As we age, it’s natural for our skin to sag, our cheeks to hollow out, and fine lines and wrinkles to become more pronounced. But just because the effects of aging are to expected, it doesn’t mean we have to live with them. Here at Beautique Medical Anti-Aging in Knoxville, TN, we can turn back the clock with Botox Juvederm Voluma, an effective and natural-looking method of revitalizing the skin. If you’re ready to say goodbye to wrinkles and hello to supple, more gorgeous-looking skin, read on to learn more.
How Can You Lift Your Cheeks? Discover the Benefits of Voluma
This groundbreaking Botox Juvederm, FDA-approved injectable restores volume to aging, weathered skin, filling out hollow cheeks and lifting sagging areas on the face. It does this using hyaluronic acid, which is a chemical that occurs naturally in the body and keeps the skin plump and firm.
As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid, resulting in a loss of elasticity that makes the skin droop and wrinkles form. By rejuvenating the skin with a fresh dose of hyaluronic acid, patients can achieve revitalized skin that makes them look younger with a gorgeous glow in a matter of minutes!
How Does This Treatment Work?
This Botox Juvederm treatment is administered via injection. A small needle filled with the product is inserted into the problem area and then following your session the hyaluronic acid will get to work. With more voluminous cheeks, you may notice your face start to change its structure. That’s because as your cheeks fill out, your facelifts, and your jawline becomes more pronounced.
The result is a sharper face shape that, paired with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, looks more youthful and stunning! Best of all, the results are totally natural-looking, so you can feel gorgeous without worrying about looking “worked on” or overdone. No one has to know you got this treatment unless you tell them.
Why Do My Cheeks Change As I Age?
Did you know that your cheeks are one of the first parts of your body to change shape when you age? This can be upsetting as it really changes the shape of your face and is a very noticeable sign of aging. You may even end up looking older than you are. But why exactly do your cheeks change like this?
One reason is a loss of fat. As we get older, the way fat is distributed in the body changes. For example, as many people reach their thirties they start to lose facial fat, which can make the cheeks look hollow or sunken. Once this has happened, it can be hard to undo it. Skincare products might claim to add volume to the skin, but if they can’t actually get underneath and target the cells and tissue inside then they don’t really do anything.
Collagen, meanwhile, is the protein that keeps your skin tight and full of volume, so without it, the skin succumbs to the effects of gravity, sagging, and drooping as wrinkles form. As we age, our body’s production of collagen slows. Not only that but spending too much time in the sun can also damage the collagen already in your body and even stop it from producing more. The result is a more aged face with less structure and plumpness.
What About Surgical Alternatives?
Some people look to remedy this with surgical options such as facelifts, but this can be an expensive method that requires a lot of recovery time following the procedure. Not everyone has the money or time. Plus there’s the risk of infection and concerns about reactions to anesthesia. But with injectables like Botox JuvedermVoluma, you can be back to work on the same day.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
People love this treatment because it’s so simple and straightforward but at the same time so effective. Many of our patients report that they’re thrilled at how easy it is! We’ll start by getting you comfortable and carefully cleaning the treatment area, making it sterile. We’ll do a few injections with a fine syringe and it will all be over in a matter of minutes.
What Will Recovery Be Like?
Amazingly, recovering from this treatment is very simple and straightforward. You can largely go back to your regular lifestyle and carry on with normal activities. You won’t need to take time off work and in fact should be able to go back – or return to any other plans you had scheduled – immediately after your session!
That being said, we’ll advise that you avoid harsh sunlight on your skin for about 24 hours after treatment, as the area will be particularly sensitive to UV rays. You should also refrain from strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and smoking. We’ll be able to give you more specific advice after your treatment tailored to your lifestyle.
When Will I Be Able To See Results?
Patients’ results develop quickly following your session. Some people notice improvements immediately afterward, while for others it can take a little longer. Either way, most patients notice the full benefits at around 10-14 days and are thrilled with their plump and radiant skin.
How Long Do Results Last?
Amazingly, the results of this treatment can last for up to two years. The exact amount of time depends, of course, on the individual. Everyone’s body will process the filler at a different rate, plus we use a different amount of product on each patient based on their cosmetic concerns.
All of this will affect exactly how long the results last. Still, these lasting results are in contrast to a lot of other injectables on the market, which have much shorter lifespans, often only lasting about four months. When you do start to notice the effects wearing off, we’ll recommend you come back in for a maintenance session.
How Can I Best Maintain My Results?
While this treatment is amazing in that it really does reshape your face and diminish lines and wrinkles, we always recommend taking extra steps to keep your skin looking gorgeous and fresh.
Drinking lots of water, eating well, and getting enough sleep will keep your skin extra supple. Always wearing sunscreen and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are great ways to prevent worsening existing wrinkles or creating new ones. And of course, having a consistent beauty routine that keeps your skin hydrated and clean is very important!
Will I Be Satisfied With the Results?
This treatment is becoming more and more popular because it has proven, lasting effects. Studies show that 90% of patients who received this treatment were more satisfied with their appearance six months afterward. We’ll also ensure that the results line up with what you were hoping to get out of treatment thanks to a treatment plan tailored specifically to you.
Here at Beautique Medical Anti-Aging in Knoxville, TN, we understand the importance of getting exactly what you asked for and will target your problem areas directly.
How Is This Treatment Different From Botox?
You’ve probably heard of Botox and understand that it’s one of the most popular cosmetic solutions on the market. While Botox is an injectable just like Botox Juvederm Voluma and is also used to combat aging, it works very differently.
Botox utilizes a product called Botulinum toxin. When injected into the face, it blocks nerve signals from reaching your muscles. When your muscles aren’t moving, the skin on top of them becomes more relaxed and softens. This means you can frown, raise your eyebrows, smile, and pull a silly face in a photo without deep lines forming. Not only is Botox an excellent treatment to use against deep, dynamic wrinkles, but it can be used to stop excessive sweating and even stop migraines.
Can I Combine Botox and Voluma?
If your wrinkles are going deeper than what you think Botox Juvederm Voluma may be able to properly remedy, but you still want to target sagging skin and hollow cheeks, then you can think about getting both injectables together. This is something we can talk about during your consultation and make sure it’s right for you.
Often a combination of products can be used together to achieve the cosmetic goals a person wants, so even if Botox isn’t a good fit, another service we offer here at Beautique Medical Anti-Aging may work for you.
And What About Other Dermal Fillers?
Even if you’ve decided to stay away from Botox, other injectables yield different results for patients. All of Botox Juvederm dermal fillers have unique formulas that improve one’s appearance in different ways.
This filler targets deeper, more pronounced wrinkles in the face, as well as fine lines. They’re especially effective around the mouth, where smile lines and wrinkles that go from the corners of the mouth and down the chin may be disturbing an otherwise beautiful smile. Generally, the results of this filler last for about eighteen months.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC
Like Vollure, this filler targets moderate-to-severe lines on the face, but can last for a slightly shorter amount of time. Many patients experience results for about a year. It works well as a lip filler, plumping up the lips for an absolutely stunning smile.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Anyone who is over 18 and wants to fill out their hollow cheeks and remedy sagging skin is likely an optimal candidate for treatment. There’s no “one age” to start looking into cosmetic treatments, as it’s a personal decision and sagging skin can affect people as early as their twenties. We also encourage people of any gender and skin tone to seek out treatment if they’d like, because wrinkles, after all, affect everyone!
It’s not likely for patients to have an allergic reaction to hyaluronic acid specifically as it occurs naturally in the body; no foreign substance is being injected. That being said, patients who have a history of allergic reactions may not be suitable for treatment. Some bacterial proteins could cause allergies, as well as some of the other ingredients. During your consultation, we’ll have a look at your medical history and ensure this treatment is compatible with your body and any medication you might be on.
