Facial Volume Loss

Facial volume loss can make us look and feel much older than we really are.

Facial volume loss can make us look and feel much older than we really are. As we age, subtle facial structure changes can become more evident. Our cheeks deflate, deep wrinkles begin to show around our lips, and our foreheads begin to sag. For those of us who care about our appearance, these changes can do a number on our self-confidence. If you’re struggling with facial volume loss, Dr. Travis Shaw can help you regain your confidence. At Travis Shaw, MD, we’re happy to offer a range of skin rejuvenation treatment options to help combat signs of aging and return natural radiance to your face.

What Is Facial Volume Loss?

Facial volume loss is characterized by the presence of hollow cheeks and thin lips. These structural changes usually begin around one’s 30s and worsen over time. Shortly after hitting that benchmark, our bodies produce less collagen and subcutaneous fat. This, in turn, causes our skin to lose its elasticity and plumpness. Suddenly, your face becomes thinner, your skin sags, and the youthfulness of your complexion is reduced. While these changes are unavoidable, minimally invasive treatment options that yield natural-looking results are available. 

Treatments for Regaining Facial Volume

Dr. Travis Shaw offers a range of facial volume loss treatment options. These treatments are all FDA-approved and designed to deliver optimal results. All of the listed treatments are minimally invasive and can be done on an outpatient basis.


We are happy to offer Juvéderm and Restylane fillers for the treatment of facial volume loss. These formulated injectables use hyaluronic acid to increase volume and diminish wrinkles. Typically injected around the mouth area to plump lips, add cheek volume, and smooth fine lines, these treatments promise fast results with no downtime.

Vivace RF Microneedling

This radio frequency micro-needling device is part of the newest generation of minimally invasive skin treatment options. Vivace is designed to stimulate natural collagen growth without causing any discomfort or unpleasant side effects. Results of the Vivace treatment are immediate and cause gradual facial volume improvement over time.

TempSure Envi

This FDA-approved device uses radio frequency heating to improve facial volume without surgery. The heat used by TempSure is made of concentrated RF waves that promote the production of collagen, increasing the protein’s content and reinvigorating the vibrancy of your natural facial structure. 

PDO Thread Lift

The PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that safely lifts and contours loose skin on the face, neck, jawline, and in other areas of the body. The treatment uses biodegradable PDO (polydioxanone) sutures that induce neocollagenesis (new collagen production). This leads to natural facial volume improvement.

CIT Microneedling

Collagen Induction Therapy treatments involve lightly damaging the skin to promote natural collagen and elastin production. Over the course of treatment, platelets are extracted and injected into trouble areas to naturally promote rapid rejuvenation. This treatment option also facilitates topical gel, cream, and serum absorption.

Treatment Outcomes

Travis Shaw, MD is a proud provider of these minimally invasive facial volume loss treatment options. Session times and results vary on a treatment-by-treatment basis. However, each of the provided treatments will be administered with precision and care. Our aim is to deliver natural-looking results that last.
