Do you have sunken in cheeks and unsightly wrinkles in the mid-face region that make you look much older than you are? This problem can be caused by a variety of different factors, including the natural aging process, genetics, and poor lifestyle habits. Most individuals who suffer from this issue often feel insecure about their appearance and experience a significant drop in confidence.
To rejuvenate their look and boost their self-confidence, most individuals look for solutions that are safe, pocket friendly, and long lasting. With several options available in the market to add volume beneath the skin, it has become easier to restore their youthful cheeks.
Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based cosmetic filler. HA is a chemical that occurs naturally in the skin, but degrades as you get older. Juvederm Voluma makes use of this chemical to provide your skin with cosmetic improvements that last for a long time.
The filler is also imbued with lidocaine, a local anesthetic that helps to eliminate any discomfort you’ll feel from the injection. Juvederm Voluma is injected into the dermis to add volume to the cheeks. The age old method of surgery to define the cheekbones is replaced with volumizing fillers.
Precautionary Measures to Take Before the Treatment
It is suggested to talk to a general physician before taking any treatment, so you should schedule a consultation with a cosmetic medical professional who has experience performing the Juvederm treatment.
