Many patients who visit American Skin Institute are concerned about the loss of facial volume, which presents itself in the form of hollowness around the cheeks and a sagging skin. This is a common problem caused by aging, wherein the fatty tissues under the skin become depleted; causing the skin to sag and the cheeks appear droopy. Further, this biological change is compounded by decreased elasticity of the skin, which can no longer fight the pull of gravity effectively.
These combined effects of loss of volume and elasticity can significantly affect the shape of the face, and create the appearance of premature aging.
Facial Sculpting with Juvederm Voluma
At American Skin Institute we’ve helped many patients reduce the appearance of wrinkles and bring more volume to the cheeks and chin using the Juvederm Voluma facial filler. This gel-like substance is one of several fillers manufactured by Juvederm, and was developed specifically for treatments of the cheeks and areas around the mouth.
Juvederm Voluma is formulated to deliver fast results, with patients seeing improvements in treated areas right after the procedure. However, administering this dermal filler is not as simple as just sticking a needle in the skin.
The Juvederm Voluma Injection Process
For best results, American Skin Institute providers will first carefully study the shape of your face to see where it could benefit from increased volume. This is vital, because all of your facial features work in unison and a certain balance must be preserved for the results to appear natural. Once this is complete, Juvederm Voluma is gently injected in small increments throughout the treatment area. This distribution of injections helps increase the cheek volume with smooth transitions, and creates results that look natural.
Throughout your treatment, you will feel very comfortable and will experience very little or no discomfort at all. This is because the Juvederm Voluma filler was especially formulated with lidocaine; a local anesthetic.
Also, needles used for Juvederm Voluma injections are small, which allows for gentler injections on the face. Further, the size of the needle helps prevent any major bruising or irritation after the procedure. And because the procedure is fast, many American Skin Institute patients have been able to complete it during their lunch break; without the need to take time off work.
Juvederm Voluma Results
The results of Juvederm Voluma injections can be quite stunning. Your American Skin Institute provider can give the cheeks a more vertical direction often associated with youthfulness, with results appearing immediately. In turn, the boost in the cheek volume has a skin tightening effect which can soften the appearance of nasolabial folds.
In addition to its immediate results, many American Skin Institute patients have come to appreciate the long lasting effects of Juvederm Voluma. When performed properly, by a trained medical provider, Juvederm Voluma results can last for as long as two years – making this treatment very cost efficient and aesthetically durable.
Working with Expert Providers
Because Juvederm Voluma results last a long time, it is vital for anyone considering this procedure to work with a highly experienced professional who knows the full effects of these injections. Using this dermal filler incorrectly can easily create an unnatural appearance; with the cheeks being too big, or with one cheek being bigger than the other.
At American Skin Institute we have extensive experience with administering Juvederm Voluma in a safe manner, with aesthetically pleasing results that look natural. If you’re considering this treatment, please contact us and we’ll help you schedule an appointment at the most convenient time for you.
