Have you noticed some signs of aging like your cheeks thinning? At Priority You in Clearwater, FL, we have the perfect solution to all your aging concerns. This is everything you need to know about our Juvederm Voluma treatment and how they can help you.
How Long Does Voluma Last?
If you want to get back the volume that you’ve lost in your cheeks due to aging, this dermal filler is ready to offer you the perfect solution. Voluma is part of Juvederm’s lineup of dermal fillers, and it’s a highly effective way to help your face look younger.
Different people will be able to enjoy their results for different amounts of time. How long your results last will depend on how much of the product you’ve had injected as well as how your skin reacts to it.
Why Is My Face Losing Volume?
Several chemicals present in your skin help it to maintain its appearance and texture. One of these chemicals is hyaluronic acid. This sugar can be found in other areas of your body as well and works by attracting and attaching itself to moisture molecules.
In your skin, this helps it stay hydrated and maintains its natural protective barrier. It also provides fullness. The older you get, the less good your body becomes at producing its own hyaluronic acid. This results in your face starting to look thinner.
What Is Voluma?
This dermal filler belongs to the Juvederm collection, a group of hyaluronic acid-based fillers that are designed to help you reverse the natural effects of aging. It’s a non-invasive treatment, with the product being injected into your desired areas with a small needle.
Once injected, the hyaluronic acid in the Juvederm product of your choice performs a couple of tasks. First, it helps your face appear fuller by adding more volume to the area. Second, hyaluronic acid can also stimulate collagen production which will help your skin stay firm and elastic.
What Are the Benefits?
No Extensive Preparation
With some treatments and procedures, you may need to spend a long time preparing for your appointment. That’s not the case with this treatment. Getting ready for your injections is easy and fast.
You’ll just need to make sure you avoid a few things in the 24 the 48 hours before your appointment. This includes anything that could act as a blood thinner like alcohol and tobacco. The same is true of some over-the-counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen as well as certain supplements like vitamin E.
Treatment Is Fast and Easy
The process itself of getting your treatment will be super simple and comfortable. Before we inject the product, we’ll carefully clean the areas where you’ll be receiving treatment. This is to get rid of any bacteria around the injection sites.
We’ll then begin applying the needle to your desired areas. We’ll inject small amounts at a time so we can ensure you’re getting the precise results you want. This formula is made with lidocaine, which is a painkiller so you’ll feel no pain during your treatment. As soon as it’s complete, you can leave the clinic.
Recovery Is Minimal
Don’t want to have to deal with an extensive, uncomfortable, or even painful recovery period after your treatment? Consider getting any Juvederm product. Because the only thing that’s used to perform the treatment is a small needle, the recovery process is minimal and low-maintenance.
You can get back to your regular life as long as you remember a couple of important instructions. You’ll have to avoid staying out in direct sunlight as well as any extreme changes in temperature for the next week or so. You should also refrain from doing any strenuous physical activity.
Your Cheeks Will Be Fuller
This Juvederm formula is specifically designed to target your cheeks. Your cheeks tend to show volume loss pretty dramatically since they’re naturally one of the fullest parts of your face. The thinner they get, the older your face is going to look, and you may not appreciate how gaunt you appear.
Voluma puts this lost volume back into your cheeks, making them appear fuller and rounder again. An additional benefit is that this filler can help add more definition to your cheekbones as well.
You’ll Reduce the Appearance of Jowls
As your skin loses both volume and elasticity with age, you’ll start to notice the skin around your jawline beginning to sag. This can result in jowls forming, which many people don’t appreciate to look of.
If you’re looking for a solution to this issue, Voluma could be exactly what you need. Once you inject it into your cheeks, this will lift them and reduce the appearance of your jowls, possibly even eliminating them. By doing this, you’ll also be smoothing out and adding more definition to your jawline.
Treatment Looks Natural
Before we set you up with your appointment, we’ll consult with you to discuss your desires, concerns, and goals with this treatment. This gives us the opportunity to determine what results you want to see so we can customize your treatment plan effectively.
No matter how major or minor you want the changes in your face to be, we’ll make sure that you love the way you look after treatment. You can also expect your results to look natural, giving you a younger overall appearance without worrying about your face looking like plastic.
You Can Combine It With Other Treatments
Depending on what results you want to get from your treatment, we may recommend combining it with another treatment. For instance, we can also inject a neuromodulator like Botox into your desired areas to help prevent the muscles in the area from over-contracting.
This will provide you with even more dramatic results. During your consultation, once we go over what your goals are, we’ll tell you if we think you could benefit from additional treatments.
Get Results Right Away
If you’re feeling self-conscious about the way you look because of concerns like wrinkling and sagging, it makes sense to want to see a change as quickly as possible. Some treatments can take a long time to get you the results you want.
But you don’t need to wait when you get this treatment. As soon as it’s injected, the hyaluronic acid in the product takes up space, lifting and smoothing skin. Over the next week or so, your results will continue to improve.
Almost Everyone Is a Candidate
Because this treatment’s main ingredient is something you can find already naturally in your skin, it’s safe for almost anyone to get. As long as you are not sensitive to lidocaine, you’re not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you don’t have skin issues like eczema around the areas you want to be treated, you could be a perfect candidate.
How Do I Get My Results To Last Longer?
Maintain a Skincare Routine
Do you have a regular skincare routine in place? If you don’t, now is the time to get started. Maintaining a healthy routine before and after you get your Juvederm treatments will help your results be as effective as possible while also ensuring that they last.
This means washing your face with a quality cleanser twice a day as well as remembering to apply a moisturizer.
Protect Your Skin From the Sun
As nice as being out in sunlight feels, spending excessive amounts of time in the sun can have an extremely damaging effect on your skin. This is why it’s important to protect your skin when you go outside.
Wearing sunscreen with at least 30SPF when you go outside and limiting your exposure will help you maintain the results of your treatment.
Keep Up With a Healthy Lifestyle
In general, you should try to maintain an overall healthy and active lifestyle. Not only will this help your treatment results stay as long as possible, but you’ll find that you generally feel better.
Getting in regular exercise and eating right are all components of a healthy lifestyle. Eating lean proteins will also help support your skin’s collagen production, ensuring that your treatment is as effective as it can be.
