Aging affects every area of your face, but when your cheeks start to look less defined than they used to, they can affect the entire proportions of your face. Thankfully, there is a dermal filler that can correct what the aging process has done to your cheeks by lifting, contouring, and defining them. At MD Age Management in Winter Park, FL, we offer Voluma, a dermal filler specifically designed to restore volume to the cheeks in one quick appointment.
How Soon Will You Get Results From Voluma?
Once injected with Juvederm Voluma, you can expect to see immediate results. You will walk in with your problem areas, have them treated, and then walk out with them corrected. However, your initial results and your final results will be slightly different. While you will get that immediate gratification from the initial plumping beneath the skin’s surface, your initial results will not be your final results.
Your Initial Results vs. Your Final Results
Juvederm fillers deliver immediate results. However, it does take some time for the clear gel ingredients to settle beneath the skin’s surface. Settling takes approximately two weeks to occur, and once you reach that point, you will see your final results.
From the point of your injection to the end of those two weeks, your results will continue to improve and look even more natural as the days go by. Once you reach the two-week point, you will see the final outcome of your injections.
What Is Voluma?
Voluma is one of the longest-lasting fillers in the Juvederm collection. It provides patients with the ability to add volume to their cheeks to lift, sculpt, and redefine their faces. The aging process takes a toll on the face and can cause the skin to sag or droop in the cheeks, making you look and feel older than you are. Voluma injections can restore youth and definition to the face and deliver some subtle and natural-looking results.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Once injected with this dermal filler, you can expect your results to last up to 24 months. That’s two full years that you will get to enjoy your contoured and lifted appearance. As soon as you notice a change in your results, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to add more filler to the area to help maintain the most consistent-looking appearance.
Will I Look Natural?
All of the Juvederm fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers that contain a synthetic version of what your body produces naturally. Once injected into the face, these fillers blend seamlessly with the skin’s structure and deliver natural and subtle-looking results.
You can rest assured that when you choose our office for your cosmetic injections, those injections will be administered by injectors skilled in the art of facial anatomy who can carefully inject in such a way that gives you the most natural-looking results possible.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Once you attend an initial consultation at our office, we will confirm you are a candidate for this dermal filler, and then we will schedule your injection appointment. Our injectors will clean your treatment sites during this appointment and then apply a topical numbing cream if needed before administering injections.
Each of the Juvederm fillers is formulated with lidocaine, a mild numbing agent it helps you feel comfortable both during and after the appointment. Once your skin is ready for treatment, your injector will administer a series of injections into your cheeks to help lift, define, and sculpt the area. Appointments only take 15 minutes to complete, and you will be free to resume your normal daily activities as soon as your appointment is complete.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime required after an injection appointment, but there are some directions you must follow to protect your skin to ensure the best results. You should keep your head elevated for several hours after your appointment.
Doing so will ensure that the filler settles and stays in the right location. Additionally, you should avoid strenuous workouts or anything that causes you to sweat, like excessive heat, sun exposure, saunas, hot tubs, or any other situation that elevates your body temperature.
Can I Combine Treatments?
Dermal fillers can be combined with other cosmetic injectables like Botox. We offer a treatment called Voluma Lift that combines this dermal filler with neuromodulators to lift and treat the entire face.
Botox treats wrinkles that form on the upper half of the face due to dynamic movements, and Juvederm fillers restore volume to the lower half of the face that has suffered from volume loss. Combining the two injectables can help you get some dramatic results that help you look more like your younger self again and maybe even better.
