Loss Of Facial Volume

From our late teens, collagen and elastin production starts to slow down, further reducing at a rapid rate from age 30. Not only do fine lines and wrinkles develop, but facial volume, plumpness and firmness dramatically decreases due to loss of fat. As collagen is responsible for skin firmness and tone, whilst elastin provides the skin with elasticity, the reduction in their production can further create sagging and facial hollowing. Contributors to the reduction of facial volume include:

  • Genetics
  • Natural Ageing Process
  • Sun damage
  • Environmental aggressors
  • Smoking
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Illness
  • Certain medications and medical conditions
  • Dramatic weight loss/ Frequent weight loss

Areas that may be treated to restore facial volume include:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Under eye area
  • Naso-labial folds (lines from the nose to the lips)
  • Marionettes (lines from the lips to the chin)
