Facial Volume Restoration
One of the key effects of ageing is that our faces lose volume. Volume is lost in many areas of the face as we get older. The areas that lose volume include; the cheeks, the brow, and the lips. As the cheeks sag and lose volume, they descend from their usual high position in the face near the eyes, to a lower position.
This leads to the formation of nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of the nose to the mouth), oral commissures (the folds just beneath the corners of the mouth), and then jowls ( the skin that sags beneath the jaw line).
Rejuvenation of these areas by adding volume can produce a very natural looking improvement in youthfulness. The most common method of replacing lost volume is with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers have been used for many years. There are a variety of dermal fillers currently in use.
