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
Instead of a facelift which requires invasive plastic surgery and lengthy recovery, we treat the underlying structure of the face using a collagen volumizer- Sculptra. Sculptra is a bio stimulator containing poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates cell growth. The product is injected into the deep dermis, working naturally to reenergize the collagen cells.
Sculptra begins to fill in the areas of the face that appear more hollow due to the natural loss of fat or muscle atrophy. Typical areas are cheeks, the upper temple region near the eyes and the delicate skin around the eyes. A fuller face of your former years returns along with healthy glowing skin.
