Can skincare products fill out temples and facial volume?

What do you think of Environ products. My temples have lost volume so my face looks sunken and the sides of my cheeks protrude now, what can I do about this somewhat gaunt look?

I get asked this question frequently.   But dear readers…………..I’ll say this again…….there is NO skincare product  (creams, lotions, gels, etc.) in this world (at this time) that can reverse volume changes due to aging from loss of fat, bone and dermis (deeper layer of the skin).    You must use fillers to restore that volume.    More on fillers here.  

I know it’s bad news but I really don’t want you to waste your time and money.   Good products are good for other reasons, but they won’t help with this problem.

Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
