When you think about aging, specifically the face, you probably think about lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. These are very common concerns for most people. Back in the day, if a woman (or man) wanted to improve their appearance, a face-lift was pretty much the only option. Some face-lifts are done well, but some result in an unnatural pulled appearance, or what we call a “windblown face”. While face lifts have their time place, we now know that restoring VOLUME into the face conveys youth, and can take years off your appearance! Let me explain. When you were younger, you had nice, round “apples” for cheeks. As we age, we not only lose the fat pads that create the apples, we also lose some of the bone that supports it as well. The results are cheeks that look flat and deflated, with the possibility of now looking “bottom heavy”. (Gravity…it’s not our friend). When you add volume back into the cheeks, it’s like a mini face lift. The good news? It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s relatively painless and it’s NOT surgery! No down time is one of the reasons so many people are choosing filler versus surgery. (Not to mention the cost). Another thing to consider is that age doesn’t matter. If you’re over 18 and have always wanted a little more fullness in your cheeks, we can do that too!
What is this miracle in a syringe? It’s Voluma XC, one of the many Juvederm products. (Voluma is made especially for cheeks). We love it because of its ability to lift, restore and sculpt, and we are impressed with its longevity. It can last up to 2 years! The results are immediate, subtle, and natural. Voluma is made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that’s found in the body, making the chance for any reaction or allergy very low. It is injected with an ultra-fine needle, and there is lidocaine added to minimize discomfort. Patients sometimes experience temporary swelling or slight bruising, but not always. If you have cheeks that leave you flat, we know you will LOVE Voluma!!
