Age shows up on the face in a number of ways. While certain muscles of the face become overly toned due to constant use, others are used so infrequently that they fade away. Decreased production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid also affects the appearance of skin. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to reduce these effects, and many of them are quick, convenient, and effective. One popular treatment is called Juvederm.
As science has developed innovative new ways to manage the signs of aging, we have been fortunate enough to see products designed for specific concerns. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a product manufactured and approved for the improvement of mid-face volume. At the Lombardi Institute of Dermatology, we are proud to offer this rejuvenating treatment for our patients.
What is Juvederm VOLUMA® XC?
Juvederm VOLUMA® XC is the only drug to hold FDA-approval for the sole purpose of restoring healthy, youthful contours to your cheeks. As we age, several factors cause a shift in contouring, lending us a distinctive aged and tired appearance.
Features such as the cheeks and jawline flatten out, and may even look somewhat droopy over time. In a short treatment session, patients of Tampa dermatologist Dr. Lombardi can regain the plump, defined cheeks that add youthfulness to the face. Enhance your appearance with this quick, safe, and powerful treatment option.
This injectable filler treatment uses hyaluronic acid, a material that your body naturally produces, to provide safe and stunning results.
What to Expect
Juvederm VOLUMA® XC treatment is conducted in the same manner as other dermal fillers. The difference with this product is that injections are performed a little deeper in the skin. If not applied at the proper depth, the product will be seen on the surface in the form of dark spots. Our skilled team knows exactly where and how to administer it for the desired result: lifted, finely sculpted cheeks.
The use of a fine needle creates a comfortable treatment process. The product, as well, contains a numbing agent that makes treatment more comfortable as it goes on. Patients may also speak with us about the topical application of ice or numbing cream to improve their experience.
In a session that lasts just 10 to 15 minutes, we can reduce the appearance of age by several years! Results of treatment with Juvederm VOLUMA® XC can last up to 18 months.
Juvederm VOLUMA® XC is a popular treatment that gives patients the youthful look they seek. By filling in the cheeks and tightening the skin, Juvederm VOLUMA® XC can give you the look of a facelift without the need for surgery and downtime. And your treatment won’t even last longer than lunch.
Juvederm VOLUMA® XC can also be used to fill wrinkles, fine lines, and other areas that have lost volume due to aging or weight loss.
The beautiful results of Juvederm can last from four to six months in most patients. However, some patients can see significantly longer results. It depends on your level of activity and individual skin makeup.
When considering Juvederm or any cosmetic treatments, be sure to find a trusted, experienced doctor. Dr. Milan Lombardi is a board-certified dermatologist who is consistently rated as one of the best dermatologists in Tampa.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Juvederm?
Injectable fillers like Juvederm are accessible for patients of all ages. For some patients, they may want to combat the effects of aging before they even appear. For this reason, many younger patients have turned to dermal fillers to preserve their youthful appearance as they age.
Below are some signs that Juvederm could benefit you:
- You have a noticeable loss of cheek definition
- Wrinkles have appeared around the edges of your mouth (marionette lines)
- You want to improve the appearance of your facial bone structure
For patients who wish to address more severe facial drooping, a surgical option may provide the results you are looking for. During your consultation with Dr. Lombardi, he will go over what treatment options will give you the best results.
