Juvederm Voluma is one of the most popular dermal fillers that Procerus Skin Care Provides provides to patients in Ann Arbor and Troy, Michigan. This newer HA filler in the Juvederm family was FDA approved for restoration of volume in the cheeks.
What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juverderm Voluma is a hyaluronic-acid dermal filler that treats moderate to severe volume loss in the mid-face, specifically the cheeks. Its hyaluronic acid component works by holding in water to serve as a cushioning agent at the treated site. Once the filler is injected, the skin is provided with temporary volume to restore its smooth appearance. The results from the treatment do not last a lifetime, which means Juvederm Voluma patients may need additional treatments to maintain or achieve optimal results.
Who are good candidates for a Juvederm Voluma procedure?
The injectable filler can provide great benefits to patients who desire to eliminate or reduce the appearance of moderate to severe volume loss, and age related sagging of the skin in the mid-face. An individual can also gain optimal results from Juvederm Voluma if he or she has realistic expectations from the procedure.
What can you expect from a Juvederm Voluma treatment?
Procerus Skin Care Staff will ensure that you are comfortable during your dermal filler appointments. Although there can be little discomfort as the filler is injected into the skin, patients may prefer to be given with a local anesthetic called lidocaine to make the procedure more tolerable. Since the treatment only involves injections, the procedure can be completed in less than an hour and provides little to no downtime.**
What can I expect after my Juvederm Voluma treatment?
During the first 24 hours after treatment, Dr. Gilmore usually advises her patients to avoid engaging in strenuous exercises, consuming alcoholic beverages, or exposing themselves to the extensive heat of the sun. These could lead to the aggravation of certain side effects such as redness, swelling, or itching at the treated sites. If swelling occurs, Dr. Gilmore advises her patients to apply an ice pack over the area. You will receive further specific aftercare instructions to aid you in your healing along with ample time for questions.
