Aging comes with pros and cons. You gain a lot as you get older, but many of the side effects like changes to your skin are unwelcome. At Mountain Spa Cosmetic Surgery in Beckley, WV, our Juvederm Voluma treatments can help you look young again.
How Can You Lift Your Cheeks? Discover Voluma
There are many changes to your skin that you’ll notice as you get older. You’ll likely see more and more wrinkles appear the older you get, and that parts of your face like your cheeks begin to lose definition. This is caused by a loss of volume in the face, which will make you look older.
If you’d like to put the volume back into your face for a more supple, youthful appearance, then Voluma is the perfect solution for you. This filler is part of the Juvederm lineup, a collection of hyaluronic acid-based injectables. This particular filler is designed to put fullness into your cheeks, lifting and smoothing out the skin.
What Is Voluma?
This is a dermal filler, which means that a needle is used to inject the product into the skin. It’s part of the Juvederm collection, all of which target different areas of the face. It will provide you with effective and long-lasting results, adding volume to your cheeks which you may have lost with age.
This will give you more defined and fuller cheeks, which will help you look younger. It will also lift your skin and make it firmer. This will help eliminate any jowls that may have been forming on your face.
How Does It Work?
This filler is made with hyaluronic acid, which is a chemical you can find in your body. Specifically, it’s a sugar that is present in your skin, eyes, and connective tissues. You have large quantities of hyaluronic acid when you’re younger, but these levels diminish with age.
When it’s injected into your skin, the product will immediately take up space underneath your skin which firms your cheeks and lifts any sagging skin. The hyaluronic acid binds to moisture, keeping skin hydrated and offering a protective barrier. It will also stimulate collagen production in your body, helping to keep skin firm and bright.
Why Do Our Cheeks Sag?
Many changes come along with aging, and one of the main ones is a loss of volume. Your skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you get older. It also contains the proteins elastin and collagen, which are what provide your skin with structure, firmness, and elasticity.
The more that these chemicals diminish, the less able your skin is to maintain its structure and stay firm and supple. Gravity will begin to affect your skin more, causing it to sag and droop and your cheeks to lose a significant amount of definition.
What Are the Other Types of Juvederm?
Voluma is a great way to put more volume into your cheeks, lifting sagging skin and making you look younger. But if you have other concerns on your face, then you may receive one or more additional types of Juvederm.
Losing volume in your cheeks is a natural side effect of aging. But they aren’t the only areas where you’ll lose fullness and elasticity. The area around your mouth and nose moves around a lot every day, and this combined with changes to your skin can cause deep lines and wrinkles to form.
The vertical lines that appear between your nose and your mouth are called nasolabial folds. More colloquially, they are known as smile lines or laugh lines. If you’re looking to put more fullness into the area and smooth out the skin, then Vollure is the perfect way to do that.
If you’re not happy with the way your lips look, then you might be looking for an effective way to add in more fullness and definition. It’s possible that you’ve lost volume in your lips as you’ve gotten older. If you’ve always had thin lips, then this can exacerbate the problem.
Volbella is specifically designed to target the lip area. This will help you add volume and definition, acting as a non-invasive and non-surgical way to enhance your lips.
The Treatment Process
As with any type of cosmetic treatment, receiving your Juvederm injections from a licensed and highly trained doctor is of the highest importance. When you come to our clinic, you can count on the fact that you’ll be comfortable, safe, and that you’ll get the results you’re looking for.
Before we set you up with your appointment, we’ll sit down for a consultation. We’ll take this time to go over your medical history. Please be sure to mention if you have any allergies or sensitivities, or if you have any other health concerns. This will help us ensure that this treatment is right and safe for you.
We’ll also talk about what the results you’d like to see are and help you set your expectations for the treatment process. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them. We’ll be more than happy to address any concerns that you might have about the treatment.
Preparing for Treatment
We’ll give you complete instructions on how you should prepare for your treatment. There is very little you’ll need to do, but it’s still important to follow our instructions to make sure that your treatment provides you with the safe results you want.
There are a few simple things you’ll need to do in the weeks leading up to your treatment. Make sure that you are not taking any medications that could thin out your blood like ibuprofen, aspirin, and certain other anti-inflammatories. You’ll also need to avoid drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco.
Our team is here to help you get the results you’re looking for in a safe and comfortable environment. Before applying the injections, we’ll prepare your skin by first carefully cleaning it to remove any dirt or oil that has built up over the day. We might also apply numbing cream to the area being targeted.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the injections. The treatment process is very fast and you may feel just a slight pinching sensation as the product is applied. We will apply small amounts at a time to your desired areas to make sure that you get the subtle and natural-looking results you want. The entire process should take somewhere between 15 minutes to an hour depending on how many injections you require.
Recovery time is minimal after your treatment. This is one of the major benefits of getting this treatment. Instead of having to schedule a long and uncomfortable recovery period like you would with a surgical procedure. There is essentially no downtime required, and you can get back to your busy life right away.
Just make sure you follow our instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly and quickly. We’ll ask that you refrain from staying out in direct sunlight, as well as any activities that might make you sweat excessively. It’s also important that you continue not drinking alcohol or smoking.
When Will Results Be Noticeable?
If you’re looking for something effective, then the Juvederm lineup is fantastic. If you’re looking for something that will show you fast results, then you can count on Juvederm products to give you the results you want quickly.
As soon as you leave our clinic, you’ll see that your cheeks are more defined and voluminous. Over the next week or two, results will become even more obvious.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Almost anyone is a good candidate to receive this treatment. It’s made with an ingredient that you find naturally in your skin and is formulated to be both safe and effective. However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have had bad reactions to other fillers in the past, this product may not be right for you.
If you are overall healthy and are looking to add more volume to your cheeks for a more youthful and healthy appearance, then this is the perfect solution for you.
