Why are so many people asking about the Voluma filler in Westlake Village?
Through years of scientific research, drug companies have been able to isolate and maximize the power of numerous vital ingredients. These chemicals; such as hyaluronic acid and calcium, are produced in the body naturally. As we age, however, the amounts present in the skin, joints, and other body parts fall significantly. Fortunately, products like the Juvéderm Voluma™ filler can be applied to areas of the face that have fallen victim to the effects of aging. In our Westlake Village practice, men and women of all ages are asking about this anti-aging treatment.
Juvéderm Voluma™ seems like a relatively new product in the United States. It has been used in Europe for ten years and is also common in more than 72 other countries. Patients appreciate the formulation designed to restore fullness in the mid-face for its efficacy and its comfort. Combined with lidocaine, this filler can be administered with mild, if any, uncomfortable sensations.
Dr. Daphne Panagotacos and her associates understand that the signs of aging require specific correction. Each patient is assessed for his or her unique needs before any particular product or treatment is recommended. Rejuvenation is carefully planned and performed with the intent of achieving beautifully natural effects; such as rounder, younger-looking contours, where necessary.
The Voluma™ difference
While lines and wrinkles can be the first signs of aging to become noticeable, there is also a loss of volume that occurs with every passing year. It is often not until this loss has become severe that treatment is sought. If you have noticed your cheekbones appear flatter or your jaw line looks droopy, you are aware of the issue of volume loss.
Historically, sagging skin has been corrected surgically. Though a face lift can tighten loose skin, this procedure does not replace volume to underlying tissue. This is an important aspect to the natural rejuvenation of your appearance. Fortunately, volume restoration is possible with the right soft tissue filler.
Juvéderm Voluma™ is designed specifically for the replacement of volume in the cheek area. Like other Juvéderm fillers, this product is made with hyaluronic acid. It also features a durable gel consistency that is achieved with cross-linking. The consistency of Voluma™, in addition to its strategic application, is what makes this product best suited to the challenges of the mid-face. The lift that comes from treatment can last up to two years.
