As you age, you may start to notice that your skin doesn’t have the same vibrancy and elasticity that it used to when you were a teenager. Actually, you could start experiencing facial volume loss as early as your 20s. As your skin loses collagen and facial fat, you can develop crows feet, smile lines, sunken temples, and more. However, you don’t have to be stuck with dull skin or go under the knife to improve your facial features. There are plenty of non-surgical ways to combat facial volume loss.
This treatment is used to combat facial volume loss by replacing the hyaluronic acid that gives our skin its fullness and hydration. When injected properly, Restylane can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for up to eight months.
The older we get, the thinner our lips get and the more smile lines we develop. Restylane Silk is designed to smooth fine lines around the mouth and give you fuller lips for up to six months.
During the aging process, the fat in your skin starts to decrease, leaving you with deep wrinkles, sagging skin, and overall volume loss. Restylane Lift gives you fuller cheeks, as well as corrects facial contours for up to 12 months.
The newest member of the Restylane family, Refyne is designed to treat nasolabial folds — the lines that develop from the side of your nose to your mouth. When injected properly it can soften those lines for up to 12 months.
Those lines that run from the side of your nose to your mouth and from your mouth to your chin get even deeper and more prominent as your get further into the aging process. Defyne improves the appearance of those lines while maintaining a natural look.
A relatively new product in the Juvederm line, Volbella is a hyaluronic filler used to improve vertical lip lines and give you fuller lips.
As the collagen in your face breaks down, you will start to develop forehead lines, worry lines that look like the number 11 between your eyes, and crow’s feet around your eyes caused by repetitive facial movements. Dysport is a neuromuscular blocker that inhibits these facial movements and prevents lines from forming to begin with.
The type of treatment you choose to combat facial volume loss will depend on many factors. The professionals at Kessel Dermatology can help you determine which treatment is best for you. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at 609-890-2600.
