Facial volume loss overview
Facial volume loss is usually noticeable in the form of hollow/sunken cheeks or temples and thin lips. It can often give off a grim appearance and make both women and men feel self-conscious. Over time, hollow cheeks appear to recede inward into the facial bones, instead of projecting outward. Around your 30s, you may notice your lips becoming thinner and deflated. You might also experience loose skin around the jawline, which gives off the appearance of a weak chin.
The causes of volume loss and thin lips
As with most aesthetic concerns, the aging process often results in the loss of facial volume. Not only do our bodies produce less collagen (which gives skin its elasticity and plumpness), but subcutaneous fat is lost as we grow older. A sudden loss of weight, smoking and other poor lifestyle choices can also accelerate this look.
Thin lips occur for the same reason that your skin begins to sag over time: lost collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA give our lips plumpness, moisture and an overall look of youthfulness. Lip shape and size is also determined by genetics. If your lips are naturally small, there’s a good chance that your lips will begin to thin out in your late 20s. Luckily, there are non-surgical treatments that can add and restore volume to the face.
