Voluma: A Powerful New Tool in the Anti-Aging Arsenal

If you are a man or woman looking to combat the gradual effect that time has on the human form, then you might want to listen up. A new treatment from Juvederm is specifically designed to help counteract some of the most subtle symptoms of aging, but it can have a tremendous effect.

Here's how it works. As you age, the small fat deposits in and around your cheek bones begin to decay. While normally less fat is considered a boon, here it has a slightly less benign effect.

That is because the skin on your face is designed to compensate for the fat deposit. As the deposit thins, the skin starts to become loose. This is what creates that loose, hanging skin that plagues so many of us.

In the past, the only way to combat this effect was to mitigate the symptoms by removing excess skin. But treating the symptom is rarely an effective way to fix a problem. Without the pads of fat, the tighter skin can create an austere, cold looking visage -- especially for men and women with strong, angular features.

Juvederm® Voluma, on the other hand, addresses the problem head on. By introducing a gel that replicates the fat deposits, it actually manages to reverse the aging process. It does that by recreating the original shape of the face.

Imagine two identical dresses. One you put on a wooden hanger, the other a mannequin. The one on a hanger might look fine, you can see the color and the general shape, but you cannot realize it's full dimension without the physical contour of the mannequin.

Not only do these treatments help to give you a tighter appearance, it actually allows skilled professionals at your medical spa to recreate your more youthful appearance.

Skin tightening has been a popular procedure for a long time, and not just for women. In 2015, nonsurgical skin tightening was the fifth most popular procedure performed on men.

The most important thing to remember when exploring Voluma is to find a skilled and practiced professional. One key way to tell if someone is an expert is if they ask you to bring an older picture of yourself.

This picture will help them plot where you are experiencing a thinning in your fat pads, and plan site-specific injections that will help to create a seamless look.
