Are you feeling concerned about the way aging is changing your face? If you’re looking for a solution, then we have the perfect one at Ingrid E. Trenkle, MD in Redlands, CA. Our Juvederm Voluma treatments will help you look younger and feel more confident in your appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Juvederm Voluma?
Fill in Your Cheeks
The older you get, the more you’re going to lose volume in all parts of your face. This loss is going to be particularly evident in the cheek area, as your cheeks are naturally one of the fullest parts of your face.
Voluma is the perfect way to fill in this lost volume. By doing so, your cheeks are going to look fuller, and your cheekbones will appear more defined. You’ll get back the round cheeks from your youth that you’ve been missing.
Define Your Jawline
As your cheeks lose volume and your skin gains more laxity, you may notice the skin around your jawline starting to sag. This can result in concerns like jowls forming, which are going to have a dramatic effect on the way you look.
If you get injections of this Juvederm formula in your cheeks, this will help them look fuller while also lifting your sagging skin. You’ll effectively get rid of your jowls and also make your jawline appear more defined.
Get Rid of Nasolabial Folds
Your nasolabial folds are the lines that appear between your nose and mouth when you smile. You may have also heard the terms laugh lines or smile lines. The more you lose elasticity and volume in your skin, the more defined these lines will become as they become permanent parts of your face.
These lines are going to have a major effect on the way you look. If it’s not a change that you appreciate, this injectable can help. It will fill in the missing volume under your skin, smoothing out these lines and giving you a much more youthful appearance.
Safe For Almost Anyone
Another major benefit of this treatment is that almost anybody can be a candidate. The main ingredient in all Juvederm formulas is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring sugar you can find in places like your skin, muscles, and eyes.
Because it uses hyaluronic acid, it’s safe for almost anyone to get. As long as you don’t have skin conditions, like eczema, or sunburn around the areas you want to target, and you are not pregnant or breastfeeding, you could be a perfect candidate to receive this treatment.
Stimulates Collagen Production
You’ve probably heard the word collagen before, especially if you have even a slight interest in cosmetics. But what exactly is it? Collagen is a protein found in various places in your body, including your skin. It’s responsible for keeping your skin elastic so it can smooth out when the muscles beneath are relaxed.
But the older you get, the less collagen is present in your skin which is in large part why wrinkles begin to form. If you get injections of this dermal filler, one of the things that the hyaluronic acid will do is encourage your skin to produce more collagen. This keeps your skin elastic and prevents more wrinkles from forming.
Get Fast Results
If you’re feeling self-conscious about the way you look because of aging concerns like wrinkling and sagging, it makes sense to want to find a treatment that’s going to work as quickly as possible. Some treatment options, unfortunately, can take a long time to show you the results you want.
But when you get Juvederm filler injections, you won’t need to worry about waiting. As soon as the product is injected into your areas of concern, you’ll notice an immediate change in your appearance as the hyaluronic acid fills in the area. Over the next week or two, your appearance will continue to change as the full results become apparent.
Keep Your Results for a Long Time
Some people are looking for only short-term results for their treatments, especially if they aren’t sure they’re going to like the way they look afterward. But if you want something that’s going to last, this treatment is perfect for you.
Most people find that their results last anywhere from 1 to 2 years, depending on how your skin reacts. You can help your results last as long as possible by taking good care of your skin, eating right, and leading an overall healthy lifestyle.
Reverse Your Results Easily
Most people are happy with the results they get from their Voluma treatments. But in some cases, people find that they don’t like the way these changes make them look and want to get back to their old appearance.
Don’t worry if this happens to you. We can easily reverse the effects of your treatment by injecting an enzyme called hyaluronidase into your treated areas. This safely dissolves the hyaluronic acid.
Results Are Easy to Customize
Not everyone is looking for the same thing from their treatment. Some people want to see a dramatic change in how they look, while others prefer to see only minor contouring or added definition.
What’s great about this filler is that it’s easy to customize, so you can get exactly what you want from your treatment. When you visit our clinic, we’ll discuss your goals and ensure that your treatment helps you look exactly the way you want to.
Easy to Prepare
You won’t need to worry about extensive preparations if you’re planning on getting this treatment. We’ll provide you with the instructions you need to ensure that your treatment is as effective as it can be.
During the days leading up to your appointment, we’ll simply ask you to avoid certain substances like alcohol and over-the-counter medications like aspirin. That’s because these substances can thin your blood, which could cause bruising around the injection sites. Other than this, there is nothing you’ll need to do to prepare for your appointment.
Treatment Is Simple
When the day of your appointment comes, you can count on the treatment process being fast and easy. We’ll welcome you into our clinic and address any questions or concerns you may have, so don’t be afraid to bring them up.
Before we start injecting the product, we’ll clean the areas where you’ll be getting treatment. This prevents bacteria from entering the injection sites. We’ll then apply small amounts of the product at a time to ensure our accuracy. Voluma injections contain lidocaine, a painkiller, so you won’t feel any pain throughout the treatment. You’ll only feel a slight pinch. As soon as your treatment is done, you can leave the clinic.
No Downtime Necessary
With certain cosmetic treatments, especially surgeries, you’ll be required to take some downtime after the treatment. This isn’t a convenient thing, and the recovery process itself can be uncomfortable and even painful.
But that’s not the case with this injectable. Because it’s non-invasive, there’s no downtime necessary after your treatment is done. You’ll just have to remember to stay out of direct sunlight as well as avoid strenuous physical activity or anything else that could cause a lot of sweating. We’ll make sure you get full instructions so your skin can heal properly.
Great Alternative to Surgery
Surgical procedures like facelifts can be great ways to permanently look younger and get a more defined-looking face. But surgeries come with an inherent number of risks.
Because this injectable is so effective and long-lasting, it’s a great alternative to surgery making it the perfect option for candidates who don’t want anything invasive.
Great Alternative to Neuromodulators
Injectable cosmetic treatments like Botox and Jeuveau can also offer an effective change in your appearance. But these products aren’t right for everyone. If you’re looking for an alternative, Voluma is a great one to consider.
If you’ve been sensitive to products like Botox in the past, this filler is a good one to consider instead. You can also use it in combination with Botox which will help the muscles beneath your skin relax while filling in the area for even more dramatic results.
