Facial Volume Loss
Facial volume loss is a natural, although not always welcome, part of aging. As time goes on, the skin loses collagen and elastin, causing the skin to lose its firmness and start to sag. When the cheeks lose their volume, nasolabial folds form. These creases between the nose and mouth are often the first visible sign of facial volume loss. Continued loss of facial volume gives the face more of a square shape.
The loss of facial volume is not always caused by aging. Genetics plays a major role in when and how the skin will age. Genetic makeup will determine if volume loss begins at age 30 or age 50. Other factors that can cause a face to lose its natural fullness are over-exposure to the sun, smoking, significant weight loss and severe illness. Skin damage caused by the sun is preventable by simply wearing sunscreen consistently. Premature skin aging is just one of the many negative effects that smoking has on the body. Facial volume loss caused by weight loss or illness may not be preventable, but it can be treatable. Dr. Zizmor can suggest the best treatment option for restoring youthful volume to the face.
