Juvederm Voluma’s important role
The older an individual gets, the less volume their face has. Loss of facial volume is one of the most unpleasant signs of aging. That is because the face starts to appear more tired and sunken. It loses its contours which leads to sagging and wrinkles. Juvederm Voluma adds volume where it is most needed. It targets mainly the midface and it can also be used for a non-surgical, non-invasive cheek augmentation.
Are there any side effects?
All injectable products and medical devices can potentially lead to undesired reactions and that statement is also valid for Juvederm Voluma. Some of the side effects that have been reported after a treatment with this advanced dermal filler are swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness and sensitivity around the injection sites. They occur in very rare instances and normally subside within a week. Despite that, this is an FDA-approved product which means that it offers an impressive level of safety and high satisfaction. Patients will not even need to undergo a test prior to the injection treatment as the cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid in it is biodegradable and biocompatible.
