The loss of facial volume can be considered complex. It occurs with age and can be accelerated by lifestyle choices, medication, stresses and trauma and extreme weight loss.
As we age, our hormones change affecting the quality of fat padding our face and bone density reducing our facial structure. As fat padding decreases, eyes and cheeks appear more hollow and jowls are more pronounced.
Environmental causes such as smoking, pollution, UV damage and stress further contribute to loss of facial volume by damaging collagen and elastin.
Yo-yo dieting, extreme weight loss and frequent high-impact exercise are also culprits of the loss of facial volume.
At Bodyvie, we can restore facial volume and increase collagen and elastin production to combat the signs of ageing.
The symptoms of facial volume lost or loose skin, thinner skin, more pronounced under eye circles, loss of definition around the jaws, and more sallow cheeks.
Facial volume loss can be slowed down by leading a healthy lifestyle with adequate nutrition, avoid extreme or rapid weight gain and weight loss, not smoking, avoiding unneccessary sun exposure, applying SPF50 daily and consuming a collagen supplement.
