The pictures below are from my first experience having Juverderm Voluma injected in 2014
I often get asked what products and procedures really work for anti-again. Unless you want to go under the knife for plastic surgery, I suggest investing in good aesthetic procedures with a doctor you trust and medical grade skincare. Today, let me share my recent experience with Juvederm Voluma and Botox at Dr. Lynley McAnalley’s office.
Yes, I get Botox to soften my wrinkles on my forehead and crows feet around my eyes. But recently I tried Juvederm Voluma to plump up some areas on my face that are starting to look a little thin. Here’s a hint when choosing your doctors. Look at them. Do they practice what they preach? Mine do! I mean look at Dr. Lynley K. McAnalley. Super gorgeous and up on all the latest products. She only does injectables so she is proficient and a perfectionist with the needle. And that is exactly what you want. Aside from that, Lynley and I have known each other for years through our kids for over 20 years! We did Hyer cafeteria duty together and were Highland Belle moms together. All that to say, I trust her completely with advising me on what I need to keep this face going.
Juvederm Voluma can be used in many areas of the face and has been on the market for many years. It is a viscous hyaluronic acid filler that can rebuild structure to the face while giving a soft feel and a natural look. As we lose facial fat and dermal thickness, our facial tissues tend to sag down and in causing sagging and fullness centrally and a void in the lateral aspects of our face. During this treatment, Juvederm Voluma was injected into the lateral cheekbone where it meets the hairline. This lifts the cheek all the way back to the hairline as it was positioned in younger days helping reshape the face to a younger, yet natural, shape.
A cannula was used to safely and comfortably add volume in front of the ear, which also gives lift off of the heavier central face to reshape the face to a younger shape. This procedure helps lift aging, sagging tissue collecting centrally around the nose and the mouth corners. The lift is up and out, which takes heaviness off the central face and reshapes the face to a younger oval shape instead of the aging squared-off shape. It improves jowels and adds softness over the lateral cheek bone. Patients are surprised to see that their faces actually look thinner centrally after adding volume laterally. AMAZING!
As with many procedures performed by Dr. McAnalley, this one also makes one look younger but not different. Natural results are key. Most people desire to look like their younger selves without looking like they have had anything done. This procedure achieves that goal. Dr. McAnalley uses numbing ointment and ice to make her patients as comfortable as possible.
The first picture in this post is when I walked in to Dr. McAnalley’s office. The last picture is me two weeks after having Botox and Juvederm Voluma (while enjoying weekend brunch with Pete). The products are in full effect and I am loving the difference! The procedure does not hurt and I was in and out of her office in 30 minutes. She gives you an ice pack for the injections and you can not feel the needle going in. There is no down time and I ran errands after seeing Lynley. Notice in the AFTER picture how my wrinkles are less noticeable and my cheeks look plump and healthy? Just a little goes a long way to a youthful look. And, notice how great Dr. McAnalley looks! I just say “I’ll have what you’re having” when I walk in. I know a facelift is somewhere in my future. Until then, I plan to ward off age with injectables.
Call 214-692-8844 for your appointment. Consultations are complimentary. I highly recommend Dr. Lynley McAnalley for any injectable procedure.

Injected directly into overactive facial muscles, in very low doses, it relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. This causes the skin to become smooth and unwrinkled. About Juvederm Voluma JUVEDERM VOLUMA is a synthetic hyaluronic acids and are FDA-approved to improve the appearance of facial lines and folds. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our skin to provide volume and fullness. Hyaluronic acid also binds water molecules, which furthers the youthful plumpness it provides our skin. As we age, our skin loses some of its hyaluronic acid as well as soft tissue volume. This loss of volume and hydration causes our skin to appear sunken and wrinkled. Synthetic hyaluronic acids such as Restyalne, Perlane, and Juvederm can mimic the benefits that our own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid provides adding volume and thickness to our skin.
