Dr. Mark Taylor talks about the procedure on Studio 5

What can be done to correct this volume loss?

In the last few years, safe and effective facial fillers have been developed to allow instant correction of facial volume loss. Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Sculptra and Radiesse are the most well known products that have been developed and carefully tested to correct volume loss anywhere on the body.

How is the treatment performed?

Volume correction is an in-and-out clinical treatment. Topical numbing cream is applied to the areas in need of volumizing; local aesthetic may also be added to the fillers. Most patients experience only mild discomfort. Fillers are injected into the areas of volume loss giving immediate improvement. Pressure and ice are applied for ten to 15 minutes to decrease the risk of bruising or swelling. Make-up can be applied immediately after treatment.

What are the risks of volumizing treatments?

There is a small risk of bruising and swelling. Both of these side effects, however, are resolved in a matter of days without requiring further treatment. Extremely rare reactions to fillers include allergic reactions, lumps and uneven skin contouring, but all can be adjusted or treated by simple additional treatment.s In the skilled hands of the Gateway Aesthetic Institute professionals, significant side effects are extremely rare.

How much improvement can I expect to see with volumizing?

It is often possible to see greater improvement with facial volumizing treatments than one would see with a face lift – with no downtime, without the risk of an aggressive surgical procedure, and for less than half the price.

How can I find out if I’m a good candidate for a volumizing procedure?

Call the gateway aesthetic Institute & Laser Center and schedule a free consultation or email photos of yourself to and they will respond with an estimate of what they can do for you. Volumizing can immediately improve your appearance, so act now and look better by tomorrow.
