As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid gradually diminishes. After 22, your body starts producing 1% less collagen every year. The gradual loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid eventually leads to sagging skin, excessive skin laxity, and the appearance of facial hollows in the midface regions. Midface hollows and undereye hollows can make you look gaunt and old. Our medical providers use cutting-edge aesthetic medicine solutions to restore the lost facial volume.
About Volume Loss
Dermal fillers are innovative cosmetic injections that add volume underneath facial tissues. With a few strategic injections into targeted areas on the face, we can restore lost facial volume and make you look younger. Depending on your unique cosmetic goals and concerns, we may recommend hyaluronic acid fillers or collagen-inducing fillers.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers are dermal fillers made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Versa, and Belotero. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring and biodegradable gel that makes your skin look soft, supple, and voluminous. When injected into targeted areas on your face, HA fillers provide instant volume enhancements, making your cheeks look fuller and younger.
Collagen-inducing fillers are dermal fillers made of specialized biocompatible components that stimulate natural collagen production, such as Radiesse and Sculptra. When injected into targeted facial tissues, these fillers encourage your body to produce new collagen fibers. They provide instant volume enhancements, but the final results appear over several weeks as new collagen fibers are formed.
PDO threads are surgical sutures made of polydioxanone, a biocompatible and biodegradable component that stimulates natural collagen production. If you have facial hollows and undereye hollows, the medical provider can insert smooth or barbed PDO threads underneath your facial skin. The PDO threads instantly lift your facial tissues, making your cheeks look fuller and more sculpted. Over time, the PDO threads are absorbed by the body while facilitating natural collagen production, so the results persist after the PDO dissolves.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is one of the most effective skin rejuvenation treatments for people with facial hollows. The medical provider makes thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface to activate the body’s natural healing and collagen production processes. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by stimulating collagen production, which, in turn, adds volume to your cheeks and other parts of the face. Microneedling produces cumulative results over multiple sessions.
