Over time, the natural volume in our cheeks decreases, leaving skin looking sunken and saggy. While other areas of the face also play a role, loss of volume in the cheeks is a major sign of aging as it exaggerates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you have noticed less volume in your cheeks, Juvederm Voluma may be for you
What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma is the first and only injectable to be approved by the FDA to add volume to the cheek region. This revolutionary dermal filler is designed to augment the cheeks while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, giving the face increased volume and an overall more youthful appearance.
How does Voluma work?
As the skin begins to age, the natural collagen and elastin levels drop, which contributes to skin sagging and loss of firmness. Facial fat also begins to break down, which creates hollow-looking cheeks. Juvederm Voluma is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the cells of the body which helps give your skin a firm, youthful appearance. Voluma injects a special hyaluronic gel into the cheeks, instantly providing volume and firmness to the area.
What does a Voluma procedure look like?
Juvederm Voluma is thicker than most dermal fillers as it takes more gel to fully plump up the cheek region. The filler is injected into the target area with a tiny needle, immediately adding noticeable amounts of volume. Juvederm Voluma XC also contains lidocaine, which helps alleviate any mild discomfort that could be associated with the injections. The entire procedure lasts less than an hour, and no downtime is required.
What results can I expect with Voluma?
Typically, patients notice results with Voluma immediately. The filler is injected below the surface of the skin and instantly plumps up the apples of the cheeks, providing all of the benefits of a facelift without the invasive surgery.
How long does Voluma last?
Results from a Juvederm Voluma injection may last up to two years, making it one of the longest lasting dermal fillers on the market.
