What is Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™?
Juvederm™ Voluma™ is the latest of the Juvederm range of hyaluronic acid fillers specifically designed to restore volume in areas of volume loss. Common areas include the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Additionally, due to its versatility it is also suitable for adding definition to the jaw line.
How does IT work to achieve its results?
According to facial aesthetic expert Dr Herve Raspaldo, an attractive face is characterised by smooth, round contours, high cheekbones and a thin, well-defined jaw line. These features together comprise the ‘triangle of beauty’ or ‘heart of face’, with its base at the top and summit below.
As we age, facial fat loss, gravity and loss of the skins natural elasticity conspire to reverse this triangle’s composition, leading to a narrower, less youthful forehead and temple area, and a wider, heavier jaw line.
Who is a suitable for treatment?
Patients with facial volume loss due to ageing, sudden or extreme weight loss or certain medical problems such as facial asymmetry or droop can benefit from treatment with Juvederm Voluma. However patient selection is important to discuss suitability with this treatment.
Will an anaesthetic be required with this type of filler?
Most patients have a comfortable experience aside from feeling a slight initial pinprick. Occasionally if a lot of volume is required for extra skin projection patients may feel slightly sore for which Paracetamol after the treatment will be appropriate to relieve the discomfort. For patients with a needle phobia we offer topical numbing cream to alleviate any anxieties.
