Facial volume loss manifests as part of normal aging when skin gradually loses its strength due to collagen and elastin breakdown and when supporting structures such as fat, muscle, and bone begin to decline and shift downwards. In addition, Genetics, hormonal changes, and environmental factors such as weight loss, stress, and sun exposure contribute to the decrease in facial volume and the consequent “tired, flattened” appearance. Nevertheless, several different measures can help restore lost volume and facial harmony.
- Replacing volume can be accomplished by strategically injecting gel-like substances called Dermal Fillers. There are many different filler brands. At Cataleya Aesthetics in San Jose, we use hyaluronic acid based fillers from established companies like Allergan (Juvederm, Voluma), Galderma (Restylane), and Revance (Redensity, RH2,3, and 4). Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Fillers can hydrate and plump lips, define cheekbones, lift sunken midface, and harmonize the chin. Each brand offers unique filler characteristics and can be matched to your needs and goals.
- It is essential not to ignore the integrity of the skin itself. Boosting collagen and elastin synthesis improves skin turgor and suppleness. This can be done by utilizing radiofrequency (Forma, Morpheus8, Inmode) and microneedling (CosmoPen) procedures as well as injectable skin biostimulators (Sculptra, Biorevitalization, Mesotherapy) that promote deep hydration, supply vitamins, and nutrients, and stimulate collagen generation.
- Having a stellar skincare routine and using Clinical Grade Skin Care will enhance the results of any procedure and maintain the overall health and appearance of your skin. At Cataleya Aesthetics, we love Sesderma (Spain), Epionce (USA), and Vivant (USA) skin care lines and will help you discover the right products for you.
