Wrinkles from volume loss occur when the body begins to decrease its production of natural substances, including collagen, fat, and elastin. Volume loss can also result from bone loss. As the skin ages, the middle layer of skin thins due to collagen loss, which reduces the skin’s ability to retain elasticity and moisture. A youthful look depends on having the right amount of facial fat in the proper places.
Facial volume loss results from redistribution, accumulation, and atrophy of fat. As we age, fat tissue loses its structure and spreads thinly across the face, causing the skin to lose its plump, youthful appearance. A significant loss of facial bone occurs with aging as well, and without its structural support, there are noticeable changes in appearance. We can restore that lost volume and bring back a more youthful appearance, softening the years on your face.
Dermal fillers are a quick and effective approach to restoring volume loss, and they provide instant results. At DermaHealth, we proudly offer a wide variety of dermal fillers. For those seeking a more natural approach to restoring volume loss, we also provide ePrime™ laser treatments.
Traditional fillers are soft liquids or gels, which can be injected into the area to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plump lips, fill out cheek hollows, and repair other facial imperfections. They work by filling the depleted space below the wrinkles, replacing lost fat. Traditional fillers can be injected into the dermis or subcutaneous layer of the skin, depending on the filler and treatment goal.
Collagen stimulators help replenish the natural collagen your body loses during the skin’s natural aging process. They are injected into the dermis or subcutaneous layer, filling the spaces where collagen has been lost. The newly produced collagen provides a structural framework to hold hyaluronic acid and elastin and helps restore the dermis. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules to the dermis and restores skin moisture. Elastin provides elasticity and helps the skin stretch.
Wrinkles from Volume Loss Treatments

Belotero works quickly for results that are uniquely you. In fact, Belotero can be injected into the very fine lines such as crow’s-feet, lines above the lip, and other superficial areas that are mid-dermis to deep dermis. This product is clear and will not show under the skin.
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid filler used to treat moderate to severe facial folds on the sides of the nose and mouth – also known as parentheses lines. This is an excellent treatment to re-volumize lips that have flattened and thinned over the years and fill in the small lines around the mouth. Juvéderm’s results will last from 6 to 12 months.
Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This injectable gel is most commonly used to restore the loss of natural fat in the cheeks and midface area, correcting volume loss for a more natural-looking, youthful appearance. Depending on the facial area where the product is applied, clients will see results lasting anywhere from 6 to 12+ months.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic collagen stimulator that is injected in a seed and liquid base deep under the muscle. Sculptra Aesthetic is made of biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that naturally and gradually absorbs into the deep dermis to help stimulate your skin’s own collagen production. While Sculptra is excellent for most areas of the face, lips and surface wrinkles are not a target for this particular product. Results can last up to two or more years.
