As we get older, our face is usually one of the first places to truly show our age. Years of sun exposure, fluctuations in weight, and many other factors can lead to a loss in volume along with fine lines and wrinkles. Many people are already familiar with dermal fillers. These injectables help restore that loss of volume and turn back the hands of time on the face.
“”I am so amazed at the difference in this product! I have used many, many different cosmetics in my life and this is far superior to any I’ve ever used. Thank you for introducing me to Jane Iredale.”
Juvederm is one of the most popular dermal fillers used in our office. It is traditionally used for the nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines. In addition to traditional forms of Juvederm, we now offer Juvederm Voluma. It is the first FDA-approved injectable that is designed specifically to add volume to three different areas of the cheek: the apex, the apple, and the hollow. It is a hyaluronic volumizer that can help fill out thinning or hollow cheek areas.
Juvederm Voluma can help patients restore more youthful contours to the cheeks and enhance the overall appearance of the face. Results have been proven to last for as many as two years. Patients who opt for Juvederm Voluma treatments will enjoy a softer shape to the face.
The unique formula and design of Juvederm Voluma means it is smoother than other hyaluronic acid volumizers available. The product is injected easily and evenly for a smooth, natural look. It also contains up to .3% of lidocaine to help make the entire process easy and comfortable.
Patients who wish to regain the higher cheek bones and facial curves of younger days will benefit from Juvederm Voluma.
Following injections, patients will be advised to avoid wearing makeup for at least 12 hours. If possible, sun exposure should also be avoided for two weeks after treatment. Side effects may include some swelling, tenderness, or bruising near the injection sites. These are temporary and will go away. After 12 hours any minor skin discoloration can be covered with make-up.
Just because you are getting older, doesn’t mean that you have to look it. With injectables like Juvederm Voluma, you can restore lost contours and features to your face. Call us today to schedule a personal consultation and find out if Juvederm Voluma is for you!
