This type occurs mostly in women who easily gain weight. Facial contour is deforming, and creases occur on the neck and in the décolleté region due to excess subcutaneous fat. The skin becomes flabby, but pigmented spots and wrinkles are rare with this type of aging.

Cosmetologists call this type of aging the most natural and sparing. Usually, it occurs with skinny women having an oval-shaped face. This type is characterized by a small puffiness, dark circles around the eyes, nasolabial folds, and also the lowering of the corners of the mouth. All these signs of aging make the face look tired.

People with this type of aging usually have well-developed facial muscles. It is also characterized by the occurrence of pigment spots, “crow's feet,” folds in the nasolabial area and lowered corners of the mouth. At the same time, the skin can remain smooth for a long time, and the face contour is preserved up to the deep, old age.

The oval of the face doesn’t deform over the years, the double chin does not appear, but often, the skin is getting covered with fine-scaled wrinkles quite early. In addition, this type is characterized by redness and irritation on the face, but a strong muscle tone helps to retain its structure for a long time.
