Facial thinning is a natural part of the aging process. While the face thinning is one of the major differences between childhood and adulthood, this process does not stop once puberty stops. As we age, thinning of the face causes wrinkles and fine lines to appear at first, but eventually can lead to hollows in the cheeks, temples, and nasolabial folds. 

When it comes to preventing facial thinning, wearing adequate sun protection throughout the year, keeping your skin moisturized, and professional facials can all help improve and maintain skin quality which can reduce the amount of visible facial thinning over time. Many use BOTOX to treat dynamic wrinkles to prevent wrinkles before they form. 

For those with more advanced face thinning, dermal fillers can provide better face fullness. If thinning comes with sagging skin or other issues, a facial plastic surgery may provide better, longer lasting results. A facelift, blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser treatments can all address areas of thinning on the face.
