Juvederm VOLUMA with Lidocaine is injectible hyaluronic volumiser that recontours the face to restore volume to chin, cheeks, and cheekbones that have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age related fat loss. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found inside the human body. It’s key properties are to keep the skin hydrated whilst adding plumpness. HA naturally breaks down in the body during metabolism and is then replaced. However as we get older and our metabolism slows down, replacement of HA is less often which results in less hydrated skin and less volume in the skin.
The effects can be seen for up to 18 months.
Common symptoms such as swelling, bruising and redness can occur at the site of gel injection. Resolution is usually within one week.
