As we age and lose facial volume, the contour of the face changes, causing shadow patterns to develop, while youthful highlights fade. As we age, we experience a loss of facial fat, loss of muscle tone, facial bone loss and loss of collagen and elastin. Over time, repeated facial movement that were once dynamic wrinkles now become static lines that are gradually etched into the skin over time. Sagging occurs as the skin no longer bounces back. Lastly, lifestyle choices such as sun exposure, smoking, alcohol use, diet and stress can influence premature onset and progression of aging.
The aging process has an impact beyond the facial wrinkles and lines on the surface. The goal of facial aesthetic treatments is to temporarily help restore facial volume and correct age-related shadow patterns of the aging face. Contact Blair Plastic Surgery at 800-833-3888 to arrange a facial assessment and discuss a customized facial filler treatment plan for your facial structure, genetics, and aging process.
Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the skin’s dermis, Juvederm® works by restoring moisture in the tissue below the skin’s surface. Juvederm® gel was designed in a biosynthetic process and is not of animal origin, so there is no worry about allergic reaction.
Over time, lips can look thinner and less full. Juvederm® is a great solution for lips that have lost their luster. With Juvederm®, the crow’s feet that are a common sign of aging can be filled in and softened for a beautifully younger look. Juvederm® is also frequently recommended to fill in superficial wrinkles around the nose and to enhance volume in the cheeks.
Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC
We offer both Juvederm® XC and Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC. The main difference between these two versions is their thickness. Juvederm® XC is thinner and silkier, making it ideal for use in more superficial areas of the face, such as filling fine lines and enhancing the lips. Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC is thicker, making it ideal for deeper facial folds and wrinkles that require more dramatic correction. We will recommend the appropriate filler type depending on your needs and cosmetic goals.
As you age, it's not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks also lose volume and the skin may sag. That's why a more youthful profile starts with the apples of your cheeks! Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel specifically used in the cheek area. Voluma XC instantly adds volume, improves contour, and subtly lifts the cheek area. This easy, non-surgical treatment provides natural looking results that last up to 2 years with optimal correction.
