What Causes Facial Volume Loss?

The biggest cause of facial volume loss is – you guessed it – aging.

As we get old, facial fat tends to break down, causing a variety of issues like hollow cheeks, under eye bags, and more. What’s more, gravity works to pull that broken-up facial fat in a downward motion, meaning a lot of fat loss ends up around the neck and jawline.

Fortunately, facial volume loss can be treated with a variety of innovative procedures, injections, and more. Let’s take a look at a few of those facial volume loss treatments now!

Treatments That Can Erase Facial Volume Loss

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that helps plump up sagging skin. Think of dermal fillers as natural scaffolding that can be placed under skin that’s starting to lose volume as a result of fat loss. What’s more, the plumping effect helps smooth away deep lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.

Non-surgical cheek lift

A cheek lift is a natural, global approach to Facial Rejuvenation rather than “chasing smile lines.” The smile lines appear deeper when there is the descent of the cheek area which puts pressure on the skin below and creates a “fold.” Lifting the cheeks laterally, we can reduce the appearance of the smile folds as well as lift up the sagging under-eye hollow.

Jawline enhancement

Jawline enhancement is an innovative treatment that uses the power of dermal fillers to provide a non-surgical face shaping experience. At Yaletown Laser Centre, we use Restylane® fillers to carefully sculpt and tweak the shape of your jawline to achieve your desired results. 

Jawline enhancement is an excellent choice for patients who have lost their facial profile as a result of sagging skin around the jawline.

Lip injections

Fat loss can happen with the lips as well. That’s why, if you’re noticing lip thinning, you may be a good candidate for lip injections. Hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by our bodies is the main ingredient in many lip fillers and injections and is broken down naturally by our bodies over time, which makes it a safe option for many people who want to counteract fat loss in the lips.
