Loss of facial volume is one of the main reasons people look older than necessary. Around the age of 20, the body’s production of collagen and elastin begins to slow down. The skin’s underlying structure breaks down, and the fat pads in the face begin to slide down. We begin to see the effects of gravity in areas of the face such as the jowls, chin, and necks. This can also lead to the accumulation of fat under the chin, also known as a double chin.
Dermal fillers can help address volume loss in the cheeks. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body, to attract moisture and improve the skin’s appearance.
