Wrinkles may be the first thing people think of when it comes to facial ageing, but your face changes in many ways over time. The shape and structure shift too as volume is lost and this can actually be more ageing than the appearance of lines.
Facial ageing is an expected part of the normal aging process – not that we should welcome it with open arms! But genetics and environmental factors also play a role; so some people seem to hang onto their youthful looks longer than others while others feel very disappointed by the change in their looks.
Signs of Volume Loss
As facial volume is lost, there are gradual changes in the face:
- Flattening of the cheeks
- Sagging, loose skin
- Appearance of hollows
- A ‘U’ shaped chin/jawline rather than a youthful ‘V’
Dermal Fillers for Midface Volume Loss
Nowadays, the manufacturers of dermal fillers have moved a long way from a single ‘all purpose’ product. The latest ranges offer distinct products which are designed for different purposes.
Juvéderm VOLUMA® is a hyaluronic acid gel injectable treatment which was designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the face – ideal for the cheek area.
The replenishment of lost volume can be used structurally to restore definition to the face and provide a subtle ‘lift’ for a fresher, more alert and youthful look.
In a clinical study, patients reported looking up to 5 years younger after 6 months of treatment.
What’s more Juvéderm VOLUMA® has longer lasting results. Manufacturer Allergan describes it as ‘the only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area’ and also states that when treated again after 2 years, patients needed less product to achieve their results.
Non-Surgical Face Lift
The nature of Juvéderm VOLUMA® makes it ideal for more advanced treatments:
- 8-Point Face Lift, where injections are used at a series of 8 specific points to provide a rejuvenating ‘lift’ effect.
- Multi-Point Face Lift, Dr John Tanqueray’s own development of this treatment, takes this a step further, by offering patients an even more sophisticated result thanks to more injections.
Dr Tanqueray is an approved trainer for Allergan products (including BOTOX®, Juvéderm®, Juvéderm® VOLUMA and VOLBELLA. He was one of the first UK practitioners to experience using the 2017 addition to the range – Juvéderm® VOLITE.
