uvederm Voluma is a soft tissue filler designed to correct volume loss in the cheeks. It is the only FDA approved injectable gel that targets and instantly adds volume to the cheek area. Juvederm Voluma is the latest in a family of fine fillers that work in sync to reduce the signs of facial aging and promote smoother skin and a youthful appearance.
Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that is synthesized in the laboratory, without the use of animal components. It lasts longer than other HA fillers and provides significant lift, because of the special cross-linking that is done between the HA molecules. It is also formulated with lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that enhances comfort during treatment.
The Juvederm Voluma difference
Loss of midface volume can significantly change the appearance of the face, but Juvederm Voluma can restore fullness. Juvederm is injected deep into the cheek area, where it works to contour and lift the cheeks. It also stimulates collagen levels in the body. This also contributes to the long-lasting effects seen with Juvederm Voluma, as collagen improves skin elasticity and firmness.
Juvederm Voluma treatment
The treatment is virtually painless, as very small needles are used to perform the procedure. Most patients tolerate Juvederm Voluma very well, and there is no downtime and very few side-effects. Some patients may experience swelling, redness, or bruising, but this normally disappears within a few days.
Treatment with Juvederm Voluma is especially beneficial for individuals with age-related volume loss in the cheeks, who are not considering surgery. Due to its thicker consistency and lifting properties, it is not recommended for use in any other area of the body.
Juvederm Voluma is approved for use in patients over the age of 21, and the results can last up to 2 years.
