On the other hand, volume loss problems, such as the kind you allude to, can be addressed with the use of volumizing fillers, such as Voluma XC and Restylane Lyft (which I would opt for in my Upper East Side Manhattan office for achieving elevation, providing support, enhancing projection and replacing lost volume) and Stylage XXL and Hyaluronica 2 (my choices in my Israel satellite facility, where a far a greater number of regulatory agency approved volumizing fillers are available). Residual fine lines can be addressed with superficial fillers, such as Belotero Balance (NY) and Teosyal Redensity II (Israel), both of which possess little tendency to give rise to the unwanted, bluish Tyndall Effect when injected superficially as is needed for smoothing fine lines.
I am not much of a fan of relatively expensive lasers, including fraxels or radiofrequency devices, finding these back far more by device manufacturer supported marketing hype than hard science.
You would be wise to consult a board certified aesthetic physician with experience and expertise in treating facial tone and texture problems. Make sure to ask to see his/her before and after photos.
