Loss Of Facial Volume: Plump Cheeks and Firm Skin
As we age, sometimes our cheeks and other areas of our face may appear hollow in appearance. The fat pads found in these areas have decreased in size due to the loss of collagen.The skin around areas of the face may appear loose and a little saggy. The muscles and ligaments are also aging and changing which give a slightly different appearance to the face.
The older we get, the less collagen we produce. Collagen is a protein that supports the body’s soft tissue. As collagen degrades with time, the appearance of youth goes with it. Additionally, skeletal changes develop through the years and cause a loss of bone density. This is the one place you want to keep the fat! Without the fat in your face, your skin has minimal structure, creating a sagging or melting appearance. Other factors for facial volume loss due to dehydration and collagen production are emotional stress, traumas, lifestyle factors, nutrition and certain medications which accelerate the process.
How we treat it
Facial Volume is treated with Dermal Fillers. The best way to restore lost volume and lift your entire face is to replace the lost volume in your cheeks and midface area with a filler. We can even create higher cheekbones that make you look elegant with just a few injections. By adding volume to your midface and cheeks, we lift up everything that falls below it.
Scarlet RF Microneedling
Microneedling has been around since 1995. It is one of the best treatments to stimulate collagen growth. Recently, a new version of this treatment has been designed, Scarlet RF, which covers a broader and deeper penetration of the dermis, and creates a more effective treatment. It boosts collagen and elastin production quicker than other forms with no downtime to the procedure.
Microneedling W/HA or PRP
A popular service offered at Mad Peaches, micro-needling yields great results in minimizing pores, refining texture of the skin, lightening pigmentation and reducing tissue scarring. 12 tiny needles use pin-point punctures which induce greater collagen growth, resulting in a smoother, more glowing complexion. A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended and is ideal for any skin type.
This laser puts small holes into the skin to break up pigmentation. It can be thought of as aerating your skin, which allows the melanin to escape from the vessel. ProFractional is typically used in conjunction with hydroquinone for the span of the treatments. This is an ideal option for patients with melasma or scars.
