Twins Show the Smoking Gun on Facial Aging

You will not be surprised to read that smoking is bad for you, however, you may be surprised to learn that smoking makes your face age more rapidly too.

Both of these twins were smokers. Guess who smoked longer...the one on the right.

In their November 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported significant differences in facial aging between twins who smoke and their identical, non-smoking twin.

The study, conducted at the Twin Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio, found the most significant differences in aging in the middle and lower third of the face.

You can see more photos and read more about this study by going to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website and the associated article on the CNN website.
