Traditionally, the term “facelift” referred to a surgical procedure to correct sagging facial and neck tissues.  More recently, with the rapidly advancing development of new rejuvenation modalities, facelift is most commonly used to refer to any procedure which addresses and improves facial aging. Likewise, it has been increasingly obvious to specialists in facial rejuvenation that sagging is only a part of the aging process in the face and neck.  In fact, in many individuals, sagging may be less important than volume loss, unsightly skin, and overactive facial expression lines.

The term “nonsurgical facelift” is now used to describe any number and combinations of procedures which address volume loss, unsightly skin, and overactive expression lines.  Without the need for surgery, significant down time, significant pain, and the potential for significant complications, aesthetic physicians can provide a very significant improvement in facial, neck, Décolletage, and hand appearance.

Today, a nonsurgical facelift commonly involves a combination of the best procedures available to improve the skin, to improve facial volume, and to correct overactive expression lines.

Facial Rejuvenation
CRP Microchanneling
One very popular, all natural new procedure involves microchanneling and injection of Cytokine Rich Plasma (CRP) (also commonly referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).   Whether it is referred to as CRP or PRP, this procedure utilizes the ability of growth factors and peripheral stem cells taken from your own blood to stimulate existing stem cells to produce new collagen and other substances which improve facial skin appearance.  These powerful growth factors are micro-channeled (using a special device) back into your facial skin and superficial subcutaneous areas.

Voluma: An exciting new addition in the nonsurgical “War Against Facial Aging”

Recently, the FDA approved the use of the new hyaluronic acid filler to address upper mid facial aging and I have been very pleased with the results I’ve seen in my patients. Why is this important?

Facial plastic surgeons have increasingly become aware of the need to address the loss of cheek fullness in the malar region (high cheekbone area) and surrounding areas. As we lose the youthful curve of the “cheek mound”, the upper midface begins to hollow out leading to be familiar depressions under the eyes, tear trough depressions across the midcheek, and overall flatness throughout the midface. Loss of this fullness sends a strong visual message of aging, and implies an associated loss of vitality (just like the other previously recognized visual signs of aging in the brow regions, around the mouth, and along the jawlines).

So what are the advantages of this new product known as Juvederm Voluma?

Voluma is the only product currently FDA approved to address volume loss in the cheek area. It is also the longest lasting with an average contour improvement of 2 years. It is also a naturally occurring substance and has been used safely for more than 8 years in Europe and Canada.

So, is Voluma just another facial filler, or is it an exciting new addition to nonsurgical facial rejuvenation? So far, I can unequivocally say that Voluma provides immediate improvement previously unattainable in the upper midface and both my patients and I have found the results to be very exciting!
