As we age, we begin to lose the volume and elasticity in our cheeks. This can leave us with a gaunt and tired appearance. Luckily, Juvederm Voluma® is an option available to those in the Summerville and Mount Pleasant area who are looking for a boost.
What is Juvederm Voluma®?
It’s right in the name! Juvederm Voluma® is a dermal filler specifically designed to restore volume to cheeks that have begun to sag or appear sunken due to aging or significant weight loss. Using hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the body, Juvederm Voluma® plumps out your cheeks and smoothes out your complexion for a fresh and younger-looking face.
What is hyaluronic acid?
As mentioned above, HA is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, boosting production of collagen and elastin to keep us looking plump and aglow. As we age, the amount of HA we produce begins to drop off, leading to more pronounced wrinkles, loss of volume, and a duller appearance overall. Juvederm Voluma® puts some of that HA back into your skin and revives some of that natural luster.
What can I expect?
Juvederm Voluma® is injected into the skin with a fine-gauge needle so it can retain its natural elasticity. Most sessions take between 15 and 30 minutes, though appointments can take up to an hour if combined with other treatments. There is no downtime after the procedure, and most people return to their normal routines directly afterward. Patients may experience some slight redness or swelling around the injection site, but it usually resolves itself within a day.
What does it cost?
The cost of Juvederm Voluma® can vary depending on each patient’s treatment plan. During the consultation with Dr. Widenhouse in Charleston, he will explain the various payment and financing options available to patients at Port City Plastic Surgery.
