In the ever-evolving world of beauty and self-expression, viral trends often provide an intriguing lens through which we can explore our perceptions of age and appearance. The recent sensation caused by the TikTok “aged” filter has not only sparked laughs and conversations but also raised questions about the art of preventing noticeable aging of the face.

According to NYC Board-Certified Integrative Dermatologist Dr. Asmi Sanghvi, the primary reasons for noticeable aging of the face are due to a loss of elastin and collagen, shrinking fat pads, and changes in muscle and bone structure causing a loss of support.
As the video showcases, the TikTok “aged” filter serves as a playful reminder of the changes our faces might undergo over time — which, may we add, is completely normal! Yet, there are ways to embrace the journey of aging while still preserving our youthful essence.
Dr. Sanghvi shares three main categories for preventative skincare: 1) Internal methods, such as nutrition and hydration; 2) External methods, such as skincare routines and botox; 3) Skin tightening devices, such as micro-needling and filler.
