Treatment Options for Facial Volume Loss

With spring just around the corner, nature is gearing up for another beautiful revitalization. So, why shouldn’t you do the same? Now is the perfect time for a gentle refresh of your appearance and to prepare yourself for fun in the summer sun. Facial volume loss, a natural condition, can give your face a hollowed or thinned appearance. A variety of circumstances can cause facial volume loss; however, this important concern can be treated. Explore these and more below.

What Causes Facial Volume Loss?

  • Aging: As we age, fat and other tissues tend to shrink or diminish, and the skin loses its former elasticity.
  • Sun exposure: Unprotected sun exposure can damage the skin. When bombarded by ultraviolet light (UV), the skin can suffer damage both on and beneath its surface, creating a shrunken, hollowed-out impression.
  • Weight loss: Losing weight can cause fat and other facial tissues to sag, leading to a thinner, more aged appearance.
  • Seasonal changes: Winter, in particular, can cause dehydration and saggy skin.

Several Non-Invasive Options for Treating Facial Volume Loss

Fortunately, several innovative, restorative treatments are available to repair a youthful appearance’s natural vibrancy and fullness.

Laser Skin Tightening

Laser skin tightening or laser therapy can help patients with mild facial thinning. It works through focused beams of light used to target deeper layers of the skin. It can stimulate collagen and elastin production, proteins that provide critical structure and elasticity to our skin.

Laser therapy is non-invasive, and there are no incisions or long recovery periods involved. As a result, it’s a popular technique for those who desire a less intensive procedure with excellent results.

Dermal Fillers

Gel-like and injected beneath the skin, dermal fillers are an excellent way to replace lost volume and improve the face’s gentle contours.

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular and least invasive cosmetic procedures to treat facial volume loss. They provide immediate and noticeable results by:

  • Plumping thin lips
  • Filling out shallow contours
  • Removing shallow creases and softening wrinkles

Fillers offer immediate rejuvenation of your facial appearance with minimal downtime. Given their long-lasting effects, regular follow-up treatments make it easy to maintain a youthful look that inspires confidence all year.
