Faces characterized as youthful generally share the same characteristics. In addition to large and round eyes, the coveted “baby face” also features round cheeks and a small chin.
As you get older, the shape of your face changes. Age-related changes tend to first surface in the mid-face. With age, your skin begins to sag. Your cheeks will appear more flat and sunken. As tissues sag, the lower third portion of your face can appear heavier and more jowly.
Voluma™ is a member of the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. Fillers are solutions that may be injected through fine needles to plump and smooth targeted areas of the face. Products such as Juvéderm XC are designed to smooth folds around the nose and mouth.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is FDA-approved to correct age-related volume loss in adults who are at least 21 years old. Like its sister Juvéderm fillers, Voluma™ is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA). Naturally present in the body, HA provides moisture to the skin and lubrication to the joints. As a moisture-loving molecule, HA binds to water to produce a viscous gel.
In the capable hands of board-certified surgeon Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf, the Voluma™ gel will be skillfully applied to temporarily add volume to the apples of the cheeks. The filler behaves like a cushion. Once injected, the solution plumps sagging tissues from the inside out. You instantly see results. Smooth contours and a more youthful appearance will be achieved.
Since Voluma™ uses a unique manufacturing process and high concentration of hyaluronic acid, you can enjoy a younger-looking appearance for up to 2 years. Dr. Bengelsdorf will recommend touch-up or follow-up injections to maintain optimal results. These ongoing treatments may require less of the Voluma™ filler than was necessary for initial treatment.
According to clinical studies reported by Juvéderm maker, Allergan, the gel was found to not only effectively reshape the cheeks and add fullness but also to:
- Retain cheek fullness in almost 90 percent of subjects for six months
- Maintain a youthful facial appearance in more than 75 percent of subjects who remained satisfied with treatment two years after their last injections
On average, subjects said they looked five years younger six months after Voluma™ treatment. Isn’t it time to look as young as you feel? Don’t wait another day to experience results without surgery.
