Are you starting to notice that your cheeks aren’t as plump as they used to be? Are your undereye hollows becoming more prominent?
If that’s the case, it’s time to learn what causes a sunken face, including how dermal fillers can improve the appearance of a sunken face.
Why Is My Face So Sunken?
As we get older, collagen, elastin, and even facial fat pads break down, resulting in some changes that can cause the appearance of a sunken face. The effect is even more pronounced when the fat pads begin to drift south, which can exacerbate sunken cheeks and undereye hollows.
In some cases, getting adequate sleep and hydration can be enough to improve the appearance of a sunken face. However, if you’re doing the right things and still haven’t seen any improvement, it might be time to consider a new option: dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers to Improve a Sunken Face
Dermal fillers are anti-aging injections that focus on adding volume to key facial areas, like the cheeks, underneath the eyes, and even around the nose and mouth. Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid gel to add temporary volume to sunken areas; this gel acts as scaffolding that gently but effectively “lifts” the skin for a temporary boost.
The end result is skin that looks renewed, revitalized, and much younger!
You’re a good candidate for dermal fillers if you’ve noticed mild to moderate facial volume loss. For example, if you have dark hollows under your eyes that won’t go away no matter how much sleep you’ve been getting, dermal fillers could be a good option for you.
As another example, if you’ve been noticing more wrinkles and fine lines on your cheeks, dermal fillers can help boost cheek volume while minimizing the appearance of those lines.
