Could You Benefit from Juvederm Voluma Treatment?
The cheek area is instrumental in giving the face youthful, attractive contours. This part of the face is contoured by bone structure and also by fatty tissue that lies on top of the bone. As we age, the mid-face loses volume in the way of fat and hyaluronic acid. The fatty tissue that gives the cheeks nice curvature weakens and descends down the face. Hyaluronic acid is a saccharide that binds to water molecules to plump and smooth the skin. Without sufficient amounts of this substance, the mid-face becomes relatively flat and nondescript. If you’re starting to notice these changes in your face, you may be a perfect candidate for Juvederm Voluma.
What Is Juvederm Voluma?
Voluma is one of the many Juvederm dermal fillers available today. Juvederm fillers are all made with hyaluronic acid particles suspended in a gel base. Each particle of hyaluronic acid can hold hundreds of times its own weight by binding to water molecules. Each Juvederm hyaluronic acid formulation is made with specifically-sized particles to achieve particular results. Of them all, Voluma is the most viscous of this family of fillers. This means its hyaluronic acid particles are larger and it has more of a structural characteristic to it. As it should, because Voluma was made for the cheek area, where it must restore the skin’s foundation.
How it Works
Juvederm Voluma works immediately upon insertion into the deeper layers of the skin. Due to its thicker consistency, this filler works best farther beneath the skin’s surface. Here, it can round out the cheeks and give them height without making them appear unnaturally puffy. In addition to contouring the cheeks, Voluma can also be inserted into the tear troughs between the upper cheek and the under eye skin. Here, the filler can eliminate or significantly reduce the appearance of under eye bags.
There are no serious risks involved with Juvederm treatment because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body. Patients enjoy gratifying results with zero downtime. Though slight redness and swelling may occur, these are usually subtle enough to go unnoticed. After Juvederm Voluma injections, the results of treatment can last up to two years.
