Juvederm is a dermal filler that patients favor. As it rejuvenates drooping, wrinkled skin and rejuvenates aging skin, it has an unparalleled effect on aging skin. Here at Kadz Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, we offer a line of Juvederm products, including Voluma, an advanced formula that restores facial harmony and gives you a younger-looking complexion.
What Are the Benefits of Juvederm Voluma?
This treatment provides sagging skin a lift, fills in wrinkles, and conceals signs of aging. It also rebalances uneven features. Simple injections are all it takes to accomplish the goal. By injecting products, the skin is targeted from the inside, allowing for faster results. Thus, the results last longer and appear far better than anything produced by over-the-counter products.
For centuries, we’ve struggled to beat the ravages of aging and have relinquished our control over our looks. We now have an opportunity to regain control over our bodies and faces thanks to Juvederm Voluma. It’s thrilling for the patients to be able to identify the person they see in the mirror as the young and vibrant person they remember.
The Treatment: What Is It?
There are many fillers available from Juvederm that are designed for the treatment of different areas around the face. Voluma is a unique treatment that corrects the lower part of the face. This is accomplished by restoring volume to the cheeks and chin.
A more balanced and sculpted look is achieved by contouring and defining the area around the cheeks. If it is applied to the chin, it can reduce submental fullness, lift skin that has sagged, and sharpen jawlines.
It does all this by replenishing and restoring the skin with hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. A decrease in hyaluronic acid production leads to a loss of skin volume as we get older. Lines and hollows appear on the skin. Often, as we age, we lose confidence and become frustrated at the idea that we cannot control how we look. This treatment adds new hyaluronic acid into these problematic areas, restoring volume.
Where Can I Utilize This Treatment?
In addition to giving an individual a gorgeous profile, a pronounced, refined chin often makes their face appear younger and their skin appear tighter. Patients can achieve a softer, lifted appearance by using this treatment on the chin and jawline.
Specifically designed for treating cheeks, this Juvederm filler hydrates them. Sunken areas can be filled, and wrinkles that have developed because of volume loss can be smoothed out. Nasolabial folds, as well as smile lines, are also addressed by this treatment. Consequently, the cheeks are emphasized and the face is lifted.
The Treatment Process
To determine if this treatment is right for you, we will examine your medical history and discuss your goals. Our treatment plan will begin once we have determined that you are a good fit. You’ll find out how many injections you need, how much product you’ll need, and where you should have injections.
Many patients are surprised to learn that certain areas bothering them do not respond well to direct injection but are lifted when other portions of their face are treated. We have expert staff who understand facial anatomy and have the artistry and experience to help you achieve a balanced and full appearance. We will then schedule your appointment!
Bring a makeup-free, clean face to your consultation. Just to be sure your skin is primed for injections, we’ll give it one more clean before we begin. An injection of lidocaine or a topical numbing cream is used to numb the treatment area. We can then administer injections while you are relaxed and comfortable.
It is easy to get these injections administered. In order to achieve the best results, we will inject the product into the target areas around your middle face, cheek, and chin, according to your plan. It will take you around thirty minutes to finish the process. Patients often schedule treatment during their lunch break because it is so quick.
These treatments require no downtime afterward. Surgery often requires taking a few days off work and everything can take as long as ten days to heal; however, with Voluma, patients can immediately get back to work or continue with their day however they wish.
We will provide you with some guidelines for taking good care of your skin. The result will be optimal results and no discomfort. A few of these suggestions may include avoiding excessive sunlight or heat and refraining from vigorous exercise for one day. Patients should also refrain from taking blood thinners. You will receive specific advice tailored to your lifestyle before your treatment.
How About Results?
Most patients notice a dramatic improvement in appearance after having their injections. There is smoothing of wrinkles in the mid-face area, filling of the cheeks, and a more defined jawline that stays soft.
Based on the individual, the location of the treatment, the thickness of their skin, and how fast this process is metabolized, the time it takes for these effects to manifest will vary. It may take some people a week or two to see outcomes, while others might notice results after only a few days. About two weeks after treatment, optimal results should begin to emerge.
Are the Results Lasting?
The results of dermal fillers, in particular Juvederm, are not only gorgeous, but they last for a long time. A patient can expect around-the-chin results to last roughly six months with this treatment. Using the product on the cheeks gives unbelievable results that last for two years. No matter where you get this treatment, it has long-term benefits.
Will I Need More Sessions?
Many of our patients have been so satisfied with the results they schedule regular maintenance sessions with us when their results begin to fade. During a maintenance session, the areas will be injected again and the results will be identical.
What’s the Reason for My Skin’s Loss of Volume?
There are some people who develop flatter cheeks as they age, but there are others who have always had undefined cheeks. Genes play a significant role in sagging cheeks and hollows.
It is no secret that aging causes the skin to lose volume. The production of the proteins and acids that keep the skin firm and plump decreases as we age: production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, specifically, drops over time. These substances keep the skin from sagging, losing texture, and wrinkling.
As you grow older, you may notice sunken, flat cheeks that droop downward. Because of this, rosy, apple-shaped cheeks are associated with youth.
If your body’s fat distribution changes, your face may be affected. Weight loss may make people appear slimmer and more sculpted, but it can also cause their faces to appear gaunt and sunken in. No matter the amount of weight you’ve lost, if you see any gauntness in your face, weight loss might be to blame.
To restore volume, you don’t have to put on weight! For individuals who wish to enhance their facial appearance without affecting their overall weight, this is a great option.
Does Treatment Work for Everyone?
You may be a candidate for this treatment if you are experiencing volume loss in your skin due to aging, weight loss, or genetics. All people regardless of their skin color, age, or gender may be affected by these concerns. As long as you’re physically healthy and over the age of 21, we invite you to schedule a consultation.
This treatment can be customized to meet your cosmetic goals based on both your medical history and your cosmetic goals. The product is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction since hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body.
Are There People Who Aren’t Good Candidates for Treatment?
This treatment cannot be provided to women who are pregnant, planning to fall pregnant, or nursing. The treatment may not be available to people who have active skin infections, especially those who suffer from an infection near the area in need of treatment.
In some cases, dermal fillers won’t be effective in treating wrinkles. Repetitive movement rather than sagging skin causes some wrinkles, and a treatment like Botox might be more effective in countering this type, since it relaxes facial muscles and smooths the skin above them. Here at Kadz Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox treatments to those who need them and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
