Volume loss occurs when there is the breakdown of proteins, such as collagen and elastin, under the skin. This leaves us with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hollows, and drooping. While it cannot be fully reversed, there are many treatments that can help build up the lost volume including fillers, PRP, micro-needling, and more.
Who experiences facial volume loss?
Facial volume loss is a part of aging that everyone experiences. People begin noticing volume loss around the age of 30 to 35 when facial fat pads begin to disappear causing signs of aging such as under-eye shadows, tired look, and nasolabial folds. These changes become more rapid when a person reaches their 50s and 60s. The more rapid decline is due to significant loss of collagen and elastin along with diminished fat pads in the face.
