Loss of Volume
When we are young our skin is plump and our cheekbones are more defined and sculpted but, as we age, we begin to lose volume in our face. This is due to a number of factors. Not only do the levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen in our skin deplete with age, but gravity also takes its toll and our underlying support structures, such as fat pads under the eyes and in the mid face, start to head south. Our bone structure also changes as we age and we get bone resorption, which means our scaffolding is not as strong as it once was.
