Volume Lift™ on Long Island, NY

Restore Your Face’s Youthful “V” Shape on Long Island

Volume Lift™ at Marotta Med Spa offers a youthful, refreshed look without surgery, downtime or recovery time.

The natural aging process causes subtle changes to the face, slowly transforming it from a youthful “V” shape with fullness across the cheeks and a narrow, defined jawline to an inverted “V” with sunken eyes and cheeks that blend into a bulky jawline of loose and sagging skin. At Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, we offer a Volume Lift™ procedure designed to restore the beautiful “V” shape of your face using nonsurgical, minimally invasive injections of facial fillers. Our medical aesthetic providers have the expertise, experience and artistry necessary to customize a Volume Lift™ procedure specifically for you, based on the physical characteristics of your face as well as your aesthetic goals. They will assess your facial features, listen to your concerns and recommend an optimal plan to help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.

What is a Volume Lift™?

During a Volume Lift™ procedure, facial fillers are injected under the skin – focusing specifically on strategic areas in the temples, cheeks, and along the jawline – to add volume, improve hydration and plump the skin while also stimulating collagen production.

A Volume Lift™ is similar to a liquid facelift. It utilizes dermal filler injections to rejuvenate the face, paying particular attention to restoring the “V” shape of the face by using fillers in different locations artfully and strategically to recreate a more youthful contour.

Dermal fillers are made from various substances, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-l-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate. Each of these fillers has specific characteristics that make one better than the other to treat different concerns. Your aesthetic provider determines the type of filler that offers optimal results for your unique needs.

Am I an Ideal candidate for a Volume Lift™?

Healthy women and men who want to turn back the clock but aren’t quite ready to have surgery are excellent candidates for a Volume Lift™.

Patients under 50 often prefer this procedure because they can still benefit from nonsurgical techniques. In addition, because the Volume Lift™ is nonsurgical, it can be the perfect option for patients with health conditions that may limit their access to traditional surgical techniques requiring anesthesia, incisions, stitches, and a more extensive recovery period. However, the Volume Lift™ procedure is not recommended for people who have severe laxity in their jowls, deep grooves on their face, or drooping skin that would require a surgical neck lift or facelift for optimal results.

The Volume Lift™ Procedure

The Volume Lift™ procedure takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes, after which time you are free to return to work or your regular activities. A Volume Lift™ begins with applying a topical numbing anesthetic to the face to ease any potential discomfort you may feel during the procedure.

Next, your aesthetic provider will map out your face, determining precisely where the filler or fat injections will be placed. After your face is cleaned and the topical anesthetic sits for approximately 15 minutes, your injection expert will begin the injections. Fillers are then placed into areas of the face hollowed or sunken and need added volume. A thin needle delivers a precise amount of filler under the skin. Your aesthetic provider gently massages the injection site, evaluates the results, and either adds additional dermal filler to the spot or moves on to the next injection.

Recovery and downtime after a Volume Lift™

While the side effects will most likely be minor, remember to be extra gentle to the skin on your face in the days following your Volume Lift™.

Don’t scrub, massage, or rub your face, as you want it to settle in evenly and smoothly. If you choose to wear makeup, apply it gently. Avoid itching or picking at your face. Also, avoid activities that involve extreme heat or cold, such as sunbathing, saunas, hot tubs, hot wax, or winter sports that expose your face to the elements. You will receive post-treatment instructions, so it is essential to adhere to the guidelines for optimal healing.

Volume Lift™ Results

Your skin’s appearance will continue to improve over time as the body produces collagen in a healing response to the injections.

You will notice immediate results following your Volume Lift™, with hollows and lines filled and your skin looking smooth and youthful. You can expect to see noticeable enhancements to your face following your Volume Lift™, including:

  • Scars are filled
  • Lips are plumped
  • Jowls are eliminated
  • The jawline is defined
  • Volume to the cheeks is restored
  • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark circles under the eyes are eliminated
  • Sunken areas below the eyes look refreshed
  • Deep grooves and folds appear softer and smoother

To help maximize your results, follow our recommended skincare regimen, avoid sun exposure, wear sunscreen, don’t smoke, and minimize alcohol consumption. Keep in mind that your metabolism, facial characteristics, and lifestyle play a role in determining how long your fillers will last.
