Facial volume loss is a common sign of ageing that occurs when the natural fat pads in our face start to shrink or descend. As a result, our cheeks may become flatter, our temples may hollow out, and our skin may sag. This can create a tired or aged appearance, making us look older than we feel.
There are several factors that can contribute to facial volume loss, including genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices such as smoking and poor nutrition. As we age, our body’s production of collagen and elastin also decreases, which can further exacerbate volume loss.
