The aging process affects people in different ways. But no one wants to be perceived as being older than what they really are. For this reason, there has been a whole host of surgical and very invasive procedures that are designed to address sagging skin or that are designed to provide your face with more volume. But even if a person undergoes a surgical procedure to rejuvenate their appearance and everything goes perfectly, there is still the discomfort, the downtime and the loss of productivity that is connected with this procedure. Fortunately, thanks to products like Juvederm Voluma™ XC, restoring facial volume is possible without needing to undergo surgery. There is also no downtime associated with the treatment.
This may be the first time that you’ve heard of Juvederm Voluma™ XC, so it’s understandable that you want to know what it is. Basically, it is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient. It is designed to add volume to the hollow areas in your face. It achieves this goal in two ways. First, the dermal filler itself adds volume to your face. Second, the hyaluronic acid attracts and holds water molecules. This adds volume to the soft tissues in the area that is being treated and creates a long-term volumizing effect.
The nice thing about hyaluronic acid is that it is a molecule that your body naturally produces. It’s what your body naturally uses to retain moisture or to lubricate your joints. Unfortunately, as you get older, your body produces less and less of the substance, and the result is the unfortunate side effects of aging that everyone is plagued with to one degree or another.
As your body produces less hyaluronic acid, your skin becomes drier, and it becomes thinner. Juvederm Voluma™ XC can reverse that entire process. It provides fresh hyaluronic acid to the parts of your skin where it has been lost. You end up with skin that is noticeably more youthful. Your skin is fuller, and it is more moisturized.
The entire procedure is very simple. During treatment at our med spa in Naples, the gel containing the product is skillfully injected into the treated area. Immediately you will notice added volume to your face. Juvederm Voluma™ XC is a great treatment for anyone who wants to stay looking younger longer.
