Juvederm Voluma: An Overview

Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler used to enhance facial areas. Rather than filling wrinkles, Voluma is designed to restore lost facial volume, including sunken cheeks that can occur with aging or after losing significant weight. The effects of such loss may occur unequally, and Juvederm Voluma helps to restore a balanced appearance.

The filler is made from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and is generally well tolerated. It also contains cross-linked sugar chains for added tissue support, but Voluma uses shorter chains than other products for a lighter-weight filler that produces smooth, even results.

The facial areas most commonly treated include hollows in the chin, cheekbones and cheeks. At times, Juvederm Voluma can also help contour the jaw line. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved this product as a filler for cheek areas.

A certified injection specialist in a certified facial aesthetic practice injects the filler deep into tissues where it supports the layers of skin and restores a youthful appearance. There is no recovery time needed, and there is usually little discomfort. There may be a bit of redness, swelling or tenderness, but these are usually mild. Juvederm Voluma results can last up to 2 years, the longest of any dermal filler on the market.


Juvederm Voluma for Cheeks

Full cheeks are a signature trait of a youthful appearance, but they tend to deplete in volume as people age. This can change the shape of a person’s face entirely. Regaining and maintaining youthful cheeks is not as difficult as most people assume.

Juvederm Voluma’s effectiveness is apparent in numerous before and after photos and in patient testimonials found across the web. This hyaluronic acid facial filler has been on the market long enough to show its impressive history of success. It has also been approved by the FDA. The formula was designed especially to replace volume loss in the cheeks and chin, and it is made from a type of sugar that is created naturally by human skin. With Juvederm Voluma injections, patients see fuller cheeks immediately. Since the formula is designed to fuse with the skin’s collagen and elastin, the result is a completely natural appearance. Every person’s medical history and needs are unique, so contact us for a personalized consultation in our Santa Monica or Portland facial aesthetic practices.


Juvederm: What You Need to Know

No matter what kind of lifestyle you live, the signs of aging are inevitable for everyone. While there are lifestyle changes you can make to lessen the effects of aging, to have more confidence in your appearance, Juvederm may be a great option.

Juvederm is designed to specifically target fine lines around the eyes and mouth. These small lines can have a real impact on one’s appearance, and Juvederm has been shown to dramatically reduce the appearance of these lines.

Like other beauty treatments, Juvederm is available as an injection. In order to fill wrinkles from under the skin, Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid. This chemical is made naturally in the body, which means that injecting more into the skin is very safe and effective. In order to work more efficiently, Juvederm is made as a gel, which then fills in the wrinkles to create a smooth surface on the skin.

As with any beauty procedure, most people have a lot of questions about safety and efficacy. Juvederm has been fully approved by the FDA and has been widely used in the United States since 2006. All procedures should be performed by a certified injection specialist at a facial aesthetics practice.


Juvederm vs. Restylane

Juvederm and Restylane have many elements in common, but there are a few key differences.

Both Juvederm and Restylane are made from synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the human body. The synthetic nature removes nearly all allergens so that both products are considered very safe. Juvederm adds cross-linked sugar chains for added tissue support, which give it a very smooth texture. Restylane contains small, granular particles that are not as smooth but are still very effective.

Both products treat creases alongside the mouth known as naso-labial folds. They also treat wrinkles in other facial areas and can be used for lip enhancement. Additionally, Juvederm has a product that helps fill facial hollows and restore balanced contours.

Because of its smooth texture, Juvederm doesn’t require any molding after injection. It diffuses easily and is less likely to form bumps, which makes it the better choice for very fine enhancements. Restylane requires some shaping after injection, but it tends to stay where it’s put once it’s molded; Restylane is generally better for building larger areas.

Both products may cause slight swelling, redness or tenderness. Restylane treatments generally last about six months. Juvederm treatments can last as long as 12 months.


Juvederm for the Lips

Why Juvederm?
As we age, our skin tends to become thinner and less elastic. Lips and cheeks that were once plump and youthful may become thin and less appealing. For this reason, many women (and yes, some men) turn to certified injection specialists for corrective treatment.

JUVÉDERM® XC , made by Allergan Inc. of Irvine, California, is FDA-approved for human use as a popular dermal filler in Santa Monica and Portland, Oregon. Juvéderm XC is often used as an injection to plump lips. Made with natural hyaluronic acid Juvéderm provides natural-looking results that can last for up to a year.

Hyaluronic acid
The main reason skin thins with age is due to a loss of hyaluronic acid. This naturally-occurring substance provides lubrication of the joints and eyes and is partially responsible for the elasticity of the skin and the plumpness of young lips.

Juvéderm lips are not just for celebrities
Stars of the silver screen are not the only people who wish to present their most youthful appearance. Consult with a skilled certified injection specialist to learn more about what Juvéderm cosmetic filler can do for you.


Juvederm Side Effects

Juvederm is a dermal filler — made from synthetic hyaluronic acid — that helps smooth facial wrinkles and creases. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body, and its synthetic counterpart holds large amounts of water, which produces a plumping effect when injected under the skin. Over roughly 9 to 12 months, Juvederm simply dissipates into the body. Juvederm’s synthetic nature makes it highly hypoallergenic, and complications are generally mild.

As with any medical procedure, there can be side effects. The most common ones include some redness and tenderness at the injection site; there may also be slight pain or stinging. These are all temporary and should subside within a few days. In rare cases, reversible skin discoloration may occur around the treatment area. Juvederm is very smooth and only very rarely results in firmness or bumps under the skin. If these do occur, they should settle within a week of treatment. Any swelling or bruising should likewise resolve within about seven days.

In extremely rare cases, Juvederm may cause an allergic reaction, and affected patients should seek immediate medical care. The best way to minimize side effects is to receive Juvederm treatment only from a certified injection specialist and be sure to include a full medical history during your consultation.


FDA-approved Juvederm Voluma

It can take years for a product or medical device to receive approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration. In 2013, California-based Allergan Inc. received such approval for a remarkable new dermal filler known as Juvéderm Voluma.

Dr. Derek H. Jones is the founder and director of Skin Care and Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills and was the chief investigator of the study that was a crucial factor in the Juvéderm Voluma FDA approval process. Upon approval he had this to say about the new, one-of-a-kind facial filling gel:

“In the JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC clinical trial, physicians and patients were able to see instant and visible results, including correction of age-related volume loss in the cheek area and a more youthful appearance to the face.”

In this 21st century there is no reason anyone has to live with sagging facial skin, deep wrinkles or volume loss in the cheeks if they don’t want to. According to the above-mentioned study, the majority of people who receive Juvéderm injections suffered little or no side effects. Of course, no medical product is right for everyone, so it’s important that you consult with a skilled certified injection specialist prior to receiving Juvéderm Voluma or any other injectable filler.


Juvederm Voluma Problems

All medications and medical procedures come with the risk of potential side effects. Juvederm Voluma is no exception to this rule, but it is possible for patients to mitigate their risks.

Side effects that may be experienced following a Juvederm Voluma treatment include bruising, swelling, redness and bumps at the site of the injection. These side effects are temporary. Choosing a certified injection specialist helps to reduce the severity of these potential side effects.

The best way to avoid problems with Juvederm Voluma is by ensuring that the treatment is a good fit. People who have experienced severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis at any point in their lives are typically advised to avoid this treatment option.

A consultation with a certified injection specialist allows patients to avoid side effects. Information related to medical history is used to determine whether the treatment is not appropriate for the individual. Choosing a facial aesthetics practice that focuses on patient safety allows individuals to find their best options when it comes to injectable wrinkle and fine line treatments.


Juvederm Voluma Reviews

Juvéderm Voluma has only been approved for use since 2013, but the reviews are already coming in and the news is exciting. From what we gather, the majority of women and men who have received injections of Juvéderm Voluma are quite pleased with both the injection procedure and the youthful results.

When used as directed and administered by a certified professional facial injection specialist, Juvéderm Voluma provides a quick remedy for age-related volume loss. A typical Juvéderm treatment requires only around fifteen minutes, and the results may last as long as two years.

Made with naturally-derived hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm Voluma is injected deeply under the skin where it goes to work plumping sunken cheeks and eliminating the appearance of facial sags and wrinkles while promoting the body’s natural production of collagen.

Made by the same company that brought Botox to the world of cosmetic enhancement, Juvéderm Voluma promises a bit of the magic one might expect from a fountain of youth. To know more about Juvéderm products and to find out if they’re right for you, please consult with a skilled injection specialist or nurse injector in our Portland or Santa Monica locations.


How much does Juvederm Voluma cost?

The answer to this question will be very different from person to person for several reasons. Different certified injection specialists have varying levels of experience. Those who are relatively new to cosmetic injectables tend to charge the least. Therefore, if you are seeking a nurse injector who has several years of experience, you may wish to choose someone who charges a higher price.

Another important factor in the price of Juvederm Voluma is geographical location. The average cost for this procedure is around $1,325, but people in Tampa, Florida are routinely charged approximately $900. Patients in Toronto, Ontario, Canada receive this treatment for about the same price. A patient considering this solution in Atlanta, Georgia may pay as much as $1,000 for one session.

How much Juvederm Voluma you will need to correct your issues will also help determine how much you will pay for it. If the volume loss in your face is minor, you will not require as much Juvederm Voluma, so your price can be lower. Those who need a little more will, naturally, pay a higher price.

Although price is important, it must not be the only factor you consider when you begin to seek the right certified injection specialist for your needs.


Fuller Cheeks with Juvederm Voluma XC

For years, people have been turning to Juvederm for their beauty needs. As an injectable filler, Juvederm is used to successfully treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. However, the effects of aging are rarely limited to those areas. That is why Juvederm Voluma XC is such an exciting product.

Like the original, Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable filler made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of the body’s rejuvenation cycle, which means all Juvederm fillers play to the body’s natural strengths. When injected into the skin, Juvederm products can fill in fine lines and wrinkles. The result is smoother skin for a renewed, youthful appearance.

Despite these benefits, Juvederm had limited applications beyond the eyes and mouth. That is no longer the case with Juvederm Voluma XC. This new variation of Juvederm has been approved by the FDA to work on the cheeks. Now with a simple injection, it is possible to have fuller, rounder cheeks for a rejuvenated appearance.

Juvederm Voluma XC is a safe and reliable way to get long lasting results. Be sure to consult a certified injection specialist before making any decisions about cosmetic procedures.
