Facial Volume Loss vs. Dr. Carls
Get the inside scoop on the best ways to treat skin volume loss and reclaim a youthful complexion.
Dr. Carls has offered to share his tips and truths on losing facial volume. Here’s his prescriptive advice on how to combat facial volume loss— and the skincare ingredients he relies on to look his best.
What are the telltale signs of facial volume loss?
DR. CARLS: Volume loss is noticed by sagging on the jawline, loss of fullness in the cheeks, atrophy of the temple area, and an increase in wrinkles.
At what age do women typically start losing facial volume?
DR. CARLS: Volume loss typically starts in your mid-30s.
What are the contributing factors to facial volume loss?
DR. CARLS: Volume loss in the face is due to fat loss, muscle atrophy, bone loss, as well as changes in elastin and collagen in your skin.
Why is important to incorporate a product containing hyaluronic acid into your skincare regimen?
DR. CARLS: Formulas containing hyaluronic acid, a great topical skincare ingredient, help restore volume back to the face, replenishing skin with a natural, youthful-looking fullness. For a concentrated dose of highly purified hyaluronic acid, try HA Supreme for cell recovery available at our office and available to purchase from our website for $55.
What are the best ways to keep skin hydrated?
DR. Carls: Use good moisturizer, such as Emunition E2 Lipid Crème, available at our office for $35, drink plenty of water, and incorporate Omega 3s into your diet. Don’t over wash your skin and stay away from alcohol-based toners, as they can dry out your skin.
When is the best time for women to start an anti-aging regimen?
DR. Carls: An anti-aging regimen can be started as early as your 20s. But even my tweens use sunscreen, which helps prevent future wrinkles! Our SPF 20 sunscreen, which starts at $10, can be used on infants from age 6 months and older.
These options are easy to work into any skincare routine. If you have moderate to severe volume loss fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma may be needed. To find out more, call 928-680-7356 for a free consultation.
Do You Have A Loss Of Firmness In Your Skin?
Not sure if your skin is as firm as it once was? How do you know if your skin is suffering from loss of firmness? Ask yourself these key questions to find out.
- Is my skin sagging around the jawline?
- Has the texture of my skin changed? Is my skin thinner?
- Do I have creping in areas where the skin was once supple?
- Does my skin look wavy in areas?
- Is my overall skin not as taut as it once was?
Firm and Lift: What Your Skin Needs
Staying Firm. When the skin starts to lose its firmness, it can make you look older than you actually are. As we age, the skin’s intricate web of collagen and elastin fibers begins to break down. The effect can be loose and sagging skin, which is especially noticeable around the jawline.
A good firming cream will not only help lift the skin, it will also protect it from future damage. The sun’s UV rays can attack collagen and elastin, breaking it down so the skin’s architecture starts to sag.
We recommend our broad spectrum SPF 20 starting at $10 along with a non-buffered glycolic which retails for $30. We also recommend a retinol combined with Vitamin A for stimulating collagen and C for reversing UV damage and Vitamin E, specifically omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for lipid recovery. Our ACE serum retails for $58. Contact us today to purchase yours!
