Dr. David Cogburn of Carolina Mountain Dermatology said, "It's really not gravity that's making us sag; it's volumetric loss of the skin, muscle and bone."

For Evans, facial injections of the newly approved Voluma proved to be the answer. Unlike some filler, it's a naturally occuring acid in gel form.

"This one actually lifts the tissue up so you can put it into the skin, beneath the skin and muscle in some cases and lift the entire area," Dr. Cogburn said.

The Voluma procedure is quick, typically it takes less than 15 minutes. Patients leave seeing results the same day.

"Right after he did the injection, I could tell the difference," Evans said. "It made me feel better. It accomplished what I wanted to accomplish. I felt more youthful, like the mother of a 6-year-old."

Voluma may need to be repeated in several months. It is FDA approved, but insurance typically won't cover the cost which can top $2500." />

Rachel's Blog: Do You Know What You're Eating? - 02/03/14

I get told all the time by my co-workers that my eating habits are pretty bad. I get lectures to stop drinking so much diet Soda and candy.  And yes, I know it's bad for me and maybe need to dig a little deeper into what I'm consuming. That is a major reason I decided to do some research.

Do you ever wonder what's in the food you're eating? Packages always have terms on them that say things like "natural flavoring."

That got me thinking -- what does that mean and how do you know if what you're putting in your body is safe?

I am interviewing health professionals and nutritionists with Seton Medical Center to break down what is in your food, and the top 10 things you probably don't even realize you're eating.

You may second guess some of your favorite foods. The story is Thursday at 10.
