Chances are you’ve heard about Botox® and facial fillers, but knowing what you need to combat the ageing process can often be overwhelming and intimidating. Understanding the ageing process is the most important step in deciding what treatment options to use.
So, what actually happens to your face when you age?
How does it age?
Ageing of the face can start as early as 20 and continues throughout your life. How fast your face ages and to what extent differs from person to person. These things typically happen as you age:
Soft tissues (muscles, fat, connective tissue) fall due to gravity: As you age, loss of collagen in the deep tissues, along with the effects of gravity and repeated activity lead to deep wrinkles in the face.
Volume loss from fat pads: These are located below the skin’s surface. As you age, they get thinner and descend. Hollows can form beneath the eyes. Drooping tissues can cause deep lines around the nose and mouth. Fat can accumulate beneath the chin causing a double chin.
Skin changes and wrinkles: As you age, you experience a loss of collagen and elastin. which results in the development of laugh lines, frown lines and crow’s feet. There is also a reduction in hydration and a rougher texture
Facial bone changes: The bones are the foundation for your facial muscles, fat pads and skin. As you age, you may experience facial bone loss, which changes the dimensions and contour of your face.

Botox has become a staple of cosmetic enhancement, but today, more than half of its revenue comes from its therapeutic uses for conditions.
What are migraines?
A migraine is a type of headache where the person often has an intense throbbing headache and additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or increased sensitivity to bright light, noise or smell.
Migraines are thought to be caused by changes in the chemicals of the brain, in particular serotonin. Serotonin levels are believed to decrease during a migraine, which can cause the blood vessels in the brain to spasm and then dilate, causing the headache. Although some acute migraines are usually treated using painkillers and anti-sickness medications this may not help others.
