Facial volume loss

Univers NuFace treatments for facial volume loss

Facial volume loss, also referred to as “volumetric aging”, is the direct consequence of decreased production of the cells responsible for skin tone and elasticity. It is characterized by cheek hollowing and cheekbone sagging, rendering the face less harmonious and older in appearance.
The face is one of the most exposed parts of the body and therefore, one of the most affected by skin aging. With age, regenerative skin cells become diminished because the body produces certain substances necessary for their development less frequently. These deficiencies are responsible for skin aging.
As such, Univers NuFace offers a dermal filling treatment, making it possible to overcome these deficiencies and combat volume loss.

Dermal filling: hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that is naturally present in our body. It has specific properties that enable skin hydration and promote the restoration of facial volume loss.
The more time passes, the less our body secretes molecules that actively participate in cell renewal. Substances such as collagen, elastin or even hyaluronic acid itself are produced less intensely, leading to a loss of skin tone and elasticity in addition to reduced cell renewal. As such, dermal filling gives the body what it needs to compensate for its deficiencies.

Univers NuFace: practical advice

Facial volume loss is defined by density loss, general skin sagging and thinner skin. Skin is overall less elastic and tonic, wrinkles are formed and complexion becomes blemished. This is specifically due to decreased production of certain elements that contribute to cell renewal and health skin tissue, such as collagen, elastin or hyaluronic acid.

While this process is inevitable, it can nevertheless be slowed down. Indeed, beyond the hormonal considerations, certain external factors promote its initiation. As such, we advise you to avoid overexposure to the sun, as well as certain substances that are harmful to skin health like alcohol and cigarettes. These are sources of oxidative stress, which occurs when molecules called “free radicals” are secreted by the body and attack the cellular structures, specifically those that give the skin its tonicity and its smooth and clear appearance. Maintain the healthiest lifestyle possible, eat a well-balanced diet and remain physically active. This will have beneficial effects on both your body and skin health.
