Aging occurs as a product of collagen fibers and bones becoming weak and thin; This leads to a loss of volume causing fat to shift to other areas and leads to puffiness around our eyes, jaw, and neck.
This volume loss creates a tired and sad facial expression; the decrease of collagen in your cheeks accentuates the formation of deep lines around your mouth and chin. With age, your cheeks are one of the most affected areas from volume loss, and its loss of function results in a drop in the skin involving the jaw. Even more, collagen loss is further accelerated by prolonged sun exposure and other environmental factors.
Fortunately, this loss of volume can be replaced with hyaluronic acid, a substance produced by our own body to keep skin volume, brightness, and give it an appearance of softness and moisture as it attracts water.
At Orchidia Med Spa, Dr. Young and Dr. Cuberos use the most recognized hyaluronic acid facial fillers that are in the cosmetic market: Restylane and Juvaderm.
This is an excellent option to restore symmetry and youth to your face while avoiding costly surgery and its complications. Hyaluronic acid fillers also have an advantage over fat fillers because they do not require downtime from our daily activities for recovery.
Changes are visible immediately and even improve over days as hyaluronic acid attracts water, providing a filling effect. One of the areas to initially treat are the cheeks as they help to give symmetry to our face and give a lifting effect, improving the lines that form around the corners of our mouth for a more youthful appearance. They can also be used to improve the contour of our lips.
The amount of hyaluronic acid used per patient varies, as volume loss varies from person to person.
