The signs of aging are not limited to just fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, you may notice your cheeks flattening, or your facial skin beginning to sag. If you’re noticing those tell-tale aging symptoms, contact board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Bootstaylor. We provide Juvéderm® Voluma treatments to patients living in and around Buckhead, Atlanta, Marietta, and Sandy Springs.
What is Juvéderm® Voluma?
Juvéderm® Voluma is an FDA approved Juvéderm® product, designed to enhance the cheeks and mid-face area. These treatments are specifically beneficial for healthy men and women over the age of 21 who have shallow cheek areas or who have lost skin volume in those areas because of aging.
Juvéderm® Voluma is a facial filler injectable gel containing hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid, which is basically a long chain of sugars in the body, is what keeps the skin hydrated as well as looking and feeling soft and supple.
What are the Benefits of Juvéderm® Voluma?
- FDA approved to restore lost cheek volume due to aging
- Noticeable results immediately following treatment
- Little to no downtime – most can resume normal activities within 24 hours
- Long lasting results
How Does Juvéderm® Voluma Work?
Over time, our skin loses its elasticity due to decreasing amounts of hyaluronic acid, which serves to hydrate the skin and keep it lifted and supple. Juvéderm® Voluma replaces the lost hyaluronic acid and binds with water in the body, returning lost volume to the skin and leaving the face looking plumper and better contoured. This gives your face a softer, younger-looking appearance.
Fine-needle syringes are injected into the skin above your cheekbone, restoring volume to your face almost immediately. Juvéderm® Voluma is available with or without lidocaine, making the procedure virtually painless if desired.
Is Juvéderm® Voluma Right for Me?
Because Juvéderm® Voluma contains a naturally occurring substance in the form of hyaluronic acid particles, most healthy adult men and women who have cheekbones with poor definition or those who have lost volume in the mid-face region can benefit from Juvéderm® Voluma treatment.
During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss all your options with you and help you determine if Juvéderm® Voluma is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and personal aesthetic goals.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, injectable dermal fillers should not be used. They should also be avoided if you’re on, or have recently used, blood thinners.
