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." />

Investigating a Danger on the Roads - 11/07/13

Bettie Cross, KEYE TV Reporter

Every once in a while I see a TV news story that has such an impact I'm compelled to see if a similar problem exists right here in Austin. That's what happened after I watched a story put together by a team of journalists at Minnesota TV station, KARE.

A grieving mom shared the painful story of losing her husband and daughter in the hope it would prevent other towing accidents. An empty flatbed trailer unhitched from a pickup, crossed the centerline and plowed into the family's SUV. The very preventable cause of the accident was a missing clip from the hitch pin. One of the two required safety chains was also missing.

Photojournalist Kevin Riley and I are investigating the dangers we face on the road because of improperly attached trailers. You'll see the devastating impact of one big bump in the road. We'll also show you the simple steps that will keep drivers and passengers safe.

Join us Tuesday at 10 p.m. to hear from an Austin victim how one careless moment can have dramatic consequences.
