More about Juvederm Voluma
Juvederm Voluma is a soft tissue filler derived from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a compound that is present in the skin, but levels of HA decline as you age, resulting in loss of elasticity and deflation of the cheeks and other areas of the face. Juvederm Voluma is also infused with lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that helps to minimize discomfort.
Injections with Juvederm Voluma are safe and virtually painless. It is a simple procedure that takes only a few minutes, so you can walk in and out of the physician’s office in under 30 minutes.After treatment there is very little bruising, and no downtime is required.
What areas of the face does it work on?
Juvederm Voluma is FDA cleared to correct midface lift. It is therefore the ideal remedy for hollow cheeks or sagging skin in the midface. Juvederm Voluma is specially formulated to volumize the cheek area, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
What results should you Expect?
Patients notice improvement in the appearance of their face immediately after treatment. Juvederm Voluma makes the face look more refreshed and youthful, and the results are smooth and natural looking. The effects can last up to 2 years, which is a lot longer than many of the other soft tissue fillers available.
