What Westlake Village area patients can expect from Voluma injections
It is no surprise that as we age, our skin changes in many ways. The skin can become thinner and looser, resulting in the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This is caused by a reduction in collagen production and even gravity which can cause us to look older than we truly feel. While many patients believe the only way to address this issue is with plastic surgery treatments; such as a face lift, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Patients interested in a non-invasive solution to their aging skin may want to discuss with a dermatologist in Westlake Village the benefits of Voluma injections at Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D.
Juvederm Voluma is a cosmetic filler comprised of hyaluronic acid. HA is an ingredient in fillers that can help by binding water;resulting in a firmer, more voluminous look to the skin. When injected directly into fine lines and wrinkles, it can dramatically improve the youthfulness by reducing the depth of the imperfections and smoothing out the skin.
Juvederm Voluma is just one of many dermal fillers available by Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D. of the Westlake Village area. However, it is the only one specifically approved by the FDA for use in the cheeks to lift and contour. It is thicker and is meant for adding more volume than other fillersbetter suited specifically for the fine lines and wrinkles. What’s great about injectables; such as Juvederm Voluma, is that they can also be used in conjunction with other treatments available at our practice including Botox.
Jvuederm Voluma is the perfect solution for patients who are worried about the sunken in appearance of the cheek area due to the loss of collagen.

Panagotacos, M.D. and speak to a professional about the ways in which they can achieve a more youthful appearance quickly and easily with cosmetic injectables.
