Getting older has its perks, but it’s not always fun. Your body no longer functions nor looks the way it did just a few years ago. As you go through the aging process, it’s likely you’ve noticed some changes in the amount of volume you have in your face. For most people, this loss of volume is most noticeable in their cheeks.
Your cheeks are among the most prominent parts of your face. Losing volume in your cheeks makes you look a lot older than you actually are. You may be surprised to know this, but the reason why your cheeks are losing volume is because your body is not producing an important substance called hyaluronic acid at the same levels that it did when you were younger. In younger people the body produces so much hyaluronic acid that their face is full. Younger people have thicker skin, and so they have fewer wrinkles. However, as you get older the situation changes. Your skin becomes thinner and fine lines and wrinkles start to show. This is where Juvederm Voluma® XC can be beneficial.
If this is the first time you’ve heard about hyaluronic acid in Atlanta, you’re probably curious to know about the role it plays in the aging process. If you have heard about hyaluronic acid before, it is likely you’ve read it as an ingredient in skin care products.
What makes hyaluronic acid so wonderful is its unique ability to not only attract moisture but also to hold onto it. This is what helps hyaluronic acid keep your skin thick and flexible. As it is depleted, your skin gets thinner and dryer.
A good way to think about hyaluronic acid is to think of it like water that is used to fill a water balloon. When a water balloon is full of water, it’s very tight. However, as the water seeps out of the balloon, it starts to develop wrinkles or creases. If you refill the water balloon with more water, the wrinkles and creases disappear.
The same is true with your face. Nature is depleting your levels of hyaluronic acid. So your skin is becoming wrinkled and developing creases. Juvederm Voluma® XC gives you an injection of hyaluronic acid, and this in turn rehydrates your skin. It makes your skin thicker and tighter and makes the wrinkles and creases that you don’t want disappear.
Juvederm Voluma® XC has been specially designed to help you get the best results from your treatment. The unique proprietary design of this dermal filler not only fills the treated area, but it also helps to raise or lift the mid-face. This is one of the reasons why the results from each dermal filler injection last so long.
There are a lot of reasons why people are turning to Juvederm Voluma® XC as a way of helping them add volume to their mid-face. The treatments themselves are very simple. Treatments can be performed in less than one hour. The results from the treatment are also instantaneous. You will be able to watch as the wrinkles and creases in your skin disappear.
Don’t let volume loss in your mid-face determined the way that you look. Look as young as you feel with the Juvederm Voluma® XC available at Abraza Skin Studio. Interested in getting a consultation? Call our Atlanta office today!
