Have you noticed that your cheeks or midface has flattened or begun to sag as you age? This natural loss of volume in the face occurs when fatty tissue and collagen stores deplete. For some, these changes can cause a tired, frail, or unhealthy appearance. Thankfully, Juvéderm® Voluma™ is an effective solution to help restore a more youthful appearance, without invasive surgery or downtime.
What is Juvéderm® Voluma™?
Juvéderm® Voluma™ is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to add volume under the skin to provide contour and lift to the cheek area. Over time, lines and wrinkles develop on the face, including nasolabial folds, or the lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. These folds, combined with a loss of facial volume, can emphasize a tired or aged look. With Juvéderm® Voluma™, you can achieve the youthful, refreshed appearance you desire.
Who is a Candidate for Juvéderm® Voluma™?
Individuals who are at least 21 years old who are looking to restore lost mid-facial volume or give their cheeks a boost can benefit from This dermal filler. However, we do not advise this treatment for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have an active infection at the treatment site. To see if you are a good candidate for this treatment option, contact Elite Aesthetics and Wellness today to schedule your consultation appointment.
What to Expect During Your Juvéderm® Voluma™ Treatment?
To begin your Juvéderm® Voluma™ treatment, your injector will cleanse the treatment area, as well as apply a topical numbing cream to make your experience more comfortable. Then, a small needle will be used to inject the Juvéderm® Voluma™ into the midface area, adding volume where it is needed. You can expect your treatment session to take about 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on the number of injections needed.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ Results
After your dermal filler treatment, you may experience temporary side effects such as swelling, tenderness, lumps, bruising, or itching at the treatment site. You can feel free to apply makeup to help camouflage any bruising if desired. While there is no downtime required, we do advise that you avoid strenuous activity for 48 hours after your injections to ensure the best results.
While some results may be immediately noticeable, your final results should be seen after 1-2 weeks and can last up to 2 years. Please feel free to reach out to our office regarding any post-treatment questions.
