A major difference between a young face and an ageing face is often loss of volume. To the untrained eye, loss of volume can be difficult to put your finger on; the most common complaint from clients that are experiencing volume loss is that they’re looking tired or looking sad.
Often a very gradual change over the years, volume loss alters the structure and shape of the whole face.
When we’re young it’s common to have high cheekbones, a defined jawline and smooth, plump skin. These features create a face shape that is associated with a youthful appearance; wider at the top, tapering down to the narrowest point at the chin. As we age, a combination of physical changes such as the shrinkage of fat pads in the face, the loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid and thinning bone density mean the youthful face shape often becomes inverted. The result? A heavier lower face and jawline, flatter cheeks, thinner lips and sagging skin.
By replacing some of the lost facial volumes, usually around the mid and cheeks area you restore some of the youthful proportions of the face and can also achieve a lifting effect, including a softening of the jawline.
At The Skin to Love Clinic we can subtly restore your lost volume with a range of treatments. We also have effective treatments for lifting and firming the skin which can be used alone or in combination with volume restoring treatments.
If you would like to discuss restoring facial volume, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team who will happily arrange a consultation for you.
