Facial volume restoration is a method that requires a careful and comprehensive assessment of the face.
In my daily practice I meet many patients who focus their attention on a single wrinkle. In these cases, it would be a technical error to insist on introducing a lot of material to lift it completely, because the result would be unnatural and very visible (like in the case of celebrities who have clearly had plastic surgery). Very often, in fact, the correction of such imperfection can be solved indirectly, i.e. by restoring the volume of an adjacent skin sector.
Lately, it has been proven with certainty that the human face is made up of numerous defined skin and fat areas. Each of these sectors ages in a standardized way, losing skin tone and fat volume in different phases and ways.
Therefore, by recognizing the exact cause of the blemish, it is very easy to turn an already aged face into a natural and fresh one.
Correction using fillers is carried out with different molecules. The molecular structure of the product changes depending on the size of the volume to be corrected (e.g. wrinkles around the mouth or the cheekbones). The fillers used are Allergan Juvederm ultra and Juvederm with Vycross technology (Voluma, Volift, Volbella) or Galderma Restylane with NASHA technology (Restylane Lift, Restylane, Restylane Vital). It can be associated with other methods (such as Botox, Laser, Suspension threads) to ensure a natural result.
It is a reversible and repeatable treatment usually performed once a year. In smokers or patients who love tanning, the results are less lasting due to the increased presence of free radicals, which degrade the hyaluronic acid faster.
