Reduce the Appearance of Age Lines with JUVÃDERM VOLUMA XC
What is JUVÃDERM VOLUMAâ¢ XC?
JUVÃDERM VOLUMAâ¢ XC is an injectable gel for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21.
As we age, our skin gradually loses volume, contributing to less full-looking cheeks and more prominent lines and wrinkles throughout your face. Although entirely natural, visible signs of aging can leave you looking older than you feel. If youâve struggled to accept your wrinkles, know youâre not aloneâand youâre not out of luck. There is a simple way to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without harsh chemical treatments or the use of Botox. This method is known as JUVÃDERM VOLUMA XC, and it may be the answer youâve been looking for. This injectable gel is specifically formulated for deep injection in the cheek area, helping correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21.
What is JUVÃDERM VOLUMA XC and how is it different from Botox?
JUVÃDERM is a natural product formulated to help rebuild volume to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging. The process works by injecting a thick gel into the cheek and around the cheekbones. The gel helps lift the skin without damaging the healthy skin cells at the site. While you will see immediate results, youâll notice the largest improvement a few weeks after your initial treatment. This allows the changes youâll see in your face appear more natural and less forced, and thus more youthful.
Botox, on the other hand, is a toxin that paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. While it does work to visibly reduce signs of aging, it leaves you unable to fully express your emotions by raising an eyebrow or smiling fully. Botox is derived from botulin, a bacterial toxin that, in small amounts, provides temporary anti-aging effects. When used properly, it should not pose a health hazard, but the effects appear synthetic: Everyone will know you received a treatment the moment the injection starts working.
JUVÃDERM VOLUMA XC is different from JUVÃDERM
Though both JUVÃDERM VOLUMA XC and standard JUVÃDERM treat the appearance of fine lines, they target different areas. JUVÃDERM VOLUMA is ideal for patients concerned about the volume of their cheeks, while JUVÃDERM works best in the lip and chin areas, restoring volume to your grin and lip line. The two formulas differ in consistency and elasticity, so they cannot be used interchangeably. Prior to scheduling a treatment, youâll want to speak with your dermatologist at Swyner-Woseth Dermatology to discuss the areas youâre most concerned about.
Regardless of which solution you use or where the injection is applied, youâll receive long-lasting results that will help give you a youthful look for up to two years. Best of all, thereâs little to no downtime after the procedure, so you can immediately enjoy the feeling of a vibrant complexion. With so many benefits, why settle for unwanted lines and wrinkles when you can immediately reduce the signs of aging with a simple procedure?
