Your mothers wrinkles or lack there of, may not be the best predictor of how youll age. In fact, a new study claims just the opposite. The study, involving identical twins, suggests that despite genetic make-up, certain environmental factors can add years to a persons perceived age. Results just published on the web-based version of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery(R), the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), reveal that factors like divorce or the use of antidepressants are the real culprits that can wreak havoc on ones face.

A persons heritage may initially dictate how they age but if you introduce certain factors into your life, you will certainly age faster. Likewise, if you avoid those factors you can slow down the hands of time, said ASPS Member Surgeon and study author Bahaman Guyuron, M.D., professor and chairman, department of plastic surgery, University Hospitals Case Medical Center. In this study, we looked at identical twins because they are genetically programmed to age exactly the same, and in doing so we essentially discovered that, when it comes to your face, it is possible to cheat your biological clock.
