What is facial volume loss?
Facial volume loss refers to the gradual depletion of fat, collagen, and other structural components in the face, leading to a loss of youthful fullness and contour. As we age, the natural processes of collagen and fat production slow down, resulting in a decrease in skin elasticity and volume. This can manifest as hollowed cheeks, sunken temples, thinning lips, and deepening wrinkles. Thankfully, dermal fillers can restore lost volume by injecting safe substances like hyaluronic acid into specific areas, plumping the skin and smoothing out wrinkles.
What are the signs of facial volume loss?
Facial volume loss is characterized by several telltale signs that become more prominent as we age. One common sign is the appearance of sunken or hollow areas in the face, particularly in the cheeks and temples. This loss of volume can lead to a flattened or deflated look, making the face appear less youthful and vibrant.
Additionally, fine lines and wrinkles may become more noticeable as the skin loses its plumpness and elasticity. The nasolabial folds, which are the lines that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, can deepen. Lips may also lose volume and appear thinner. Overall, this cosmetic concern can result in a tired or aged appearance.
How can Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery help?
At our practice in Orlando, we provide dermal filler treatments. Dermal fillers have emerged as a popular and effective solution for combating facial volume loss. Using a gel-like substance composed of hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials, dermal fillers are injected into targeted areas of the face to restore lost volume and rejuvenate the appearance.
These fillers work by replenishing the skin’s natural substances, such as collagen and elastin, which diminish over time. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out, and facial contours are revitalized. These treatments are minimally invasive, with immediate results that can last several months to over a year.
