A loss of facial volume is an inevitable part of the ageing process. As skin matures, it produces less elastin and collagen, which are the main structural proteins in your skin and connective tissues. This causes the face to gradually lose its plumpness and for your skin to become less taut. When volume is lost in the face, cheeks may appear a little sunken and the skin can begin to sag, resulting in facial contours being less defined. That in turns leads to concerns such as jowls, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Fortunately, there are many products for restoring volume safely and naturally. The most common method is through the use of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and products such as Ellansé and Radiesse. These not only plump out your face again and give it a gentle, youthful lift, they also trigger the production of collagen and elastin for long-lasting benefits. Your face can look visibly more smooth and refreshed after these procedures.
