Facial volume is naturally lost as a result of age, genetics, and various environmental and behavioural factors such as emotional stress, weight gain or loss, smoking, illness, or hormonal changes. The natural decrease of collagen and the continual breakdown of supportive tissues in the face leads to the loss of facial contours and and can contribute to the appearance of sagging skin.
When there is insufficient volume to plump the the face, there is a higher instance of lines and wrinkles. Lack of facial volume leads to a sunken appearance around the eyes, flattened out cheeks, thin lips, and the jawline loses its definition as a result of sagging skin. In some instances, skin hangs slightly at the jaw and jowls appear. Around the nose and mouth, fine lines may evolve into deep folds.
