Is there any way to increase the amount of subcutaneous facial fat?
As I'm only 20, with wrinkles and I look like a meth addict from being skinny, I know this is all due to repetetive motion and subcutaneous fat loss.

Is there anyway to increase it back?

Hi, Perfectionist.
Luckily, Christmas will soon be here. That is the best time of the year to stock up on fat reserves by eating cake, chocolate, marzipan etc etc... Wink

Sorry, I cannot think of any other way to increase subcutaneous fat. Smile

Laughing LOL Laughing Septembergirl. Isn't this the truth. Unfortunately we cannot choose where the fat will go and most likely it will go to my hips before it reaches my face. Wink

If only we could choose where those Christmas treats are stored Laughing

Just like we cant spot reduce we cant spot gain.
Maybe look into fillers?

I know I can't choose where the fat'll go but, is it SUBCUTANEOUS fat that you gain?
There are different types you know, the other is worthless.
Subcutaneous = main cause of wrinkles/sagging.

I feel fillers at age 20 is a little drastic if it's possible to get subcutaneous fat back

I've heard copper can increase sub fat. Check out what Dr. Pickard says at www.skinbiology.com. I stopped using it for a while, but I'm starting again in rotation (have the problem of no wrinkles, but my face is gaunt-looking)

Perfectionist,
I wonder if you have checked with your regular MD I at your age weighed a whopping 93 lbs. At best and am 5-2 1/2 height, I never experienced what you are mentioning as far as the facial fat? I was in the super skinny club until 26 and first of four kids added some pounds.
Just a thought?

DM
PS I ate plenty, just burned it up really fast!

this is a little off-topic, but I thought I'd mention it anyways.

I read on here that people have had success with tear troughs and lip plumping by using avocado oil on the gaunt/sunken/un-plump areas at night. AT least a cheap option to experiment until you get a solid answer.

Songbird, that makes two of us. Smile

Perfectionist. Fat is fat. Although subcutaneous fat is found just beneath the skin, you lose it when you lose weight and vice verse. To get more fat back into your face, you need to either
a) Eat more or b) have fat injections. I believe none of these alternatives appeal to you. There is no topical that will increase the amount of fat under your skin, but perhaps facial exercises will make you look less skinny?

You could try using products that contain peptides or Matrixyl 3000 which are supposed to plump up your skin.

Maybe you could try facial exercises to plump up the look of your face? This won't increase subcutaneous fat, but it will probably bulk up your facial muscles so you'll look less gaunt. There are several good (and very extensive!)threads on the forum detailing facial exercise programs, including "Ageless If You Dare" by Loulou and "Flex Effects" by Deb Crowley. I've been doing both programs since the end of August. I have a flattish, narrowish, oval shaped face, and I've definitely noticed that my cheeks have filled out a bit since doing them. (However, I'm trying to work on getting rid of these NL folds, which seem to be getting a *bit* better, though I have a ways to go!)

I hear ya! I used to have the plump baby face but becuase I lost weight....baby face no more. I'm 21.

I have started to put on some weight- going ok so far but its a slow process. I'm still too slim.

I am eating advocados, walnuts, hazelnuts, lots of protein. I am also taking tabelspoons of walnut and advocado oil everyday becuase they are calorific and are a healthy way of putting on weight, i.e. won't cause inflamation!

I am trying to stay clear of sugary foods becuase they break down the collagen, and I'm wearing Anthelios sunscreen everyday.

Good luck with putting on weight!

You are so young and your fat loss is not due to aging so it should be very easy to make your face plump by putting on a few pounds. Happy eating! I am jealous!

I know I have answered this to you on the FE forum, but I think its really important to make sure there is no health condition or challenge that has helped you to lose fat at such a young age. Subcutaneous fat does decrease as the years roll on, but I'm pretty surprised that your experiencing this at 20.

I don't think you can get lost subcutaneous fat back per se, but I can't see why you can't get an area to fill in with stronger and tougher cells using techniques like massage etc.
