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.
