Like Juvederm®, Juvederm Voluma® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that helps you look younger without surgery or down time. Juvederm Voluma can be injected deeper into the skin, however, so that it can lift sagging skin, fill hollowed areas, and restore a youthful contour to portions of the face that have begun to flatten as a result of the aging process. Juvederm Voluma is created using a technology that makes the gel particularly smooth. For this reason, it flows into the skin easily and looks very natural
When Juvederm Voluma is administered by a skilled physician/nurse practitioner there will be little evidence of anything on the first day, other then a fullness and youthfulness. We “go slow” to prevent you from looking “overdone,” these injectables require the eye of a sculptor and it is always easier to give than take away, so we may have you return several days to weeks later for a courtesy recheck.
How does Juvederm Voluma work?
Like Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Since hyaluronic acid is already contained in your body, no allergy test is required. Juvederm Voluma improves and strengthens the structure of your skin, providing a subtle lift to areas of your face that have lost laxity and volume.
What can I expect from Juvederm Voluma?
A fine needle is used for your Juvederm Voluma injections, which contain Lidocaine in the formula for a numbing effect. A topical anesthetic can also be used on the injection sites to ensure your comfort. An ice pack may be applied as well to keep swelling to a minimum. You may also notice some invisible lumps at the injection sites. All of these symptoms should resolve within a few days. The effects of the injection may last from 1 to 2 years.
