FACTS ABOUT FACIAL VOLUME LOSS

We all have varying degrees of fullness in our faces, which can be depleted for different reasons. Aging is the number one reason we lose facial volume. Weight loss will also cause you to lose volume in your face, making it look hollow, older and more wrinkled. Excessive sun exposure can also cause facial volume loss because it accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. When these break down, fat loss can be accentuated and the face can appear gaunt. Hormones are another contributing factor to the breakdown of facial volume. Estrogen levels decrease with age and cause fat to thin, often making the skin droop or sag. Additional factors that can deplete facial volume are a decrease of hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin. Both of these elements create the plump, dewy look we associate with a youthful face.

REVERSING FACIAL VOLUME LOSS

At Kwan Dermatology, we offer a variety of safe, non-invasive procedures to help replenish your facial volume and restore youthful plumpness to your face. Some of the most popular techniques for restoring facial volume are injectable fillers such as radiesse, juvederm and restylane. These can be used to re-plump cheekbones, fill hollowing in the eye area, marionette lines that extend down from the nose, restore thinning lips and loss of volume around the chin that causes a pucker of skin that extends down from the corners of the mouth.

LOOK YOUNG, FEEL YOUNG.

Having fun and enjoying life is always encouraged at Kwan Dermatology, and facial volume loss doesn’t have to be the end result. There are ways to slow the loss of facial volume that you can implement at home to see some improvement. One non-invasive option is a product called, KWENCH Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This serum stimulates collagen production and can restore some of the skin’s moisture and plumpness.

ADD VOLUME, REMOVE YEARS.

If you want to restore youthful plumpness to your face, Kwan Dermatology can help revive your skin by replenishing hyaluronic acid and boosting collagen production. We offer a variety of skin boosting products and volumizing injectable solutions.

FACIAL VOLUME LOSS REVERSING TECHNOLOGY

While there are several ways to maintain facial volume in your daily life, such as eating a balanced diet, drinking adequate amounts of water and keeping a healthy weight, Kwan Dermatology offers treatment options that restore skin volume quickly, painlessly and with no downtime.


Injectable fillers are one of most popular procedures available today because they are extremely effective, safe and more natural looking and less expensive than surgery. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse are the best fillers for areas like the cheekbones, lips and nasolabial folds. These fillers are Hyaluronic acid based, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. If you’d like to discuss restoring facial volume, please contact us to schedule a consultation.
