As we age, our skin naturally starts to lose fat and collagen, which can cause the loss of volume as well as wrinkles and loose skin. Aging and weight loss it most noticeable in the fat pads in your mid face, especially in your cheeks. Cheeks can start to appear hollow as the soft tissues in the face descends. As they start to hollow out and flatten, fat pockets gravitate to your jawline, which is what causes the appearance of jowls. This change in your facial structure will cause the formation of folds and areas of hollowness that increase in severity over time.
A great, non-surgical way to slow down effects of aging is to strategically inject a dermal filler into the face. One of the best options of fillers for volume loss is Juvéderm Voluma XC. It’s a gel filler that FDA has approved not only for cheeks but also for chin and jawline. It’s made from hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our bodies and holds water. It nourishes the natural collagen in your skin to support the skin’s structure. It is also the first FDA-approved filler that instantly corrects the loss of volume in the mid face and cheek area.
Benefits of Juvéderm Voluma XC
One of the benefits of using this gel like filler to sculpt your jawline is that this filler can create a beautiful, well-defined contour to your face. When injected correctly, it will restore a youthful shape and curve to cheekbones and allow them to sit higher again. Because this formula is slightly thicker than most other fillers, it can hold the shape longer and it can also help to enhance your jawline’s existing structure, build a stronger chin and create separation between the jawline neck and other facial structures, giving the lower face a more significant contour.
Juvéderm Voluma is part of the Juvéderm collection of fillers that contains the company’s signature Vycross hyaluronic acid. In this formula, the hyaluronic acid has various sizes of molecules linked together to form the thickest, strongest gel out of the Juvéderm line. This means it can last longer than regular fillers, usually about two years, before it need to be redone.
