Aging of the face is influenced by internal factors such as genetics and hormonal constitution and external factors including ultraviolet (UV) exposure from sunlight, pollution, cigarette smoke, repetitive muscle movements, and diet. The greatest external factors are smoking and exposure to UV light.
In general, men are more likely than women to engage in high-risk health behaviors that contribute to aging. Men also tend to underutilize preventive health care services including dermatology care compared with women.
Look better and stay healthy by avoiding exposure to the sun, especially between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm, wearing hats and sun-protective clothing, applying a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30, and refraining from smoking.
In addition, there are many non and minimally invasive treatment options for rejuvenating the aging face including topical skincare, photo rejuvenation, lasers, botulium toxin injections (Botox, Dysport), Filler injections, Kybella injections, and Coolsculpting.
