Over the years, dermal fillers have become a very popular alternative to cosmetic surgical procedures, also known as a non-surgical facelift. In 2012, over 1.9 million soft tissue filler treatments were done; 1.4 million of those treatments were hyaluronic acid fillers, like Juvederm Voluma.
We all know as we age the natural production of collagen diminishes, well the same thing happens with our bodies natural production of hyaluronic acid or HA. The function of HA in our body is to provide sustenance for the skin, as well as, aid in preserving moisture and softness. Juvederm Voluma has become a popular dermal filler because it replaces the lost HA, which creates the volumizing effect.
This volumizing effect is so valuable because as we start to lose that elasticity, our face starts to look saggy and flat. This sagging and flatness is what causes the wrinkles to form around the nose and chin/jawline area. Juvederm Voluma works to reverse this effect by restoring the volume in these three main areas; the cheeks, cheekbones, chin and for adding definition in the jaw line.
The smooth gel is designed to be inserted into the deep dermis within the tissues, adding support to overlying skin and restoring facial contours. The technique used for administering Juvederm Voluma is essential for the success of the treatment, which is why all doctors must go through specific training to be authorized.
Juvederm Voluma has gained a great deal of popularity for a few different reasons. First of all it is the FDA approved filler that produces instant results, showing subtle, but visible signs of increased volume to restore a more youthful profile. The results from Voluma are very natural looking and patients are able to resume daily activities with little to no downtime. One of the biggest reasons that patients love Juvederm Voluma is because it is known to last up to 2 years. That makes Juvederm Voluma the longest lasting HA filler on the market.
If you are interested in simply addressing wrinkles, adding volume in the cheeks actually reduces them because the flattened tissue is what causes the wrinkles. Many patients noticed that their nasolabial folds (the “parenthesis” around your nose) are barely noticeable after a Voluma treatment. The effect of volumizing your cheeks and cheekbones gives a more rested and rejuvenated look. Subsequently Voluma also restore volume in the jaw line, bringing back a more youthful and chiseled jaw.
Doctors believe that the results of Juvederm Voluma are comparable to getting a facelift without having surgery. In fact, Realself.com reports that 67% of people who have used Juvederm, say it is worth it! With the long lasting, natural results of this 30 minute procedure, it’s easy to see why Juvederm Voluma is a preferred choice.
