We all know that fine lines and wrinkles on our face can be caused by sun damage and natural loss of collagen in the skin due to the aging process. But did you know that there’s another culprit? Loss of the full roundness in the cheeks is diminished over time, and when cheeks lose volume, the whole face sags. Sagging can add years to the face, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC adds instant volume to the cheek area, correcting age-related volume loss. Plumping the apples of the cheeks gives your entire face a lift, as well as eradicating unsightly jowls.
The experienced medical professionals at LifeHope Healing Med Spa are ready to help you regain your youthful profile with the use of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®!
As with similar fillers, Juvederm Voluma® uses the active ingredient hyaluronic acid to add volume to facial tissue, as well as stimulate your body’s own natural production of collagen. (Collagen is the connective tissue that keeps skin plump and youthful-looking.) Because production of both hyaluronic acid and collagen decrease during the aging process, we see sagging and wrinkling of the skin. Juvederm Voluma® helps to correct this look.
Your provider will use a pen to mark the areas to be treated. After topical anesthetics are applied, the doctor, nurse, or physician’s assistant will inject Juvederm Voluma® into the targeted area. The area will then be lightly massaged to ensure even distribution and to reduce chance of swelling. From start to finish, this procedure usually takes between 15-60 minutes, depending upon which area is being treated, and the condition of the area. Because Juvederm Voluma® injections contain a small amount of lidocaine, any pain or discomfort felt during treatment will be minimal and transitory.
The biggest differences between Voluma and XC are:
-Texture. When viewing Juvederm Voluma® and Juvederm Voluma® XC side by side, the texture of XC is comparable to pudding, while Voluma® is more like Jello. The thicker texture of Voluma® is what gives it unique lifting power, and also leads to new receptive areas in the face.
-It’s all about placement. Voluma deep injection formula is designed to be injected and laid directly on top of the facial bones. When injected into the mid to upper cheek area or the chin (areas that are historically difficult to treat), it provides a volumizing and lifting effect. Competing brands Radiesse and Sculptra are other deep-injection options still used at various practices, but Voluma outlasts both of these.
-Look no further to find one of the longest-lasting fillers on the market...and the only one that’s proven to last up to two years! Because Juvederm Voluma® stimulates collagen production as well as adding volume, many patients discover that they require less treatment over time to maintain their lift and volume. This means fewer injections, and longer-lasting results.
Juvederm Voluma’s formula gives you instant increase in volume and smoothness, and since it’s the only one on the market with results lasting up to two years you’ll have more time to enjoy the fresh faced look you love.
