Facial Volume Loss

Loss of facial volume is a natural aging process that occurs due to a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that give the skin elasticity and firmness and help it recover from stretching.

Unlike loss of density or wrinkles, this process changes a person's overall appearance, which in turn can give the wrong impression of their mood or inner state.

Whether you are looking for facial volume rejuvenation or correction of age-related volume loss, Med Spa Bella Sana is ready to help you find beauty and confidence.

Signs of loss of facial volume

This pathology is often accompanied by a number of characteristic signs.

  • Facial contour loss is a condition in which the natural contours and shapes of the face become less defined and less expressive. This process is associated with a loss of volume and elasticity in various areas of the face. Loss of relief can give the face a less youthful and more tired appearance.
  • Normally, young skin has certain protrusions and depressions that create contrast and build up into characteristic facial features. However, with aging, the reduction of collagen and elastin in the skin, and other factors, contours can become less pronounced.
  • This manifests itself, for example, in a loss of volume in the cheekbones, which makes the cheekbones less prominent, or a loss of definition in the chin and lower face, which can give a softer and less defined appearance. Loss of clear contours can also include the appearance of wrinkles and folds, which adds to the aging process.

Causes of loss of facial volume

The condition of a droopy face can be provoked by both internal and external factors, such as:

  • natural aging - a decrease in the amount of collagen and elastin as we age;
  • fluctuations in hormone levels in the body;
  •  constant tension and activity of certain facial muscles (e.g. mimicry);
  • emotional stress and lack of sleep;
  • loss of fatty tissue in the face as we age;
  • gravitational forces can cause tissue sagging in the lower face;
  • cigarette use impairs blood circulation and accelerates skin aging;
  •  ultraviolet radiation, which breaks down collagen and elastin in the skin;
  • unbalanced diet;
  • genetic factors.

Given these reasons, it is important to seek professional help in time and use available treatments to maintain volume and elasticity of the facial skin.


Treatment methods for facial volume loss

Med Spa Bella Sana offers a range of effective non-surgical treatments to treat facial volume loss and restore the skin's natural youthfulness.

Juvederm Volbella XC

This is one of the products in the Juvederm range of fillers designed to correct and improve appearance. The procedure involves injections of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of the skin, giving it elasticity and allowing it to restore volume where it has been lost, reduce wrinkles and restore youthfulness to the face.

  • The cosmetologist uses a fine needle or cannula to inject the filler into the selected area. The hyaluronic acid in the filler attracts and retains moisture, which adds volume and moisturizes the skin. Volbella XC also contains a topical anesthetic, making the procedure more comfortable.
  • After the injection, the beautician carefully models the filler, distributing it evenly, achieving the desired effect. A light massage may be performed to evenly distribute the filler.

The result is usually visible immediately after the treatment. The treatment area becomes more voluminous, soft and moisturized. It looks younger and smoother. The effect lasts from 9 to 12 months, after which the procedure can be repeated.



Laser Genesis

The laser genesis procedure is known as laser collagen stimulation. It is used to restore facial volume and improve facial firmness and texture.

  • Before the session begins, the skin is cleansed and a local anesthetic or anesthesia may be applied to reduce discomfort.
  • During the procedure, the cosmetologist uses a laser device that emits light pulses of a certain wavelength.
  • By penetrating the deep layers of the dermis, the pulses have a stimulating effect on fibroblasts (cells responsible for collagen production). This process is called collagen regeneration.
  • Under the influence of laser light, fibroblasts begin to actively produce new collagen, improving skin elasticity and texture.

Patients may notice improvement over time. Several sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. The effects of laser genesis can last for several months to a year or more, depending on individual skin characteristics and response.

It is important to remember that the results of any procedure can vary depending on the individual patient and their desired goals. A consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon to discuss a suitable treatment plan is recommended before undergoing the procedure.
