Definition - What does Juvederm Voluma mean?
Juvederm Voluma is a type of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid that is injected deep in the subcutaneous fat under the skin targeting the areas with volume loss, unlike superficial injections a patient would get with wrinkle correction treatments. It can be injected into cheekbones to enhance them and give them a nice oval shape.
In cases of sunken cheeks, mostly in thin people, Juvederm Voluma is used to restore volume along the jaw to emphasize the outline of the face, in the lower part of eye sockets to correct possible tear-trough deformity, as well as other parts of the face depending on each patient's needs and desires.
TheConsultation explains Juvederm Voluma
What makes Juvederm Voluma unique is its ability to naturally change the structure of facial aesthetic units within minutes. The difference of this material from the other fillers is that it's more compact as hyaluronic acid is designed to restore larger tissue deficiencies and more extended volume loss.
Juvederm Voluma can be applied to any patient over 21 years of age, with no contraindication to its use. The application is done in private practice within a short wait time, plus with no pain during the procedure, there's an impressive, noticeable change of the face. If the treatment is performed by a board-certified physician, and the patient follows all instructions, it's a very safe process. The only complication might be a little bruising that should fade quickly. The results last about 18 months.
