Juvederm Voluma, manufactured by Allergan, has recently been approved by the FDA for rejuvenation of the upper face. Here, I break down the main need-to-knows about the injection of Juvederm Voluma for cheeks!
Slicker than your average...
[list_item]The deeper, the better. The standard Juvederm Voluma injection technique dictates that a large, blunt tipped cannula is needed in order to deposit the material deep into the facial muscles. This means Voluma can really elevate descended soft tissues - plus every syringe includes a dose of local anaesthetic, alleviating pain.
[list_item]It's versatile. Juvederm Voluma for cheeks forms the standard approach, but injecting it into this area has other benefits too, diminishing nasolabial folds and improving jowling in the lower face. As it's stable and not prone to migration, Juvederm Voluma for chin augmentation is another great "off label" use.
[list_item]How long does Juvederm Voluma last? The minimum amount of time is about one year, but it can last for up to 18 months and even 2 years. Vycross™ technology is what gives Juvederm Voluma longevity. Its higher G prime (viscosity) means that it lasts longer than other Juvederm fillers.
[list_item]It can be reversed. Juvederm Voluma removal can be performed by injecting an enzyme called hyaluronidase into the area. Unlike Radiesse, Sculptura and Artefill, all of which you're stuck with for irrespective of whether you like the results or not, you can easily change your mind with Voluma.
Some advantages of using the cannula over the needle
It's important to emphasise that early Juvederm Voluma reviews have been promising. Doctors and dermatologists have shown a lot of enthusiasm since "Juvederm Voluma FDA Approved" became the hottest news topic among the global community of medical professionals! A recent Juvederm Voluma study was compiled by Dr Jean Carruthers, who reported in a peer reviewed medical journal that doctor and patient satisfaction with Voluma was high:
"Physicians reported the agent was highly effective as well as easy to inject, sculpt and mold. The treatment was generally well tolerated and no instances of product migration from the injection site have been reported. Patient satisfaction was high, with the vast majority of trial participants acknowledging they would return for additional treatment and recommend the treatment to friends."
Aside from patient reviews of Voluma, here are some impressive results direct from the manufacturer, Allergan:
