Facial volume enhancement

One of the less known processes of the aging process in the facial structures is a progressive volume loss that takes place over time. This natural ageing process causes resorption of bone, muscle, and fat and thinning of the skin, which leads to loss of your full, firm, youthful appearance. Skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity from loss of collagen and elastic fibers, causing wrinkles and folds to appear.

Volume loss correction

Facial volume replacement can be obtained in two ways. Which one to chose depends on how fast you want to see results.

If you don”t need an immediately visible result, you chose PRP or Sculptra. It takes months to build the volume by stimulating the renewal of your own collagen and fibroblasts and the first effect you will see after 6-8 weeks, but in the end you will enjoy a very smooth and long lasting effect up to 1,5 years.

If you want to see immediate result choose Radiesse, because it combines the properties of a filler with those of a volume enhancer. The advantage is the immediate effect, but the disadvantage is that for the same treated area you need more syringes then with PRP.

For more details see the pages about Radiesse and PRP or PDO.
