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." />

Holding the State Accountable - 10/31/13

Many of the story ideas we investigate come through tips from the public. Part of my job is sifting through those phone calls and emails to see what we as reporters can hone in on.

About a month ago, a tip came in that wait times for the State's abuse and neglect hotline were incredibly high. Could seem like nothing, right? After looking into the issue, I found the people who actually run the hotline had requested more money to get the wait times down.

So who is in control of the money and why are they alright with it being so high? I'll show you what happens when we take the issue to the people in charge, and get explanations on how a lack of interest is directly impacting the lives of hundreds of thousands of Texans. Probably people you know.

I'm finishing up the final interviews for this story. See it live on KEYE Tuesday at 10pm.
