A person may experience thinning of skin in the mid-face and facial volume loss over time due to a variety of reasons such as aging, genetics, sun damage, illness, and other factors.
The FDA has given its approval to this procedure exclusively for adding volume to depleted cheeks. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss the potential benefits and limitations of Voluma XC, including the sustainability of its results.
Suncoast Skin Solutions, led by board certified dermatologist Dr. Christopher Ewanowski, provides dermal filler treatments to patients in Tampa, Brandon, Lutz, Seminole, Riverview, Brooksville, Winter Haven, Daytona Beach, Largo, St. Petersburg, Ocala, Sarasota, Central Florida, Florida, and surrounding communities.
Longevity of Outcomes
The main active ingredient in Juvederm Voluma XC is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a biocompatible substance. Many dermal fillers contain HA. However, the concentration of HA is much higher in Juvederm Voluma gel.
Additionally, the molecules are cross-linked more robustly in this filler, which enables it to provide more sustainable results to patients in comparison to other HA-based fillers.
Juvederm Voluma XC can last for up to two years, even more in some cases. This period is comparatively much longer than the average longevity of many other filler injectables, which usually last for six months to a year.
In a primary research study to establish the sustainability and effectiveness of Voluma XC, patients were injected with six syringes of this dermal filler. After two years, their outcomes were assessed. A majority of patients still found the results satisfactory.
Variability of Outcomes
Juvederm Voluma medical spa injectable treatment has estimated longevity of two years which has been proven over time. However, patients should be cognizant that individual outcomes may differ, similar to any other cosmetic dermatology procedure. Various factors will have an impact on the actual longevity of the outcomes in each case.
Factors such as the patient’s metabolism and activity level as well as the depth and location of the injection may differ in each case. Some patients may experience significant cheek volume loss and may need more units of the filler gel. The treatment gel administered in each case may differ.
In almost every case, Juvederm Voluma is likely to produce aesthetically appealing and sustainable outcomes. A majority of patients will be able to enjoy the results on the injectable treatment from anywhere between one to two years. The longevity of the treatment depends on various factors, including how the patient’s body responds to the procedure.
HA is a standard substance used in many dermal fillers. However, the sustainability of the outcomes depends on how the material is prepared. Some experts use two balls of yarn, approximately the same size, to explain the strength of Voluma XC.
If one ball is wound tightly while the other is rather loosely wound, the ball that is wound more tightly will naturally take a longer period to come undone. Similarly, Voluma contains tightly cross-linked HA molecules, which enables them to stick together and sustain for longer.
