up being better preserved than others, every last one of us will sooner or later have to deal with wrinkles, age spots, and other changes that give away our ages. Although aging affects our entire bodies, inside and out, the signs of aging are most apparent in our face. Ears and noses change and begin to droop thanks to elasticity loss in cartilage and connective tissues.

These can certainly help, especially when combined with a proper diet and exercise routine. However, sooner or later they’ll stop doing the job and more drastic measures need to be considered.
