Most women struggle to keep their hair voluminous as they age, but volume problems extend beyond the scalp. Age-related facial volume loss is one of the most common complaints among women as they greet their 40th and 50th birthdays. Whether that volume is lost in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, or commissures, it is frustrating and undesirable. Thanks to the advent of dermal fillers, you no longer need to accept volume loss as an unnegotiable effect of aging.
Different Reasons for Volume Loss
Hormonal changes and receding bones work in tandem to generate the facial volume loss you’re noticing in the mirror. Hormone changes are inevitable as estrogen dips and important elements like collagen and elastin stop being produced in high amounts. Slowly but surely, the skin starts to sink as its foundation fades away. Receding bones add to this undesirable equation by causing loss of bone mass that can create a sunken look in the cheeks.
Sun exposure only makes this worse because it accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin while also damaging the surface layer of your skin to make it look older. Juvederm Voluma XC and Radiesse are two of the most trusted dermal fillers to reverse the volume loss effect and help you feel years younger.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC helps to reverse age-related midface volume loss with an injection of hyaluronic acid that is very tightly cross-linked to restore volume and plumpness once it is injected into your skin. Results are visible instantly and only get better with time. This incredible injection can remain viable for two years, so you can enjoy your new, youthful appearance for a long time before returning for a touch-up treatment.
Radiesse distinguishes itself from other fillers by providing 50 percent more volume and lasting up to 18 months. Rather than the hyaluronic acid used in Juvederm, Radiesse provides an injection of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) which generates volume in the skin while still helping the body form its own natural collagen. This new collagen encourages beautiful, supple skin as the body essentially heals itself over time.
If facial volume loss has you feeling older than you are, these dermal fillers are your answer!
