What Is Juvederm Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma is an injectable gel that helps restore lost volume around your cheeks immediately after treatment. Treatment is for patients age 21 and older. It is best known for boosting volume and providing contour and lift for up to two years with the right treatment.
At Southeastern Dermatology, Dr. Andrew A. Hendricks and our friendly and professional team consult with patients one-on-one to determine what their aesthetic goals and objectives are. We then can recommend the anti-aging treatment that’s best for you.
Juvederm treatments have long been proven effective and safe and are approved by federal food and drug officials.
Studies indicate that three out of four, or 75 percent, of patients who received Juvederm treatment reported they looked more youthful afterward. The majority of respondents said they believe Juvederm made them appear five years younger than their actual age.
And Juvederm results last. Studies found that two years post-treatment, more than 50 percent of patients reported they appeared more youthful than they did before Juvederm treatment.
How Many Juvederm Treatments Are Needed?
Because each patient is different and each has different aesthetic goals, the number of Juvederm treatments required can vary from patient to patient.
That’s why Dr. Hendricks takes the time to meet with patients to discuss their goals – and to offer realistic information on what they can expect to achieve through treatment.
Does Treatment Hurt?
Many people feel a stinging or pricking sensation during treatment, but most of our Southeastern Dermatology patients report that Juvederm treatment is just about pain-free. We can provide topical anesthetics if you are sensitive to pain. We’ll work to ensure your treatment is comfortable and pain-free.
Juvederm treatments come with no downtime and our patients can return to normal daily activity right away. We do strongly suggest that patients avoid heavy exercise, alcoholic drinks and sun exposure for one day following their Juvederm treatments.
Some patients may have some redness, tenderness or swelling in the treatment area. This is not unexpected and these minor side effects typically disappear within days.
Will I Look “Worked On” After Treatment?
No. That’s a major benefit of Juvederm products. You will achieve a more youthful look, but friends and family members likely won’t know you received any anti-aging treatment.
Doctor Hendricks and our team will review your medical history and provide you with customized pre-treatment instructions before Juvederm treatments begin.
If you want to take years off of your look, but don’t want cosmetic surgery, Juvederm Voluma treatments may be for you. Contact Southeastern Dermatology today to begin down the road to a more revitalized look.
