Watching your face lose volume and shape as you age can be difficult. What was once plump and youthful may now be displaying wrinkles.
Fortunately, Madhav Devani, MD, and our team at Ross Bridge Medical Center in Hoover, Alabama, can help you get that youthful appearance you desire. We offer a collection of Juvéderm® injectables, each formulated to target specific areas and needs. Whether you’re looking to plump up your lips or contour your cheekbones, we have the perfect filler for you.
Why we lose facial volume
When you’re young, the fatty tissue in your face is evenly distributed, giving you that fresh-faced look. As the years go by, that fatty tissue clumps up, loses volume, and moves down.
This is in part due to your body producing less hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that keeps your skin hydrated and supple. It’s also due to a decrease in the production of elastin and collagen, both of which help support the skin.
Types of fillers
There are many types of fillers, and each one uses different ingredients to satisfy different goals. Here are a few substances popular fillers contain and what they do:
As mentioned, hyaluronic acid helps keep skin hydrated and supple.
This naturally occurring substance is found in bones, and it can help stimulate collagen production.
This biocompatible synthetic substance can help rebuild collagen.
This biocompatible synthetic substance sits under the skin and helps provide support.

Restoring facial volume with fillers
Our office uses the Juvéderm collection of fillers to provide beautiful, natural-looking results. This family of fillers can be used in multiple areas of the face, including the cheeks, lips, and chin. For treating age-related volume loss, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC can restore volume to the cheek area, while Juvéderm Ultra XC can plump the lips and smooth parentheses lines.
Treatments involving injectables are quick and easy, taking only 15-60 minutes. Furthermore, there’s little to no downtime, so you can meet up with friends and show off your rejuvenated appearance as soon as you leave. Results can be seen immediately and can last up to two years, depending on which formula is used.
If a renewed sense of confidence and a refreshed, younger look is what you’re after, we can help you get that. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Ross Bridge Medical Center today.
