Juvéderm® VOLUMA® is an injectable hyaluronic acid volumizer used to restore volume to the areas on the face that have become hollow or thin (mainly chin, cheeks, and cheekbones). The areas treated will immediately become rounder and fuller after the treatment, and, your results have been shown to last up to 18 months!
What to expect with a Juvéderm® VOLUMA® Treatment
A Juvéderm® VOLUMA® Treatment will take around 20 minutes. First, the area will be cleaned and then the physician will inject the Juvéderm® VOLUMA® into the treatment site. After the injection, the physician will gently rub the area to smooth out the surface and make sure Juvéderm® VOLUMA® is properly distributed.
After treatment, you may experience bruising, discoloration, or swelling.
After the Juvéderm® VOLUMA® Treatment, you should take the following steps:
- Apply ice as necessary, for up to 24 hours
- Take anti-inflammatory medication according to your physician’s instructions
- Avoid massaging the treated area
- Avoid sun exposure as a general precaution
- Avoid sleeping on treated areas for 1 or 2 days
Be sure to discuss any concerns you have with your physician or his or her staff. You should plan on a follow-up appointment from 2 to 4 weeks after your initial treatment; this allows your physician to check the results of the treatment, to assess whether any touch-up is necessary, and to ensure that you’re pleased with the results.
