When you look at yourself in the mirror, it is easy to think that the wrinkles that show on your face are just part of the natural aging process. And while it is true that as we age, we develop more wrinkles, the reality is a lot more complex. Research shows that people do not age at the same speed throughout their life. Also, not all of your face ages at the same rate. If you are dealing with volume loss in the cheek area, Juvederm Voluma® may be able to help you.
The most dramatic reason for the loss of mid-facial volume is yo-yo dieting. When you lose weight and then you gain it back and complete this process repeatedly, it has a negative effect on the ligaments and other structures supporting tissues in your face. Eventually, these tissues become lax, and this leads to your face drooping. Secondary factors that lead to spurts in aging are stressful life events.
Using dermal fillers such as Juvederm Voluma® is an excellent way for you to restore your facial volume in this area. When you use Juvederm Voluma® in your cheeks, you will find that the definition you lost due to aging is restored. You will also find that any lines and wrinkles in this area are filled in.
Juvederm Voluma® treatments are not designed to take a 45-year-old individual and make them look like they are 25. However, what they can do is make you look like a 45-year-old who has healthy facial volume and who has fewer wrinkles. In short, it makes you look like the best version of yourself for your age.
One of the nice things about Juvederm Voluma® is that it is administered on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our office. You can immediately go back to work or return to most of your everyday activities following the treatment session. You will be amazed at the powerful effect Juvederm Voluma® can have at restoring your facial volume and giving you back the youthful appearance you have lost.
