As people get older, they start to notice a number of changes in their face. The skin starts to sag, the cheeks loose projection, lips lose volume, and wrinkles appear. These are the classic signs of aging. Thanks to Voluma and Juvederm, you can improve or reverse many of these changes with a simple office treatment.
What are Voluma & Juvederm?
Voluma and Juvederm are facial fillers made from hyaluronic acid. They’re injected into your skin in order to restore volume and remove wrinkles. They lift and contour your cheeks, add volume to your lips, and smooth out deep creases and fine lines around your mouth.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in your skin and connective tissue. It’s presence is essential for healthy. Hyauluronic acid boosts tissue regeneration, binds support structures together (such as collagen and elastin), and fortifies your skin barrier. Most importantly, hyauluronic acid is a natural moisturizer, able to hold over 1,000 times its weight in water. This is what makes young skin appear plump and supple.
You gradually lose your ability to produce hyaluronic acid as you get older. The decline starts in your late teens or early twenties, but normally doesn’t become evident until your 30s or 40s. As hyaluronic acid levels decrease, your skin loses moisture. Your cheeks appear less full and your lips get thinner.
How Effective is Voluma & Juvederm?
Voluma and Juvederm penetrate deep into the dermal and sub-dermal layers of your skin, replacing your hyaluronic acid lost to aging. The results are immediate. Your skin becomes plump, causing wrinkles to recede. The areas treated will benefit from this added volume: your cheeks fill out, the contours of your face improve, and your lips become supple.
How Long Does Voluma & Juvederm Last?
Voluma and Juvederm last for up to a year or more. A single treatment can take years off your face and restore its youthful glow.
