What is Juvéderm Volux®?
Juvéderm Volux® is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that defines and enhances the chin and jawline structure.
What can I expect from my treatment?
Upon your appointment to Renewal Med Spa, one of our skilled nurse injectors will first cleanse the treatment area, then inject the filler which only takes a few short minutes. Afterwards, you will be able to see results immediately, however, optimal results will settle in after about four weeks. You may notice a bit of irritation shortly after treatment, but applying a bit of ice can cool any minor swelling.
Results can last up to a year and the most common side effects are temporary redness, tenderness or itching limited to the treatment site. What makes Volux® superior to other jawline filler alternatives, is that it’s paired with lidocaine for a more comfortable application experience, provides an overall more natural appearance, and its HA composition makes it dissolvable upon request with a simple enzyme. This is a great alternative for those searching for a less invasive method than surgery to revive that youthful shape and contour.
What is the active ingredient in Juvéderm Volux®?
The active ingredient in Volux® is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance the skin naturally produces. As we get older, the levels of HA present in the skin begin to decline, resulting in a loss of volume and sunken or sagging cheeks. Volux® integrates into the existing collagen and elastin in the skin tissue to offer greater support and elasticity. This can provide a noticeable smoothing and firming affect to the skin and lend the facial structure more substantial definition.
Who is a good Candidates for Juvéderm Volux® Treatment?
Adults 21 and older who notice loss of definition to their chin or jaw line may be good candidates for treatment with Juvéderm Volux®. Typical early signs of aging may include a visible decrease in volume, a sagging of the cheeks or the loss of noticeable contour around the chin. While these are more commonly problems that people face as they age, younger men and women may experience them as well due to weight loss, heredity or a number of other factors. Alternatively, Volux® can augment the natural jawline or chin for a bolder appearance.
