With the antiaging market more robust than ever — anticipated to rake in over $216 billion by the year 2021 world wide — it’s safe to say men and women today aren’t choosing to simply sit back and age gracefully. They are embracing today’s options for aging more youthfully. And facial fillers (or dermal fillers) are a highly popular treatment that is helping folks reclaim a younger-looking and smoother, more supple face.

As collagen — the protein in our bodies that helps keep our skin looking smooth and young — declines with age, and moisture levels drop in our skin, our faces start to look wrinkled, crepey and saggy. Over the years, skin becomes thin and fragile. Facial filler, however, can combat these signs of aging.

We all want to put our best face forward. Though in years past, men and women had limited treatment options when it came to reducing the signs of aging on their faces — facelifts being the primary option. Today, facial filler is a viable choice for doing just that.

Dr. Andrew Lofman, MD, uses Juvederm Voluma in his metro Detroit cosmetic surgery office and has seen outstanding and very natural-looking results on his patients. Juvederm Voluma is a facial filler made of hyaluronic acid, a component naturally in the body. This widely used filler is FDA-approved to replenish volume in the cheek area — a common place that shows telltale signs of age.

The amount of facial filler needed will vary from person to person. On average, one syringe of Juvederm Voluma starts around $850…a far cry from a facelift, which can cost upwards of $8,000-$10,000.


Another fantastic benefit of Juvederm Voluma is not only that it non-surgically treats aging skin, the results are nearly immediate and there is little to no down time.

Following your treatment, you will see areas of volume loss restored, with full results developing in about two weeks. Typically the only side effect (if any at all) is mild swelling or bruising at the injection site. However, applying ice to the area after the treatment helps. Further, to reduce your risk of bruising, we ask patients to stop any blood-thinning medications (if possible) and vitamins or supplements two weeks prior to their treatment, as these can increase your risk of bruising. If bruising occurs, it can be easily covered up with makeup.

The fact that facial filler is a non-surgical way to take years off the face in a natural way is what has made it so popular.


If you’re looking for an experienced plastic surgeon to talk to you about facial filler, Dr. Andrew is a highly experienced surgeon and esthetic injector.

Dr. Andrew is keenly aware of the aesthetic nature of the human face (and body) and the correct placement of facial filler. His results speak for themselves and have garnered him a plethora of referrals from happy patients.

Having served the metro Detroit area’s cosmetic needs for over 10 years, Dr. Andrew is known for his caring demeanor and top-notch skills, and always putting his patients’ safety and comfort first.
