Fill yourself with self-confidence
What makes for youthful, healthy-looking skin? A smooth texture and radiant tone just scratch the surface. It may not be as emphasized as the other signs of aging, but volume is another major characteristic of a beautiful face – and it makes a world of difference in the appearance of your skin. Too little volume in the cheek area can make the face look sunken and exaggerate the look of fine lines. On the other hand, a surplus of volume can cause the skin to look swollen and unnatural.
Fortunately, there’s a treatment that can help restore your skin’s youthful plumpness and give you beautiful, natural-looking results. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel that gives your skin just enough volume to contour your face and subtract years from your appearance.
FDA-approved Boost volume in cheek area Instantly look younger No downtime or recovery
How does VOLUMA® work?
If the skin on your face appears to be thin and sunken, low levels of hyaluronic acid could be to blame. Your body is comprised of a number of cells, and this substance naturally exists in between them, giving your skin a firm, youthful appearance. As you age, the substance gradually decreases, slowly depleting your face of moisture and volume. Combined with other factors, this can cause an increase in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be injected into the cheek to restore their natural suppleness. A fine needle targets the area to boost their volume and beautifully contour the face. In a matter of minutes, your skin is restored to a firm, plump state. Your face will be more defined and instantly appear more youthful. There’s zero downtime, and you can immediately continue on with your day.
How is JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC different?
Versus Other Injectables
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is different from other gel-like injectables. First, it’s used specifically in the cheek area to make them appear more plump and youthful. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC are similar injectables that focus more on deep lines specifically around the nose and mouth and are used to target laugh lines and thin lips.
On the other hand, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX® COSMETIC are a type of injectable that can assist with anti-aging, but they accomplish different goals. Rather than instantly filling in sunken parts of the face, these substances gradually relax facial muscles to temporarily reduce the appearance wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is also the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheer area, and can last up to two years with optimal treatment. If you’re looking to plump cheeks that have sunken over time, this injectable is a quick, convenient approach to skin care.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC vs. Fat Grafting
Also referred to as fat transplantation and facial fat injection, fat grafting is the process of taking fat from one part of your body and placing it in another. Often, the fat is removed from the hips or thighs and injected into certain areas of the face to promote a fuller, more youthful appearance. While the process can produce beautiful, natural-looking results, there’s a chance that your body could almost immediately absorb the injected fat cells, or they could die and reverse the effects of the procedure. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a firm, gel-like substance that can maintain a plump appearance for up to two years.
Is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC painful?
Comfort levels vary from person to person, and the professionals at Ideal Image are trained to make your sessions as pleasant as possible. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC contains lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. You can also ask for a topical treatment that can further reduce discomfort.
How long does the session last?
One of the biggest advantages of dermal fillers is the brevity of treatment. In mere minutes, you’ll notice plumper skin, and you can walk out of the center looking younger than you did on the way in. For your first treatment, you’ll need to set aside time for a free consultation with one of our consultants who can walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Following your first treatment, you’ll see beautiful results, but you may wish to schedule more, depending on your goals. The treatments that follow should be even shorter in duration and require less of the substance.
What are the side effects of treatment?:
Side effects are rare, and they’re even less likely to happen when you seek the help of a trusted medical or nursing professional, like those at Ideal Image. Some risks include redness, tenderness and swelling at the injection site. Also, as with all injections, there’s a chance of infection. Potential side effects can be covered during your free consultation. Please feel free to ask your consultant any questions you may have about being treated with Voluma.
