Voluma Helps Sagging Faces
It sounds like you have a number of issues that are troubling you. Luckily, they are all treatable:
· Acne can be minimized or resolved with lasers and light therapy, as well as topical and/or oral medications.
· Acne scarred-skin can be resurfaced with lasers and/or chemical peels; deep scars can be filled with hyaluronic-acid fillers or the more permanent Bellafill, which is FDA approved for use on acne scars and can last for several years.
· Lost facial volume can be restored with Voluma, which will help ameliorate the sagging that is your primary concern.
Please schedule a consult so that you and a board-certified dermatologist can come up with a treatment plan that will give you the glowing, healthy, uplifted skin you desire.
I would recommend you discuss your issue with a board certified dermatologist.
Saggy Face -- Overall Help Needed
And, by the way, that's the definition of "holistic" -- it doesn't mean treatment with non-western medicines -- Holism is looking at you as a person and not either one or a series of medical issues.
A good dermatologist who does both medical and cosmetic treatments is the answer to your question.
Find one that you are comfortable with and create an overall treatment plan with them.

Facial volume loss
It seems that you are struggling with 2 problems.
1. Acne prone skin with surface irregularity.
The foundation of a harmonious face is excellent skin care. I would highly recommend implementing a skin care regimen that helps you achieve less acne and improves your skin texture. The use of sunscreen all year round is also a MUST.
2. Facial volume loss
This can be addressed with HA fillers such as Voluma to return volume to area that may have lost volume over time.
Together, these regimens can provide excellent results without surgical procedures!
