Juvederm Voluma & Restylane Lyft in Washington, DC
What are Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft?
Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft are high molecular weight hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used for mid and upper face volume restoration. As we age, the amount of natural collagen, fat, and other substances which provide volume to our facial features decreases in our cheeks and temples. This volume loss leads to a ‘hollowed out’ appearance, frequently accompanied by sagging skin. Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft instantly replace the lost hyaluronic acid in these areas, increasing facial volume safely and naturally.
Are Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft more effective than other fillers for facial volume loss?
As high molecular weight fillers, Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft maintain both their form and position once injected, providing significant volume replacement which is difficult to achieve with the more pliable low molecular weight fillers. These fillers also typically provide longer lasting results, with an average duration of 8-12 months. In a large clinical study, patients who underwent Juvederm Voluma treatments perceived themselves to appear 5 years younger after 6 months, and 3 years younger after 24 months. However, result longevity is subjective and cannot be guaranteed.
Who is an appropriate candidate for volume restoration treatment with Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Lyft?
These fillers are designed for patients who desire a fuller, more contoured profile and youthful appearance to their cheeks or other facial areas where facial volume has decreased over time. They are not designed for use in fine lines, wrinkles, or lips, and should never be used to for this purpose.
Are these treatments reversible?
Yes! Unlike other volume restoring fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse, these hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved partially or fully at any point after the procedure with an injectable solution (Hyaluronidase) if a patient is not pleased with their results.
