While fillers are used to smooth facial lines and wrinkles, volumizers are designed to address facial contour, adding definition that may have been lost with age. Over the years, collagen and fatty tissue deplete and the remaining facial structure begins to descend, causing your appearance to gradually evolve. Many of our patients are unhappy with their more mature look and choose volumizers to restore the youthful aesthetic they once had.
When you come in for you consultation, you will have the chance to discuss your concerns and what you hope to achieve with your non-surgical injectable treatment. Based on this information, as well as an assessment of your appearance, one of our experienced plastic surgeons will educate you on the volumizer or other cosmetic injectables that can provide you with optimal results.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
Among the various injectables available at New York Plastic Surgical Group—a division of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, PC (LIPSG)—JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is one of the most revolutionary treatments we provide. This is one of the first injectables FDA-approved to add fullness to the midfacial area. As we age, the cheeks often take on a hollow or sunken appearance due to the loss of volume. By opting for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, you can effectively restore this cheek definition, helping rejuvenate your entire facial aesthetic.
Patients 21 years or older who wish to add fullness to their midfacial region are considered good candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC. Immediately following your procedure, you should begin to notice its volumizing effect. Results can last for up to two years, making this a worthwhile investment for many individuals.
Restylane® Lyft is approved by the FDA to augment the cheeks and correct age-related deficiencies in this area. The injectable is composed of hyaluronic acid and is designed to treat moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. It works by adding volume to problem areas to smooth unwanted lines, creating a natural-looking rejuvenation. Restylane® Lyft has proven to be especially beneficial for diminishing nasolabial folds and providing a lifting effect to the cheeks.
Its formula contains a small amount of lidocaine, which helps numb the injection site for a more comfortable treatment experience. Patients 21 and older are eligible for Restylane® Lyft. Results have shown to last anywhere from six months to a year or more.
