With their rise in popularity in recent years, cosmetic procedures to look great have never been easier or more available. Getting older causes the skin to lose elastin and begin to sag. With products like Juvederm Voluma to restore volume to these problem areas, you can revive your aging skin in just a few visits to your Encino, CA dermatologist at AE Skin.
What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvederm is a dermal filler injected into the facial area to restore volume to aging skin. Juvaderm itself is a smooth gel made from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your body and decreases as you grow older. Your Encino dermatologist injects Juvederm into the skin on the face to replace the lost hyaluronic acid. Once injected, it adds volume to the skin, providing a plumper and smoother appearance.
What problems can Juvederm Voluma treat?
Juvederm focuses mainly on restoring fullness to the lips, nasolabial folds, also called “smile” or “parenthesis” lines, and cheeks. Unlike Botox, which prevents the muscles from moving, Juvederm fills sagging skin to restore its fullness. While other fillers or injectables may need regular sessions to achieve their goal, Juvaderm’s design has proven to provide long-lasting results. Results can last up to two years, allowing you to undergo fewer treatments over a longer period of time.
What can I expect during Juvederm Voluma treatment?
The treatment itself is fast and performed in-office by your Encino doctor. You will see results immediately. There is no recovery time required after your treatment and you can get back to your daily routine as soon as you leave your doctor’s office. Your doctor uses a syringe with a tiny needle to inject the gel to minimize discomfort. Numbing agents applied to the skin may also help decrease discomfort.
