What causes volume loss?
A common effect of ageing is bone loss and shrinking facial fat pads, which cause a lack of facial structure and decreased support of the surface skin tissue. Along with this, our skin becomes thinner as we get older and begins to lose its elasticity. These effects in combination can cause facial hollows and sagging, which contributes to a worn or aged appearance.
Facial volume loss has many causes. While ageing is often the predominant factor, other causes can include, weight loss, hormonal changes, sun exposure, and smoking. The skin becomes looser and once rounded features become more taut and angular. Volume restoration treatments reverse these effects to create a smoother and more aesthetically pleasing look.
About this treatment
Volume restoration benefits
Dermal fillers for volume restoration aim to replace lost volume due to ageing or weight loss. The procedure lifts and smooths the skin while restoring youthful facial contours, helping patients gain better confidence in their outward image.
The injectable treatment can be applied to the lips, cheeks, mid-face, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, and lower face. It has immediate and lasting effects on the skin and facial contours. Additionally, dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which attracts water and helps increase collagen and elastin. People may seek this procedure to:
- Fill facial hollows and creases
- Reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds
- Lift sagging facial skin and jowls
- Restore lost volume due to ageing
- Smooth lines and wrinkles
- Improve patient self-confidence
Results are immediate and last several months. Filler treatments can help you maintain smoother and fuller facial features without invasive surgery and extensive downtime.
Your private consultation
Private consultations take place before your treatment session. This is to ensure you are suitable for the procedure and speak about your current volume-loss concerns and goals. Our qualified and friendly staff at The Skin Boutique will talk you through the process and outline which options would best suit your aesthetic needs. We will then be able to construct a treatment plan.
During your consultation, we will need to talk about past procedures, medical conditions, and any medications you are taking. This will help us determine whether you are a good fit for the treatment. In general, good candidates are people who are physically healthy, non-smokers, and at a healthy and stable weight. Once we have discussed all the relevant factors, we can schedule your treatment and give you instructions on how to prepare.
How it works
Volume restoration procedures involve injecting a type of dermal filler beneath the skin to produce the desired volumised aesthetic. This can be done with anaesthetic to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
The filler contains hyaluronic acid, which is a water-binding substance found naturally in the human body. Your clinician will administer small amounts of the substance using a needle, targeting your particular areas of concern. Since every patient is different, your treatment will be specially tailored to you and your body, smoothing creases, filling hollows, and smoothing out the skin.
The treatment produces immediate facial fullness, but it may take some time to see the full results. Once the filler has settled into its new position under your skin, the effects will generally last for upwards of six months.
Volume restoration is a low-risk, minimally invasive treatment, which means most patients do not require downtime. However, this can depend on your body’s response to treatment and the extent of your procedure. Your clinician will give you instructions, particular to your individual case, so that you can enjoy the best results possible. You may need to:
- Use cold compresses to relieve swelling
- Avoid harsh skincare products
- Do not undergo facial treatments and peels
- Avoid alcohol and smoking
- Avoid sun and heat exposure
- Stay hydrated
- Eat a healthy and balanced diet
Patients may have some swelling and light bruising around their injection sites, but this is usually mild. Any side effects should fade within a couple of days. Be sure to contact our clinic if you experience any severe or prolonged side effects.
