A tired, sunken appearance is typically a result of facial volume loss which occurs when there is deterioration of the underlying elements of the skin: fat, collagen, and bone. Volume loss is caused by natural aging and is accelerated by genetics, lifestyle, chronic sun exposure, hormone levels, or illness. At the same time, the body’s production of hyaluronic acid also diminishes, leading to skin that is dehydrated and less plump.

Signs of aging in the lower face are often due to volume loss in the cheeks. When the cheeks flatten, the skin begins the sag and there is a deepening of the nasolabial folds (parentheses lines running from the nose to the corner of the mouth). Other signs of volume loss include thinning lips, hollowing of the temples and under eye area, and the appearance of marionette lines (lines running from the corner of the mouth to the chin).

Facial volume volume loss treatment is done effectively with the use of dermal fillers. There are a variety of dermal fillers available ranging from temporary to long-lasting, and they instantly rejuvenate and refresh the appearance without downtime.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

As we age, volume loss in the mid-face creates a flat and tired appearance. It can also lead to a saggy or sad appearance because the contours in the lower face are not as sharp and defined as they once were. Dermal fillers work to restore facial volume, creating a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

As we age, the fat compartments in our face deflate and descend, although not necessarily in a balanced or predictable fashion. Areas in the mid face tend to deteriorate first, followed by loss of volume around the mouth and jawline. The tip of our nose also descends, and our nasolabial folds deepen. In fact, patients often don’t suspect volume loss until they notice their nasolabial folds have deepened. In addition, with the natural loss of collagen, our skin loses the ability to bounce back, causing it to sag.

The majority of dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid – a sugar that is natural to the body. Hyaluronic acid is able to absorb 1000 times its molecular weight in water, making it an ideal treatment for restoring facial volume loss. When injected under the skin, hyaluronic acid fillers temporarily “fill and plump” those areas that are depleted, resulting in a naturally refreshed and less tired appearance. The results from dermal filler treatment are immediate and typically last 9-12 months
