The Fall Of Pillow Face
PILLOW FACE – a term given to the hallmarked excess cheek fillers commonly seen by celebrities and women to plump out the midface.
Fillers in the cheek and mid-face must be used to enhance and plump rather than to enhance and disproportion.
At present the use of a product call ‘Voluma’ by Juvederm has completely revolutionised the practice of non-surgical facial volumisation.
Tracey Bell stated – ‘the ability to place a natural product within the cheek or mid-face – works as the foundation to non-surgical enhancement’
As we age the most common problem we exhibit is loss of bone, muscle and fat. By replacing fat using Voluma the face may be lifted, jowls reduced and facial harmony restored.
‘I always explain to my patients’ Tracey said ‘we do not suddenly get to 40 and grow excess skin – what simply happens is that the padding (bone, muscle, fat) decreases as we age leaving a ‘tablecloth’
The key to mid-face and cheek enhancement is to restore the correct amount of fat loss with the correct product such as Voluma. Women are presenting at a much younger age – recognising their problem and a good injector can identify and treat accordingly.
The big must have is ‘Deflate the Pillow Face’ diagnose what the patient requires and inject a product to replace rather than to enhance.
You could say it is Down Pillow required rather than a Bollster .
Natural enhancement, beautiful proportion is simply down to understanding the causes and effects of facial aging.
Voluma is a hyaluronic product produced by Juvederm Allegan.
The product is designed to be inserted into cheek, temple and jaw areas to produce fullness and lifting.
At Tracey Bell the product is injected using a blunt canula - reducing swelling bruising and post-operative complications.
Tracey Bell said - ‘Voluma is a product which produces consistently good results, and has a longevity of 15 months to 2 years due to its consistency. On placement the patient notices instant fullness but a natural result. The main area I use it is the cheek – but no pillow face ever - I simply enhance what is naturally missing -
