Facial Volume Loss
Once we pass the magic age of 20, we can expect a variety of unwanted facial changes. One of these is facial volume loss, where the cheeks become sunken and the face is not as plump and youthful as it once appeared. If you are experiencing facial volume loss and it is making you feel that you look older than you should, we at Graceful Wellness have effective treatments to help.
Why Am I Losing Facial Volume?
Facial volume loss is a natural consequence of aging. As you get older, your face has less collagen, subcutaneous fat, muscle, and bone. It is these substances that give your skin the elasticity, plumpness, and structure that are characteristic of youth. With the loss of volume our face goes from a youthful V shape, to an aging inverted V shape with sunken cheeks, increased nasolabial folds and jowls.
Facial Volume Loss Treatment Options
The best way to deal with facial volume loss is to replace lost collagen and stimulate the natural production of new collagen. One of the most common ways we do this is through the use of dermal fillers. Many fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance in the body that can restore the plump, youthful look that is so desirable in the skin. At Graceful Wellness we offer JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers to help you restore your lost volume and collagen.
How Can JUVÉDERM® Help?
Our JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers include a mix of lidocaine and natural hyaluronic acid to restore your volume while minimizing any discomfort you may feel. The added anesthetic included in the compound will make your session very tolerable. Most of our procedures take about 15 minutes to perform, but this time may vary based on your specific needs. The best part of choosing this specific dermal filler brand is that it is known to provide understated, natural-looking results.
