Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
Voluma is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that instantly augments and enhances volume in all three regions of the cheek (apex, apple, hollow). Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a powerfully hydrating material responsible for preserving moisture and preventing water loss from the skin. Although HA is produced naturally by the body, our HA levels decrease as we age, causing our skin to become dehydrated and to lose volume and firmness.
VOLUMA replenishes dwindling HA levels, giving the facial contours a subtle, rejuvenating lift, and restoring a more youthful facial appearance that can last up to two years (periodic maintenance treatments may be necessary to preserve the longevity of your treatment results). As with all JUVÉDERM ®brand injectable dermal fillers, VOLUMA is safe and appropriate for use in persons of all ethnicities and races, without risk of hypertrophic scarring or hyperpigmentation. Moreover, because the hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM ® products is not derived from animals, pre-treatment allergy testing is not required.
JUVEDERM® has been around for more than a decade and is now one of the most popular wrinkle fillers. When injected into facial wrinkles and folds, the JUVEDERM® solution acts as a cushioning agent or a scaffolding for your skin, adding structure and volume to depressions. JUVEDERM® achieves this beautiful result with its solution of hyaluronic acid gel. The colorless solution mimics the hyaluronic acids found in your skin, hydrating and replenishing your skin. JUVEDERM® comes in three concentrations to handle every problem from deep folds to fine lines. Injected into your dermis, it replenishes the natural hyaluronic acid and hydrates the dermis by absorbing and holding the water molecules and giving back to your skin its volume and initial form. In this way aging lines are quickly reduced and your lip border instantly lifted and increased, helping to preserve and restore your youthful looking skin.
Juvederm is a dermal filler that provides a non-invasive way to attain a more youthful appearance. It is a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that, when injected into the skin, restores the skin’s volume and hydration. Juvederm is used to smooth away wrinkles and nasolabial folds, otherwise known as smile lines.
A specially formulated gel, composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, Juvederm was developed by Allergan, the manufacturer for Botox, and approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2006. The smooth consistency of Juvederm allows it to be easily and accurately administered by your MedSpa specialist. Each treatment requires approximately 15 minutes, depending on the number of injections required. Results with Juvederm are immediate.
Your rejuvenated appearance is temporary, and can be maintained for up to one year with results varying from person to person. Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein, allowing Juvederm to gradually be absorbed into the body. Additionally, injections, or touch ups, may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results. The natural protein used, allows Juvederm to pose little risk of an allergic reaction and does not require an allergy test prior to treatment.
Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time, or simply want fuller lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can give you natural-looking results that last.
