A gaunt face refers to a face that appears thin and bony. The term is usually used to describe the face of someone who looks sick, malnourished, or unhealthy. It generally isn’t used to describe a naturally thin but healthy-looking face.

As you age, your face tends to lose fat. This loss of fat can cause sunken cheeks and a more angular appearance. Certain lifestyle habits, such as not wearing sunscreen, not eating a balanced diet, and smoking, can age your face more quickly. Subcutaneous fat, or the fat beneath your skin, gives your face volume and plumpness. As you get older, you tend to lose some of this fat. This loss makes your face appear thinner and bonier. As you age, your skin loses elasticity due to a reduction in the proteins, collagen and elastin. Losing these proteins can cause more sagging skin and wrinkles.

*** PRO TIP ***

Incorporate a growth factor serum day and night to help thicken the dermis and epidermis. Recovery from NeoGenesis is my go-to product for advanced signs of volume loss.

Osmosis Recovery supplement: can replace much of the facial volume loss associated with aging by restoring critical nutrients to reactivate fat cells, which creates a youthful appearance. This is a super effective product that will bring good results. 7-8 bottles for extreme cases.

To jump-start the process, you can do a series of 6 to 8 sessions of Sculplla, which uses the same ingredient in Sculptra. This treatment has a cumulative effect on the overall density of the skin.
