Nowadays, aesthetic medicine specialists do not consider rejuvenation without analyzing the shifting volumes of the patient’s face.
In fact, a young face is somewhat triangular, cheekbones are prominent and the chin is pointed. With age, the volume of the cheekbones tends to sink into the lower cheeks and to increase the severe and sad appearance of a face.
Working on volumes to restore youthfulness to a face therefore makes perfect sense. We can use an extremely volumizing hyaluronic acid to correct ptosis, enhance volume in the cheekbones and improve atrophy in the cheeks.
Volumetric rejuvenation or Voluma consists in restoring facial volume and contours.
Indications for volumetric remodeling
There are products, like Voluma®, available on the market which are injected in the areas where we wish to increase volume and make it possible to achieve natural results that last 24 months. As a result, by restoring volume in the cheekbones and cheeks we will correct slight ptosis naturally. We can also correct hollow temples with this product.
Hyaluronic acid is the injectable anti-wrinkle product that together with botulinum toxin has most revolutionized aesthetic medicine. It is distinctive in that it is reabsorbed by the body over the months following the injection. In fact, it is an essential substance that is naturally present in the skin and helps to hydrate it. Perfectly tolerated and resorbable, it does not require any prior tests and can therefore be injected in the first session. It has a revitalizing effect and stimulates collagen synthesis, giving the face a real radiance boost.
What happens at a facial remodeling session?
The doctor will anesthetize the injected area (just like at the dentist’s). So you will feel nothing during the injection. The product will then be injected using a cannula, that is a needle with a round tip which significantly reduces the risk of bruising. In half an hour at the most, you will regain your facial volume and you will leave visibly younger-looking! Please note that some redness may appear at the injection sites but can be easily covered with a good coverage foundation.
What results can be expected?
Straight after the treatment, patients generally notice that their facial contours appear fuller and rounder, which gives them a smooth and younger look. Most patients also regain the facial contours of their youth.
How much do facial remodeling injections cost?
The price of facial remodeling injections varies according to various factors and, specifically, the type of product used, the work to be carried out and the areas to be treated. At Lazeo, we only use Juvederm Voluma for this treatment, which is the leading product in terms of quality. As a guide, prices for a hyaluronic acid injection starts at €380.
