Facial Volume

Over time, one of the changes that can occur in our bodies is a loss of volume in certain areas, particularly the face. With a treatment to add facial volume, these specific areas can be addressed with versatile, individualised treatment steps.

Facial volume treatment can also address fine lines, wrinkles, and the size and shape of the lips. It can be personalised to consider symmetry and creating a lift of the skin in certain areas. After a consultation with Dr. Laniewski, you will have a personalised treatment plan that can be designed to add volume in the areas you wish to address.

After a treatment taking about 30 minutes to complete, the results of the treatment are typically instant and can last for up to six to 12 months.

During your consultation with Dr. Laniewski

Treatment to add facial volume can be focused on various areas of the face and can involve adding different amounts of volume to specific areas. Your consultation with Dr. Laniewski will help him to understand what you want to achieve, and to put together a personalised plan that considers all of your individual needs.

You can learn more about what the treatment involves, how it works, what to expect and what you need to know in terms of aftercare and results.

Target areas

The treatment may be performed on many areas of the face, including:

  • Cheekbones
  • Lips
  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Temple
  • Nose

The steps of the treatment can also be designed to reduce the visibility of:

  • Lip lines above and below the lips
  • Nasolabial folds (between the nose and mouth lines)
  • Glabella lines (between the eyebrows)
  • Tear troughs (dark under-eye circles)
  • Crows feet
  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical scarring
  • Wrinkles and facial lines

Who is Eligible for The Treatment?

Treatment to add volume to the face will need to be performed on suitable candidates. Suitable candidates should not be pregnant or breastfeeding, and not have certain medical conditions that may be contraindications to the treatment. During a consultation with Dr. Laniewski, you will discuss what is involved in the treatment in much further detail, as well as have your treatment area assessed. You will be able to discuss any individual factors that may influence your suitability for the treatment and determine if the treatment is an appropriate option for you. Assessing your suitability for the treatment beforehand will help to prevent side effects, and help you to decide if the treatment aligns with your goals. Suitable candidates should have realistic expectations for the treatment.

Are there Risks to The Treatment?

Dr. Laniewski will discuss the possible risks of the treatment during your consultation. He will also explain how these can be minimised and how they will need to be addressed in the case that they do occur.

The common risks associated with treatment to add volume to the face are bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, itching and rashes. Rare, more severe complications can occur, such as skin necrosis, stroke or blindness. The chances of this happening are extremely low and can be minimised by performing the treatment at an experienced clinic. Dr. Laniewski is an experienced and trained specialist surgeon, and although the procedure to add volume to the face is non-surgical, it will be important that it is performed by an individual who understands facial anatomy and is highly trained in the area.

Relatively common side effects should subside after your treatment, and can typically be managed by following your provided aftercare steps. Some side effects will need further attention to address, which Dr. Laniewski can discuss before your treatment.

The Results

Results for treatment to add facial volume will vary from person to person, as everyone will have a personalised treatment plan.

Generally, the results are instantly noticeable and can last for six to 12 months after a treatment. Although results are instantly noticeable, initial side effects like swelling and bruising may need time to subside before results can be fully visible. It may be recommended that you have a touch-up treatment once or twice a year to maintain your original results, but the frequency of maintenance treatments may be different for each candidate. Two weeks after your treatment, Dr. Laniewski will arrange a follow-up appointment to check on your progress. If you do have any concerns after your treatment during these first two weeks, please contact our team.

Cost of Facial Volume Treatment

Each treatment is individualised, with different treatment areas, skin types and variables to be considered. You will have a personalised treatment plan, which will help to calculate the costs of your treatment.

To get your customised treatment plan, book an appointment with Dr. Laniewski, and he will discuss the price of your treatment.

How long until I see my results?

A treatment to add facial volume will typically produce instant results, so you will see your results that same day. After seven to 10 days, initial side effects such as swelling or bruising should subside, which will also help to make your results fully visible.

Will treatment to add facial volume cause the skin to stretch?

The skin in the specific treatment area where volume has been added will need to stretch slightly, but this should not be noticeable should you decide to stop undergoing the treatment in future. Only slight stretching should occur, and the skin should typically retract in the area if the volume has subsided.

Can adding volume in certain areas help to fill surgery scars?

Scars that can result in lost tissue may be filled in with a treatment that adds volume to the area. The treatment can very specifically target areas, so hollow scarring may be addressed precisely. If this is a treatment you may be interested in, you will be able to discuss how the treatment can be performed in more detail during your consultation.

What should I do to prepare for my treatment?

To avoid bruising, patients are advised for the 24 hours after the treatment to avoid physical activity and large amounts of alcohol. Certain medications or supplements should also not be taken just before the procedure, typically about one week before the treatment.
