It can be painful to see the aging process as it plays out on your face. And what makes it even worse is that you don’t notice it as it is happening to you. You can see it as it happens to other people, but as it happens to you, it is almost undetectable. It’s not until you see an image of yourself from a few years ago that you realize just how much you have aged. And it can be quite discouraging when this realization sets in. Fortunately, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a procedure that is designed to restore some of the facial volume that you lose as you get older.
The importance of having facial volume can be seen when you look at a person who everyone says has a baby face. What is it that gives this individual that young, youthful appearance? It is the fact that they have a lot of facial volume in the middle of their face. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin starts to produce less collagen. The fat in our face starts to shrink, and it actually starts to drop down.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to replace that lost facial fat, especially in the cheek area. During the initial consultation at our office, our injection specialist is going to talk to you about what you should expect from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. This is your opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals as our expert examines the condition of your skin and provides you with steps that you can follow in order to prepare for the procedure and get the best results.
The procedure itself is very straightforward. The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC solution is skillfully injected into the areas that require treatment. Although no extensive downtime is expected after JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections, it is good for you to know that minor side effects like redness are possible. However, they should go away relatively quickly.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is made of hyaluronic acid. This is a synthetic form of something that is naturally produced in your body. As a result, most people don’t have a negative reaction to treatment.
