While people often associate injectables with crow’s feet and lip enhancement, cheek contouring is becoming increasingly popular. A wonderful new FDA-approved injectable solution called Voluma (from Juvederm) is a highly recommended and simple way to achieve beautiful, pronounced cheekbones for both women and men.*
Contouring your face with makeup can be helpful in creating the illusion of defined cheekbones, but that only goes so far, as the mid-face is often the first part of our faces that age. Full cheeks are often seen as very appealing and are one of the reasons that the boosting of hollow cheeks is gaining popularity.*
Moreover, increasing hollowness of the cheeks is also a visible sign of aging. Because of this, many people are inclined to come in for Juvederm Voluma injections. Read more here: https://www.juvederm.com/volume-loss
The Link Between Loss of Cheek Volume and Aging
The primary link between aging and a loss of cheek volume comes with understanding the fact that the cheeks house a lot of fatty cells. These cells disappear over time. The key to maintaining a youthful appearance has a lot to do with restoring the volume of the cheeks.
Juvederm Voluma is a very smooth gel that is primarily made up of dense cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural material that offers structure to the tissues and is normally found in the human body. Adding this substance to the cheeks restores the structure that has been lost.*
The Juvederm Voluma Injection Procedure
The process of restoring the lost volume with Juvederm Voluma is performed with a series of injections. The duration of the injection procedure can be quite short. The substance is usually applied to the top of the bone. When administered properly, the amount that needs to be injected isn’t usually much at all.*
After the Procedure
Voluma tends to provide an almost immediate boost with very impressive results. The change in your appearance will be noticeable and impressive, but most people are not able to pinpoint the exact reason for the enhancement.* The results of Voluma injections are evident for a considerable period of time. Results have been known to last for up to two full years after the date of treatment, longer than most other dermal fillers. Touch-ups, if needed, may be available.*
Your injection treatment will not require much downtime, if any; most people return to their usual routine the following day without issues. This is in stark contrast to surgical procedures, which often require the patient to stay home and rest for weeks on end.*
After the procedure, a degree of temporary bruising and tenderness around the area may occur. This is due in part to the fact that these injections go down deeper than most other cosmetic filler injections to provide deeper rejuvenation.*
