We lose the volume in our cheeks with age. Volume loss in the cheek area can make our faces look sunken and gaunt. Juvederm Voluma XC is a cosmetic solution that lifts and contours our cheeks non-surgically. It provides quick results and requires little downtime for recovery as it doesn’t involve surgery.
The injectable treatment contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is a compound naturally found in our bodies. Extremely safe to use, the dermal filler comes approved for usage by the FDA. If you do not want to go under the knife but would like a way to revive the lost youthfulness in your face, then Juvederm Voluma is the treatment for you.
How Does Voluma Work?
Voluma injectable contains Hyaluronic Acid, or HA, as discussed above. HA occurs in our body naturally and contributes towards skin structure and elasticity.
With age, our bodies begin to lose HA content. As a result, our skin begins to sag, making us look old and wrinkly. Hyaluronic Acid promotes collagen production in our bodies.
So, when Voluma is injected into our bodies, it urges collagen and HA acid production, helping firm up our skin and give it better contour.
Is There Anything I Should Do Before the Treatment?
If you are interested in having Voluma treatment performed on you, it is best to have an in-depth consultation with a dermatologist beforehand. Discuss what you seek from the treatment, and the medical professional will help you balance your expectations accordingly.
The Voluma Treatment
Voluma is injected into the deep dermis of your skin. However, it doesn’t hurt as much a procedure like this should as the treatment has been formulated with an anesthetizing agent, Lidocaine.
Your treatment supervisor may also choose to numb your facial area besides this, to minimize any discomfort felt during the treatment. The Voluma injectable treatment is an outpatient procedure and can be carried out within a short duration of time.
What Can I Expect After the Voluma Procedure?
Your doctor will advise you regarding certain precautionary measures you must follow after having Voluma performed. These are:
• You must stay away from direct sunlight, sauna, or steam for at least two weeks following the treatment.
• You should not apply any makeup onto your face for a minimum of 12 hours after having the procedure performed.
• You should allow the treatment area to rest, as much as possible, over the next seven days.
What to Expect After Your Voluma Treatment?
The Juvederm Voluma adds a young and supple facial appearance by reviving hollow, volume-less cheeks. Your face looks naturally vibrant and softer. The results obtained from Voluma treatment are long-lasting.
You may enjoy your youthful appearance as begotten from Voluma, for as long as two years. Additionally, the injectable is safe to use on a variety of skin types.
If your hollow cheeks have been causing you concern, you could contact a Juvederm treatment provider and discuss your options. The treatment is cosmetic in nature and is not covered by health insurance.
The cost of the procedure depends on the kind of filler used and which part of the world you are in. If you have youth to gain, is any price too high?
