Aging morphotype - This is an individual scenario that "plays out" in the body of each of us. And the skin is involved in this process as one of the very first organs that becomes a target for
old age. The type of aging depends on the layer in which the changes begin and which components of the skin will suffer. Thanks to long observations in cosmetology and modern technologies, we have learned to understand and understand our own type of aging - and this is a unique tool! It gives us the opportunity to predict exactly how your facial features will change and what to do about it.
Having recognized your morphotype, in fact, you get in your hands an excellent beauty instruction or a guide to action, which will tell you what kind of prevention plan you need, what to start strengthening and what to actively work on right now. Of course, it can be quite difficult to independently determine your type of aging, but let's try to figure it out together and consider the stars as an example of aging.
Cosmetologists distinguish 4 main morphotypes of aging:
Alla Pugacheva and other stars who married men much younger than themselves
Alla Borisovna Pugacheva was married five times. The fourth husband of the Prima Donna was the aspiring pop singer Philip Kirkorov, who was eighteen years younger than her. From childhood, Philip considered himself a fan of the singer, and, having become famous, he decided to get her favor. And he succeeded. They got married in 1994 and lived together for 11 years, and after parting they maintained a close relationship. The fifth husband of the singer was Maxim Galkin, he is 27 years younger than Alla Borisovna. The couple are raising two children - daughter Lisa and son Harry.

Tired morphotype is considered the most favorable option, a kind of marker of physiological aging of the facial skin. This option is typical for thin women who are not prone to weight gain, with an oval or diamond-shaped face. The face of a tired morphotype looks fresh and rested in the morning, exhausted in the evening.
With age, the owners of such a face plan are characterized by the following changes:
- decreased muscle tone, weakening of the ligamentous apparatus;
- lack of volume in the middle third of the face, due to which the severity of the nasolacrimal groove and nasolabial fold is manifested;
- decreased skin turgor and elasticity, deterioration of skin quality, dull complexion;
- drooping of the corners of the eyes and mouth, wrinkles in the corners of the eyes.
Prevention and treatment:
choose home care with a high content of active ingredients (antioxidants, vitamins C, E, glutathione) that block the action of free radicals
From procedures: face modeling with fillers (preparations based on hyaluronic acid), biorevitalization, mesotherapy, PRP-therapy, massage, care and peeling. Of the hardware procedures, it is worth paying attention to ultera, liftera, ultraformer to increase collagen synthesis and prevent displacement of fatty compartments and prolapse of tissues

The owners of this morphotype, it is also called a baked apple, are prone to the early appearance of wrinkles. But at the same time, due to the unexpressed subcutaneous tissue, the "floating" oval does not threaten the representatives of this morphotype.
The main age characteristics of this morphotype are:
- dryness and dehydration of the skin, "parchment" effect;
- decrease in skin elasticity, due to which the early appearance of a large number of small wrinkles - forehead, between the eyebrows, "crow's feet";
- signs of photodamage to the skin (pigmentation);
- deformation of the oval is insignificant or absent.
Prevention and treatment:
to prevent moisture loss, it is recommended to use skin moisturizers (oils, ceramides), antioxidants (stabilized vitamin C, coenzyme Q10, products containing trehalose that prevent dehydration. To increase collagen synthesis - cosmetics with retinol. Spf protection is mandatory
From procedures: chemical peelings to combat photodamage (milk, retinoic), biorevitalization to replenish hydroreserves, mesothreads, contour plastics, botulinum therapy, BBL-rejuvenation technique
It is the most characteristic morphotype for the Slavs. Such a face looks young for a long time, it does not have a mesh of small wrinkles, and a good skin turgor persists for a long time. But with age, under the influence of gravity, the face begins to sink and loses its clear outline.

- change in the oval of the face - "floated" lower third, second chin, flews;
- deepening of the labial-chin and nasolacrimal grooves, as well as a lack of volume in the middle third of the face, cheekbones;
- tendency to rosacea, redness;
- swelling of the eyelids.
Prevention and treatment:
home care products should be aimed at collagen synthesis, skin renewal - retinol, acids. Pay attention to massage, gymnastics, myostimulation. For this type of aging, these techniques work best
From salon procedures: RF-lifting, needle RF, creation of a collagen frame using the smas-lifting technique, lifting threads, replenishing the lost volume with fillers based on hyaluronic acid, phototherapy to correct vascular changes and pigmentation
Representatives of the muscle morphotype age rather slowly: there are practically no wrinkles, the skin remains elastic, the oval retains its clarity until old age. Even after 45 years, the owners of this morphotype look very young. It is typical for the inhabitants of Asia (Japan, Mongolia, Central Asia), in Russia it is typical for the eastern regions.
