Once we pass the magic age of 20, we can expect a variety of unwanted facial changes. One of these is facial volume loss, where the cheeks become sunken and the face is not as plump and youthful as it once appeared. If you are experiencing facial volume loss and it is making you feel that you look older than you should, we at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center have effective treatments to help.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
Why Am I Losing Facial Volume?
Facial volume loss is a natural consequence of aging. As you get older, your face has less collagen, subcutaneous fat, muscle, and bone. It is these substances that give your skin the elasticity, plumpness, and structure that are characteristic of youth. With the loss of volume our face goes from a youthful V shape, to an aging inverted V shape with sunken cheeks, increased nasolabial folds and jowls.
Facial Volume Loss Treatment Options
The best way to deal with facial volume loss is to replace lost collagen and stimulate the natural production of new collagen. One of the most common ways we do this is through the use of dermal fillers and PDO threads. Many fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance in the body that can restore the plump, youthful look that is so desirable in the skin. Other dermal fillers like Radiesse® and Sculptra® can build collagen over the whole face. PDO threads help to lift the face and produce collagen as the threads are being absorbed. At Behr Laser and Skin Care Center our facial volume restoration options may include:
- Belotero Balance®
- JUVÉDERM® fillers
- Mint PDO threads
- Radiesse® filler
- Restylane® filler
- RH® fillers
- Sculptra® filler
- Silhouette PDO Threads
- Voluma® filler
