Aging changes the underling structures of the skin. Unfortunately, with time, the body makes less and less collagen and elastin, the fibers that give firmness, shape and structure to the skin. In addition, youthful fat stores in the face begin to diminish, leaving areas of age related hollowness, which can give you a gaunt, tired appearance as you get older.
If you look at a woman in her 20’s, you’ll most likely notice that her face is fuller; fat and collagen are responsible for this youthful volume. As the underlying fibers start to break down because of age, environmental damage and years of smiling and frowning, women will start to see sagging in the mid-face region and a flat, hollow look in the cheeks.
The Savin Center is pleased to be the premier destination in New Haven, CT and the surrounding area in Fairfield County as well as New York, NY, for Juvederm VOLUMA. VOLUMA is the first dermal filler to be FDA-approved to add volume and lift to the cheek area. VOLUMA uses hyaluronic acid, the substance responsible for youthful structure and moisture, to sculpt and fill in this hollow area of the face.
Dr. Lisa Donofrio is a world-renowned expert in facial fillers, as well as their application, and believes that, with VOLUMA, clients can now have even more control over the progression of their signs of aging. “The benefits of VOLUMA are numerous,” she says. “In addition to no downtime, results are immediate and can last up to two years. My patients now have a great tool in the fight against age related facial hollowness in the cheeks, one of the first signs of aging to appear. For some, it may be an alternative to facial fat transfer.”
