How does aging affect facial volume?

Over time, our skin’s natural collagen production starts to slow down. Thinning of fat pads in the face, bone structure changes and a decline in hyaluronic acid can lead to volume loss; altering our facial contours.

Cosmetic Enhancements > Volume and Contouring

Where can we expect volume loss?

At Sydney’s trusted cosmetic clinic, Artistic Aesthetics, we offer a range of cosmetic enhancements and skin rejuvenation treatments to help reduce the signs of aging.


As we age and volume loss occurs, lips begin to appear thinner. The contour becomes less defined and lips can appear smaller.


Volume loss in the cheeks can lead to a more sunken or hollow appearance. As the contour begins to fade, cheeks may sit lower, thus, looking more aged.

The Chin

What about the chin? With a reduction in volume in the chin area as we age, the chin can appear less defined and imbalance the lower facial region.

Nasolabial Folds

The volume in the nasolabial area decreases overtime, making folds more pronounced. This can cause the face, to look more aged and tired.


Aging causes a loss of definition in the jawline causing the contour to become less sharp, and develop jowls. This can be improved with volume.
