Facial Volume Loss and Skin Laxity

As we age, our faces naturally lose volume (or support) underneath the skin and gravity takes over– giving the appearance of aging and sagging skin. Volume loss is most prominent in the temples, cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial folds. The lips also tend to lose volume as we age.

Possible Treatments



Fillers are an injectable treatment that can be used to reshape and smooth the surface of aging skin, particularly nasolabial folds, lip lines, and drooping mouth corners. Dermal fillers can also be used to fill in areas that have lost volume, restoring a youthful fullness to your face and volume to your lips.


Silhouette Instalift

Silhouette Instalift is a non-surgical lift using collagen threads that can be used to re-contour the face and neck by lifting the deeper layers of the skin. This treatment can be used to improve volume loss and skin laxity.



Thermage and Ulthera are heat energy treatments that can be used to tighten and lift facial and body skin in patients of all skin types.
