What is the VolumaLift™ Treatment?
As we age our facial skin and soft tissue undergoes the "3 Ds" of aging deterioration (wrinkles, pores, texture, brown and red pigmentation), descent (droopiness of the soft tissue) and deflation (loss of the above supportive fat buttresses). For skin deterioration, we have Botox, intradermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, and medical skin care products. For deflation, we have the VolumaLift™.
How is the VolumaLift treatment performed?
Your VolumaLift physician or health care professional will take an injectable gel product (Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, etc.) and inject specific amounts of the product into the specific fat buttress regions, restoring the 3 dimensional structure to the soft tissue envelope, plumping out, filling and lifting the overlying facial skin and restoring the attractive "fullness of youth."
How long does the VolumaLift™ take to perform?
Once you've finished your consultation and you and your physician or health care professional feel you are a VolumaLift™ candidate, the actual injectable facelift and volumization takes less than one hour to perform.
Is the VolumaLift™ painful?
The VolumaLift is not very painful. The skin is frozen with local anesthesia prior to the procedure and the needles are passed through only the frozen skin. The injectable gel used during a VolumaLift is deposited very deeply along the facial bones, where there are very few pain fibers. The injectable fillers are much more painful when injected into lines than when they are used deeply to contour and shape the face. There is virtually no pain after the VolumaLift is completed.
