What are the causes of facial volume loss?
As with most aesthetic concerns, the aging process often leads to the loss of facial volume. Not only do our bodies produce less collagen (which gives skin its elasticity and plumpness), but we also lose subcutaneous fat as we grow older. A sudden loss of weight, smoking, and other poor lifestyle choices can also accentuate volume loss.
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. Genetics will also determine your lip size and shape.
How can Radiance Medical Spa help me?
If you would like to add or restore volume to your face, we recommend dermal fillers like the Juvéderm® family of products. Juvéderm® is an injectable treatment that uses hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally-occurring substance in the body. When injected into specific areas, fillers will replace lost facial volume and reshape the face for a more balanced look.
