Skin Care Volume, getting back the face you had in your twenties!

Wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, slack contours, dull skin... The signs of ageing can seem endless, and with the help of a tailored skin care routine you can fight back the years one by one. But when it comes to getting back that youthful look, your best bet is to work on restoring volume to your face.

Ageing skin means more than just the appearance of wrinkles and reduced firmness. It also spells facial volume loss, especially around the cheeks and cheekbones. This loss of volume, alongside the development of wrinkles and a dull complexion, noticeably emphasises the process of ageing facial skin.

Although your face is subject to change over time, facial volume loss can alter its entire shape and structure, and while it can sometimes be difficult to spot, it is a widespread problem. The jaw line weakens and grows wider, your face shape sags, your cheeks lose their plumpness, lips start thinning and the corners begin to droop! Not only do these signs make your face appear older, but they can also give you a sad and even worried expression.

What causes this volume loss?

When it comes to the process of ageing, you simply can't escape the question of facial volume loss. The gradual decline of hyaluronic acid and collagen, substances which 'fill' and allow the skin to appear firm and smooth, leads to volume loss, sagging skin and slack contour lines.

But that's not all. Lower hormone levels (causing a fall in the number of cells which add volume to your skin), lifestyle choices (including smoking, a poor diet and a lack of exercise, which are all sources of oxidative stress) and over-exposure to the sun (weakening cell structure and accelerating the appearance of the visible signs of aging) also contribute to facial volume loss.

How can you treat volume loss in your skin?

To address the loss of volume that comes with the onset of ageing and get back the face you had in your twenties, you need to replenish your skin with the hyaluronic acid that it's no longer able to produce itself.

Whether you opt for hyaluronic acid injections with a dermatologist, or a hyaluronic acid based cosmetic treatment like the Revitalift Filler Anti-Ageing Day Cream by L’Oréal Paris, what you want is to restore the balance of this substance to an optimal level. Fill out your cheeks, smooth away those wrinkles, replenish damaged collagen and restore substance to your skin. Get back the natural, younger appearance of your face and give it the boost it needs!
