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 atrophy. Decreased production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid also affects the appearance of skin.
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.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the only drug to hold FDA-approval for the sole purpose of restoring healthy, youthful contours to the cheeks. As we age, several factors cause a shift in contouring. Features such as the cheeks and jaw line flatten out, and may even look somewhat droopy. In a short treatment session, patients of Tampa dermatologist Dr. Lombardi can regain the plump, defined cheeks that add youthfulness to the face.
What to Expect
JUVÉDERM 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 JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can last up to 18 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a popular treatment that gives patients the youthful look they seek. By filling in the cheeks and tightening the skin, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can give you the look of a face lift without the need for surgery and downtime.
JUVÉDERM 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.
