Facial Volume Loss Treatments and Causes
Table of Contents
As we age, the hyaluronic acid in the skin depletes, our hormones change and the production of collagen and elastin dissipate. As a result, our face loses volume, causing wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin to occur. Our skin can even lose it’s radiance, that glowy shine we had in our youth disappearing forever.
But don’t fear, you don’t have to settle for skin that looks years older than your actual age. Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we can provide you with several treatments that are designed to help with your facial volume loss and make you look young once again.
Keep reading to learn more about the reasons behind ageing skin and why it causes facial volume loss, as well as the fantastic treatments we have that can bring your skin back to life.
The Causes of Facial Volume Loss
A change in hormones can significantly affect our skin and the quality of our fatty tissues. As our hormone levels decrease with age, weight fluctuation or even medication, the fat padding on our face can change and reduce, too. This causes our faces to thin and look older from the promotion of wrinkles and fine lines. Thinning of the face can also happen from extreme dieting and excessive exercise as these usually equal weight loss, as well as negative hormonal changes and free radical formation.
The environment can also impact the breakdown of the collagen and elastin within our bodies. When we are exposed to UV damage, stress, pollution and even smoking, collagen and elastin production decrease, causing sagging skin, wrinkles and facial volume loss.
So what can you do to bring volume back into your face and rejuvenate the way your skin feels and looks? Here are some of the top aesthetic treatments we have to offer at Aesthetics of Liverpool:
MINT Super Thread Lift
The MINT Super Thread Lift is the strongest and most dramatic lift available in the world. The use of barbed threads allows the treatment to have a 3-dimensional lifting effect, helping your skin look young, plump and toned again. These specially designed threads allow for the most natural and defining results possible, also kick-starting the body’s natural healing processes when injected. These processes trigger the production of collagen, which supports the structure of the skin and brings volume back to one’s appearance, plumping the skin while improving its elasticity.
The Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
This treatment is sometimes known as micro-needling as it uses a specialised titanium device that is rolled across the skin to create thousands of micro-injuries (painlessly) which triggers the skin’s healing process. The healing process then stimulates collagen, elastin and new tissue production which instantly improves the skin’s texture to leave the skin looking fresh and young. Collagen also supports the structure of the skin, meaning an increased production of collagen can help bring volume back to the face, giving a plump and firm appearance. It’s so amazing that even A-List star Jennifer Aniston is a top fan of this treatment. Here’s all you need to know about CIT.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment which softens fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin appear smoother. They are extremely popular in the aesthetic industry as they can add volume to the face, creating a contoured aesthetic. The injections are a solution of hyaluronic acid, a natural component already found in the body. Learn more about Dermal Fillers here.
