The aging process can change the way your skin looks and feels, causing you to lose confidence or feel uncomfortable in your skin. If you’re struggling with a loss of volume in your cheeks, skin sagging, or the development of jowls, there is an effective anti-aging solution for you. At Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA, we offer Juvederm Voluma treatments that can help to bring back your face’s natural fullness and youthful glow.
How Does Juvederm Voluma Work?
Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler developed to target signs of aging, such as loss of volume, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. This dermal filler is comprised of a collagen-boosting compound called hyaluronic acid. This ingredient helps to fill in lost volume to the injected areas. In particular, this filler is best for targeting sunken cheeks, restoring volume to renew definition and plumpness.
What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?
The Juvederm line of dermal fillers are all formulated using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural-occurring humectant that can be found in the skin, eyes, and synovial fluid of joints. That’s why the Juvederm line is considered one of the safest dermal fillers. The moisture-retaining molecules of the hyaluronic acid fill in your cheeks and give your face more volume directly upon injection. In addition, HA helps to stimulate the production of collagen, thereby aiding in maintaining your skin’s elasticity and structure.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
If you’re looking to treat any number of aging concerns, this dermal filler might be a good fit for you. A good candidate for this treatment has good overall health and no pre-existing skin irritation or conditions around the targeted treatment area. Additionally, a good candidate is one who has realistic expectations about what this treatment can offer. This Juvederm formula is designed to target specific aging concerns and offer distinct treatment benefits. Read on to discover if yours are on the list of this product’s targeted aging concerns and expected results.
Treating Sunken Cheeks
Loss of volume in the skin is one of the many normal signs of aging. Volume loss occurs all over the face but is more noticeable in certain areas, such as the cheeks. Loss of volume in the cheeks can age your appearance beyond your years. The appearance of hollow or sunken cheeks can also give the impression of being gaunt or sickly. With the use of Voluma, your cheeks will return to a healthier, younger-looking volume. This plumping effect will also help to lift sagging skin, which prevents and/or reduces the appearance and formation of jowls.
A Safer Dermal Filler
Anti-aging results are targeted by a plethora of skincare and treatment options. Many injectables, dermal fillers, and surgical procedures can provide effective anti-aging effects. However, not every treatment is a good fit for every person with aging concerns. Some options can even carry a high risk for certain individuals due to such factors as genetics, pre-existing conditions, or allergies.
Because this particular dermal filler uses a substance that naturally occurs in your skin, there’s no cause for concern around what is being injected into your body. This dermal filler is FDA-approved and has been carefully formulated with consumer safety at the forefront of its development. When looking for a low-risk, high-impact treatment for your aging concerns, Voluma is one of the best available options. It harnesses the power of nature to deliver stunning results.
Fast Results For Instant Gratification
Safety is of the utmost importance when receiving any anti-aging treatments, but results are also of high importance. Some dermal fillers on the market, while effective, can take a long time to develop. This means you can spend weeks, or sometimes months, waiting to see the results of your treatment! This can be challenging to accept, as you may continue to struggle with self-confidence while waiting for your treatment to pay off.
If you’re looking for quick, nearly-instant results, Juvederm filler products are an excellent option. All Juvederm formulas are specially crafted to offer fast, lasting results. As soon as your treatment has finished, you’ll immediately see an improvement in your skin’s appearance. Your results will develop even more over the next few days, offering you a fast-acting fix for fuller, youthful cheeks.
Lasting Results That Stay Long-Term
Some anti-aging treatments can offer only short-term results. This can be beneficial if you’re looking to try out a product without making a long-term commitment to its effects. In the rare chance that the results are not what you desired or expected, a short-term solution can be more manageable. However, generally speaking, most people seeking anti-aging treatments are looking for something that will affect their appearance long-term.
Juvederm fillers treatments are specifically formulated to deliver extended results. You can typically expect the effects of this dermal filler to last around a year, and even up to two years. Results can be extended by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a complementary skincare routine, but knowing your dermal filler is built to last can give you confidence in your results.
A More Natural Appearance
Some of our clients have concerns that receiving a cosmetic treatment may not give them the natural look they desire. This is largely due to the misinformation they’ve read in magazines or stories they’ve heard from friends. With Juvederm fillers products, there are no strange chemical substances – only hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in your body. This means that this dermal filler uses nature’s tools for skin fullness and moisture retention to restore your appearance in the most natural possible way.
In addition, when you choose a trusted clinic with highly trained technicians, you can always expect your results to look beautiful and natural. At Allure Enhancement Center, we pride ourselves on creating subtle, natural results. We’ve put in the hours to ensure that our technicians are able to deliver treatments with precision and care so you leave our clinic feeling confident and content.
What To Expect During Treatment
When considering a Juvederm fillers treatment plan, you’ll first need to attend a consultation. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your aging concerns and determine the best course of action to meet your goals. We’ll also review your medical history, so we can confirm that this treatment is right for you. You’ll also get the chance to ask us any questions or share any concerns, so we can make sure you have a full understanding of the treatment and realistic expectations for your results.
Your First Appointment
Prior to treatment, it’s imperative that you stop taking any medications that may thin out the blood for a full week. We also ask that you not consume alcohol or smoke for 24 to 48 hours prior to your appointment.
Once at your appointment, we’ll need to prepare your skin for the injections. This involves cleaning the targeted treatment areas and optionally applying a small amount of topical anesthetic for maximum comfort. Once the skin is prepared, our highly trained technicians will administer several small injections to the targeted areas. This will allow us to control the amount of product administered, thereby creating the subtle results you desire.
Recovery and After-Care
After your appointment has concluded, you’ll be able to walk out of the clinic and resume your daily activity. Receiving dermal filler injections is non-invasive, so no downtime is necessary. Recovery time is minimal, and you’ll be sent away with a small set of instructions on how to best care for your skin as it heals from the treatment. For example, it’s important to continue avoiding alcohol and tobacco consumption over the next few days.
Additionally, it’s imperative that exposure to direct sunlight is avoided. We recommend staying out of the sun completely, if possible. If sun exposure is unavoidable, we recommend using SPF30 or higher, applied diligently, in addition to wearing a wide-brimmed hat. Running, playing sports, hot yoga, or any other physical activity that could make you sweat a lot should be avoided. You shouldn’t experience any pain or discomfort following your treatment; however, you may see a small amount of swelling in the first two days following your appointment.
