Facial fullness is a sign of youthfulness. When you’re younger, your skin is supple and plump because of adequate hydration and collagen protein in the skin tissues.

However, with age, the skin’s supply of collagen begins to dwindle. The face also loses fat from the underlying facial fat layer that normally keeps it looking full and radiant.

If you’ve noticed that your cheeks look gaunt and hollow, it’s typically the result of these issues. You can address facial volume loss with the help of Juvederm Voluma.

What Is Juvederm Voluma and How Does It Work?

Voluma is a treatment from the Juvederm family of dermal fillers and was created specifically to add volume to sunken cheeks. It is made of synthetic hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that exists in the body to provide cushioning and support to the tissues and joints. When Voluma is injected into the cheeks, the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid is supplemented. The hyaluronic acid binds molecules of water, creating instant fullness in the cheeks.

Is Voluma Right for Me?

Voluma is ideal for those who are looking for effective skin treatments that do not involve any surgery. It is also perfect for those who do not wish to use skin treatments that contain harsh chemicals. Voluma can easily take years off of your appearance. You can look naturally beautiful without a puffy face.

When injected by a qualified medical professional, Voluma can be the perfect minimally invasive solution for lifting and sculpting your cheeks. The injections are almost painless. It is injected directly into deeper skin layers with fewer nerve endings, so patients typically only feel a slight prick of the syringe and virtually no pain.

There is no downtime with Voluma treatments. Because of this, you can continue with your work and normal routine immediately after the filler is injected into your cheeks. You can expect slight redness or swelling, but these subside soon after the treatment is over. Many people do not experience even minor side effects.

The Results of Voluma Treatments

Voluma not only plumps the cheeks, it also helps the cheeks appear sculpted and youthful. The cheeks can regain their lost firmness and shape with this treatment.

The results from Voluma look natural due to the use of hyaluronic acid. The filler works from under the skin layers to offer fullness to the cheeks. And because hyaluronic acid is a substance that exists naturally in the body, it doesn’t cause any allergic reactions, making Voluma a very safe treatment.

The concentration of hyaluronic acid in Voluma allows the filler to provide long-lasting results. The results can also last for up to two years. Treatments also don’t require huge quantities of the filler – a little goes a long way to add desired volume to the cheeks.
