How Can I Restore Age-Related Volume Loss in My Face?

When it comes to improving signs of aging, you might be surprised to learn that you should look beyond those wrinkles and fine lines.  As it turns out, minimizing lines isn’t enough to get that natural look we’re all after – you also need to focus on addressing age-related volume loss!

Age-related volume loss occurs when facial fat pads start to break down in key areas, like the cheeks and underneath the eyes.  Once broken down, these fat pads start to migrate south, which results in excess fat around the jowls and underneath the chin.  Additionally, loss of volume can exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the eyes, cheeks, and mouth.
To counteract these issues, more plastic surgeons are turning to Juvederm Voluma XC for natural-looking volume that highlights youthful facial contours.  Voluma works by using a thicker hyaluronic acid gel to instantly add volume to the treatment areas.  This gel acts as temporary scaffolding for the cheeks, while hyaluronic acid works to encourage long-term collagen production in the skin.
The result is skin that looks smooth and flawless, with cheeks that resemble the facial volume you enjoyed in your teens and early twenties!
Juvederm Voluma is a great solution for clients who have seen the following:

  • Sunken, hollow cheeks
  • An increase in lines and wrinkles around the cheeks
  • Hollow undereye areas

Juvederm Voluma lasts between one to two years; side effects are minimal and can include temporary pain and swelling at the injection site.  Juvederm Voluma XC contains lidocaine to help manage any discomfort experienced during the procedure.
