Many people develop wrinkles and lose volume in their faces as they age. These changes can make people look less youthful and attractive than they really are. Fortunately, the medical professionals at Finesse Cosmetic Laser & Lipo Center in Waltham, MA can address these issues with Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Voluma. Read on to learn more about how these wonderful injectable treatments can smooth your wrinkles and restore lost volume to your face.
How Long Does It Take for Juvederm to Soften?
People love Juvederm because it offers a fast, efficient way to renew their skin and add volume to their faces. The injection process is quick and comfortable. After you receive your injection, you will immediately notice improvements in the targeted area. That said, this dermal filler takes a little time to soften after your treatment.
The Softening Process
After your medical provider injects the filler into your target area, the solution will move through your skin. The filler will smooth your wrinkles and improve your look immediately. Next, it will break down and move into your dermal tissue. Once the filler is in your dermal tissue, it will bind with water molecules in your skin. This process will hydrate your skin and enable the filler to achieve long-lasting results.
Your Ultimate Results
The filler can take several weeks to soften and settle into your skin. This means that patients won’t see the ultimate results of their treatment immediately. Although individual results will vary, many people achieve the full effect within two weeks after receiving their injections.
Enhancing Your Results
You can follow several steps to achieve optimal results and help your skin renew and heal. You should avoid engaging in strenuous exercise the day after you receive your injection. You should also avoid getting too much sun.
This is because the ultra-violet rays that the sun sends out may harm the hyaluronic acid in your fillers. You can reduce the sun’s harmful effects by wearing protective clothing and using high-quality sunscreen. You also should not drink wine, beer, or other alcoholic beverages during this time.
What Is Juvederm?
This injectable filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that hydrates and adds volume to your skin. It has a very long history. People have been using this dermal filler for over twenty years to heal wounds, treat arthritis, and help with eye procedures.
Today, people use this filler to enhance their appearance. This minimally invasive treatment can improve wrinkles and folds. It can also add volume to your skin and increase the size of your lips.
What Type of Injectable Treatment Is Right for Me?
Today, there are a wide variety of injectable treatments that can make people look more attractive and youthful. These injectable solutions contain different ingredients and formulas. These treatments have distinct benefits that allow people to enhance their skin in unique ways.
Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators. These injectables improve your appearance by interrupting the communication between your muscles and your nerves. This disruption will prevent your muscles from moving, which improves the look of your wrinkles.
Botox and Dysport are great at treating wrinkles that appear when your face is moving or you are making an expression. For instance, these injectables can improve crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.
This injectable is a dermal filler. Unlike Botox and Dysport, it does not alter the communication between your nerves and your muscles. Instead, it uses a hyaluronic acid solution to add volume and smooth the targeted area. Dermal fillers are fantastic at treating wrinkles that are visible when your face is not moving.
Today, there are many dermal fillers on the market, such as Voluma and Volbella, that are specifically designed to improve your appearance in unique ways. For instance, some dermal fillers are great at adding volume to your cheeks, while others can plump your lips and smooth your wrinkles.
Is Juvederm Voluma Right for Me?
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler. Allergan, the company that introduced Botox, released this filler to help people achieve more youthful-looking profiles. This is the first and only dermal filler that adds volume to your cheeks. It is very safe, and people all over the world have been using this filler for years.
Enhancing Your Cheeks
As people age, their bodies produce less collagen. This loss, along with other age-related changes, causes people to lose volume in their cheeks. Their cheeks may flatten, and their skin may sag. Scientists call this effect age-related midface volume loss.
This volume loss can make people look more tired and older than they really are. Voluma was developed to correct this issue. This filler can augment your cheeks and improve age-related volume loss.
Who Can Benefit
This product is perfect for healthy adults who want to reverse the volume loss that comes with age. That said, some people cannot use Voluma. Certain health conditions, such as a history of excessive scarring or pigmentation disorders, can affect your treatment.
During your consultation, we will examine your skin and discuss your medical history. We will use this information to determine what type of skincare treatments are right for you.
How It Works
This filler reverses the signs of aging by making your profile appear more vibrant and youthful. Your medical provider will begin the process by injecting this filler into your treatment area. The filler uses hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in your body, to add volume beneath the surface of your skin.
This additional volume will contour and lift your cheeks. The injectable also lifts lines, allowing your face to look smoother and more refreshed. The improvements are natural-looking and attractive.
Your Treatment Process
This treatment is quick and easy. Your medical provider will numb your target area with a topical anesthetic cream so you will be comfortable during the injection process. Next, they will use a small needle to inject the filler into your cheek.
The filler includes lidocaine, a topical anesthetic, to further enhance your comfort during this process. This process typically takes only about twenty to thirty minutes.
This treatment is easy, with minimal downtime for recovery. This is an out-patient treatment that doesn’t require you to stay in the hospital. You can immediately return to most of your normal activities after your treatment.
You need not feel nervous before your appointment. Dr. Peter Kruy has advanced training in injecting Voluma. He also has elite Platinum status in the Allergan Physician Network. He will use these skills to administer this injectable precisely and enable you to achieve a natural, rejuvenated appearance.
People love this filler because it lasts much longer than other injectable treatments. In clinical studies, most people had results that lasted for eighteen to twenty-four months. After this period, you can receive touch-up injections to maintain the benefits of your treatment.
During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that will allow you to achieve long-lasting results.
Is Juvederm Volbella Right for Me?
Volbella is a state-of-the-art dermal filler. This wonderful injectable can improve fine lines around your mouth. It can also add volume to your lips and mouth.
Enhancing Your Smile
Your body naturally produces ample amounts of collagen when you are young. As you age, your collagen levels decrease. This process weakens the soft tissues in your face, causing your lips to lose shape and volume.
This process may prevent you from feeling confident about your smile. Fortunately, you don’t have to accept these changes. Volbella is an innovative filler than can reverse the signs of aging and give you a youthful-looking, beautiful smile.
Who Can Benefit
Volbella is a safe, effective product. Most adults who are twenty-two or older can use this product. That said, this injectable is not for everyone. You will have a personalized consultation with one of our skilled professionals before your treatment session.
During this consultation, we will talk about your desired results and also discuss your medical history. We will use this information to determine whether Volbella is right for you.
How It Works
Volbella uses the power of hyaluronic acid to renew and rejuvenate your look. Once this filler is injected in your treatment area, it will smooth out and fill in your wrinkles. The solution can also plump up your lips, making them appear larger and fuller.
Volbella is a fantastic way to enhance your look. Clinical studies have proven that this injectable can improve the appearance of perioral rhytids. Perioral rhytids are fine lines and creases that appear around your mouth. They are sometimes called smoker’s lines and lipstick lines.
Besides smoothing your skin, this treatment allows people who have always wanted larger lips to achieve a fuller, more attractive smile. Although individual results will vary, many people’s results last for up to a year after they receive their treatments.
Volbella is a quick, minimally invasive way to enhance your appearance. You don’t have to visit the hospital or endure a lengthy period of recovery after you receive this injectable.

This treatment doesn’t require you to take time off from your busy schedule to recover. After receiving your injection, you can leave our office and return to your normal activities. That said, you must follow our aftercare instructions.
For instance, we will advise you not to apply makeup or engage in vigorous movements the day after you receive your injection. Following these instructions will help you achieve optimal results.
How Much Filler Will I Need to Achieve Optimal Results?
The amount of filler that we will use to improve your appearance will vary. The depth of your wrinkles, your age, and your desired results will affect the amount of filler that you need. For instance, one syringe of dermal filler may improve mild wrinkles. If your wrinkles are deeper, your medical provider may use more filler to address your lines.
