Plump and Contour Your Cheeks With Juvederm Voluma
Age-related volume loss can have a drastic impact on your overall appearance. Volume loss in the face happens for a variety of reasons, such as less collagen production and the displacement of fat pads in the cheeks. If you aren’t happy with your appearance because of age-related volume loss, then you may want to consider Juvederm Voluma treatments at Xanadu Med Spa in Fort Collins, CO.
What Is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma is part of the Juvederm family of dermal fillers that are designed specifically to correct moderate volume loss in the mid-face or the area between the eyes and the jawline. Volume loss in the mid-face is one of the most obvious visible signs of aging since this volume loss gives way to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly nasolabial folds.
This Juvederm filler has a slightly dense gel-like texture formulated with hyaluronic acid. As an HA filler, this treatment is considered safe and well-tolerated by most people. Essentially, this filler uses hyaluronic acid to fill in and plump up areas of the face that have lost volume, which reverses the effects of time on your appearance.
What Can This Filler Help With?
First and foremost, this filler is designed as an anti-aging regimen. Age-related volume loss can be difficult to treat because most fillers and skin tightening treatments can’t restore hollow areas of the face. However, this filler uses a special formula with vycross technology that allows the filler to stay in place for several months. Some of the specific issues this filler can help with include:
Volume loss is generally most visible in the cheeks. This filler restores volume in the cheeks to rejuvenate your appearance and makes you appear several years younger. In particular, this filler is most effective when it is used on the upper cheek area, as restoring lost volume in this area of the face will also have the bonus effect of lifting and tightening skin on the lower cheeks.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Although this Juvederm filler is not injected directly into wrinkles around the nose and the mouth, this treatment can improve the appearance of these visible signs of aging. Because this filler increases the volume in your cheeks and tightens your skin, fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and the mouth will appear less severe since your skin will be tighter.
Finally, this filler can also be used to contour your appearance. There are two areas where this filler is used to contour; the cheekbones and the chin. Using this filler in the cheekbones is an excellent way to augment your appearance to achieve a specific high-cheek appearance. This dermal filler has a dense quality that makes it ideal for subtly contouring the face, especially for younger people.
What Is the Best Age for Treatment?
According to Juvederm, anyone over the age of 21 is a good potential candidate for treatment. In general, people who are between the ages of 30 and 40 are the ones who use this particular treatment most often. Younger people may use this filler to contour their appearance or slow down volume loss in the cheeks, while older people may use this filler to correct moderate to severe volume loss in the mid-face to achieve other anti-aging goals.
What Can You Expect From Treatment?
Most people can expect to complete a dermal filler appointment within about 30 minutes. Your filler will be administered via several small injections in targeted areas of the face until your aesthetic goals are achieved. Because this dermal filler will instantly plump the skin, your provider will be able to restore your appearance with an artistic flair, with the filler acting as an anti-aging brush.
You will not need to make any specific arrangements before your treatment or after, as there is no recovery time for this minimally invasive treatment. However, for about one week before your appointment, you will need to avoid the use of any blood-thinning medications or supplements. After your treatment, you should avoid touching, rubbing, or scrubbing your skin for at least 24 to 48 hours.
When Will You See Results?
Most people will be able to see the results of this treatment instantly. Before you even leave the med spa, you will look several years younger. Over the next few days, your initial results will settle into the sub-dermal layers of your skin and will gradually improve for the next one to two weeks. At this point, you will be able to see the final results of your treatment.
How Long Will Results Last?
This particular Juvederm dermal filler is designed to last for at least two years when used in the cheeks. Compared to other fillers available to you, this formulation has significantly long-lasting results. While some other fillers may only last for one year, this filler lasts twice as long and sometimes even longer if your skin responds well to the hyaluronic acid formula.
Of course, your results will also last longer if you make certain lifestyle choices. For example, avoiding unprotected sun exposure will protect your filler from breaking down prematurely. You may also be able to fortify the longevity of your results by using anti-aging skincare products that encourage collagen production in the skin.
When Will You Need Another Treatment?
Most of the time, clients schedule another treatment with this filler once every two years or once every 18 months. When you have your follow-up treatments consistently, you will be able to enjoy continuous results without any snap-back. Naturally, if you start to see signs that volume loss is starting again in the cheeks, then you should schedule another appointment as soon as possible, even if it hasn’t been two years since your last treatment.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Because hyaluronic acid is considered hypoallergenic since the substance can be found naturally in the body, most people who want to restore volume loss in the cheeks are good candidates for this treatment. Candidates for this treatment should not be pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of allergic reaction.
If you have a skin issue, such as eczema, on the day of your appointment, then you should reschedule. A consultation with one of our knowledgeable skin experts will be able to determine if you are eligible for this treatment.
What About Other Juvederm Products?
The Juvederm collection of dermal fillers is fairly extensive, so depending on your aesthetic concerns, you may want to mix and match products to achieve your appearance goals. For example, it’s not uncommon to use Voluma in the cheeks and Volbella beneath the eyes to correct hollow tear troughs. We will help you find the correct combination of Juvederm fillers to correct all of your age-related concerns.
