Reviews for the Juv?derm Voluma filler report on its effectiveness, side effects and cost, according to Skin by Lovely and Paula's Choice. Every type of filler has pros and cons, and a qualified dermatologist can recommend the best filler for each individual, notes Paula's Choice.
Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved type of gel that is injected into the skin to smooth out creases and fine lines and is specifically designed to add volume to cheeks, states Skin by Lovely. A person who receives the injections can resume normal activity within 24 hours of the treatment, and results can last for up to two years. People are generally happy with the results, especially if they worked with an experienced injector. The price of the treatment varies by location and patient needs, but medical spas typically offer payment plans. Compared to other dermal fillers, Juvederm Voluma can last twice as long, which reduces total cost.
Side effects of the injections are rare, but can include bruising and swelling at the injection site, explains Skin by Lovely. People can also have allergic reactions to some ingredients, but side effects generally last for a short period of time. Other risks of the treatment include longevity, risk of migration and lumping, and the skill of the injector, notes Paula's choice. To avoid such risks, one should work with a doctor who has extensive experience with multiple fillers. Daily use of good skin-care products and sunscreen increases the effectiveness of all cosmetic treatments as well.
