Facial volume loss can have a huge impact on the way we see ourselves. As we age, subtle changes in our facial structures become more apparent. For most people, aging means collagen reduction and sagging skin. Our cheeks deflate and deep wrinkles begin to show. At Wow Medi Spa, we have facial volume loss treatment options to help you feel beautiful.
WHAT IS FACIAL VOLUME LOSS?
This aesthetic concern is often shown in the form of hollow cheeks and thin lips. Facial tissue recession usually begins in one’s 30s. Suddenly, your face becomes thinner and its youthfulness is reduced. Over time our body produces less collagen and subcutaneous fat which in turn causes our skin to lose its elasticity and plumpness.
WHAT ARE THE ADDITIONAL CAUSES?
- Hormonal Changes: As our hormones deplete, the fat padding on our faces reduces in size. Hormone depletion may also affect the health of our bones, making them recede and flatten. This can shorten our jaws (creating jowls) and flatten our cheeks (creating that sallow, sunken look).
- Lifestyle/Environmental Causes: Smoking, UV damage, stress and pollution. All the aforementioned produce free radicals which break down collagen and elastin.
- Sudden Weight Fluctuations and Excessive Exercise: Dramatic weight loss and excessive exercise can be detrimental to the face, causing hormonal changes, inflammation, free radical formation and mechanical wear/tear, affecting the volume of our face.
HOW CAN YOU MINIMIZE FACIAL VOLUME LOSS?
- Avoid sudden weight fluctuations and excessive exercise
- Eat healthy
- Take supplements that support skin and boost collagen
- Wear sun protection
- Reduce stress
- Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke
- Consider hormone replacement therapy if necessary
- Use skin products and treatments that boost collagen and elastin
