Juvederm Voluma XC is a dermal filler manufactured by Allergan, the makers of Botox. It is made with proprietary VYCROSS technology that makes it better than alternative dermal fillers designed to enhance your appearance. Today, our aesthetic experts at Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NY discuss nine reasons you should get this treatment.
9 Reasons to Get Voluma Treatments
1. You Can Lift Your Cheeks
One of the most compelling reasons to get Voluma treatments is you can use this injectable to lift your cheeks. This injectable is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that immediately improves your appearance as the injected hyaluronic acid (HA) attracts water, temporarily replacing lost collagen or fat. This volume addition results in a slight lifting of the cheeks.
Furthermore, at the time of injection, collagen growth is stimulated and existing collagen is reinforced through chemical reactions. Collagen is a special type of protein that makes up most of the supporting structure of your skin. Between the reinforcement of existing collagen and the production of extra collagen in the area, your skin continues to lift and tighten over the course of a couple of weeks.
2. You Can Augment Your Cheeks
Whether you have lost weight naturally as you aged, lost a significant amount of weight due to illness or have lost volume in your cheeks due to collagen loss, this treatment can be used to augment your cheeks. Remember, you will benefit immediately from a slight increase in volume. However, it’s important to remember that you won’t see the final results of your treatment immediately. Your appearance will continue to improve over time.
3. You Can Improve the Appearance of Your Cheekbones
A third reason to get this treatment is it enhances the appearance of your cheekbones. By receiving this medication in strategic locations in the midface, your cheekbones can take on a rejuvenated appearance. Even if you’re not concerned about looking more youthful, this medication can be used to create a more feminine or masculine appearance depending on where the medication is injected.
4. This Treatment Is Completely Pain-Free
A fourth reason to get this treatment is it is completely pain-free. Each syringe contains a small amount of an injectable anesthetic, lidocaine. Lidocaine numbs the treatment area almost instantly and the results of the medication last for 30 minutes after the session is over so there is no risk of feeling any pain or discomfort.
5. You Are Probably a Good Candidate for Treatment
A fifth reason to get this treatment is you are probably a good candidate. You can undergo invasive procedures to augment and lift your cheeks that involve a six-week long recovery process, the implantation of plastic and the lifting and stitching of the cheek skin. However, you have to be pretty healthy to be considered a good candidate for cheek augmentation or a cheek lift because such procedures require intubation to receive general anesthesia.
Intubation places enormous strain on the heart and lungs. In contrast, people who aren’t healthy enough for intubation are often healthy enough for non-invasive anti-aging injectables. If you’re at least 21 years of age, not allergic to lidocaine and not pregnant, there is a very good chance that you will be perfect for this treatment.
6. The Results of Treatment Are Durable
You should also consider this non-invasive injectable to lift and augment your cheeks because the results are incredibly durable. Some hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers only last six months but the results of this injectable, manufactured with special cross-stitching technology, last an incredible two years.
7. This Treatment Is Completely Safe
Juvederm Voluma XC is completely safe. It was approved by the FDA for safety and efficacy in 2013 and since then it has been used in 72 countries. Despite all of the injections that have been made over the past eight years and counting, there have been no reports of bad reactions to the injectable. Essentially, an eight-year, world-wide case study has been performed, reporting no dangerous effects.
8. This Treatment Can Erase Smile Lines and Mild Nasolabial Folds
What sets this injectable apart from similar dermal fillers is the effects it has on the cheeks extends beyond the cheeks. When the medication is injected into the midface, the fibroblasts, special cells that secrete special protein, are stretched. This results in extra collagen growth in the region and the effect of the skin tightening is significant enough that smile lines are erased. Furthermore, these injections smooth mild nasolabial folds without being injected directly into the folds.
9. This Treatment Is Incredibly Convenient
Yet another reason to get this treatment is it is incredibly convenient. The treatment takes only 25 minutes, and there is no downtime. Moreover, you can safely drive yourself to work as soon as the treatment is over.
