Youthful skin looks radiant, plump, and firm not just because it hasn’t endured a significant amount of sun damage and aging but, primarily, because it is supported with an abundance of chemicals. Specifically, youthful skin has collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Each of these chemicals provides unique support to the skin. After age 20, the body stops making sufficient amounts of these chemicals and it doesn’t take long to start noticing the effects of the deficit. Fortunately, we’ve got a plethora of nonsurgical and surgical treatments to manage the signs of aging. In our office near San Jose and Los Gatos, Juvederm Voluma XC is one of them. Here, we discuss what you may want to know about this product if you’re ready to address the signs of aging on your face.
About Juvederm® Voluma XC
One of several Juvederm dermal fillers, Voluma XC has been developed specifically for the cheek area. Doctors now use it for benefits beyond cheek augmentation, as well. The reason Voluma is ideal for the cheeks is because it is made with larger particles of hyaluronic acid set in a gel base. These larger particles give the product more density, which translates into more structure beneath the skin. Voluma is different from other fillers in that it is injected into deeper layers of the skin for natural-looking contouring.
Benefits of Juvederm Voluma
Juvederm Voluma is one of several dermal fillers we use in our office, and one with a number of benefits. These include:
- The thick gel smooths, lifts, and contours the cheek area.
- The provider inserts the gel at the right point or points on the cheek to achieve the best results.
- Rounder, higher cheekbones subtly pull the skin upward, which can diminish the appearance of mild jowls.
- Results of Voluma treatment can last up to two years.
Dermal filler treatment is popular for several reasons. A visit takes less than an hour, even including the consultation with the provider. Results of fillers like Voluma are immediate. This enables the provider to use just the right amount to achieve natural-looking results. Side effects are typically limited to minor redness and swelling, so patients need not take time off to recover from their treatment.
