As much as we wish it weren’t true, skin aging is real and affects all of us. Time takes a severe toll on the skin and lost facial volume is extremely common. With time, you may notice that your skin is losing its youthful plumpness and becoming thinner with each passing year.
Luckily, there’s something that can be done about lost facial volume. Juvéderm is a popular facial filler that comes in many different formulations to combat the signs of aging. For lost facial volume, Juvéderm Voluma XC is an ideal choice.
What Causes Lost Facial Volume?
First, let’s clarify why lost facial volume happens in the first place. There are several factors that contribute to this common sign of skin aging, including:
- Natural breakdown of collagen and elastin
- Decreased fat tissue beneath the skin
- Lost water/ hydration in the skin
- Stretched skin tissue caused by gravity
For many people, age-related facial volume loss primarily occurs in the midface region. Juvéderm Voluma XC is FDA-approved for cheek and chin augmentation to help resolve age-related midface volume loss.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid which helps to restore lost facial volume. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin along with the eyes and joints. It retains moisture, keeps your skin hydrated, and lubricates the joints. Unfortunately, over time, your skin naturally produces less hyaluronic acid, which inevitably contributes to age-related skin changes.
When Juvéderm is injected into areas with lost facial volume, it replenishes your skin’s natural moisture and results in plumper and tighter skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
You’ll notice a near immediate improvement to your skin’s appearance after receiving your Juvéderm Voluma injections, and the results typically last around five years.
