Facial Volume Loss
As we age, it is common to identify what is contributing to the change in our features. While facial volume loss can sometimes be easily recognizable, it can also be a subtle contributor to the aging appearance of the face. If you feel that your face looks older or more tired but you are unsure why, you may be experiencing facial volume loss.

Learn More About Facial Volume Loss
As we mature, the collagen and elastin proteins in our skin begin to lose their integrity. These proteins add structure to our skin, and as they deplete, it causes a loss of volume in the skin. Our fat distribution also changes as we get older, and gravity pulls the fat in our faces down over time. These facial changes are part of a natural aging process called soft-tissue atrophy, which can lead to facial hollows, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
Everyone experiences these changes at different rates, depending on many factors. Facial volume loss can also be exacerbated by frequent sun exposure, weight loss, stress, and other lifestyle factors.
As we get older, it is common to start noticing overall changes in facial features, but it can be difficult to determine our specific areas of concern. By recognizing the signs of facial volume loss, we can pinpoint areas that would benefit from subtle and natural-looking improvements in volume. By adding small amounts of volume to targeted areas, the overall face can appear brighter and more refreshed.
Facial volume loss is usually most evident at the cheeks, and is often noticed as a tired looking under eye area. The nasolabial folds, lower face, and chin are also common areas where patients feel that they have concerns that are difficult to identify. The temples and jawline are also high impact areas for volumization.
