What can I do about mid-face volume loss?

Dermal fillers, such as Voluma and Sculptra, are used to address volume loss in the mid-face by plumping aspects of the cheeks, including the apex, apple, and hollow. These dermal filler injections provide an extra lift to the mid-face to help restore a youthful complexion.

How do dermal fillers work?

The main component in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin responsible for hydrating and volumizing tissues by binding and attracting water. Due to aging, UV rays, and environmental stressors, we lose this binding process, which causes thinning, wrinkled, and tired-looking skin. Dermal fillers consist of a smooth gel that’s injected into the skin to add volume and rehydrate tissue, giving the face a fuller, younger complexion.

Am I an ideal candidate for dermal fillers?

Individuals experiencing wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss in the face are excellent candidates for dermal filler injections. Patients don’t typically experience allergic reactions to the latest dermal fillers since the ingredients are biocompatible. However, any injectable treatment poses a risk of infection. Consult with Dr. Olson about your medical history and personal concerns to help you determine if dermal fillers are right and safe for you.

How long do results last?

Patients who use dermal filler products, such as JUVÉDERM, to minimize fine lines and wrinkles can expect results to last up to 12 months. Voluma and Sculptra can provide increased volume in the mid-face for up to two years. Talk to Dr. Olsen about his recommendations and when to schedule follow-up or refresher appointments.
