Summary: To the surprise of many people, the
loss of fat and sun exposure play a bigger role than gravity in aging the
face, according to a study.
“People make assumptions about how the face ages because when they pull up on their facial skin, they look better,” said Val Lambros, MD, ASPS member and author of the study. “Actually the pull of gravity on facial tissues is not a significant component of facial aging.

aging process begins when we enter the world and the effects of aging are evident in our bodies throughout our lives. Beginning in our 20's, the
signs of aging start to become
noticeable. Genetically programmed chronological aging causes changes in
collagen and elastin, the connective tissues that supply firmness and elasticity to the skin. The genetic program of individuals is different, so the loss of skin firmness and elasticity occurs at different rates and different times in one individual as compared to another. As skin becomes less elastic, it also becomes drier and underlying fat padding begins to disappear.

Customers also inquire about when they should expect to see results from using anti-aging products. Again, we respond by saying that results will be different for each individual, generally due to the condition of
one's skin prior to use. However, across the board, we say not to expect a miracle, as there is no anti-aging product on the market that provides overnight
results, except for plastic surgery. Whether you are trying to reduce the appearance of fine lines,
wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness or age
spots, the process is gradual and takes anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks depending on the severity of your problem areas. After allowing the products time to take effect as well as following product directions, you can be sure to notice significant improvement in the appearance of your skin.

product, it is highly possible that your skin will react to the ingredients. You may experience irritation,
redness, dryness or a mild breakout, which should only last for the first 3-5 days of use.
