What Can I Expect After My Juvéderm Treatment?
Juvéderm Voluma XC isn’t the only filler that can be used for restoring volume to your cheeks, but it may be the best, here’s why:
- Gives instant results
- Gives predictable, consistent results
- Lifts more than other injectable fillers
- Is a smooth injectable
- Results in less discomfort than other fillers
- Is completely reversible
- Soft, natural feeling
- Is very long-lasting–lasts 2 years or more!
Before contouring the cheeks was a major problem for injectable fillers. Fillers like Juvéderm worked great for lip augmentation and for filling wrinkles, but they just didn’t have the strength to provide the necessary lift and support. They also didn’t last long in the application.
Then composite fillers, made of hard microspheres and a soft carrier gel, were developed. These fillers could provide the necessary lift, but their irregular texture could lead to unnatural looking results. Even when injected deeply, the irregular texture could feel unnatural, even painful.
Another solution tried was injections of Poly-L-lactic acid, a variation on the substance that makes your muscles ache when you work out too much. These injections irritated tissues in your cheek, causing them to produce more collagen. This treatment works, but it takes time to show results, and the results aren’t always predictable. Some people develop hard nodules related to these injections, and others have reported long-lasting pain.
Juvéderm Voluma XC also has the benefit of being completely reversible. With other injections, if you don’t like them, you have to live with them, sometimes for a long time. But with results can be immediately reversed with hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid.
