As you age, your cheeks can begin to lose volume. Volume loss is a natural sign of aging but, there is a way to restore natural volume to the face to combat aging and improve your appearance. At Dundee Dermatology in West Dundee, IL, we offer a Juvederm Voluma, a filler from the Juvederm family designed to help restore youth to the face, specifically the cheeks, so you can achieve a younger and more sculpted appearance.
How Long Does Juvederm Voluma Last in the Cheeks?
Juvederm Voluma is one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers in the entire Juvederm collection. With optimal treatment, you can expect your results to last a year or longer with optimal. It typically depends on how quickly your body metabolizes the filler’s ingredients. However, once it does, a repeat injection can help you maintain consistent results. You don’t have to live with hollow cheeks, but instead, you can use dermal fillers to restore youth to your face.
How It Works
Like all of the Juvederm fillers, Juvederm Voluma contains a form of hyaluronic acid in a crystal clear gel formulation. During treatment, your injector will clean the planned injection sites and then administer the filler in precise locations of the cheeks to instantly plump, contour, and lift the appearance. You’ll see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your cheeks, and your results will continue to develop and improve in the week following your treatment.
The filler will settle between the dermis, the top layer of your skin, and the deeper layers and will instantly lift that top layer and provide support for the skin so that you can combat aging in a very natural-looking way.
Who Is a Candidate?
Patients in their twenties, seventies, and everywhere in between can use this dermal filler to help restore structure to their faces, combat aging, and enhance their appearance. Patients with naturally thin faces can use Juvederm Voluma to define their cheeks and meet their aesthetic goals.
Patients who have begun to experience volume loss in their cheeks and are left with sagging or flattened cheeks can also use this filler to lift the area and look and feel more like their younger selves again.
The Treatment Process
An initial consultation is how we can determine your eligibility for treatment. During this consultation, we will discuss your primary areas of concern and consider different factors to see if this filler is right for you. We will learn more about your health history and any previous experience with dermal fillers and ensure that you aren’t allergic to anything in the filler formulation. Once we confirm that this dermal filler is right for you, we can begin the treatment process.
Treating Multiple Areas
One of the benefits of the Juvederm collection is that there are several fillers designed to meet different aesthetic needs. This collection of fillers contains formulations that can augment and restore volume and fullness to the lips, smooth smile lines and facial folds around the mouth, help address hollow areas on the face by injecting natural volume to the area, and even sculpt the chin profile.
Preparing for Your Treatment
Before beginning treatment, you should avoid alcohol consumption for 24 hours and any over-the-counter medication or supplements that act as blood thinners. Doing so will help your skin and body respond well to your injection and recover quickly. At your initial consultation, we will review in detail how you should prepare for your treatment.
This treatment process is quick, and you’ll be in and out of your office within a few minutes of your injections. You won’t have to worry about any downtime and can return to work if necessary. You will need to be mindful of some directives post-treatment to ensure that you achieve the best possible results. After your appointment, you need to avoid strenuous activity or intense workouts for 24 hours to avoid inflammation in the treatment area.
You should also avoid anything that increases your body temperature, including any type of hot environment or setting. You should also avoid touching the treatment area so that the filler can settle well and integrate with your skin’s structure.
Once you undergo this treatment, you will see immediate results, and they will continue to improve for a week post-treatment. Your results will look natural thanks to the filler’s effective formulation with perfectly proportioned particle size designed to add volume below the skin naturally and subtly.
Your results will last up to six months and can be extended with a follow-up treatment three months after your initial injection to help extend those results a year or longer. When you begin treatment, we will design the right treatment plan for your needs so that you can experience a youthful appearance once again.
