The aging process has varying effects on everyone’s skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin, and loss of facial and cheek volume can leave you looking older than you actually feel. Numerous cosmetic surgeries and invasive techniques are available to address issues like sagging skin and loss of facial volume, but not many people relish the idea of going “under the knife.” Invasive procedures can sometimes be risky and time-consuming. Fortunately, treatments like Juvederm Voluma® XC exist to correct the loss of facial and cheek volume without the need to undergo surgery. This procedure involves no surgery or downtime and offers significant results for those dealing with the loss of facial and cheek volume and wrinkles.
What is Juvederm Voluma® XC?
Juvederm Voluma® XC is a dermal filler treatment that involves the injection of a gel containing hyaluronic acid. The treatment helps fill in hollow areas of the face and cheeks by attracting water molecules that volumize and plump the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a special substance produced by your own body. When we are young, it is in ample supply. It attracts and holds water within the soft tissues. Since skin is a soft tissue, hyaluronic acid is able to fill in the face and keep it internally hydrated. However, as time goes on, our bodies produce less of this special substance, leading to drier and thinner skin. Juvederm Voluma® XC can help reverse this process by supplying fresh hyaluronic acid where it has been lost. The result is noticeably more youthful skin. After your treatment, you can expect fuller, more moisturized skin.
A Juvederm Voluma® XC procedure is quite simple. A gel containing the product is skillfully injected into the area to be treated. This allows the product to work in deep layers of your skin and soft tissue. Once injected, the hyaluronic acid goes to work immediately to plump your face and cheeks. Since the hyaluronic acid contained in Juvederm Voluma® XC will be gradually absorbed by your body, you will need additional treatments in order to continue enjoying your results.
