Facial volume loss

At IHYA Clinic in Birmingham, we understand how the ageing process can not only affect our looks, but can have a major effect on our self-confidence and wellbeing. We believe that looking great should not be for the privileged few or just those who are younger.

We embrace and celebrate change, naturally, but also believe in ageing gracefully, and therefore offer a range of clinically-proven, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, so you can look and feel your very best, even as time passes on.

Facial volume loss is one of the major contributing factors to the ageing process and can have a significant impact on our facial appearance. But it’s not just ageing that can cause facial volume loss. Certain illnesses, medications and weight loss can also contribute to volume loss of the face.

Causes of facial volume loss

As the natural ageing process becomes more apparent, the body goes through a myriad of changes and for the face, this can present itself as a loss of volume in the temples, cheeks, lower face and neck.

Certain tissues such as bone, muscle and fat decline. Bone loss can lead to wider peri orbital spaces, leading to sunken eyes, eye bags and dark circles. The fat pads that have once supported our skin begin to reduce, leading to sunken cheeks, hollow temples and the skin, sagging and becoming looser around these areas.

Symptoms of facial volume loss

Our jawline may start to take on a more square appearance, due to sagging skin of the cheeks forming jowls and our chin and jawline may succumb to the same fate, with less definition and what is known as a ‘turkey neck’.

Coupled with all of these factors, the skin itself loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid over time, leading to dry, dehydrated skin, lacking in elasticity and that dewy glow, so synonymous with youthful and resilient skin.

Treatments for facial volume loss

Fortunately, ongoing advancements in aesthetic medicine means that one doesn’t have to resort to invasive, expensive and sometimes painful surgery, to regain a youthful facial appearance and maintain a natural look.

At IHYA, we don’t aim to take 20 years off or encourage unrealistic expectations, but rather we embrace your current natural beauty and aim to enhance it, so you look more refreshed, rejuvenated and rested.

With our range of non-surgical injectable and device-led treatments, you can regain your self-confidence, without looking strange or over-done.

Our treatments for facial volume loss include:
