If you’re looking for the most naturally youthful appearance possible, it’s likely you’ve stumbled across Juvederm Voluma during your research.  As we age, the face loses essential fats that are critical to maintaining youthful volume in the cheeks.  The end result is a hollow, drooping look that can’t be fixed with any anti-wrinkle cream or Botox injection.

That’s why more people are turning to Juvederm Voluma for younger-looking results that look incredibly natural.  Yet many people are afraid to introduce Voluma into their anti-aging regimen for one reason: they’re afraid it might make their cheeks look fat.

So does Voluma increase facial volume in an unflattering way – or will your cheeks look smooth and healthy?  Let’s find out!

All About Juvederm Voluma

This innovative treatment – which was recently approved by the FDA – is used to enhance volume and contouring in the facial area, particularly around the cheeks.  Voluma is comprised of a thicker hyaluronic acid gel; hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally within the skin, which promotes the production of collagen and elastin.

Once injected into the cheeks, the thicker consistency of the gel is used to immediately increase the cheeks, promoting a more youthful look.  Results typically last for up to two years, which makes this one of the most low-maintenance anti-aging injections around.  What’s more, it has little to no side effects, which is one of the reasons why it was approved by the FDA.

But the question remains: Will it make your cheeks – and your face – look fat?

It Depends!

Like with most anti-aging treatments, your results will depend upon the professional who is administering the treatments.  For example, if an aesthetician is too heavy-handed with a Botox treatment, you might end up with the “frozen” face that’s a dead giveaway of Botox.  The same rule of thumb applies with Juvederm Voluma – if it’s administered by anyone other than a professional, you might not get the results you’re looking for.

That’s why you should entrust your face to Dr. Mark Craig of Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, Mississippi.  As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Craig has the insight, experience, and subtle touch that can help produce the most natural-looking results.
