What To Expect Before and After Juvéderm Voluma Treatment
Dermal fillers are a popular treatment used to fight the signs of aging on the face. They can help enhance contours and replace volume that is naturally lost over time. They are so common they’ve started to become known as “liquid facelifts” for their ability to take years off an appearance without having to go “under the knife.”
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm Voluma can help reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles on the face with no anesthesia, no downtime, and no painful recovery. Voluma is the first filler FDA approved for mid face volume restoration. This allows for very precise contouring and lifting of this crucial area to recreate the triangle of youth – a full upper face and a more tapered lower face. Many times, areas that may appear to be a problem, such as sunken eyes or heavy smile lines, significantly improve with midface lifting even though no filler is injected into these areas. It’s all a matter of understanding facial aesthetics and movement, and our providers are specialty trained in this important skill. They look at the “gestalt” or whole picture and do their artistic work accordingly.
Before your procedure, we recommend avoiding medications which thin the blood such as ibuprofen, and supplements like Ginseng, Ginger, Garlic, or Fish Oil. This can help minimize bruising around the injection sites. We also suggest that our patients avoid high intensity exercise or activity right before the appointment.
Voluma treatments are quick and painless. Our providers are trained to administer the injections in a slow and smooth manner to allow for maximum comfort and minimal bruising. Injections are quick and results can be seen immediately
Patients who receive Voluma treatments are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. Side effects are generally mild and may include some swelling or bruising. This usually fades after a week or two but can be covered using makeup. Patients who do use makeup should be careful not to put any pressure on the injection sites. Juvéderm Voluma is a dermal filler that holds its shape exceptionally well for up to two years, but it is still best to avoid pushing on the filler for several days after treatment to allow the product time to set.
