Want to Restore Facial Volume? Here’s How


Many people find that they lose facial volume and plumpness in their faces as they age. The result is a visible loss of glow, firmness, and vitality in the face. This loss is difficult for most, and we've seen many patients desire to reconnect with a youthful look to put their best face forward.  As functional medicine doctors, we've helped many patients restore their facial volume. In our specialized field of medicine, we're passionate about a holistic view of health and believe that if you feel your best, you're more likely to look your best—we support anyone ready to take steps to boost that confidence. 

As functional medicine doctors, we know that many people are hesitant to restore facial volume through surgery. Thankfully, plenty of non-surgical procedures are available if you are ready to restore your facial volume. When deciding which procedure you'd like to pursue, it's crucial to partner with a medical professional that takes the time to fully understand your health history and your goals so that you can rest assured that your face is in the right hands.

How To Tell If You Have Facial Volume Loss

Everyone experiences facial volume loss differently, but the most common signs are:

  • Wrinkled skin
  • Skin that looks “tired”
  • Unbalanced skin fullness
  • Hollowed areas and sagging skin
  • Loss of a youthful glow

What Causes Facial Volume Loss?


1. Aging

Facial volume loss is a natural part of aging, but its effects are specifically caused by less collagen and elastin production as time goes on. Collagen's primary function is to provide skin support. Elastin allows the skin to snap back after being misshapen through stretching, squishing, or pinching. It works together with collagen to prevent sagging and wrinkled skin. While collagen and elastin are produced in high volume, production starts slowing down with age and exposure to UV rays.

2. Hormonal Changes

Certain hormones are key for cellular reproduction. Healthy cells keep the unwanted effects of the aging process at bay, whether it's sagging skin or serious illness. Though hormonal imbalance varies from person to person, many people experience fluctuations in the following hormones, all of which can lead to loss of facial volume:

  • Estrogen
  • Thyroid hormones
  • Testosterone
  • Progesterone
  • Growth hormone
  • Insulin
  • Cortisol

3. Lifestyle Factors

Certain lifestyle factors have a drastic effect on your facial volume. Eating a diet high in sodium can contribute to tired-looking skin, while a diet with fruits and vegetables can slow the aging process. 

Smoking cigarettes and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and caffeine drastically increase the chances of skin aging faster. Conversely, staying hydrated and getting plenty of quality sleep can help you and your skin retain its youthful glow.

What Are Treatments To Restore Facial Volume?

You'll find plenty of choices if you want to restore your facial volume. Working with a functional medicine doctor helps you choose a treatment that's the perfect fit for your personal goals.

1. Vampire Facial

This restorative treatment combines micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. The combination of the two leverages the youthful properties of your plasma to restore collagen production. It's minimally invasive and highly effective. 

2. Vampire Facelift

Hyaluronic fillers such as Juvederm are injected into your face, and platelet-rich plasma is taken from your arm. This treatment helps you restore facial volume by taking the vampire facial to the next level with hyaluronic fillers. The process takes between one to two hours and only requires minimal patient downtime.

3. Studio Skin Medical Peels

This is a minimally-invasive, highly-customizable treatment that restores your skin’s youthful glow. Additionally, studio skin medical peels reverse sun damage, minimize skin imperfections, remove dead skin cells, and smooth fine wrinkles. 

This treatment involves different levels of chemicals. It’s crucial to work with a trusted medical professional—such as a functional medicine doctor—who’s experienced in applying the appropriate medical peel for your individual needs. 

4. Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport

These injectable neurotoxins are a highly popular option that smooths the skin and restores a youthful look by delivering small proteins that prevent facial muscle contracting. The result is a drastically reduced appearance of wrinkles. 

5. Doctors Studio Lift

Exclusive to Doctors Studio, this option is the one for you if you want an exclusive, customized treatment to restore your facial volume in Boca Raton, FL. We tailor treatment using cutting-edge techniques such as threading, PRP, and hyper dilute radiesse. This treatment isn't just for your face; your neck and brows will also benefit.
