AAY14:  JUVÉDERM®

Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

AAY15:  VOLUMA®

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. VOLUMA® is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.  This auction package includes VOLUMA® product and procedure by Dr. Suzie Kuhnen with Iowa Specialty Surgeons.
