How Does Gravity Affect the Face?

What Goes Up Must Come Down

As we all know, one of the things you really can’t avoid in this life is Gravity. Unless you fancy a sneaky trip to Space, it’s a sure fact that What Goes Up is Coming Back Down.

Or – in aesthetic terms – what starts off perky, ends up a little saggy. In the case of Face Shape, gravity works its magic here as anywhere by pulling all areas downwards.

Where Does Gravity Affect?

This is most obviously manifest by:

  •  lowering of the eyebrows
  • heaviness of the upper eyelids
  • excess skin in the lower eyelids
  • sinking of the apples of the cheeks
  • formation of jowls
  • excess skin in the neck region.

Whilst these typical signs of aging tend to fill people with dread, each can be treated.

1st Steps for Treating Gravity of the Face

As an initial course of action, a lifetime of healthy vitamin-rich diet, plenty of exercise, using sun protection (whilst avoiding harsh weather exposure in general), moisturiser and serum usage and avoiding smoking or alcohol will certainly stand you in good stead for holding off gravity in the face for longer.

Unfortunately, however, even with the best will in the world nobody can prevent the aging process forever.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Gravity of the Face

At this point, the first step is often non-surgical procedures of which there are a whole host specially suited to each of the problems listed above:

  •  lowering of the eyebrows – Muscle Relaxing injections can help relax the Active muscle that causes the brow to drop
  • sinking of the apples of the cheeks – Dermal Fillers can be used to plump out cheek volume
  • Aged and damaged skin – Genuine Dermaroller Therapy.

Surgical Treatments for Gravity of the Face

However, depending on your age and how advanced the affects of gravity already are on your face, you may find that you need a consultation with a specialist surgeon regarding surgical procedures as non-surgical treatments cannot deal with large amounts of excess skin or heaviness, particularly in the upper eyelid region or jowls (although advances in non-surgical treatments like the Nefertiti Neck Lift may be of interest to you!)

Whichever route you decide to take, gravity may be an inevitable fact of life but it is not one that you need to take “lying down”: if you want to do something about the affects of gravity in your face, you can achieve extremely successful results through both non-surgical and surgical procedures for reversing the inevitable effects gravity takes in our face.
