It’s fair to say that most women dread aging more than just about anything— giving birth included. As you age, your skin starts to lose volume and elasticity— leaving you with fine lines, wrinkles, and a more sallow appearance. So, what exactly happens to your skin that makes you lose volume and how can it be treated? Read on to learn more.
How Does Your Skin Lose Volume?
Volume loss can make you feel like your self-esteem, and your skin is literally deflating. Causing atrophy, a loss of contours and facial hollowing, a loss of volume and fatty tissue are something that everyone dreads, but nobody can escape. Additionally, as you age, your bone thickness decreases which also contributes to a more hollowed look.
How Can It Be Treated?
Dr. George Philip Smith has a variety of treatment options that can help temporarily restore volume to your face including Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. By filling in the contours around the cheeks, fillers work to temporarily plump up the skin— leaving you with a more youthful looking appearance. Additionally, fillers can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth— a win, win for all of our patients. Lasting the upwards of a year, fillers like Juvederm last longer than other injectables.
