Volume Loss

Facial volume loss is one of the more subtle signs of aging to identify, creeping up on us slowly rather than all at once. The gradual depletion of the skin’s vibrancy, suppleness and youthful glow is due to one gene’s, exposure to toxins and pollutants in the environment, yo-yo dieting, smoking, hormonal changes, certain medications, and the natural course of getting older.

We see our once luscious lips looking thinner and less sensual; we see our cheeks become sunken and hollow; and we watch our skin become loose and saggy around our jawline. It’s as though the skin loses its natural scaffolding and collapses, causing our self-esteem to plummet in the process as well.

Behind the scenes, our bodies are slowly losing their supply of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for the skin’s firmness and hydration. Once these all-important compounds begin to dwindle, we are left with skin that is tired and stale-looking. Many times this one change in our complexion can add years onto our perceived age, as others wonder why we look so “exhausted”.

There is a solution

Thankfully today’s advanced cosmetic arsenal comes with an array of tools to help combat the wrinkles, fine lines and volume loss associated with aging. In the past, only plastic surgery could lift, tone and tighten the skin. Today, non-surgical, non-invasive dermal fillers with virtually no downtime are being used to effect dynamic, breathtaking changes in the complexion and profile. These fillers, while not permanent, do last a long time, anywhere from six months up to several years.

Facial dermal fillers and injectables work to stimulate the skin’s deepest layers, restoring lost collagen and elastic, while building smooth, resilient contours. They can be used to reshape, augment and sculpt the various elements of the face for a more attractive overall aesthetic. We work with Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm, Voluma, Sculptra, Kybella, BOTOX, Dysport, and Belotero, all safe, FDA-approved compounds that produce elegant and stunning results.
