Smile lines? You can blame those on aging. The natural loss of volume in your cheek area is part of the process. And as you get older, the lines will only deepen, the cheeks will flatten, and the skin will begin to sag.
In the past, facial volume restoration involved placing fillers into the deep nasolabial furrows around the mouth. We now know that smile lines result from volume deflation in the cheek area, and can be ‘lifted’ by restoring volume directly to the cheeks.
A Non-Invasive Remedy
Voluma®, the new injectable filler by Allergan®, is the newest FDA-approved injectable gel to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to lift and contour the cheeks, adding volume just beneath the skin’s surface.
By using Voluma®, Dr. Bared can improve the appearance of smile lines while giving his patients a smooth contour in the mid-face region. Voluma® can be combined with other facial fillers to further help fill in smile lines or to eliminate other wrinkles and elevate sagging brows.
Dr. Bared has found that by placing Voluma in the outer aspect of the midface, he is able to achieve a more natural appearance while lifting the region around the mouth.
