Aging of the Face

Published on August 1, 2016

Aric Park M.D.

It happens to all of us. One day we look in the mirror and see wrinkles and lines forming where there used to be smooth firm skin. Why does this happen? As we age, changes occur in the skin, fat, muscle and bone which causes the cosmetic appearance of our faces to mature. Whereas in youth our faces may be visualized as a firm, ripe grape, with time we become deflated raisins.

In the past, our options for fighting this change were limited to short lived collagen injections or surgery but in the last decade a myriad of new products have emerged that have changed our views on how to combat this aging change. One of the newest, most exciting products on the market is Voluma ™. This is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid product on the market. In clinical studies at 2 years, 60% of the product remained. It is excellent for deep revolumization and refilling of depleted fat pockets as it lifts and rejuvenates the cheeks. Restoration of smooth curves and fullness can make a significant change in the aged appearance of your face. If you are interested please come in for a visit to discuss how fillers and volume can be used to turn back the hands of time.
