How to Create a Youthful Appearance? Add Natural Looking Volume

replacing or enhancing something that is already within us!

Why would someone have a filler? As our skin ages, it loses volumes and sags, producing unwanted lines and wrinkles. Anyone who is experiencing these changes is a candidate for a filler.

And that brings us to the main concept today, volumization. While it used to be thought that correction of wrinkles required injection directly into the lines, we no understand this differently. We know that because of the loss of volume in the face, we must replace that. My preferred filler for that purpose is Juvederm┬« and it works very well. As volume is replaced, lines and wrinkles lessen and the face takes on a more youthful appearance. 

Thus we have it, volumization!
