It is unfortunate, but over the years, the face naturally loses fatty tissue and collagen. Even on the healthiest of individuals, volume loss below the eyes and across the cheeks can make the face appear older, tired, and unwell. Add these normal changes to the harsh effects of smoking, sun damage, and weight fluctuations, and our face can look much older than we feel inside.
Men and women in Sonoma and Marin County have found the aesthetic experts at Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa can restore a youthful appearance by replenishing lost volume across the cheeks and under the eyes without surgery. Juvederm Voluma XC quickly restores contours throughout the mid-face without any incisions or downtime.
Juvederm Voluma XC from Allegro MedSpa
Juvederm Voluma XC is a cutting-edge, smooth-gel filler, created from naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The first dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to replenish depleted facial volume, Juvederm Voluma XC provides unique, long-lasting results. When applied by an experienced injector, Juvederm Voluma XC can sculpt the cheeks and jawline, restoring a youthful appearance.
Juvederm Voluma XC Can:
- Restore facial volume
- Sculpt the cheeks
- Refresh the appearance
- Last for up to two years
An important component of healthy, plump skin, HA draws in moisture from surrounding tissues to consistently add volume below the eyes. Over the months to come, one session will continue to provide long-lasting results. As the HA encourages the body’s own production of collagen and elastin, the skin stays remains smooth and the features contoured. Juvederm Voluma XC is the perfect, noninvasive solution to temporarily improve a tired and unhealthy appearance.
Your Juvederm Voluma XC Consultation
Prior to scheduling your Juvederm Voluma XC session, one of the aesthetic team at Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa will perform a confidential, in-depth consultation. Led by Dr. Francisco Canales or Dr. Heather Furnas, your facial tissues and skin elasticity will be closely evaluated, as well as your medical history. The practitioner will discuss both your short-term and long-term aesthetic goals. The benefits and limitations of Juvederm Voluma XC will be presented, as well as a variety of Before/After photographs of recent patients. If Juvederm Voluma XC is determined as the right product for your needs, a personalized treatment plan will be created. At this time, the exact cost of treatment and all payments options will be discussed, as well.
The Ideal Candidate for Treatment with Juvederm Voluma XC
The ideal candidate for Juvederm Voluma XC can be almost anyone beginning to see a loss of facial volume across the cheeks or below the eyes. Potential patients need to be in overall good health, understand the dermal filler treatment process, and hold realistic results for the final results. Those with an active skin infection or a known allergy to lidocaine may not be a good patient for Juvederm Voluma XC. In this situation, Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas can explain other options for facial rejuvenation.
