Volume loss is one of the earliest signs of aging. Signs of volume loss begin in our 30’s when our faces begin to lose that youthful fullness; eyes begin to look sunken and tired and the skin beneath them form bags which don’t disappear with a good night’s sleep. Lines deepen between the mouth and nose, lips thin and cheeks become hollow. These changes are the result of a loss of support beneath the skin including elastic tissue, collagen and – surprisingly – fat! It’s a natural part of the aging process, but can be accelerated by sun exposure, stress and lifestyle habits such as smoking.
HOW WE TREAT IT
In the past, major surgery was the only effective way to treat volume loss, but today there are a number of safe and effective treatment options to restore and maintain youthful contours. Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid like Juvederm®,Restylane® or Emervel® on their own or combined with Botox® can provide significant and immediate improvement. Regular maintenance with laser treatments like IPL or Laser Genesis can help to maintain results by stimulating collagen production. Dr. Muhn and Dr. Rosen are experts when it comes to volume restoration and can recommend a treatment plan suited to your specific needs and concerns.
