What kind of filling/how many syringes needed and which areas are priority? (Photos)

Type of filler and areas
Hello,Good question. While two photos don't always tell the entire picture, I would recommend 3-d augmentation of your cheeks with Voluma which will add back lost Zygoma (cheek) volume. It will also lift the naso-labial folds, but you may need additional HA filler in the folds around the mouth as the Voluma will not lift the lower (marionette) lines nor turn up the angles of the month. After the Voluma, I would also consider filler into the tear trough (naso-jugal folds) depending on how the Voluma is injected.
How many syringes will I need?
The optimal fill volume ratio for patient's seeking to volumize their face is dependent on many factors. The skin turgor, underlying boney resorption of the facial super structure. It is important to remember the adage, "Beauty is not skin deep, it is BONE deep". When we age, the boney support to our face involutes and thus in addition to volumetric decrease from atrophy of soft tissue, we have volume loss from bone depletion. Full assessment of what it will take to revolumize one's face is best done in person with tactile and in depth analysis of health history, smoking history, diet and overall BMI. Another important consideration is how the product is injected. Practitioners who utilize the latest in technology employ blunt needles to minimize bruising and a distractor to minimize pain.
