In the bliss of youth, and the busyness of our twenties and thirties, we don't pay much attention to the gradual passage of time and how it reveals itself on our bodies. We're too busy living life... and that's as it should be. However, there comes a time when it suddenly dawns on us that we really have no idea how our bodies will change. Our first clue might be the first wrinkle, or the first gray hair... no matter what that first harbinger of age is, it's bound to be a surprise.
Wrinkles and gray hair are the obvious signs of a life well-lived. Less obvious to most of us, and perhaps more surprising, is age-related volume loss in the midface area, a result of a gradual loss of bone mass and muscle atrophy. This can change the underlying structure of the face, making the face look as though it has somewhat collapsed. Rather than the strong or prominent cheekbones of youth, the face may appear to look flat, with little definition or the appearance of no cheekbones, and with sagging skin. For women, this change can appear faster than it does for men, as female hormones start to decrease, resulting in a subtle thinning of the facial fat tissue.
Disheartening, right? Welcome to aging.
The good news is that "aging" doesn't have to be a bad word! At Meadows Surgical Arts, we have a simple solution to this natural midface volume loss: an injectable filler of hyaluronic acid (which is naturally occurring in the body) called Voluma®.
This amazing FDA-approved product is used to add volume to the cheeks and cheekbone area, restoring a fresh-faced, more youthful look. It is one of the most robust fillers available, and is the only filler proven to last up to two years. Even better, if you treat your cheek areas again after two years, you will find that you need less product to achieve the desired results. And those results will be beautiful; they will look and feel natural, lifting the face without surgery and allowing you to look and feel like yourself again.
Youth, revisited. Your face can match your adventurous inner self that continues to embrace life and vitality!
