There’s no one-size-fits-all answer here as many factors can affect how long Juvederm Voluma lasts for you. As age takes hold, more lines and wrinkles appear. Your face can appear sunken or hollowed in certain areas too where levels of depleting skin, fat, and bone along with less elasticity reveal the cruel hands of time. With dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma, it can correct these problems, using a hyaluronic acid basis that is safe and effective in keeping dermal tissue plump and hydrated.
Why Choose Juvederm Voluma?
Made by Allergan which brands Juvederm, the Voluma version is made from hyaluronic acid that comes from natural origins. The FDA has approved it since 2013 to correct age-related volume loss. The unique manufacturing process for Juvederm Voluma makes it the thickest and firmest formulation. This means you get the best lift and support, especially for those areas that have substantial loss of volume.
It's little wonder why Voluma is often dubbed the “liquid facelift” since the injections give a more youthful appearance, shape, and enhance to reestablish contours.
Things to Consider for How Long Juvederm Voluma Will Last
While it’s FDA-approved and highly-recommended, certain factors will impact how long your results will last.
- Area of treatment
Much of how long it lasts will depend on where you have it injected. If you have it in an area that doesn’t get much muscle movement, like the tip of your nose, it will last far longer than if you had it on the lips.
- Volume of injection
With a smaller amount of filler used, you can expect that the results won’t last as long. You shouldn’t overdo it with any filler though and go by the advise of a licensed medical professional.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body but in its purest form, it can degrade quite quickly once inside the body. That’s why these fillers are chemically adjusted with cross-linking to make it last longer. When a filler is more highly cross-linked, it will last longer.
- Experience of administrator
The techniques employed as well as the experience of the person doing the injecting will impact how long it lasts too. You should always select a board-certified doctor that has experience with Juvederm Voluma to administer your injections.
- Other factors
Your lifestyle and habits like sunning or smoking, the type of skin you have, genetics, and the foods you eat can all impact how long the filler lasts. The better you care for your health, the more chance you have of this filler lasting longer.
Depending on these factors, if you have Juvederm Voluma injected into the midface area, it can last as many as 2 years in duration. It’s a worthy investment that is among the longest-lasting of the dermal fillers available today.
