Have you ever thought about the reason, why our skin looses its volume while getting older?
There are many scientific theories about that. One of them is the ‘volume loss’ theory of facial aging. A recent small study found other strong evidence to support this.
The researchers measured changes in fat deposits in the area between the eyes and mouth in 19 participants aged 46 at the beginning of the study, and 11.3 years later. They discovered that there was a consistent significant fat loss near the surface and in deeper areas of the skin of all participants.
Based on their findings, the researchers believe that with age not only gravity, but also fat loss under the skin makes our cheeks look deflated, our smile lines look deeper and our face look saggy.
