Gone are the days where as practitioners we focused on wrinkles in isolation. Now we look at the face as a unit. The ageing process results in volume loss from certain areas of the face, particularly the mid-face and cheek areas. Volumisers should aim to restore your natural fullness.
You should not look “pillow faced” or over corrected. As with all cosmetic treatments less is more.
Areas suitable for treatment:
- Mid-face and cheek areas
Products used are as follows:
Radiesse contains calcium hydroxyapatite produces an immediate effect and also stimulates collagen over time. Effects last approximately 12 months. The product incorporates anaesthetic, therefore your treatment should be quite comfortable.
Juvederm Voluma is an injectable Volumisers from the Juvederm range which contains hyaluronic acid. It also contains lidocaine, an anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable treatment.
Sculptra is injected deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production. It takes six weeks to see effects which can last up to two years.
Dr. Lisa Fay explains why, with 7 years experience in anti-wrinkle injection treatments, Juvederm Voluma is her treatment of choice.
I use Juvederm Voluma as my treatment of choice because the effects are immediate. It is a very safe treatment with no risks of granulomas ( lumps or nodules). The results are very natural. Using newer techniques such as cannulae injections bruising and swelling is significantly reduced.
