Facial Volume Loss

As we age, our skin’s collagen and elastin begin to decrease due to ageing, can lead to a loss of volume in the face in some key areas such as the cheekbones, the under-eye area, and cheeks. It can also make certain areas look heavier, such as the jowls and neck, which can lead to sagging skin and may sometimes alter the structure and shape of our whole face. Loss of volume in cheeks and the face, especially when paired with increased fat pads lower in the face and neck, is a common factor of ageing.

At Salon Savant in Kings Cross, London, we have developed several treatments to reduce signs of ageing and address volume loss in the midface area, neck and décolletage. Our skin experts are passionate about helping our clients rejuvenate their facial features and provide a more youthful appearance. Whilst age catches up with all of us and your face losing volume is to be expected, we believe you can still look your best. Book a consultation today and our therapists will provide plenty of expert advice and treatment options for you. 

What Causes the Loss of Volume in Cheeks & Face?

The three main causes of loss of volume in face and cheeks are from hormonal changes, environmental factors, and extreme diet and exercise. Everybody experiences different reasons for their face losing volume as it is a natural part of the ageing process, but diet and lifestyle are big factors in determining the effect on your skin. The loss of definition and shape from youthful high cheekbones and plump skin is affected by:

  • Hormonal changes such as those experienced during pregnancy
  • Environmental factors such as smoking, UV damage, stress, and pollution. All of these produce harmful free radicals, which break down collagen and elastin, reducing the “Biological Velcro” that holds our skin tissues up, preventing gravitational descent.
  • Weight loss and extreme dieting
  • Sun exposure
  • Loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid
  • Thinning bone density

Whilst all of these causes aren’t guaranteed to cause midface volume loss, they can accelerate the process, leading to a quicker decline of the youthful facial proportions that many of us want to maintain for longer.

How to Prevent Midface Volume Loss

The good news is, there are many things you can do to prevent the loss of volume in the cheeks and your face, not all involving heavy lifestyle changes:

  • Avoid yo-yo diets and excessive exercise
  • Eat healthily to maintain a healthy weight and happy hormones
  • Take supplements to support your skin and boost collagen production
  • Practice sun safety and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen daily
  • Reducing stress
  • Quit smoking and reduce any exposure to secondary smoke
  • Improve your skin and tissue quality (i.e. boost collagen and elastin) through skin products and treatments

How We Can Help With Volume Loss

With the help of our specialised Doctor, we can design specific programs to address the loss of volume in face. We only use gold-standard products and treatments to help improve feature definition to restore a youthful volume and bring balance to the face.

We have multiple treatment options to treat loss of volume in face and cheeks:

Injectables are used to temporarily replace volume, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and give instant, short-term results. Usually used on the cheeks, temples and lips or under the eyes. 
  • Profhilo – to boost the skins own production of collagen, refining and hydrating the skin.
  • Volite HA Boost – using Dermal Fillers with Hyaluronic acid to boost the skin and encourage rejuvenation of lost volume in face over time.
  • Fractional Microneedling RF – where tiny needles are rolled across the epidermis to encourage new collagen production.
