Voluma

Voluma is the right product to deliver the "lift" in the cheek/mid-face that you seek. Schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss.

#Voluma or #PRP?

Dear hazel85:

   PRP woul be used to enhance the skin tone and improve the turbot of the skin, or to treat any scars or brown spots on the face.  Voluma would provide the lift you are looking for.

All the best,   Dr. Clark

Volume Loss and Lifting Skin with Voluma

Voluma is one of the best ways to lift the cheeks and provide you with volume and rejuvenate the face.  I love PRP with microneedling to rejuvenate the skin and also complement the Voluma and inject the wrinkles.  Please consult a specialist.  Best, Dr. Green

Cheek volume loss

your best bet is to undergo volume enhancement with Voluma/Radiesse/Juvederm/Restylane- vs undergoing PRP. PRP is great for skin rejuvenation, so it will  improve the tone, texture and hydration of the skin. The other fillers mentioned above will enhance the volume and lift the cheeks, giving you the results you desire.

Voluma

Thank you for your question. We prefer Voluma for its ability to restore fullness to the cheeks and mid-face. I suggest you next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. Best wishes,

Voluma or PRP to enhance my skin and give it more volume and lift

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. In order to obtain a nice tissue lift with volume enhancement I would favor Voluma over PRP. Volume can offer predictable, natural, and safe results when administered by an experienced injector. Hope this helps.

Volume and Lift For Cheeks: Voluma or PRP or Both?

hazel85  Thank you for your questions and photos.  An in person consultation is necessary to determine your best course of action.  There are multiple fillers that can help improve your cheek definition:
  1. Bellafill ( long term)
  2. Voluma
  3. Restylane Lift
  4. Radiesse
  5. Body fat
All have the  remote possibility of  lumps. Placed correctly none should worsen your tear trough area. PRP can be utilized  simultaneous with all but alone would not  give a,lift.  PRP is a wonderful enhancement that will improve skin tone.

Volume for cheeks

PRP is not going to give volume. It will at most rejuvenate the skin somewhat and probably won't have much effect. Voluma in the hands of a skilled injector won't give lumps and should enhance the cheeks. It is very safe to use. I prefer Restylane Lyft now because it is less expensive and has a better lifting ability than Voluma. See link.
