PROBLEM: VOLUME LOSS
Aging and weight loss can contribute to volume loss especially in the cheeks and lips. Age being the most common factor promotes volume loss as our skin loses collagen and hyaluronic acid the more we age.
When this naturally occurring antiaging defense being reduced over time, our skin begins to lose elasticity and firmness, which results in volume loss.
Cheeks can appear sunken or saggy and make you look older than you are while the lips can become small and take away from your overall facial aesthetic. Some volume loss may not be caused by aging, you may simply be looking contour or accentuate areas of your face. Augmenting the cheeks to make them appear fuller or adding volume to the lips can improve your overall facial aesthetic and balance out your features.
