Facial Volume Loss - The Sneaky Thing That Could Be Giving Away Your Age!

 

One fine morning you stare at your reflection in the mirror and wonder, “where did my face go?” You realize that something has changed. You wonder how your complexion looked and felt in your younger years. Your skin was plump and firm and it would quickly spring back when you pressed into it. But now that you are in your forties you’re probably noticing that your skin is losing its volume. Those apple cheeks are the first to go. Yes, your previously apple-like cheeks look sunken, your eyes appear deeper set, your lips tend to look thinner, your jawline looks less defined and your face looks less sculpted. And all these are visible signs that your face is losing volume!

But why and how does your skin lose that plumpness? It’s all about the triangle of beauty. A youthful face resembles the shape of an upside-down triangle. When you are young, the facial volume in your skin is evenly distributed. There is fullness in your face - you have smooth, round contours, high cheekbones and a chiseled jawline. As you age your face loses volume and that triangle of beauty flips upside down. This results in a wider, slacker jawline, flatter cheeks, and droopy mouth corners. But why does the triangle of beauty invert? Besides aging, the factors that lead to loss of facial volume are a decline in hormonal levels, inconsistent dieting, extreme exercising and excessive sun exposure. 

Do your cheeks look flatter and lips thinner? Do your temples appear sunken in? Does the area around your eye sockets look hollowed out?  No worries!  Fortunately, with the advances in dermatological innovations there are several options to help with facial volume loss. Injectable fillers are a best way to restore volume and fullness to your face. Want to find out more about facial volume restoration? Book a consultation now with S10 SafeCare skin experts who will assess your specific situation and recommend treatment options to help restore volume, plump and form to your skin.
