As we age, it’s natural to experience loss of facial volume and skin elasticity. Besides seeing lines and wrinkles, you may start to notice a loss of fullness in your cheeks, which can give your face a hollow, sagging appearance. Although there are many dermal fillers on the market that can restore facial fullness and volume, Juvederm Voluma was the first that was specially formulated to enhance the cheeks while gently lifting the jowls to reveal a smoother jawline. We’re excited to offer Voluma in our facial aesthetics practices in Metropolitan Oasis Medical Aesthetic Center & Spa, and invite you to learn more about this long-lasting filler below.
Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler from the Juvederm family containing hyaluronic acid, a component made by the body naturally. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for transporting vital nutrients to your skin, increasing moisture levels, and maintaining the strength and elasticity of your skin. Your body makes less hyaluronic acid as you get older, causing you to lose structure and volume. Voluma is designed to counteract aging by restoring lost volume and gently lifting sagging skin.
Juvederm Voluma can:
• Replenish facial fullness
• Lift sagging skin to regain youthful contours
• Restore age-related loss of volume and shape to the cheeks
When you come into our office for your consultation, one of our expert providers will discuss your medical history and perform a full examination of your facial anatomy and overall skin health. After explaining the Juvederm Voluma procedure and discussing your aesthetic goals, your provider will create an individualized treatment plan that will meet your needs.
During a Juvederm Voluma treatment session, your provider will make a series of injections to your cheek area. To ensure Voluma is evenly distributed, your provider may gently massage the treatment area. The number of injections you require to achieve optimal results will be determined by your provider. After treatment, ice may be applied to reduce swelling and redness.
Immediately after treatment, you can expect an increase in facial volume and fullness and a gentle lifting of sagging skin around the cheek area. Since it is normal to experience some facial swelling around the treatment area, it may take up to two weeks for you to see full results. The results from Juvederm Voluma last up to two years, and you will only require touch-up treatments after this time to maintain your youthful contours.
