What is Juvéderm Voluma?
Juvéderm Voluma is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can add volume to sunken or hollow cheeks and diminish scars and frown lines. If you suffer from age-related volume loss in the face, treatments can help to create a more youthful appearance. As with other injectables in the Juvéderm family of products, Voluma contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the body and can temporarily plump up the cheek area and under the eyes. Voluma also features the numbing agent, lidocaine. Treatments are painless and can provide the fullness that your face may be lacking due to age.
How does Juvéderm Voluma work?
HA is important because it transports essential nutrients to your skin–helping to increase moisture levels and maintain elasticity and strength in the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid and, as a result, volume and structure are lost. Dermal filler injections can help to restore HA levels, providing volume to the cheek area and lifting any sagging skin.*
What can I expect during the treatments?
We encourage you to schedule a consultation so that we can determine if Voluma is right for you. If it is, during your appointment, we will make a series of injections into the areas around your cheeks. To ensure that hyaluronic acid is evenly distributed, we may gently massage the treated area. The number of required injections will vary from patient to patient, depending on the amount of volume that needs to be restored. After all of the injections are made, we will provide you with tips on how to reduce any redness and swelling.
What can I expect from the results?
Treatments are best for age-related volume loss that occurs between the ages of 35-65. Since the cheek area does not see as much movement as other muscles in the face, the filler may last longer than if it were to be injected in a different area of the face. Voluma has been shown to have long-lasting effects as long as a couple of years.*
