Loss of Volume

One of the key effects of ageing is that our faces lose volume. To make the face look more youthful, adding volume becomes more important than just erasing wrinkles and fine lines. With age, the face looks more like a square while a youthful face resembles the shape of an upside-down triangle, the 'beauty triangle'

When we are young, our face is full and voluminous, without any wrinkles rather like a full balloon.

As we get age wrinkles and folds start forming rather like a deflated baloon.

The temples, cheeks, brows, smile lines and lips often reflect facial volume loss.

Mid Face Volume Loss

Below the eye area and on the cheek bones are full fat pads as we age these separate become thinner and slowly descend to the lower part of the face. During this process nose to mouth lines or naso labile lines form. These are a symptom of the mid face volume loss but can be treated with dermal fillers Restylane and Emervel volume.

Lower Face Volume Loss

Considerable fat loss and loss of the skins elasticity in the lower face results with oral commissures (the folds just beneath the corners of the mouth) and jowls (the skin that sags beneath the jaw line) forming. This area can be treated with dermal fillers Restylane and Emervel to replace the volume loss.

Lip Volume loss

The lips naturally lose volume over time restoring this loss sympathetically restores their natual sensual appearance.

Hand Volume Loss

Our hands are exposed to the environment and pigmented sun damage can be seen as age spots. Hands also age in a similar way to our faces: the skin loses elasticity, tone and thickness; hydration levels are less due to less HA Hyaluronic acid formulation. We also lose volume on the back of our hands replacing this volume restores a youthful balance to hand care.

Possible treatments are Restylane Skin Boosters, topical prescribed applications for sun damage, and skin tightening by the EndyMed 3 Deep RF.
