Volume loss is a common side effect of growing older. As we age, our skin stops producing collagen and elastin, which are two essential substances for keeping skin firm and elastic. A lack of collagen and elastin means that wrinkles form more easily, and facial contour can start to lose definition due to skin beginning to sag. In addition, hollows can form in the cheeks and temples that cast unflattering shadows and cause people to look older than they are.
Luckily, Dr. Ava Shamban, Dr. Soheil Simzar and Dr. Gregory Van Dyke offer a wide variety of treatments that can help to restore volume and definition to the face. If you are suffering from volume loss, don’t hesitate to contact Ava MD to schedule a consultation!
What is Volume Loss?
Volume loss occurs when the skin slows production of collagen and elastin, which in turn leads to thinner, less elastic skin. This lack of elasticity coupled with thinning skin means that wrinkles can’t spring back as easily as in youth, and become deeper and more prominent. This lack of youthful elasticity also leads to lack of definition and hollow areas in the face and neck. Dr. Ava is committed to helping each of her patients bring forth their signature features and natural beauty, through eliminating “background noise,” such as sagging skin and wrinkles.
Volume loss is one of the major signs of age, so restoring volume can turn back time significantly on the face and neck. There are many non-invasive treatments that can help restore lift and volume to the face, eliminating hollows and smoothing wrinkles as well. Dr. Ava will discuss treatment options with each of her patients in order to come up with the best individualized treatment plan.
Ava MD also specializes in the liquid facelift, which is a fully customized non-invasive treatment plan that utilizes a variety of dermal fillers and neuromodulators, such as Botox, to target and treat a variety of skin concerns. A liquid facelift can provide a comprehensive rejuvenation of the face, leaving the patient looking youthful and refreshed. It is a great alternative to a drastic surgical facelift, as the results of a liquid facelift are more natural and there is no surgery or recovery time necessary.

Volume Loss Treatment Options
Dr. Ava and her associates offer many options to reverse volume loss, including the recently FDA approved Restylane Lyft. Restylane Lyft is a rebranding of Perlane, and is the first and only dermal filler FDA approved for both mid face volume restoration and smoothing of nasolabial folds, also known as smile or laugh lines. It is specifically formulated to be injected deep into the skin in order to naturally restore lift and volume to the mid face area as well as reduce the appearance of smile lines.
Ava MD also offers a variety of other dermal fillers and bio-technologies aimed at restoring volume as well as softening wrinkles. Among these are collagen boosting fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra, which actively promote the formation of collagen and allow natural restoration of volume and smoothing of wrinkles. Selphyl, a bio-technology, uses the patient’s own blood to plump lips and fill wrinkles, and hyaluronic acid gel fillers, such as Restylane Lyft and Juvederm Voluma XC, can provide almost immediate volume and lift that can last for years.
