About Volume Loss

When you’re young, your skin looks voluminous and supple because of a high concentration of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and other components that add volume and structure to your facial skin. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid is compromised, leading to the loss of volume, gaunt cheeks, and deep tear troughs, making your skin look drawn and sad. Our cosmetic providers use cutting-edge dermal fillers and Sculptra injections to restore volume to your face and reverse the signs of aging, making you look younger and more vibrant.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume underneath facial tissues. They’re usually made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring gel that binds up to 1,000x its weight in water. Most signs of aging on the face, including volume loss, occur because of the age-related loss of hyaluronic acid from your skin. Dermal fillers reverse that process and restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels, making your skin look fuller and more youthful.

We can enhance facial volume using numerous dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvéderm, Versa, and RHA fillers. Each filler has unique consistencies, formulae, and properties that provide slightly different results, making them suitable for different individuals and treatment areas. Instead of offering a cookie-cutter treatment plan, our cosmetic providers carefully offer the ideal fillers for your specific facial anatomy and goals, ensuring naturalized results. The results are immediately visible after the treatment.


Sculptra is a cosmetic injection that encourages your body to produce its own filler material. Instead of adding external hyaluronic acid to the skin, Sculptra activates your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. It’s made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring component that adds volume to your skin and stimulates collagen production. Over time, it leads to natural volume enhancement in the targeted areas.

Collagen is a fibrous protein that holds your skin tissues upright against the force of gravity, acting as a sort of glue for your skin cells. The loss of collagen because of age is the primary reason for the loss of facial volume. Sculptra provides instant results by injecting poly-l-lactic acid under the skin, but the final results appear gradually over several months as your body produces new collagen fibers.
