Facial Volume Loss

Facial volume loss begins to occur as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers of the skin begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from sun exposure, frowning, smoking and smiling. As these changes are taking place, gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin and causing it to sag. The treatment of facial volume loss involves restoring volume with fillers such as liquid injectable silicone and Restylane, bringing back fullness and youth to the face.
