Volumising is a safe, easy and effective way to rejuvenate the face producing the “liquid facelift”.

Dermal fillers are used in this procedure without the need for surgery or general anaesthetic. This technique is becoming increasingly popular at Palm Clinic, as our clients discover its subtle yet highly flattering results.

Instead of pulling skin tighter (as in traditional facelifts), volumising simply helps to restore the fullness your skin used to have. This is why it looks so natural and why we call it the “liquid facelift”. Older clients also benefit hugely from the natural rejuvenation

Volumising is achieved by injecting dermal fillers into the fat space in areas where fat has been lost.

Who would benefit from volumising?

Volumising is ideal for those who feel their face is losing its youthful contours. As we age, we lose fat from beneath the skin of the face. (Facial bones also shrink, especially after having teeth removed). This loss of ‘underlying support’ means the skin can appear too big for the face. This is a common effect of ageing, which typically occurs from about 35 onwards.

You may notice:

  • hollows appearing where the face once had youthful curves
  • the fat disappearing from under the eyes, leaving a tired appearance
  • the cheeks deflating and drooping, accentuating the nasolabial folds (creases running from nose to chin)
  • the jaw may dip down beside the mouth (resulting in a sad or grumpy look)
What does the treatment involve?

Volumising is a simple, safe and non-invasive treatment. There is no need for general anaesthetic, or fat harvesting from other areas of the body.

At Palm Clinic, we use hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm Voluma and Ultra Plus for volumising. Hyaluronic acid is made from a natural carbohydrate that is already present in the body, and that simply decreases with age. This gel-like substance is injected deep under the skin, to the areas required. The effect is sometimes referred to as the pillow face or pillow cheeks as many celebrities have had this treatment a little overdone. Most New Zealand men and women prefer a more subtle natural look to their cheekbones. Volumising is a cost-effective alternative to surgery. Palm Clinic is happy to advise you on a personalised treatment plan that suits your needs and budget. 

What kind of results can I expect?

At Palm Clinic, we always aim to achieve natural-looking results – and this is particularly easy with volumising! Your face will look rejuvenated, refreshed and more youthful.

For a complete facial rejuvenation, some clients choose to combine volumising with fine line treatments (see our section on Dermal Fillers). You can layer these treatments together over a couple of sessions.

A volumising treatment lasts between 12-24 months, depending on the amount of filler used.
