Volumetrics – why they are important! Also Voluma.
I’m glad you wrote because I think many women start to see this effect around the age of 50ish. And, I’m happy that you’ve found someone good to work with and who’s work looks natural. Ask your doctor about the options below.
Around this age, volume loss (bone, fat & skin) starts to become more apparent and many people wrongly assume that just lifting or tightening the skin, or even a facelift, will do the trick. If you are wanting to stay non surgical, then a combination of more agressive volume replacement (think Sculptra, Voluma or fat) combined with some skin tightening (think fractionated CO2 laser, Thermage or Exilis) will be the most effective.
I haven’t written much about Voluma yet, but bottom line, it’s a slightly thicker, higher G prime (more lift), longer lasting version of Juvederm. It’s particularly useful for the cheeks and jawline.
In my opinion, the thread lifts often look uneven, the threads can break or get infected and they don’t last a predictable length of time. Most plastic surgeons don’t offer this option, at this point in time.
Hope this helps,
