Hyaluronic acid fillers help add volume to the cheeks, lips, and other areas of the face. This helps adults achieve a more youthful appearance. Smile lines and small creases in the facial skin are usually the result of decreased collagen production and a loss of moisture retention. Juvederm Voluma® is a specially formulated product that increases moisture retention below the skin layers.
We often recommend dermal fillers for our clients because this type of treatment doesn’t involve surgery or abrasive resurfacing. The slight plumping effect the client experiences after acid filler injections are administered is usually enough to make the skin appear more taut and supple.
About Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
These filler gels contain tiny hyaluronic acid particles. This acid is a polysaccharide, and it is produced in small amounts by nearly every species of animal. Unfortunately, humans don’t have enough of it in their system to combat the problem of poor skin support. As we age and mature, our facial contours become sharper. Correcting this problem is a matter of attracting and holding more moisture in the subdermal tissues.
Juvederm Voluma® was developed to add volume to the cheek area. This gel formulation is rather thick, and it is most effective when injected rather deeply into the cheek area. It fills in areas where added volume is needed, and it easily binds with water molecules. Although the gel is biodegradable and is eventually flushed from the body, the water attracted to the treated area remains in place for quite some time.
A Simple Treatment
After consulting with the client and recommending an acid filler treatment, we schedule a time that is convenient. The gel is injected using specialized techniques. The treatment typically takes only minutes to complete. The acid particles immediately begin to attract and hold moisture in place. The full plumping effect is complete in just days. Folds and sags are far less noticeable, and this results in a more natural, youthful appearance.
