It has been believed that the primary sign of aging is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face due to skin laxity. However, this is not the only effect that may occur and make patients look and feel old. Dr. Gerald Bock of California Skin & Laser Center in the Stockton area may suggest patients consider the loss of volume which may also occur due to the loss of collagen. After patients turn 30, they begin to lose a small amount of collagen naturally every year. This reduces the volume of the skin especially in areas of the cheeks where definition is extremely important to maintain a youthful look.
The FDA approved a treatment called Voluma in 2013. Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid and the Vycross™ system that ensure instant filling and lifting of the cheeks. Patients who are struggling with the appearance of sunken cheeks may find this particular treatment to be extremely desirable when seeking anti-aging solutions. Juvederm Voluma is performed by a specialist such as Dr. Gerald Bock to reverse the signs of aging due to volume loss. Many patients find that it can improve a tired, gaunt look that often plagues those who are dealing with volume loss in the cheeks. All this is done with a specialized injection that is inserted precisely into the face for an improved appearance and enhancement of the natural definition.
While there are many hyaluronic acid fillers on the market, none other can compare to the effectiveness of Juvederm Voluma when it comes to replacing the lost collagen in the face. Lifting and contouring of the cheeks and cheekbones is done with the assistance of a Voluma specialist who is well aware of the ways in which this treatment can enhance one’s appearance. Patients in their 30’s and older are great candidates for Juvederm Voluma injections and are encouraged to contact our team to learn more. At California Skin & Laser Center, we believe everyone is eligible for a treatment for their aging skin. Contact Dr. Gerald Bock today to schedule an evaluation.
