For facial depressions and lip volume loss (“liquid” facelift)
As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks and other facial areas can lose volume and skin may begin to sag and create noticeable depression. Juvederm Voluma© XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment. Juvederm® gel is indicated for the correction of moderate to severe lines along the sides of the nose and mouth (such as nasolabial folds). Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). As you age, time, sunlight, and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume – creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds, like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Juvederm XC helps replace the HA your skin has lost, adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm XC is also available in two formulations, Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and last approximately 9 to 12 months. Juvederm has been tested on both female and male patients and all skin types, so everyone can enjoy the benefits.
Restylane, and Perlane are other products are also hyaluronic acid fillers used to restore volume and smooth facial wrinkles. Radiesse® is a filler that consists of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water based gel. These microspheres are very similar to minerals naturally found in the human body. With time, the body absorbs these microspheres leaving behind natural collagen. Dr. Sabbagh will determine which filler is right for you.
