As you age, volume loss in the face becomes unavoidable. This can result in deep creases, wrinkles and hollowing lending to a more aged appearance and impacting how comfortable you feel in your own skin. When volume loss causes deeper feelings of dissatisfaction, looking at corrective options becomes a more pressing issue. The experienced cosmetic doctors and dermatologists at JUVA Skin & Laser Center are pleased to offer a wide range of treatment options for volume loss and welcome an opportunity to meet with you and assess your facial skin, and to help you choose the treatment that is exactly right for your needs.
Causes of Volume Loss
The process of aging is responsible for much of the volume loss that occurs after the age of 30. Genetics plays a significant role in the extent and depth of wrinkling that results in age-related volume loss, but so too do lifestyle choices including:
- Excessive sun exposure
- Smoking and tobacco use
- Extreme exercise
- Yo-Yo Dieting
Your production of collagen and hyaluronic acid – both essential for a youthful appearance – will naturally decrease as you age, resulting in some volume loss. These factors can combine with hormonal changes, natural fat loss, and lifestyle choices to produce more significant wrinkling and creasing of the skin. When volume loss creates a look you feel uncomfortable with, our New York dermatologists are here to help. We work individually with each patient to find the exact solution that will address a loss of volume are restore a soft, smooth, and wrinkle-free appearance.
Addressing Volume Loss
The most effective way to treat volume loss is with dermal fillers. Our dermatologists offer a complete range of injectable fillers that can work alone or in combination to restore lost hyaluronic acid, stimulate collagen growth, and restore a fuller and more youthful appearance.
The type of dermal filler best suited to address your specific volume loss will, like the cause of your wrinkles, be specific to you. During your initial consultation we will take the time necessary to understand your desires while fully assessing your volume loss – and we will customize your treatment options to ensure you are provided with the safest, longest-lasting, and most effective solution.
Dermal fillers available at our Manhattan and Woodside offices include:
- Restylane (Refyne, Defyne, Silk, and Lyft)
- Juvéderm (Voluma and Volbella)
- Belotero Balance
Some of these fillers are specifically designed to address volume loss underneath the eyes. Others may prove more effective for hollow cheeks, smile and laugh lines, or lip augmentation. We can use fillers individually to address single concerns or in combination for a liquid facelift, a nonsurgical procedure that addresses visible signs of aging such as skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines throughout the face. Your desires and the quality of your skin will determine which of these options will best be able to produce the look of your dreams.
