What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma is newest Hyaluronic Acid filler by Allergan, the makers of Juvederm XC and Botox. Voluma is specifically designed to restore volume loss in the mid-face region. Those areas include the cheeks and cheekbones. The results are instant and last up to 2 years.
Experiencing Volume Loss in Our Faces As We Age
We all want the perfect face: smooth, round contours, high cheekbones and a well defined jawline. Some call this combination of features the “triangle of beauty”. Unfortunately, as we age we experience facial fat loss and with the help of gravity those beautiful contours flatten out and head south.
The most noticeable change is in cheekbone definition. Historically this issue would have called for a skin tightening procedure of even surgery to “lift” this area, but not anymore. Voluma provides a similar lift, all with a simple injection. The change is subtle yet dramatic. Take a look at the pictures below, these are our patients and the after photos were taken immediately following their Voluma injections.
Why Voluma is Different from Other Facial Fillers
Voluma is the first filler formulated with lidocaine that is FDA approved to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Unlike other fillers commonly used to treat the midface (sculptra), Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. HA fillers are made from long chains of sugars that occur naturally in our skin.
Voluma is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process called Vycross that helps provide an excellent lifting capacity. This cross-linking helps to prevent the product from breaking down, reportedly the results last up to 2 years. And since it is an HA filler, it can be molded and shaped into the desired after injecting.
Who is a Candidate for Juvederm Voluma?
Virtually anyone with volume loss in their midface is a candidate for this product. As early as your 30’s you can begin to see a flattening of the cheek area. And some people just have naturally poorly defined cheekbones. Fillers are safe and results are immediate and results last up to 2 years.
What to Expect from Juvederm Voluma Facial Filler
We will apply a numbing cream on your skin for 10-15 minutes prior to beginning your injections. The actually injecting will take only about 15-30 minutes and it is virtually painless. Not only are we applying a topical numbing agent, Voluma is mixed with lidocaine to make for a pleasant, pain free experience. You will be able to see the transformation as it happens.
