Throughout the natural aging process, our skin starts to lose elasticity. This can cause your cheeks to sag and make you appear older than you are. If you’re looking to restore lost volume in your cheeks, Juvederm Voluma® could be right for you.
What Is Juvederm Voluma®?
Juvederm Voluma® is a gel that can be injected into the patient’s cheek area. The purpose of Juvederm Voluma® is to lift the patient’s skin while also restoring any volume, which may have been lost through the natural aging process. Juvederm Voluma® is made from a modified version of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring complex sugar found within the human body.
Juvederm Voluma® is the first and only non-surgical, FDA-approved option that works by providing instant correction to loss of volume within the cheek region for patients who are 21 years of age or older. Juvederm Voluma® has been utilized throughout Europe since 2005, and has been approved for cosmetic use in more than 60 countries.
How Is Juvederm Voluma® Used In Treatment?
Juvederm Voluma® is specifically designed to restore mid-face or cheek volume loss. It can also be utilized to help bring about a more youthful-looking curve in the higher region of a woman’s cheekbone. Juvederm Voluma® has been successfully utilized for the purpose of volumizing, re-contouring, and lifting the jawline and face.
How Does Juvederm Voluma® Differ From Other Dermal Fillers?
Juvederm Voluma® was specifically created for the purpose of lifting and filling the cheeks and mid-face. It uses an advanced technology called Vycross, which generates a smooth gel that can flow consistently and easily. This cross-linking technology produces both the fill and lift unique to Voluma and the long-lasting effect of the sculpting process.
How Long Will Juvederm Voluma® Last?
Juvederm Voluma® can last for up to two years. It’s also important to know that there is some evidence supporting the idea that hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm Voluma® can help stimulate collagen production in the body. This boost in collagen can generate a longer period of improvement in the skin. It’s also important to note that factors such as body chemistry, weight, and health can lengthen or shorten the duration of Juvederm Voluma®’s efficacy.
