The aging process can take a toll on the face. Over time the cheek area can flatten and begin to sag. This is due to the natural aging process. With the combined loss and sagging of skin, fat, muscle and bone, the skin is left with a thin and hollow appearance. Insert Juvederm Voluma® XC. The Juvederm family of fillers are the first and only HA fillers approved by the FDA. Each filler is specifically designed for specific placement. If you’re ready to see if Voluma or any of Juvederm fillers are right for you, contact our office today.
What is Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma® is a Hyaluronic Acid filler designed to specifically correct the naturally occurring, age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Being a thicker HA, it is placed differently than the traditional Juvederm products used for lip augmentation or superficial lines. This filler is placed deeper into the skin, just above the bone to address the flattening and sagging of the skin. Designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface, Juvederm Voluma® provides contouring and lifting instantly. With results lasting up to 2 years, you can restore your youthful look in as little as one visit.
Once you’ve made your appointment for filler, you won’t regret it. You will meet with our talented, friendly and compassionate Aesthetic Nurse Injector, Anne. Prior to starting your injection, she will talk with you about your specific areas of concern. Next, she will discuss all viable options with you as well as recommended number of syringes and if any other treatments are necessary to reach your desired look. During your thorough treatment, Anne will apply a compounded topical anesthetic to the area being injected to aid in decreasing sensitivity to the injection.
While the results are immediate, there are some moderate side effects that we like for you to be aware of. These temporary side effects can be and are not limited to: tenderness of the injection site, redness, swelling, firmness, pain and bruising. These side effects are in no way permanent and subside anywhere from 1-3 weeks following the injection. If there is any post injection bruising, our estheticians can treat the bruise within a few days with our BBL treatment. This treatment targets the hemoglobin and will heat it to destruction. This will eliminate any unsightly bruising with no additional downtime.
Sometimes to see the best results, doing a combination of treatments is the best option. At our Medical Spa, serving Kansas City and surrounding areas, we have options for everyone to reverse aging. Juvederm Voluma® can be paired with several treatments to enhance your skin or other areas of the face. Consider a facial laser such as Halo, to stimulate more collagen production, target fine lines and reduce hyperpigmentation. This duo will give you a youthful glow, with lifted skin. Another option would be to add botox to the forehead, frownline or crowsfeet areas to limit expression lines. This treatment beautifully compliments Juvederm Voluma® with no downtime. The addition of proper skin care products will brighten your skin and aid in the longevity of the filler. Our estheticians offer complimentary skin assessments to determine which products will suit your skin best. And finally, since Juvederm Voluma® is specifically designed for the cheek area, adding Juvederm Ultra Plus to your lips will give a subtle enhancement to your pout, restoring lost volume and border.
