Great Voluma Candidate
You’ve got great features. Non-surgical rejuvenation would be great to enhance and revive your appearance. I hope that helps.
Voluma for volume loss
Voluma helps to add volume to areas in the face where it has been lost due to age, weight loss, etc. The amount of product needed to get the desired outcome will vary by patient and will include factors such as skin elasticity, volume lost, desired result, and budget. Fillers, such as Juvederm can be used around the mouth to help lift the corners up. The sagging skin under the neck can be treated with skin tightening procedures to give a firmer, more youthful appearance. There is much to learn about each of these treatments. I would suggest a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can listen to your goals and work with you to plan which treatments would be best.

Skin Rejuvenation (non-surgical) - Combination of Treatments Needed
The best treatment for skin rejuvenation and prevention depends upon an individual’s skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure, and overall health. In order to give you an accurate treatment plan, a consultation is required to properly assess your skin. I recommend a healthy lifestyle: a diet high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and fish; eight to ten hours of sleep nightly; limiting alcohol intake other than the occasional glass of red wine; and regular exercise.
An important step for all skin types is sun protection including the use of daily sunscreen, sun hats and sunglasses, all of which help prevent aging and sunburns.
When it comes to rejuvenating and prevention treatments, a combination of treatments are available including cosmeceuticals (skin care products including ZO® Skin Health or ZO® Medical, Skinceuticals® or Glo-Minerals®), neurotoxins (Botox®, Xeomin®), dermal fillers (Restylane®, Juvederm®, Esthelis®, Belotero®, Emervel®, Radiesse®), skin resurfacing procedures (laser resurfacing with CO2 laser, Er:YAG laser, Fraxel DUAL®, PicoSure® FOCUS Lens Array or OBAGI® controlled depth chemical peel) and other devices such as Ultherapy® can be used.
These are advanced techniques so be sure to get an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon consultation for recommendations and treatment options.

Is Voluma for You?
There have been a number of questions on this site from patients with misplaced filler who get undesired results. Choose your practitioner carefully. Use this and the official Voluma website and also ask around.
It's a wonderful product. I have it my face and I love the natural look.
Voluma for mid face lift
Voluma is my favorite product to re-define the mid face and list the sagging cheeks and jowls. I find a combination of fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma and non-surgical skin tightening with Thermage is best in this area. For the best non-surgical cosmetic results please consult a a board certified dermatologist who is an expert with facial fillers.
