What is facial volume loss?
Facial volume loss is usually noticeable in the form of hollow cheeks, sunken temples, and thin lips. Not only can the loss of volume result in a grim appearance, but it can also cause you to appear older than you actually are. Now, more and more people desire added volume which portrays a more youthful and lively appearance.
What causes facial volume loss?
Like most aesthetic concerns, the aging process often results in a loss of facial volume. Not only do our bodies produce less collagen (which gives skin its elasticity and plumpness), but they produce less subcutaneous fat as we grow older. A sudden loss of weight, smoking and other poor lifestyle choices can also accelerate volume loss and create an aged or hollow appearance.
What causes thin lips?
Around the 30s, you might notice that your lips becoming thinner and more deflated. The fact is, thin lips occur for the same reason that your skin begins to sag over time: lost collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA give our lips plumpness, moisture and an overall look of youthfulness. Lip shape and size is also determined by genetics. If your lips are naturally small, there’s a good chance that your lips will begin to thin out in your late 20s.
What are sunken temples?
Sunken temples refer to volume loss of the temple, the region on each side of the face between the top of the cheekbone and the brow bone next to the eye. Volume loss in this area can create an unflattering shadow effect, leading to a dreary appearance of the eyes and face. The temples are definitely an overlooked aspect of the face and most people wouldn’t think to address them with aesthetic treatments. Adding volume to the temples with injectable facial fillers can provide stunning results, however, and can give you the more youthful look you’ve been desiring.*
