Facial Volume Loss Q & A

Why does the face lose volume as you get older?

As you get older, the thin layers of fat that lie underneath your facial features start to reduce. Plus, you produce less skin-strengthening compounds such as elastin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen, resulting in a loss of tautness and plumpness. Wrinkles and folds start to form and look prominent, and your skin may appear dryer and thinner, too.

Many areas of your face suffer from a loss of volume as you age. These include:

  • Cheeks
  • Brows
  • Lips

Sinking cheeks can cause nasolabial folds and jowls. Your face becomes more angular, rather than round and youthful. Your lips become thinner and lines around them intensify. Parentheses lines start to appear when your face is at rest as a result of lost hyaluronic acid and collagen.

How can my facial volume be restored?

Dermal fillers replace certain compounds and stimulate the production of others in your skin to create volume. Juvéderm®, for example, uses a natural ingredient called hyaluronic acid to plump up hollow cheeks and thinning lips. Sculptra® uses injected microspheres to add immediate volume, and as these dissolve, your natural collagen production gradually increases to restore lost volume. Sculptra stimulates the deepest levels of your skin to replump and rejuvenate your face.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Both Juvéderm and Sculptra are FDA approved for use in the United States. These fillers rarely cause side effects, and they effectively restore lost facial volume to bring back your youthful appearance. Results are subtle, but significant because you’ll still look like yourself, but better.

How long do the results of dermal fillers last?

You benefit from the volume-enhancing effects of dermal fillers for six months to more than two years. The exact amount of time the results last depends on the formula used and the area of your face treated. The team at Vitality MedAesthetics can help you understand what to expect and schedule retreatments when necessary.

Why seek medical professionals for dermal filler applications?

You’ll benefit from the expert application of dermal fillers by the providers. We understand how to balance your facial features so you look younger, but still like yourself. As professionals in aesthetic medicine, our intention is to boost your look, not change it entirely.
