This is characterized by hollowness under the eyes, on the cheeks, thinning lips, hollow jaw line or deep folds in the skin. A common problem with aging is the migration of the cheek fat pad down towards the mouth. Loss of elastic tissue in the skin, bone re-absorption and genetic factors contribute to this volume loss.
We have very effective, safe and relatively non-invasive techniques which greatly improve the cosmetic effects of volume loss. Injection of dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane can effectively improve the contour and shape of the affected area. Striking cosmetic improvement can be achieved around the eyes, cheeks, lips and jaw.
