Add a Natural Contour to the Cheeks
Many more patients are turning to non-surgical ways to rejuvenate their facial features. As we age, the loss of volume in our skin can add depressions in the skin, particularly in the cheeks. To get plumper cheeks, Dr. Hardesty offers injectable fillers, such as Voluma, to help patients look years younger. The team at Imagine Plastic Surgery help their patients regain their confidence with youthful cheek contours.
Voluma is an injectable filler from Juvederm. The gel-substance is made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring sugar in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid keeps moisture in the skin which helps with volume. The Voluma treatment will help make patients look years younger. Dr. Hardesty and his team at Imagine Plastic Surgery help their patients to regain confidence by adding volume to the cheeks.
