Have you started to notice signs of early aging on your face, especially lines, wrinkles and volume loss in your cheeks? This is not uncommon, as the face is one of the first places to begin to show your age – especially the mid-face and cheek area. In order to combat these early signs of aging, Dr. Julio Garcia is proud to offer Juvederm Voluma.
Juvederm Voluma is a smooth gel filler made of hyaluronic acid—which is a substance that is naturally found within your skin and other parts of the body. This acid works by filling in the areas that are prone to lost volume. Filling the skin causes the skin’s surface to plump and eliminates the appearance of wrinkles. Juvederm Voluma is unique from other dermal fillers in its ability to replace volume in the cheeks.
Juvederm Voluma is approved by the FDA and is popular among Dr. Garcia’s patients due to the long-lasting results it offers. In fact, many patients have reported visible results for up to 18 months following their initial treatment. While Juvederm Voluma is not a permanent solution, the long lasting results make it a great alternative to surgical correction.
Since hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, most patients do not have a negative reaction to Juvederm Voluma. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin prior to receiving injections in order relieve any discomfort or pain that may be associated with treatment. You may see slight swelling at the injection site, but this should subside within a day or two following treatment.
