One of the top skin concerns across the board is lines and wrinkles caused by aging. When you’re looking for ways to regain a youthful appearance, one of the best cosmetic treatments you’ll find is the Voluma filler, which is part of the Juvederm line.
This facial filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to bind water to cells. Because cross-links help to provide an excellent lifting capacity, hyaluronic acid is an excellent choice for restoring volume in the cheeks and midface.
The board-certified dermatologists at Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery are proud to offer Juvederm Voluma to give you the appearance you desire while still looking natural.
Results are immediate. There may be some slight bruising and swelling, but that will subside after a few days. Most patients can get back to their day right after injection.
The filler can last up to two years. Depending on the facial area treated, the patient’s ability to break down the substance, and the injection technique, will determine how long the filler lasts. Most patients see at least 18 months of results. Older patients may require more filler. If you find yourself in this situation, your dermatologist may also recommend pairing Juvederm Voluma with Botox and laser resurfacing, for optimal results. Luckily, Voluma can be paired with other treatments safely and effectively. It's ideal for many areas of the face, such as the cheek but typically not recommended for the lips.
