Facial fat loss, also know as lipoatrophy, is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes making you appear older then your years. Loss of facial fat may be a result of many factors such as the aging process, disease, medications, or extreme weight loss. Restylane®, Juvederm Ulta™, Restylane® Lyft and Radiesse® fillers are ideal for treating lipoatrophy. The fillers Restylane®, Juvederm Ultra™, Restylane® Lyft and Radiesse® adds volume and restores facial fat loss to the face and takes years off of your appearance.
The treatment for lipoatrophy has been the treatment of choice for patients whose faces become thin due to diseases or side effects from medications and is now commonly used for cosmetic purposes as well.
As we age, other areas of the body lose fat, such as the hands making the veins protrude. Restylane®, Juvederm Ultra™, Restylane® Lyft and Radiesse® fillers can also be used to restore youthfulness to the back of the hands. No skin testing is required.
This cosmetic filler treatment is a non-surgical treatment performed in the office. Treating lipoatrophy and restoring facial volume takes 45min to one hour and lasts up to one year.
