We all know that wrinkles are a sign of age, as is sagging skin. An often overlooked issue relating to aging skin is the loss of volume and plumpness in areas such as the cheeks. Fullness in the face is a sign of glowing, youthful skin. When that volume is lost, you are often left with a sunken and stern appearance, looking years older than your chronological age.
Fortunately, there is a cosmetic treatment meant specifically to address lost volume. Juvederm Voluma® is that treatment. It’s what’s known as a dermal filler and is the only FDA-approved gel injectable filler specifically meant to increase facial volume in the cheeks, cheekbones and chin areas.
About Juvederm Voluma®
The main ingredient in Juvederm Voluma® is hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar found in young and healthy skin that acts as a cushioning agent, delivers nutrients and absorbs water. As we age, this substance begins to gradually decrease. Injections of Juvederm Voluma® replace lost hyaluronic acid and add volume to target areas. An added benefit is that these injections stimulate the production of collagen, a natural building block of healthy skin. Results will continue to improve over time and can last as long as two years.
Juvederm Voluma® is a versatile cosmetic treatment because it can be performed safely on skin of all colors and types. If you want to add volume or lost fat to areas of the face like your cheeks or chin, chances are good that you may be an ideal candidate for this treatment. The best candidates are people in good overall health with realistic expectations.
What to Expect
Juvederm Voluma® is a convenient and relatively simple procedure, taking only a few minutes to inject the hyaluronic gel to the target area. You can expect a treatment to last between 15 and 40 minutes, depending on the areas you need to treat.
Results should be immediate and will improve over time as collagen growth is regenerated. You may require additional treatments, but this depends on the kind of results you desire. A customized treatment plan can be created for you during your consultation.
