The skin is constantly exposed to harsh environmental elements, including dangerous UV rays. Over time, these elements damage the skin and begin to have an impact on a person’s appearance. However, it is not just external forces that cause the skin to change. As a person ages, changes taking place inside the body also affect the way the skin looks and feels. One common side effect of aging is a decrease of hyaluronic acid in the body. Hyaluronic acid draws water to the body and helps keep the skin supple and fresh.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is a gel injection containing hyaluronic acid that adds volume to sunken facial features while restoring moisture to the skin for a fresher, more youthful appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ candidates at Dr. Stuart Baker’s Champaign, IL practice can safely and effectively improve facial contours and revitalize the skin.
Am I a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ Candidate?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ contains a modified version of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is made up largely of a substance that is already found in the body, the risk of an allergic reaction to this product is extremely low. As a result, virtually any patient should be able to safely undergo JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ treatment. The only requirements are that the patient is aged 21 or older and is in good overall health.
If these basic requirements are met, then JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ may be an ideal solution for any patient with the following concerns:
- Lack of facial fullness: Most people work hard to keep the body trim, but one area you want to maintain fullness is the face. If the face lacks volume, skin is more likely to sag and facial features will look aged and worn down. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ injections restore volume to deflated facial features. With JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ injections, Dr. Baker can improve facial contours and sculpt a fuller, healthier looking face.
- Sagging skin: Without moisture and collagen, two substances that diminish as a person ages, the skin will lack volume. Most people assume that the only way to treat drooping skin is with cosmetic treatments, such as a face lift. However, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ effectively fills out facial features, which serves to lift and refresh saggy skin without the need for invasive plastic surgery.
- Hollow cheeks: Hollow, sunken cheeks can make a person look tired and worn down. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is the only FDA-approved HA gel that is specifically formulated to restore volume to the cheeks. With JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ treatment, patients can restore fuller cheeks that complement the overall shape of the face and help create a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Any patient with these concerns is likely to benefit from the results of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ treatment. However, the only way to determine for sure if JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Baker to discuss your aesthetic goals.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is a safe and effective alternative to cosmetic surgery that restores volume and freshness to facial features.
