Lack of facial volume refers to a condition in which a person’s face appears to have lost some of its fullness as a result of a decline in the amount of fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid production that supports the skin and underlying tissues.
This can be characterised by a sunken or hollow appearance, particularly in areas such as the cheeks, temples, and under the eyes.
As we age, the skin naturally loses collagen and elasticity and the underlying fat and bone structure of the face also begins to deteriorate, leading to a loss of volume and a sunken appearance. Additionally, prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can contribute to the degradation of collagen and elastin, resulting in futher loss of facial volume.
Some people may also be genetically predisposed to a loss of facial volume, regardless of their age or lifestyle. Others can lose facial volume from a significant weight loss, as the fat that supports the face is also lost.
Overall, a combination of factors can contribute to a loss of facial volume, and the best approach to addressing it may depend on the underlying cause.
Loss of facial volume can be addressed through cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers to fill in sunken areas such as the eyes or cheeks and designed to restore volume to the face and create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
