What makes a face look youthful and radiant? It’s not just one thing: it’s a combination of factors, including facial volume, that can determine how young — or old — a face appears.
A young face has natural plumpness in the cheeks that gives a lifted, healthy appearance. Conversely, shallow cheeks can give a sunken, older appearance that can’t be corrected with good skin care or surgery. Unfortunately, a normal side effect of aging is loss of facial volume. That’s where Juvederm® Voluma XC comes in.
What is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma XC is the latest dermal filler to be offered at Monarch Plastic Surgery, and it specifically addresses loss of volume in the apples of the cheeks. It provides instant results (so you still have time to look amazing for that holiday party) and the effects last up to two years.
Juvederm Voluma is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. You may see HA listed as an ingredient in many high-end skin care products, as it is very effective at helping skin maintain softness and moisture. When injected into the cheek area, it provides fullness and volume for a youthful look.
Getting it done right
As with any dermal filler, your results will depend heavily upon the skill of your injector. A qualified nurse injector will be able to determine the appropriate amount of filler to use and to apply it in the right places for optimal results. This is why it’s important to have any dermal filler performed at a reputable plastic surgery office, where aesthetic procedures are the specialty.
Combining with other procedures
One of the advantages to a filler like Juvederm Voluma is that it pairs well with other procedures to give you a more dramatic facial rejuvenation. For instance, some people who are undergoing a Monarch Mini Facelift may opt for a filler such as Juvederm as well. They complement with each other: one procedure tightens and reduces wrinkles, while the other adds volume. Likewise with Botox®. While Botox works well for smoothing the upper part of the face (forehead and between the eyes), a filler like Juvederm Voluma can add volume and give the cheeks a softer, younger appearance. Of course, Juvederm Voluma can work well as a standalone procedure too.
If you’re thinking about a dermal filler or other skin rejuvenation procedure, consider speaking with a qualified skin care expert to get advice on what will work best for you. With all the treatments available today to give you a more radiant appearance with minimal downtime, you have a number of options to consider. You deserve a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs and wishes.
