Are you unhappy with the way you look? Are natural side-effects of aging like a loss of volume in your face making you feel self-conscious? At Allure Laser & Med Spa in Tinley Park, IL, our Juvederm Voluma treatment can help you feel confident again.
How Long Before You See Results From Voluma?
As you’ve gotten older, you’ve probably noticed some changes to the way your skin looks and feels. You may find more wrinkles, folds, and fine lines appearing on various areas of your face. You may also have noticed that your face looks thinner and hollower as you’ve lost volume in it.
A loss of volume in your skin can seriously affect your appearance. If you’re looking for a fast but still natural-looking solution, then you’ll want to consider getting our Juvederm Voluma treatment. This dermal filler is effective and fast-acting, with results being noticeable right away.
What Is Voluma?
This is a dermal filler that’s part of the Juvederm collection. All fillers in the Juvederm collection use an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar you can find in various parts of your body. This includes your skin, your eyes, and connective tissues around your joints.
All products in the Juvederm lineup are designed to target specific concerns. Voluma is designed to add more volume to your cheek area. By adding in more volume, your skin will become tighter and smoother which will also help to diminish the appearance of jowls.
Why Does Our Skin Lose Volume?
Your skin is made up of several different chemicals. Your skin needs the proteins collagen and elastin to stay firm and elastic. It also requires hyaluronic acid to provide volume and help stay hydrated. These chemicals are plentiful in your youth, but as you get older their levels begin to lower.
This means that your skin begins to lose its structural integrity, and gravity will take a stronger hold on it. As you lose the hyaluronic acid, you also lose volume in your face, making it look thinner.
Who Should Get Voluma?
Are you wondering if you’re a good candidate for this treatment? This filler is made with an ingredient that you can find naturally in the skin, which makes it a safe option. It’s also non-allergenic, which makes it a great option if you’re sensitive to certain ingredients.
However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or you’ve reacted poorly to other Juvederm products in the past, this may not be the right solution for you. With that said, almost anyone can be a good candidate for it if they are in good overall health. The following are a few reasons why you might want to consider receiving this treatment.
You’re Concerned About Volume Loss
While it’s normal to lose volume in your face as you get older, this isn’t necessarily a welcome change. Losing volume in your cheeks can age your appearance significantly. As your skin gets looser, it can also result in jowls forming.
If this is something that concerns you, then getting this dermal filler could be the solution you’re looking for. You’ll put more volume into your cheek area, making them look plumper, more defined, and lifting any sagging skin.
You Want Something That Will Work Quickly
Getting good results is important when you’re looking for any type of treatment, cosmetic or otherwise. But there are many dermal fillers available on the market that may not work as quickly as you’d like. You may need to wait weeks to be able to see the results you want.
But if you decide to go with this dermal filler, you’ll get almost instant results. The product will take up space beneath your skin, filling in the missing volume. You’ll see a change in your skin as soon as your appointment is done, with results becoming even more apparent over the next week or so.
You Want Something That Will Last
If you want something that’s going to show results quickly, then this is the filler for you. It’s also perfect for those who are looking for something that’s going to last a long time. Many fillers and injectables last just a few weeks. This might be fine for candidates who want something very temporary.
But if you want something that’s going to provide you with long-lasting results, this filler is the right choice for you. Most patients are able to enjoy the results of their treatment for anywhere between 6 months to 2 years.
You Want a Safe Solution
There are lots of dermal fillers and injectables out there. But not all of them will be safe for everyone. If you’ve tried other injectables in the past and have had bad reactions to them, then this filler might be a better solution for you.
This filler contains an ingredient that you can already find in various parts of your body. It’s FDA approved and offers a safe solution for anyone who’s looking for a way to fill in any volume they may have lost in their cheeks.
What Is Treatment Like?
When you come to our clinic to receive your injections, you’ll know that you’re in good, safe hands. We will do everything we can to make sure that your experience with us is comfortable, safe, and that you get the best results from your treatment.
Before we are able to set you up with your appointment for your injections, we’ll need to start you with a consultation. During your consultation, we’ll discuss what your specific concerns are and help you set realistic expectations for your treatment. We’ll also look over your medical history to make sure that this treatment is right for you.
Once we’ve covered these basics, we’ll make your appointment and provide you with instructions on how you can prepare.
Preparing for Treatment
Getting ready for your injections is easy and will require very little effort on your part. There are just a few things you’ll need to be mindful of in the week leading up to your appointment. Following these instructions will ensure that your treatment is as safe and effective as it can be.
For the week before your injections, make sure you are not taking any supplements or medications that might act as blood thinners. This includes aspirin and ibuprofen. For the 24 to 48 hours before your injections, you should also cut out alcohol and smoking.
When you come for your appointment, we’ll make sure that every step of the process is safe and comfortable for you. Before we apply the injections, we’ll start by preparing your skin. We’ll do this by carefully cleaning the areas where you’ll be receiving the injections to remove any dirt or grime. To help keep the treatment as comfortable as possible, we might also apply a topical numbing cream.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the injections. We’ll inject small amounts at a time strategically to make sure that you get the subtle-looking results you want. Your entire treatment should take less than an hour.
After Your Treatment
As soon as your appointment is done, you’ll be able to leave our clinic. There are just a few things you’ll need to do to help your skin recover quickly and help your results be as effective as possible.
For the next week or so, continue avoiding certain medications, as well as tobacco and alcohol. Don’t perform any strenuous physical activity or stay out in direct sunlight.
Other Types of Juvederm
Voluma is a great way to put volume back into your cheeks. But if your cheeks aren’t your only concern, you might also want to consider one of the other types of Juvederm.
This type of Juvederm is designed to target your nose and mouth area. Specifically, it will help get rid of nasolabial folds, or smile lines.
Volbella is designed to target your lips. If you have thin lips, this filler will help put more volume back into them. It can also be used to enhance your lips, making them look more defined.
