For years, the primary concern in aesthetic medicine was wrinkles and creases. These were the most obvious signs of the aging process and treatments were focused solely on their removal. However, it was quickly discovered that removing wrinkles and creases alone were insufficient in rejuvenating a patient’s appearance. Cosmetic anti-aging treatments that are better in achieving a revitalization and enhancement of your aging face focus on volume loss as well.
The Aging Face Is Marked By Volume Loss
A 2008 study published the following year in the medical journal, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, found that loss of various tissues and drooping (ptosis) of soft tissues in the face strongly contributed to an aged appearance. The loss of fat in the cheeks and temples creates a sunken, gaunt face: a skeleton-like appearance that reveals your age (and can make you look older than you actually are). For evidence of this, simply look at the face of someone younger than you. You can see that their cheeks are fuller and rounder.
The solution to restoring your youthfulness is to carefully replace lost volume first in the cheeks, then the temples and chin if necessary. The jawline may also be recontoured.
Currently, there is only one product available today that is specifically designed for this purpose: Juvéderm VOLUMA™. VOLUMA™ has been specially formulated to restore facial volume lost over time and is the first of its kind.
VOLUMA™ is an injectable volumizer based on hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in your body that lubricates, cushions and plumps your skin by binding with water. Its unique formulation also complements collagen and elastin levels in your skin. VOLUMA™ has a unique advantage over other products – it is formulated to be highly viscous and has a far smoother consistency to create an even finish to your facial contour. In addition, studies have shown that adverse events and allergic reactions occur at a lower rate. There is less incidence of nodules and granulomas occurring due to its smoother texture and NO incidence of reported migrations (which means VOLUMA™ stays where you want it to stay!).
A study conducted by German physicians described the appearance of 89% of their patients following treatment with VOLUMA™ as being “very much improved or much improved”.
Instantly revitalize your appearance with a desirable fullness indicating youthfulness. You’ll see results instantly, and unlike other facial fillers, your improvement may last up to 18 months!
