The field of aesthetic dermatology has been revolutionized with the introduction of a wide range of anti-aging facial fillers to reduce wrinkles and lines from the face. Some patients may also suffer loss of facial volume due to aging, sun exposure and other factors, which can result in a sunken appearance of the cheeks. Juvederm Voluma is the only injectable dermal filler that has been approved by the FDA specifically for the purpose of volumizing the cheeks.
Women and men above the age of 21 seeking cosmetic skin care to restore volume and lift sagging facial skin may consider Juvederm Voluma as an ideal non-surgical solution. The treatment will help build facia contour and provide a subtle lift to the cheeks. Unlike most other cosmetic fillers that may last for only about six to 12 months, the results with Juvederm Voluma can last for as long as two years. Leading dermatologist Dr. Steven Zimmet provides this treatment to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding areas.
Patients should be aware that standard anti-aging dermatology fillers can reduce moderate to severe wrinkles and lines on the face, but they are not designed to lift the cheeks. Juvederm Voluma is the specific filler for this purpose. The filler gel includes lidocaine, which means that the procedure will not involve separate application of a local anesthetic.
The filler injection in precise quantity is directly delivered to the targeted areas of depleted volume. The filler gel provides almost instant support to the cheeks, and helps build a youthful curve and natural looking cheek contours over a few days. The filler is based on hyaluronic acid, which is biocompatible and requires no advanced allergy tests.
Hyaluronic acid helps to tighten the skin from inside out, and adds fullness to the treated areas around the cheeks. The patient will notice rounder and fuller cheeks and a more youthful looking facial profile within a short time after the treatment. As an experienced dermatologist, Dr. Zimmet receives patients from Austin, TX and other areas for Juvederm Voluma.
Proven Results with Juvederm Voluma
The FDA approved Juvederm Voluma specifically for its ability to “temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area of adults over the age of 21.” The manufacturers showed the positive results with Juvederm Voluma in an extensive study in North America involving 235 participants, while led to its approval from the FDA.
At present, the treatment has received approval in 72 countries, and the patient feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable with regard to Juvederm Voluma’s ability to restore cheek volume. Patients as well as treatment providers across the world prefer this treatment for its effectiveness as well as sustainability of results for a longer period as compared to other fillers.
Patients should also be aware that most of the hyaluronic based facial fillers have been approved by the FDA specifically for the purpose of reducing wrinkles and folds in the nasolabial area. Their usage in other areas of the face is off-label. With Juvederm Voluma, patients have a choice to receive FDA approved treatment to re-volumize the cheeks.
