When Thin is To Thin

Some of us spend most of our youth watching our weight, trying to remain healthy and thin.  Then, suddenly, due to exercising, age, or other issues, our faces look too skinny—we look gaunt!  Or of course, you are fit and healthy, but you happen to lose your fat in all the wrong places.  Your face needs fat for a healthy, youthful appearance. That baby fat really does make you look younger. According to a study published by Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the lead culprit that causes people to look older is a thin face.

Age is definitely a big factor.  As you age, you lose more and more volume in our faces.  Facial volume is especially important to women over 40.  If women lose weight after 40, aging becomes more enhanced and accelerated.  If you lose weight in your body, you will naturally lose the volume in your face as well.  Losing volume in your face causes wrinkles to develop,  jowls to appear, and creates that skeletal look in which folds become more apparent.

What can you do when your face to thin?

Voluma XC

Voluma XC is the first and only Hyaluronic injectable gel FDA approved to instantly add volume to the cheek and mid-face area.

Voluma XC helps restore the lost volume in your face that can be lost from aging or weight loss. You get natural looking results instantly that can last up to two years!

dermal filler treatment areas


Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid, same as in Voluma, (a naturally hydrating substance found in young health skin) gel filler typically used to fill in the “parenthesis” around your mouth.  It’s used to instantly smooth out folds and wrinkles on your face.


Radiesse is a facial filler that can instantly correct facial wrinkles.  Radiesse can be used to fill out hollowed cheeks, or raise sagging cheeks (to give a more youthful healthier appearance).  Radiesse also stimulates your body to produce your own natural collagen to restore fullness and smooth out wrinkles.

Collagen beneath our skin is a key element that provides volume and gives shape to our faces.  At around age 30, the collagen in our skin starts to break down faster than we can replace it.


To choose the right dermal filler for you, and for your concerns, can sometimes be hard. I always recommend coming in to our office and getting a complimentary consultation with one of our nurses, so you can decide together what would be best for you. The Laser Image Company, your place for treatment & education.
