Your facial volume is a critical component of a beautiful and youthful-looking face. Cheeks are a prominent feature of the face, and loss of cheek volume can make you look significantly older than you actually are.
As you age, there is a loss of cheek volume over time. This decline in volume is due to the steady decrease of the hyaluronic acid in the tissues, along with a loss of tissue from the facial fat layer. Juvederm Voluma is the perfect treatment for mid-face volume loss around the cheek area.
Voluma for Gaunt Cheeks
Voluma is a specifically designed injectable filler that restores lost facial volume around the cheek area. It is commonly used to fix aged-looking cheeks and make skin look younger.
This product consists of synthetic hyaluronic acid that adds cheek volume. It is engineered with a technique called Vycross that allows Voluma to last for a long time in the tissues. The injections also trigger the production of collagen in your skin to improve skin quality.
Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved filler that has high satisfactory reviews. It has been approved in 72 countries to restore volume to cheeks.
This smooth gel that has a consistent texture and flows easily into the skin, giving you a youthful appearance. It contains lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that makes injections less painful.
How Does Voluma Work?
Voluma is injected below the facial muscles on top of the cheekbones to provide volume and support the dermis and epidermis. The loss of hyaluronic acid makes your face look hollow and older. The Voluma treatment replenishes the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid and amplifies the volume.
The Voluma Treatment Procedure
Before the injection procedure, Dr. Bared will ask you specific questions regarding your medical history and any allergies or medical conditions you may have. During this consultation, you will be able to discuss your expectations for the procedure. Dr. Bared will examine your skin to ensure that the treatment is the best way to achieve your desired results.
During the treatment, your cheeks will be cleaned and then marked as a guideline for the injections. The Juvederm Voluma injections will be administered in small amounts into hollow regions of your cheeks until the desired volume is achieved. The areas that were injected will be massaged to distribute the substance evenly.
To reduce swelling, ice may be applied. The whole procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes, making it incredibly convenient.
Within the first 24 hours, any physical activity that strains your facial muscles needs to be avoided. Minimizing your exposure to the sun or heat is advisable. While individual results may vary, the results of Voluma can last up to two years.
