What happens to our facial fat as we age?
Our facial fat pads give our face a healthy volume and fullness. As we age the fat descends down the face and thins causing us to lose the fuller appearance of youth.
This process begins between the ages of 20 and 30 years when we start to lose the fat under our eyes resulting in dark circles and a tired appearance. Over time jowls start to form, nose to mouth lines deepen and you lose the definition of the cheek bones.
Volume can be replaced and lines smoothed by using dermal fillers. These dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid that is a substance naturally found in our skin.
