Age-related changes in the face

Age-related changes in the face

For her 17 November, 2017

As people age, how the face and neck normally appear changes. The loss of muscle tone and thinning of the skin give the face a flaccid or saggy appearance.

According to the website MedlinePlus, in some people, flabby jowls may create the look of a double chin. To a certain point, wrinkles cannot be avoided; sun exposure and tobacco use make them develop faster, however. You may also like: New drug to stop bleeds in emergency situations.

The number and size of sunspots and dark spots on the face also increase due to the pigment in the skin, which is also largely due to sun exposure. Other changes that commonly occur include:

  • In some people, their ears may lengthen (probably caused by cartilage growth). Men may grow hair in their ears, which may become longer, thicker and more noticeable.
  • Eyebrows and eyelashes become gray. As with other parts of the face, the skin around the eyes gets wrinkles, creating crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes.
  • The weakening of the muscle that supports the upper eyelid may cause the eyelids to droop, which may limit vision.
