Facial Volume Loss – How to Reverse
Facial Volume Loss is the loss of underlying elements in the face including blood vessels, fat layers, and collagen. The skin begins to fall as the supporting layer deteriorates with age.

What Are the Causes of Facial Volume Loss?
Although Facial Volume Loss is caused mostly by the loss of facial elasticity due to age, volume loss can also occur sooner as a result of:
- Severe weight loss
- Regular sun exposure
- Extreme illness
Facial volume loss is a very common problem as we get older. We lose some of the fat padding in our faces that contributes to a youthful appearance gradually over time with some people loser more quicker than others. Rather than radical surgery there are simple non-surgical methods to correct this facial volume loss with very low risk and no downtime. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm can make a huge improvement in facial volume with immediate results that normally last at least one years although individual patient results will vary. These HA fillers are also completely reversible should we ever wish to remove it or decrease the amount injected. This is the beauty of HA fillers compared to permanent fillers which cannot be removed and are rarely used anymore. Dr. Crippen favours the Juvederm family of products which include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Volbella. In order to determine which filler is right for you, book your consultation with Dr. Crippen to have a professional MD assessment. You deserve to look your best and with these new fillers on the market, you can keep age at bay for the time being.
