How The Mid Face Changes Over Time

You might not realise it, but your mid face is one region that draws your attention because of its contours and volume. The mid face includes your under-eye area, cheeks and nose region, and the balance of the area impacts the overall appearance of your face.
We all lose facial volume naturally as we age, and this can be particularly apparent in the mid face. Under the eyes, tear troughs may appear as darkness or circles under the eyes, making you seem tired or older than you feel. Over time the soft tissue of the cheeks that provide fullness and curves may start to decrease and descend due to its effects of gravity resulting in a hollow face.
Your nose is also a central feature that harmoniously relates to your other facial features. Around the nose, the nasolabial fold is a natural feature of the face that can be see in people of all ages. It is a groove or fold of skin that runs from the edge of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Deepening of the nasolabial fold occurs because the far and other soft tissue that normally sits high on your cheeks starts to move downward.
There are treatment options available that can restore the fullness of your cheeks and rejuvenate your face including anti wrinkle injections. Call us at the clinic (02) 9362 7400 to schedule a free consultation with our cosmedical nurse specialist Maria-Elena to discuss the possibilities!
