At Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru, IL, we offer aesthetic services to meet every need. Among our most popular services is Juvederm Voluma XC, an injectable dermal filler with numerous benefits, including its safety, efficacy, convenience, and durability. Here’s a brief summary of seven astonishing benefits of this incredibly versatile treatment.

7 Incredible Benefits of Juvederm Voluma

1. Safety

At the end of the day, there is nothing more important than your safety. That’s why we only offer aesthetic treatments that have been rigorously tested and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for safety. Juvederm Voluma XC is no exception. The FDA has approved this treatment for the safe treatment of hollow cheeks in adults who are not pregnant, nursing, or allergic to lidocaine.

If you are allergic to lidocaine, let us know during your initial evaluation. Depending on the rest of your medical history, you may still be a good candidate for a Juvederm formulation that does not include lidocaine. Since the needles we use to administer the medication is so fine, there’s no need for a topical anesthetic that takes 15 to 60 minutes to take effect. It is even more comfortable than having your blood drawn for a medical test.

2. Efficacy

Your time is just about as important as your safety, so we have thoroughly researched all of the aesthetic treatments we offer to ensure they are the most effective for the job they were designed for. When it comes to augmenting the cheeks non-invasively, there is no anti-aging treatment more effective.

This injectable dermal filler is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a chemical compound that is found naturally throughout your body and in high concentrations in the supporting structures of your skin. This chemical compound plays an integral role in immediately volumizing your skin to re-contour your cheeks while your skin produces more collagen in response to the “micro-injury” that occurred at the point of injection.

3. Convenience

Again, we value your time and understand how important it is to you. Treatment with this injectable takes only around 10 minutes to complete. Before treatment, we will sanitize your cheeks, identify the appropriate injection points and depths based on the results you’re looking for, and then administer the medication. This takes mere minutes.

After your treatment is over, we will provide you with a comprehensive list of everything you should do and avoid to ensure the best results. However, because this is a non-invasive treatment, there’s not a lot you have to do to care for your skin after your session.

4. Minimal Preparation

Since this is a non-invasive treatment, there’s not a lot you need to do to prepare for your session, either. In fact, if we determine that this is the right anti-aging treatment for you, you may be able to receive your treatment on the same day as your consultation.

Ideally, to prepare for your treatment, you would eat a healthy meal before you come in and drink at least half a gallon of water on the day before and of your session. We also prefer that you come in without cosmetics, such as makeup and moisturizer, on your face.

5. Durability

Yet another incredibly compelling benefit of this treatment is its durability. A lot of cosmetic treatments only offer benefits that last around two to six months. This treatment offers results that usually last 18 months but can last two years if you take care of yourself. Furthermore, the final results of this treatment can last up to three years if you receive a follow-up treatment six months after your first one.

6. Accessibility

Due to the incredible safety of this convenient, durable treatment, nearly everyone is a candidate. However, it’s important to come in for an initial consultation to determine if this is the ideal treatment for you. It was designed to treat moderate-to-severe cases and may not be suitable for only mild cases of volume loss.

7. Instant Results

There’s no need to worry if you put off this treatment until the 11th hour. You will see the initial results of treatment immediately after treatment. Even better, there are no side effects, like redness, bruising, or swelling that you have to worry about.

You’re also free to wear makeup immediately after treatment. If you have an important event scheduled for the same evening as your treatment, nobody will know you received professional help to look so young and healthy.
