In today’s world, we have seen a major increase in the number of cosmetic procedures being performed. Dermal fillers are among the most popular cosmetic procedures for correcting signs of aging. There are several types of dermal fillers available, and one popular option is Juvederm Voluma.
The most prominent aging-related changes in the face occur in the cheeks. Dull and sunken cheeks can leave you looking gaunt and older than you actually are. Voluma is an injectable dermal filler used to address aging signs in the cheeks. It adds a natural-looking and long-lasting fullness.
Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved filler that comes in the form of a gel. This filler consists of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a long chain of sugars. The synthetic HA used in Voluma is quite similar to the natural HA found in the inner skin layers; this makes it easy for the skin to accept these fillers.
One other significant ingredient found in Voluma is lidocaine. There might be some anesthetic administered before the injection, but the lidocaine present in the filler helps create a temporary numbness in the area where the injection is administered. This eases any discomfort that might be experienced.
Overall, the process is only minimally invasive and involves injections and no incisions; because of this, it is an almost painless process that does not necessitate a long recovery period.
Advantages of Voluma
• The results obtained after the procedure appear natural. Anyone can opt for the injection, and the most common age group of candidates who choose Voluma ranges between 35 and 65 years old.
• One main benefit that Voluma offers is the fact that the results can last for up to two years in most patients. And if the candidate wishes to receive the injections again after two years, it will be a much simpler process. The results will also appear much more quickly.
• A visible plumpness is added below the outer skin layers with this treatment. This makes the cheeks look fuller, creates a natural youthful appearance, and also helps erase minor wrinkles and fine lines. The issue of skin sag and loose skin in and around the cheek area will also be corrected with the filler. This is how a simple Voluma injection can result in dramatic changes in the face and give a younger and more contoured look.
• There are no incisions required for this treatment, meaning there will be no scars. This makes it a quick process not just in terms of the time taken for the injection but also in terms of the recovery period. Since the composition of the fillers is safe and has been rigorously tested, you do not have to be worried about side effects.
