Facial aging occurs in several stages. For most people, fine lines first appear around the mouth and eyes. These are dynamic wrinkles that are caused by tension within the expressive muscles. As facial aging advances, however, deeper and more noticeable creases will develop and the cheeks will start to lose volume. The good news is that Juvederm Voluma is designed to reverse these changes while providing long-lasting benefits.
Why Choose Juvederm Voluma?
With advanced facial aging, there’s always the option of investing in a surgical procedure. With these procedures, the facial skin is pulled taut and excessive skin is removed. Although effective, these procedures are surgical in nature and entail a significant amount of downtime. This is simply not the case with Juvederm Voluma, which is an FDA-approved injectable cosmetic treatment that can be used without any surgery. Best of all, it is capable of restoring the mid-face back to its former, youthful condition.
How Juvederm Voluma Works
As people grow older, their bodies start producing less and less skin-supporting substances. When natural collagen production starts to decline, the skin at the jaw and at the mid-portion of the face can take on a loose and sagging appearance. This is also the time at which the natural stores of an important, hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) begin to decline as well.
All formulas within the Juvederm brand are largely comprised of HA. Once Juvederm Voluma is injected into the skin, the HA that it contains will instantly begin binding with local skin cells. It will additionally attract and retain nearby water molecules. This activity both hydrates and fills in the dermis from the inside out.
Like many consumers, you may already be familiar with various dermal filler injectables. These hyaluronic acid-based gels can quickly fill in creases across the visage. Juvederm Voluma is different in that it is both specially formulated for treating more advanced signs of aging at the mid-face, and it’s capable of lasting significantly longer than other injectables.
