What contributes to the ageing face? In the world of cosmetic medicine, there is now a greater understanding about what contributes to the ageing face.
In youth the cheekbones are high and well defined, and the jaw line is sharp, yet soft. This is called “The Triangle of Youth”.
As aging occurs the face becomes more “oblong” with the cheeks flattening due to bone and fat loss, and the jowls develop. The “Triangle of Youth” is now lost which is less attractive and is a giveaway of age.
We also start seeing drooping of the lip edges which can make us look permanently unhappy and sad. This inversion of the “Triangle of Youth” is what SD Medical Arts successfully performs by combining the advanced dermal fillers (Restylane®, Sculptra®, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, Restylane® Lyft, and Radiesse®) and botulinum injections (Botox®, Dysport®) to lift and contour facial features in order to restore the ratio of this “Golden Triangle”.
