What is Juvederm Voluma™?

May 2 2014

These days, men and women want to look and feel as young as possible. Injectable dermal fillers are a great way to  add volume and shape to the face, especially around the cheeks and the chin.

Juvederm Voluma™ is a new, FDA-approved gel filler that’s designed to make a person’s skin look and feel significantly younger. A youthful appearance is achieved by simply plumping up the mid-facial area, helping skin become firmer, softer, and more youthful.

Best of all, Juvederm Voluma has a lasting effect, with many patients seeing results that last up to 18 months! There are other forms of Juvederm, some of which are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds in skin.

Juvederm Voluma contains hyaluronic acid, a substance produced naturally in skin. With age, levels of this substance begin to decrease, causing skin to lose shape and volume. What sets Voluma apart from other fillers is that it will integrate with existing collagen and elastin already in the skin tissue, creating skin that is both firmer and younger-looking.

Adults of nearly any age who wish to correct signs of aging at the chin or jaw line are considered good candidates for this filler. While older men and woman typically seek this procedure to restore a youthful appearance to their face, younger men and women may also benefit from the procedure. Those who have recently lost a significant amount of weight can also benefit from this procedure, as it can correct the appearance of  “looser” looking skin.

Your doctor will use a fine, thin needle to inject Juvederm Voluma into a targeted area of the face. The procedure will take about 15 minutes to complete, and does not require anesthesia. In fact, the gel formula contains lidocaine which minimizes the patient’s discomfort.
