Juvederm Voluma


Experts say that our skin dictates how we look. How is that possible? Our skin has this innate nature to hold moisture which is essential for dermis firmness, and pliability. Without the moistness, our skin will look saggy, dry and old. The Ultraviolet rays from the sun are one of the major factors that affect the skin’s elasticity which is most of the time, difficult to restore.

Dermatologists are very grateful because recently, Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) approved the Juvederm Voluma (a hyaluronic acid based filler) that is intended for the cheeks. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists are using this substance for a particular type of skin related surgery for over the years and waiting for it to be considered by the FDA. Now, it has been approved by the FDA due to its efficacy and safety.

The solution is different from Juvederm Ultra Plus because Voluma is intended for deeper injection. Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid based gel filler purposed for cheek enhancement and renews its shape back to original non-damage, plump, and smooth cheeks.

During and after the procedure

Initially before the treatment, your doctor will analyze the structure of your cheek zone. According to plastic surgeon most people are losing volume on their mid-face region. Based on research and studies, almost 85% of individuals manifesting asymmetric face and the other 15% almost had it, because it is impossible to have a well-formed face. Hence, with the help of surgeons or dermatologists with the Juvederm Voluma, it can be achieved.

After the initial cheek assessment, your doctor will apply lidocaine or a numbing cream so that you won’t feel the injection. The target of the injection is to touch your bones because the gel should be injected just right above the bone. You will be asked to lie down in a reclining chair to start the procedure. Depending on your doctor’s assessment, you will receive at least three injections per cheeks with a total of .5 ml of the gel or more. The gel will be injected into the zygomatic (cheekbone) area and below the cheek part to give a natural look.

The procedure will take approximately 10 minutes, and you can see the effect right away. No, any special aftercare process will not need to be done because you can even go out for a night out afterward. Your doctor may advise you not to massage the area or put deep pressure on your skin for the gel not to migrate to other parts of the face.

Based on the report, most people who have had the treatment experienced the effect for almost two years. There are no side effects nor any irritation reported. Ask your doctor about it.
