Juvederm Voluma is the only hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler which has been FDA approved to add volume to the apples of the cheeks. With natural-looking results that last up to two years, Juvederm Voluma can help you to look younger and feel more confident.
HOW DOES JUVEDERM VOLUMA WORK?
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the skin and is responsible for maintaining the skin’s moisture. As we age, levels of hyaluronic acid decrease, and we tend to naturally lose collagen and fat beneath the skin. These changes are often particularly noticeable in the cheeks, which leads to the appearance of sagging skin.
Juvederm Voluma contains hyaluronic acid. When injected under the surface of the skin, it replenishes existing hyaluronic acid levels and helps tissues to hold onto moisture. Skin becomes plumper and firmer, and the natural contours of the cheeks are restored.
Compared to other Juvederm products, Voluma contains both low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. This allows it to deliver an excellent lift to the skin, while providing long-lasting results.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
A smooth-flowing injection is used to administer Voluma, which allows the injector full control over the placement of the filler. This ensures the cheeks are contoured precisely to the patient’s requirements.
It takes around 10 to 15 minutes for Juvederm Voluma to be administered. The formula contains Lidocaine, which will anesthetize the injection site and minimize discomfort. Results will be seen almost instantly.
WHAT IS RECOVERY FROM THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
It’s normal for the skin to feel a little tight and swollen for a couple of days after Juvederm Voluma injections, but this quickly subsides. The injection site should not feel painful.
Exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours after treatment, and patients should avoid rubbing or massaging the injected areas. This will prevent the filler from moving around. Other than these factors, there is no downtime associated with the procedure and most patients can return to work and their usual routines immediately afterward.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH JUVEDERM VOLUMA?
The cheeks are the most popular area for treatment with Voluma, but it could also be used to add volume to sensitive areas around the nose and mouth.
HOW LONG WILL JUVEDERM VOLUMA LAST?
Like all other hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers, the effects of Juvederm Voluma aren’t permanent. Results tend to last between 9 months and a year, but for some, the effects may last for up to two years. The more optimum the correction achieved, the longer the results are likely to last.
