Face Layer Ageing Sequence

Each of those layers starts ageing, that is deteriorating functionally and structurally, at a different age. Each layer ages at its own pace, under the influence of different intrinsic and extrinsic factors, and provides its own unique contribution to the aged look of the face.

General layer ageing sequence by age decade, varies by person –

  • In our 20s – skin: dermis and epidermis start ageing and loss of the deep fat pockets under the eyes begins
  • In our 30s – plus all deep fat pockets start deflating and loss of the muscle tone begins
  • In our 40s – plus retaining ligaments, fascia, and spaces start stretching
  • In our 50s – plus bone loss begins.
