The Secret to a Youthful Face: Volume

Most people know that a face lift in Maryland will give the skin a firmer look. But firm skin isn’t the only characteristic of a youthful complexion. Adding volume to the face helps provide a soft, youthful look and enhances facial contours, such as the lips, cheekbones and chin.

When we are younger, our skin is plump with healthy collagen, which gives the skin its fullness and elasticity. As we age, collagen production slows down and the skin starts to deflate and sag. To replace lost collagen and create a healthy, younger-looking complexion, I offer the following treatments:

  • Dermal fillers: These injectable products are a great option for someone who wants to reduce wrinkles or restore lost volume to the cheeks or under the eyes. Dermal fillers usually last from 4 to 6 months, but some, such as Sculptra® Aesthetic, can maintain changes for up to 2 years.
  • Fat transfer: A fat transfer provides dual benefits because it removes unwanted fat from one area of the body and moves it to an area where atrophy has occurred. Fat transfer can be used to improve the lips, jawline, nasolabial folds, cheeks or under-eyes.
  • Facial implants: These are best for people who want to enhance their facial features permanently. I offer implants for the cheeks, nose, jaw and chin. Most facial implant surgeries are short procedures that require little downtime.

These procedures can be used alone or in combination with other anti-aging techniques, such as a facelift, eyelid surgery or a brow lift. By combining treatments, you can create more significant changes or extend the longevity of your results.
