There’s so much more to aging than the development of fine lines and wrinkles; while our skin does lose elasticity (which then leads to the development of deep folds), it also loses previous fullness from the loss of skin volume and diminishing fat pads. Once that volume is lost, the skin looks much thinner, and our features look so much more gaunt and hollowed-out. If you’re looking for a way to combat hollowed-out features without succumbing to a painful recovery from a surgical procedure, Juvederm Voluma is the treatment for you. Juvederm Voluma is a smooth gel dermal filler that, once injected into the face, restores volume and fullness in large areas like the cheeks. With Juvederm Voluma, patients can enjoy fuller, sharper features as well as more youthful look.
With this non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment, Dr. Petroff can achieve an effect similar to cheek augmentation with implants. Thanks to Voluma’s advanced, durable formula, patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance for up to two years. And because Voluma is made of substances that are naturally found in the body, it’s gradually and safely absorbed by the body after some time.
All About Juvederm Voluma
Aging happens in multiple fronts; not only does our skin lose elasticity and firmness, we also experience a decrease in facial fat. The loss of facial volume and elasticity eventually culminates in a thinner, gaunter look. Our cheeks start to look hollow, our faces more narrow and less vibrant than before. With Voluma, patients can specifically target areas that have lost substantial volume without the use implants or any kind of surgical procedure.
Juvederm Voluma is formulated using VYCROSS technology, a new manufacturing process that creates a soft gel is composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid particles. Thanks to VYCROSS technology, Voluma’s gel is made of hyaluronic acid particles of different molecular weights. The VYCROSS process gives the gel an incredibly sturdy quality; it’s strong enough to endure years of facial movements while soft enough to ensure the face still looks natural.
Why the Petroff Center
As crucial it is to choose an advanced, state of the art filler like Juvederm Voluma, the best way to ensure natural results is by choosing an experienced, expert injector. At the Petroff Center, your Voluma treatment will be performed by renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Petroff himself—not a random injector. When your Voluma treatment is performed by someone with a mastery of facial anatomy, you have a better chance of looking firm, but not overly full, or looking contoured without looking too artificial. A skilled injector is also more likely to give you a comfortable treatment, natural results, and rejuvenation that lasts longer than the typical treatment. We’re in an age that celebrates contoured, sharp features—so make sure your rejuvenation looks as balanced and proportional as possible.
Recovery from Juvederm Voluma
Because Voluma is a nonsurgical injectable, patients who undergo it don’t need to have any downtime or recovery period. Patients will experience some redness, swelling, and soreness in the treatment areas for some time after the treatment. These side effects will be temporary and should dissipate after a week or two. To help with swelling, patients can apply ice packs to the treatment area.
