When your skin starts to lose volume, it can be discouraging, especially if you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on firming and volumizing creams that have failed to deliver on their promises. If this sounds like you, and you’re starting to look older than you feel, what you need is something more reliable and longer-lasting, like a dermal filler. Nouveau MedSpa and Salon in Chubbuck, ID can give you what you need for firmer, younger-looking skin with Juvederm Voluma XC. Read on to find out 10 amazing benefits of this treatment.
10 Amazing Benefits of Juvederm Voluma XC
1. It’s Safe
Voluma is part of Juvederm’s FDA-approved line of dermal fillers, and it is used to restore lost volume around the cheeks. The injection is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical in the body that contributes to tissue repair, skin elasticity, and moisture. The injection replaces the hyaluronic acid that your skin has lost over time, which encourages the reproduction of collagen and restores skin elasticity for a more youthful appearance.
While there are other dermal fillers out there that tout their volume-enhancing properties, Voluma is the only filler of its kind that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Multiple tests and studies have been performed on Juvederm’s fillers to earn this status, and no major side effects have been reported.
2. It’s Fast-Acting
Unlike topical hyaluronic acid creams that may never show results, with this treatment, you will see a noticeable difference in your skin within minutes. However, you can expect to see the final results in about a month as the hyaluronic acid continues to do its magic. Because of hyaluronic acid’s effect on collagen production, you won’t need to worry about the results fading for quite some time.
3. It’s Long-Lasting
Most dermal fillers last for less than a year, but Juvederm Voluma XC can last for up to 24 months. To ensure you get the most out of your treatment, a touch-up after six to nine months is recommended. Also, if you’ve been using hyaluronic acid-based creams for anti-aging, you’ll know that even if they work, you’ll have to reapply constantly to keep the effects going. Opting for a dermal filler instead will save you a lot of disappointment and frustration for up to two years at a time!
4. It’s Moisturizing
If your skin is dry and losing volume, this treatment will fix both of those things. The moisturizing effect comes from hyaluronic acid, which contributes to the skin’s natural moisture. As you age, your body creates less hyaluronic acid, which results in dry and sagging skin. With this treatment, you will not only see firmer and smoother skin but also dewier skin as well.
5. It’s Time-Saving
Because of its anti-aging properties, this treatment will make you look years younger, so you’ll probably find yourself spending less time in front of the mirror in the morning. If you wear makeup and you’ve been using contouring techniques to make yourself look younger, you will no longer need to do that, because this treatment creates that youthful contour for you. Not only that, but the treatment itself usually takes less than half an hour, so you don’t need to worry about setting aside too much time for your appointments.
6. It’s Pain-Free
If you’re worried about the pain associated with injections, rest assured that we are committed to keeping you comfortable during the treatment. Juvederm’s fillers contain lidocaine, which is a gentle anesthetic that numbs the area that’s being worked on.
7. It’s Non-Invasive
Because dermal fillers are administered through injection, incisions are not required for this treatment. You don’t have to worry about the infections or scarring that can happen with invasive cosmetic procedures.
8. It’s Recovery-Free
Traditional facelift procedures can have recovery periods that last as long as 30 days and may require pain medication. (Also, this method doesn’t restore your volume!) In contrast, dermal fillers require no special recovery time whatsoever. Remember, however, that although there is no recovery time, it does require some maintenance, especially during the 24 hours after your treatment.
We recommend that you avoid any activities that may age your skin, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, or going out in the sun without sunscreen. Staying hydrated is also a plus: drink more water and moisturize your skin!
9. It’s Affordable
You don’t need to worry about breaking the bank with this treatment. More often than not, cosmetic procedures such as facelifts are not covered by insurance and are typically too expensive for most people to pay for out of pocket. However, dermal filler treatments are just a fraction of the cost of a traditional facelift. You don’t have to break the bank, and you will get better results.
10. It’s Basically Magic
After receiving this treatment, you will look years younger. The more collagen you lose in your cheeks, the older you look. But because Voluma restores the collagen in your cheeks, your face will look rounder, smoother, and younger. With this treatment, you will no longer look older than you feel. This will bring you the confidence you need to live your life to the fullest.
