While your patients are worrying about their fine lines and wrinkles, they may be missing an extremely obvious signs of aging: midface volume loss. Characterized by the natural reduction of fat in the cheek area, this cosmetic issue may cause the skin to sag, adding years to even the most youthful-looking face. With Juvederm injections, however, the cheeks can be plumped and sculpted, revitalizing and rejuvenating the face—and shaving years off of it.
Midface volume loss is caused by both the atrophy of fat compartments in the face and the age-related decline of the body’s hyaluronic acid content. When this vital substance is lost, the skin becomes weakened, sallow, and dehydrated.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within the tissues and joints of the body. Because has an innate ability to retain water molecules at the cellular level, it works to hydrate and volumize cells, keeping the skin plump and moisturized. However, the aging process diminishes the body’s natural hyaluronic acid content. As a result, the skin loses its volume and structure, leaving areas like the cheeks looking hollowed and gaunt.
By replenishing hyaluronic acid levels in the skin, Juvederm gives back the plumpness and elasticity that disappear during midface volume loss. For this type of revitalization, Juvederm’s Voluma XC formulation is injected deep into the cheek area to lift and contour the face. This unique formula has been strengthened with Hyalacross Technology, rendering its hyaluronic acid more stable and long-lasting in this highly mobile area of the face.
Generally, Juvederm Voluma XC lasts up to 2 years in the cheek area, with an average of 6.8ml of solution needed to correct facial hollows. Moreover, in clinical studies, patients reported looking up to 5 years younger at just 6 months after treatment.
Juvederm is absolutely safe when used properly by health-care providers. To ensure further safety, each patient’s medical record should be reviewed prior to treatment for any contraindications, including medications, conflicting therapies, or existing health conditions. Juvederm should never be administered to patients who are underage, pregnant, or breastfeeding, as the effects of hyaluronic fillers have not been tested on these populations.
Please note that minor irritation, including swelling and bruising around the injection site, may occur post-injection. Nodules, firmness, and discoloration have also been reported, although these side effects are less common. Any adverse or serious side effects should receive immediate medical attention.
With its incredible plumping powers, Juvederm Voluma XC offers your aging patients access to the fountain of youth. Its hyaluronic acid content allows you to safely reconstruct their lost volume—without the need for frequent or invasive treatment.
