Dr. Alexander Rivkin in Los Angeles has developed a revolutionary non-surgical blepharoplasty called "Eye Lift" with Voluma. This has become a very popular procedure and is proven to instantly take years of unsightly aging off one's appearance making it the go-to alternative to conventional blepharoplasty.
Unlike traditional eyelid surgery, volume is actually replenished in the lower eyelid area instead of removed. Many patients complain about 'bags' or "dark circles" under their eyes but Dr. Rivkin says that the majority of people suffer from a loss (not overabundance) of fatty tissue under the eyes over time. It is this progressive hollowing of the under eye and cheek that makes people look tired and older than they are.
Dr. Rivkin's non-surgical eyelid procedure with Voluma is a safe, cost-effective alternative to traditional eyelid surgery and only takes on average, 30 minutes. It also avoids many of the inherent risks associated with traditional blepharoplasty including permanent damage to the eye, scarring, infection, and anesthesia complications. The only adverse effect of the procedure is occasional bruising, which resolves within a few days.
Voluma is the latest injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that rejuvenates the face by restoring the youthful volume that is lost with time. FDA approved last year, Voluma is part of the Juvederm product line. When Voluma filler is injected into the skin, immediate volumizing will occur, providing a youthful, rejuvenated appearance and results that last up to 2-3 years (this is several times longer duration than any other filler).
"I'm thrilled. Now with VolumaŽ, one of my most popular procedures is so much better. The effects last so much longer and the reversibility gives everyone great peace of mind!" said Dr. Rivkin.
