One of the earliest signs of aging is volume loss in the face. It can also cause your cheeks to hollow and your skin to sag increasingly over time. To correct this age-related volume loss, Dr. Kestin in New York City offers Juvéderm Voluma XC for exceptional improvements in the midface region. This treatment can restore the volume in your cheeks, providing a more vibrant appearance.
Voluma is a smooth hyaluronic acid gel that is a naturally occurring sugar, meant to deliver nutrients to the skin, promoting naturally soft, supple skin. Once injected into the cheek area, Voluma temporarily reverses the signs of aging by adding volume to the cheeks and subtly lifting the skin. The treatment results in a smoother facial contour and a more refreshed, youthful appearance. Voluma also contains lidocaine, or a local anesthetic to increase comfort during your injection treatment. After the first injection, Dr. Kestin will wait to allow the lidocaine to numb the surrounding area. After the injections, Dr. Kestin may massage the treatment area to assure the formula distributes evenly. Results can last up to two years with Voluma, and touch-up treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results. Ultimately, you’ll be left with a younger, more spirited appearance.
What are the Risks?
The most common side effects of Voluma include swelling, firmness, tenderness and lumps at the injection site. These last about two weeks and generally heal on their own. Dr. Kestin will inform you about all of the adverse effects of Voluma during your initial consultation at his Manhattan practice. However, any other side effects are mostly rare. Although wrinkles and lines are a huge concern as you age, don’t forget about your full cheeks that contribute to your youthful appearance as well.
