Juvederm Voluma in Austin, TX
Doctors Edward Buckingham and Erin Smith offer Voluma solutions for patients in Austin & Sunset Valley, TX. A youthful face is composed of many characteristics, all of which work together to give you the young luminous appearance that draws others to you. An attractive face free of sun damage, wrinkles, and sagging skin is something many of us strive for, but unfortunately Mother Nature often has other plans. Now physicians have another anti-aging solution available to them in the form of a new injectable filler. Juvederm Voluma XC is Allergan’s latest injectable product. Juvederm Voluma has been FDA approved to restore volume loss in the cheeks and promises long lasting-results when used correctly with advanced injection techniques.
Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler, much like Juvederm and Restylane, but rather than smoothing out wrinkles it subtly lifts the cheeks and restores the contours of the face, reversing volume loss that occurs as a result of age. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body in the soft connective tissue and skin. The substance is a popular component of facial fillers due to its ability to retain water and help build collagen, a protein necessary to retain healthy skin structure and prevent laxity. Over time collagen production diminishes and the cheeks may become hollow, adding to an older appearance. With Juvederm Voluma the hyaluronic acid has been cross-linked to deliver natural-looking fullness and return essential moisture to the cheeks.
The more youthful profile may last up to 2 years under optimal treatment circumstances, making it a very desirable procedure. The procedure is quick, taking an average of 15 minutes. No downtime is required following treatment and patients may return to all normal activities soon after. Some patients may experience some moderate side effects, such as tenderness, swelling, redness, or bruising. These common side effects are temporary and generally last no longer than 1 to 2 weeks.
To learn more about Juvederm Voluma and the benefits that injectable fillers have to offer, prospective patients should call Dr. Buckingham’s office to schedule a consultation. Consultations involve a comprehensive analysis of the face to determine which procedures are suitable for a particular patient’s needs. Dr. Buckingham will gladly answer any and all questions you may have concerning volume loss in the cheeks or Juvederm Voluma.
