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.
