The Causes of Facial Volume Loss
During your youth, you may remember having skin that was plump, naturally hydrated and free from wrinkles. This was because the skin you had in your 20’s contained an abundance of collagen and hyaluronic acid. As you get older, however, your body loses some of these precious compounds resulting in a slew of age-related issues, many of which show up on the skin. This collagen loss begins in your 30’s and gradually becomes more pronounced as years go by. While lifestyle factors including diet, physical activity, sun exposure and smoking can impact the rate by which aging shows up on your skin, collagen loss cannot be avoided altogether. It’s simply part of the aging process.
