Volume loss in your skin? Dermal Fillers may be right for you

Posted on January 25, 2020

One of the most common signs of aging is volume loss. There are different ways volume loss manifests itself in the face. Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging cheeks, and thinning lips are all signs of facial volume loss. There are many cosmetic treatments available to combat these aging signs and restore volume. Our team at the Center for Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine offers various treatments to help our patients regain their youthful skin.

What is Volume Loss?

Volume loss occurs with age when our bodies stop producing the same levels of both collagen and hyaluronic acid. These basic structures in our skin help to retain moisture, elastin, and volume. When a face begins to lose volume, the skin begins to show aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines. Volume loss can contribute to additional changes in your appearance such as hollow under eyes, flattened cheeks, sunken temples, and reduced lip size. The main areas affected by facial volume loss are:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw
  • Forehead
  • Temples
  • Under the eyes

What Else Causes Volume Loss?

Although aging is the number one reason we lose volume in our faces, there are other contributing factors:

  • Stress
  • Genetics
  • Lifestyle
  • Weight loss
  • Smoking
  • Sun Exposure
  • Some Medications

Treatments for Facial Volume Loss

Our team of specialists at CDAM provides a variety of advanced cosmetic treatments for combatting facial volume loss. We can help to improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and other concerns caused by aging or other factors. Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical form of treatment. These fillers can plump up the skin, smooth out wrinkles, and lift sagging skin. They can also help to re-contour the face to achieve desired results. Dermal fillers create lasting results because they are formulated to stimulate the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.

In Chicago, we offer these various dermal filler treatments to help combat facial volume loss.
