It is easy to tell when the aging process affects your appearance. What you may not know is exactly how and why these aesthetic issues occur. Understanding how aging robs you of your natural beauty will make it easier to know how to treat the issue and preserve the youthful beauty of your face.

One of the most common issues that occurs as a result of aging is facial-volume loss. A good way to visualize the importance of facial volume is by thinking about your cheeks.

Younger people have cheeks with a fuller appearance. Full cheeks enhance the natural contours of the face. Now imagine cheeks that are slowly starting to deflate. Over time, the skin will start to wrinkle and fold. The contours of the cheeks will slowly be lost, and eventually, the cheeks may take on a hollow appearance.

Facial-volume loss doesn’t just affect the cheeks. It can lead to the formation of jowls, hollow undereye areas, and a number of other aesthetic issues. The only way to address the issue and restore the youthfulness of your appearance is by restoring lost facial volume.

Dermal fillers are special injectable products designed to address lost facial volume. Dermal fillers typically come in the form of thick gels that fill in the areas where they are injected.

These products are also designed to provide a number of other benefits to the skin for long-lasting results. Dermal fillers provide the skin with nutrients and help the skin retain moisture. They can also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to strengthen and tighten the skin.
