As we age, our skin loses its fullness and elasticity, causing our skin to lose the facial volume that is characteristic of youth. Because this aging process occurs deep within the skin, traditional cosmetics and skin regimens do little to noticeably restore the beautiful, plump contours in our mid-face. Fortunately, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment with Dr. Stuart Baker at his Decatur practice can address this concern and completely rejuvenate your look. To find out how this exciting treatment can reverse the effects of aging and boost your confidence, contact our office today.
How JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Fights the Appearance of Aging
As part of the natural aging process, the amount of hyaluronic acid (HA) in your body diminishes over time. This acid is responsible for creating a soft, supple look by drawing water to your skin. As your HA depletes, the cheeks can droop and flatten, creating a drawn and tired appearance. The good news is that JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can restore your HA levels and impart a fresher-looking appearance.
Natural-looking, Comprehensive Results
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the only FDA-approved HA gel specially formulated to correct and fill in age-related volume loss in the middle portion of your face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can add volume to your cheeks, helping to redefine and soften their slopes and contours, while creating the appearance of lifting in the area. With JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, patients can enjoy a comprehensive improvement in their appearance with a simple treatment that has virtually no down time.
Your Simple JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Procedure
Your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC procedure will first begin with a consultation. At that time, we will help determine if JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC therapy is right for you. If you are in good general health, over the age of 21, and want to plump up the volume along your cheeks, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC may be an excellent option. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is also a great alternative for people who want an anti-aging treatment that creates a subtle lift in their face, but are not ready to undergo surgery.
If you are considered a good candidate for the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the injection sites to ensure your comfort. Next, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC will be carefully injected using a very fine needle. This process results in little to no discomfort and can typically be completed in less than an hour.
After we have administered the injections, you can leave our office with immediately enhanced facial volume. Mild side effects like swelling and tenderness are temporary, and most patients can resume normal, everyday activities after 24 hours. The volumizing effects of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can last up to two years, after which point, touch-up appointments can help you maintain your youthful look.
