Volume Loss

Volume Loss 

Volume loss refers to the gradual reduction in subcutaneous fat and collagen in the face and other body areas. It is a natural part of the aging process and can result in changes to facial contours, such as a hollowed or sunken appearance. Volume loss can also occur due to weight loss, certain medical conditions, or lifestyle habits. 

Common areas where volume loss is noticeable include the cheeks, temples, under-eye area, and lips. The loss of volume can contribute to developing wrinkles, fine lines, and a tired or aged appearance. To learn more, visit Iconic Skin Clinic.

Common Causes of Volume Loss 


As we age, collagen and elastin production, two proteins responsible for the skin's firmness and elasticity, gradually decreases. This leads to a loss of facial fat and a reduction in the skin's ability to retain moisture, resulting in volume loss and a more hollowed or sagging appearance. 

Fat Redistribution 

Over time, the distribution of subcutaneous fat in the face and body can change. Fat that once provided youthful fullness in certain areas, such as the cheeks and temples, can diminish or shift, leading to volume loss. 

Lifestyle Factors

Unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as smoking, poor nutrition, excessive alcohol consumption, and inadequate skincare practices, can accelerate aging and contribute to volume loss in the face and body. 

Weight Loss

Significant weight loss can result in volume loss, whether through diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery. The loss of fat cells can cause the face to appear more sunken, leading to changes in body contours. 

Hormonal Changes

Hormonal fluctuations with aging or certain medical conditions can impact the skin's elasticity and collagen production, potentially contributing to volume loss.

Treatments to Address Volume Loss 

Dermal Fillers 

Dermal fillers are injectable substances, typically made of hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials, that can replenish lost volume and restore facial contours. They are commonly used to enhance the cheeks, lips, and under-eye area and fill in nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dermal fillers provide immediate results with minimal downtime. 


Sculptra is an injectable treatment that stimulates collagen production in the skin, addressing both volume loss and skin laxity. It gradually improves skin thickness and elasticity, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Multiple treatment sessions are usually required for optimal results. 

Thread Lifts 

Thread lifts involve inserting dissolvable threads under the skin to lift and tighten sagging areas. They can provide subtle volume restoration and improve facial contours. Thread lifts stimulate collagen production and have a lifting effect lasting several months to over a year.
