Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler that is FDA approved for correcting age-related volume loss in the face, thereby creating a younger appearance.
As part of the normal aging process, human beings lose bone mass and tissue fat from the face, resulting in a loss of facial volume that causes the skin to sag, the cheeks to become hollow, and the face to become flatter, losing its full, youthful shape. A smooth injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm Voluma is thicker than Juvéderm, allowing it to better lift sagging skin and fill hollowed areas.
At the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, Dr. Amerian and Dr. Anterasian have performed thousands of dermal filler procedures since these injections first obtained FDA approval in 2003. As a result, we have considerable experience and a personal approach to the use of products like Juvéderm Voluma. The use of facial injectables is much like sculpting, so the results are very dependent upon the skill of the injector.
Done correctly, a Juvéderm Voluma treatment looks natural without any indication that you have had a cosmetic procedure. The added volume and lift simply create a refreshed look that reverses the signs of aging.
Candidates for Juvederm Voluma Injections
Juvéderm Voluma is especially effective for patients with wrinkles, folds, sagging skin, and hollowing of the cheek, cheekbone, or chin areas.
Since the facial skin already contains hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm Voluma is safe for all skin types and skin tones.
How Juvederm Voluma Works
Juvéderm Voluma is placed deeper than many other dermal fillers. This allows the filler to actually support the structure of the skin and restore normal facial contours. When properly placed, Juvéderm Voluma can also be used to enhance the cheekbones of women whose cheeks have lost some of their youthful prominence with the passage of time.
What to Expect During a Juvederm Voluma Treatment
First, a complete examination of your face – both at rest and while moving – must be conducted to determine areas where increased volume would enhance facial appearance. The doctors must also determine the areas where Juvéderm Voluma should not be placed. The treatment cannot begin until after this planning is completed.
The treatment consists of a series of easily tolerated injections containing small quantities of Juvéderm Voluma and an anesthetic for comfort.
Results of Juvederm Voluma Facial Filler
Juvéderm Voluma effectively corrects cheek shape and facial contours, enhancing cheekbones and lifting the face for a more appealing look. Results from Juvéderm Voluma treatment last for 18-24 months – longer than the duration of most fillers.
You can resume normal daily activities immediately after leaving the office.
