In this era where beauty is everything, and decides your status in the social standing, it is quite common for men and women to opt for cosmetic procedures.
And to provide more medically-safe results, dermatologists and beauticians have come together to produce the Voluma Filler, which is one of the most used derma fillers as of now.
The Juvederm Voluma filler is typically a variety of facial fillers that come filled with hyaluronic acid for instant facial uplifting. This all-natural composition is specifically targeted for the mid-face and is known for its long-lasting results.
What does ‘Juvederm’ stand for?
A specific brand that deals with artificially modified fillers, the Juvederm Voluma is one of the many products of the company. Unlike other varieties of the filler brand, including the Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC and Voluma XC, the voluma filler works its way by making aesthetic changes to the mid-face, including cheeks, lips, folds and wrinkles on the face.
How does the Voluma Filler work?
Consisting of the naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, this is a non-surgical procedure of getting rid of ageing signs and symptoms and hence maintaining a young, glowing face for long periods. The fluid goes deep down into the fatty cheek layers working its way out from the very core.
When injected into specific spots, the acid binds to water molecules inside the body, allowing the dermal layers to stay hydrated. This hydration is further protected by a layer that keeps the molecules from evaporating, thereby maintaining a smooth finish and the natural buoyancy of the skin. So, the working principle behind the filler is quite simple. It just restores one’s natural levels of the hyaluronic acid within the body, which gradually decreases as we age.
Moreover, it also prevents sagging of your cheeks or appearance of contour lines without having to go under the knife, which is yet another added benefit of the procedure.
What happens after the filler is used?
After a successful session with your provider, the filler components will take anywhere between a few days to a maximum of two weeks to settle down. Once they are fully settled, the droplets will start almost instantly binding with moisture, creating visible difference between your before and after appearance.
Wrinkles and ageing lines will be seamlessly smoothened out, cheeks will grow back to their plumpy self, with the cheek angles and curves seeming younger and more defined. Thus, in short your face will look more healthy, younger and appealing if you opt for these Juvederm Voluma fillers.
Where is the Voluma Filler used?
Predominantly designed for the mid-face region, Voluma filler acts best for:
- Sagging cheeks
- Contour lines
- Unwanted wrinkles
- Lip and frown lines
- Worry lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet, etc.
The filler has comparably higher amounts of the HA (Hyaluronic acid) as compared to its other variations from the same brand, and hence is better suited for facial areas with more mass than others. For other areas, it is best to consult with your dermatologist for a lower concentrated formula.
What are the benefits of opting for this filler?
FDA approved for safety and efficacy
Unlike other sus dermal fillers, the Juvederm Voluma enjoys FDA approval and certification as a highly effective HA filler. IN 2013, the Juvederm Voluma XC was awarded as the first approved filler that was linked with safe and longer results in correcting age-related aesthetic issues.
Although many suppose using fillers may make their face appear artificial or heavily modified, HA fillers like this one offer completely natural results. This is mostly because they only ramp up the HA content under the facial muscles, providing a natural uplift to the cheeks.
A single Voluma session is claimed to last 12-24 months which is undoubtedly by-far the longest any filler can ever provide for. This makes it a pretty convenient and budget-friendly option, and moreover, one doesn’t need to pay for frequent touch-ups again and again. This makes it a highly preferable option all over the world.
When done with a licensed and qualified personnel, the dermal filler doesn’t hurt at all. This is because skilled providers often administer a dose of local anaesthetic, mostly lidocaine before starting with the procedure. The anaesthetic then works by numbing down your facial muscles and your sensation to pain, making the process seamless, comfortable and absolutely pain-free. What’s more??? Using the dermal filler has no downtime at all, and hence individuals can resume their day-to-day activities without any issues.
Usually the facial uplifting sessions with Voluma takes only about 15-20 minutes, including the numbing part. So, you don’t have to spend much time staring into medical equipment and filler injections, in case you are afraid of such things. However, some sessions may go longer depending upon the area to be covered and ageing symptoms. Similarly, board-certified dermatologists and beauticians take much less time than other inexperienced ones and are also comparatively safer.
Finally, designed with the special Vycross technology, the filler molecules in this filler are much more stabilised than any other variations. The proprietary corr-slinking technology makes the molecules thicker, thereby reducing their breakage into simpler compounds by our body’s natural system by several folds. As a result, the HA molecules stay for much longer periods of time, offering a young-looking face to the user.
Are there any side effects to the procedure?
Like stated earlier, this procedure works by biologically enhancing HA molecules in the facial areas and hence there are no such major side-effects. However, a normal bruising, swelling or redness may occur from person to person that stays only for a couple of days and isn’t much visible. To top it up, you can also apply makeup on these minor side-effects to have that complete beautiful look until the filler starts its work.
But, in case you have gone to an under qualified doctor or beautician for the same, there is a high probability of severe consequences. Although this whole ordeal might seem easy, there is a certain way of doing it and hence if they don’t know what they are doing, you will be the one to suffer the side-effects at a later stage.
Similarly, it is also better to avoid alcohol consumption, blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or painkillers, massage, unprotected and exposure to excessive temperature changes, etc. Other things to prevent at least for two days from the treatment include visiting the sauna, sun bathing, and making a trip to a tanning salon.
Who is eligible for the procedure?
As the facial fillers are created to help get rid of ageing symptoms anyone above 21 years of age is permissible to opt for this treatment type. Although, teenagers below 25 years don’t normally need ‘non-surgical facial uplifting procedures’, it is rather a personal choice and also depends upon your personal dermatologist or beautician’s consultation.
But, if you are pregnant, or a lactating mother, have severe allergies to lidocaine or the Hyaluronic acid, then the Voluma filler isn’t for you. The same also goes for those who are on blood-thinning medications, suffer from heart diseases, immunological disorders, diabetes or had a recent heart surgery, organ transplantation, etc.
Even though the filler is FDA-approved for its safety, it’s not worth taking risks when it comes to your safety. Therefore before signing up for the injective procedure thoroughly consulting with your doctor is a must.
