As we age, our face loses the volume it once had. Laxity also increases, which can leave us looking less defined, tired and sunken. This is caused by our body’s reduction in collagen and elastin production which over the years, continues to decrease. Our natural stores of collagen and elastin can be further destroyed by things like sun exposure, smoking, poor diet, stress, and a number of other factors.
Restoring lost volume to our complexion requires filling the area to restructure and hydrate. This can either be done by stimulating our bodies to produce more collagen and elastin to fill in the gaps, or by using injectable filler.
