Juvederm Voluma Offers a Solution for Gaunt Cheeks

Published on May 18, 2020

Gaunt Cheeks

A typical sign of aging is lost volume in the cheek region of your face. Cheeks appear hollow or gaunt, especially if you are thin. Within the skin of your cheeks, housed deep inside, is a particular area containing fat. With the process of aging, this fat disappears gradually. You lose volume in your cheeks. Bringing back the lost volume produces an appearance that is supple, smooth, and reminds one of youth. The cheeks gain a plumpness. You can get a look of higher cheekbones as well. Along with the look of the cheeks improving, the area under the eyes also benefits from treatment (as it is almost adjoining the cheek region). Similarly, lines of aging around the nose region disappear. In fact, even the lips tend to look poutier than before. It’s really extraordinary how your cheeks play a central role in defining the youth of your face.

Juvederm Voluma

Getting back the volume that you have lost in your cheeks isn’t all that difficult. An efficient and highly reliable filler called the “Juvederm Voluma” filler can do the job effortlessly. This is a filler that is injected into the area to be treated – the composition of the injection is an acid called “hyaluronic acid”. A definite plus point is that there is no surgery involved. A great deal of research has proved that the gaining of volume on the face can have life-changing effects on anyone’s appearance. What you get is an instant shot at looking great with highly noteworthy results. Research has also exhibited that a doctor with a good deal of experience should undertake the procedure for obtaining results that are optimal. Before being injected, a cream is applied to the area to make it numb, so you don’t feel an iota of pain, and you remain comfortable throughout the sitting. A small quantity of the voluma filler is required if the injections are filled correctly, so a doctor with some expertise in the field is key to getting this right. This treatment can be undertaken by people with any skin type.

Results

After the treatment is completed, as with any cosmetology correction, patients are often apprehensive about how it will all turn out. There’s absolutely no need to fear with the Juvederm Voluma filler treatment as results, though visibly different, are not over the top. Others will immediately see how super you look, but won’t quite be able to pin-point exactly how. The subtle differences will bring looks of great admiration. The recovery time is very brief – a lot of people have reported going back to their daily activities within a day or two. There may be pain, tenderness, and swelling at the site of the injection, but these things are short-lived. The look you get can last up to two years or so. This procedure has been given the official go-ahead by government health authorities in the United States of America – it is one of the most reliable filler treatments available today.
