Juvederm Voluma

If your cheeks have lost volume with age, try using an injectable filler. At Dr. Frances J Segal and staff  of Southern California, we offer non-surgical cheek filler naturally derived from your own skin. Juvederm Voluma Carlsbad is a deep injection that restores fullness to your face. The result is a younger version of yourself.juvederm voluma carlsbad

What is Juvederm Voluma Made Of?

Juvederm Voluma is an injectable composed of hyaluronic acid. This biodegradable substance retains moisture (up to 1000 times its water weight). It exists between the cells of your body. Hyaluronic acid works tirelessly to maintain optimal skin texture, moisture and firmness. Within the skin, it lubricates the connective tissues in the joints and skin!

As a product, this injectable is potent because it can aid your skin in sustaining suppleness. As you age, you lose more hyaluronic acid. Babies are born with a lot and have soft, smooth skin as a result. Therefore, this filler can also soften and improve your complexion.*

Whether you want to diminish the signs of aging or create more volume, Juvederm Voluma can enhance your appearance. Your cheeks are the central feature of your face. They buffer your face from the bones and underlying skeletal structure. While many remark that the eyes are the windows to the soul, in fact your cheeks work equally hard to frame your face!

The Juvederm collection addresses a variety of skin ailments, such as harsh and apparent smile lines, thin lips and smoker lines. Juvederm Voluma can plump up cheeks that are sagging or undefined. As opposed to topical hyaluronic acid applications, this filler penetrates the skin. The compound is very large and requires such an application. Don’t worry though–it is only a minimally invasive procedure. Delivery by injection is vital.

How Does Juvederm Voluma Create Harmony in the Face?

Cheeks are important to the facial structure. Thin cheeks do not properly support the face. Skin may appear sunken and unhealthy. On the other hand, cheeks can appear too thick. They may look unnatural or exaggerated. At Dr. Frances J Segal and staff, we work with your natural appearance. We find that the best beauty comes from honoring the natural appearance and working up its better features while downplaying those features that reveal aging.

What is Injection Like?

Receiving a dermal filler is a breeze. You can be in and out of our office in as little as twenty minutes. Of course, you will need to attend both a consultation and treatment. The consultation enables you to get comfortable with your decision and identify the cosmetic enhancement that is right for you!

At the consultation, the provider will answer any questions or concerns you have. It is essential we have a conference in order to manage expectations and hear your aesthetic goals. In addition, we want you to have an accurate projection of your appearance. This will ensure we are on the same page regarding your cosmetic enhancements!

On the day of injection, we can administer topical lidocaine to help with pain. Alternatively, we might administer lidocaine with the injection to immediately minimize pain of delivery. Most patients receiving Juvederm Voluma Carlsbad believe the pain is comparable to a vaccine.

After your injection, you can return to your normal, daily activities. If you fear you might have to hide away for a couple days, know that you won’t need downtime!* Often described as a lunchtime procedure, Juvederm Voluma takes very little time to receive and enables you to return to your daily responsibilities in no time.

We take your safety seriously. That’s why we disclose a list of conditions which may disqualify you from receiving this dermal filler.

You must be 21 in order to receive this injectable. Other possible contradictions may include being:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • On immunosuppressive therapy

If you are looking for wrinkle reduction, we recommend a wrinkle relaxer such as Botox. Try both Juvederm Voluma and Botox for a powerful overall enhancement!

Who Manufactures Juvederm Voluma?

Juvederm Voluma is a product developed by the leading cosmetic manufacturer, Allergan. The company produces best-selling hyaluronic acid fillers in the United States. Due to its reputation as an established company, we trust its products on our clients. Plus, it’s important to note that lots of products pretending to be created by Allergan are floating around in medical spas that lack proper licensing and violate regulations. These illegal counterfeit products pose a huge health risk to consumers.

We recommend you stick to trusted practitioners and always check that a doctor is on staff, which is a legal requirement for cosmetic medical practices! At Aesthetic Laser Specialists, Dr. Frances Segal is also here to answer any of your health-related questions. Visit our page for more information about Allergan’s Juvederm Collection.

How Long Do Results Last?

This filler is a rockstar in the Juvederm Collection. In fact, some patients receiving Juvederm Voluma Carlsbad have reported to Allergan that results last up to five years! We cannot guarantee such results. Allergan reports that Juvederm Voluma is the only cheek filler proven to last up to two years in the cheek area.
