Over time, features in the lower part of your face may become less firm, lose volume, or develop lines and deep wrinkles. Addressing these changes around the cheeks, chin, and jawline can significantly rejuvenate your appearance.
VOLIFT® is one of the newest additions to JUVÉDERM’s line of hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is already present in your body, one that helps retain moisture and gives volume and firmness to your skin. JUVÉDERM’s products use different compositions of hyaluronic acid to work on different layers of the skin and to offer varying lengths of effectiveness.
VOLIFT provides patients with an extremely smooth and natural-feeling filler. At Natural Image OC, Dr. Lenore Sikorski uses the product to re-contour the cheeks, chin, and jawline and to treat deep depressions in the skin, such as the smile lines between the nose and edges of the lips. The result is less noticeable wrinkles and fuller, more youthful features.
The Benefits of VOLIFT
VOLIFT offers natural-looking restoration and can be a very effective option if used in the right situation. Here are some of the reasons Dr. Sikorski may recommend the filler for your needs:
Non-surgical approach. If you aren’t yet a good candidate for surgery or want to put off a procedure for a while, VOLIFT offers non-invasive treatment. There’s no downtime, so you can see results sooner and without a major recovery.
Greater comfort. VOLIFT includes lidocaine, a common numbing medication. This helps to decrease sensitivity in the area of treatment.
Natural look and feel. VOLIFT is an extremely smooth product. This allows Dr. Sikorski to inject it in small amounts and at a fine-detail level, creating a uniform transition between your facial features.
Duration. VOLIFT can give patients a more youthful appearance for up to 15 months. This means that retreatments aren’t as frequent and maintaining the results is more convenient.
Your Experience with VOLIFT
During your initial consultation with Dr. Sikorski, you will have a chance to talk about the concerns you have and the improvements that you would like to see. Some patients are interested in the prospect of more youthful and well-defined features but want to learn all that they can before they move forward with treatment. This type of patient education is a hallmark of Dr. Sikorski’s practice. As part of your visit:
- Dr. Sikorski will examine your face, skin, and features, including your cheeks, chin, and jawline.
- She will identify whether you are a good candidate for facial fillers and, if so, whether VOLIFT is right for you. Most patients who receive the treatment have begun showing small lines and wrinkles in the lower face or have features that have become flatter and less full.
- Dr. Sikorski will talk about VOLIFT’s effects and the treatment process, and she will answer any questions you might have.
Some of our patients can have VOLIFT injections the same day as their initial consultation. Others may have medical conditions that require further testing before they receive care. As part of the treatment:
- Our practice can provide a variety of comfort measures, including numbing cream and ice.
- Dr. Sikorski will introduce VOLIFT using an extremely-fine-gauge needle.
- You should feel only a small amount of pressure during this process.
Following your treatment, you may have some redness or swelling at the sites of injection, but you should be able to return to your normal daily activities. Our team can provide additional post-treatment instructions and will be available to answer your questions after you receive care.
VOLIFT works immediately to restore the contour and fullness of the lower face and to reduce lines and wrinkles. With its lasting effects, you can enjoy a younger-looking, natural-looking appearance for up to 15 months before retreatment.
