Sagging skin (volume loss and elasticity) is probably a major part of aging that most of us would wish to avoid. And why not? Apart from causing more lines and wrinkles, this can also change the shape of the face, contributing to a loss of definition around the chin and jawline area.
While it is true that genetics determine our face shape, aging and other factors can also change this. Facial fat, for the most part, tends to descend southward or to the lower part of the face due to gravity and aging of the structures. This can then elongate the face and make it prone to sagging and wrinkling.
A stronger jawline or a more angular chin is considered more attractive and youthful. This is why having a receding chin or a less defined one is something that most people want to change. Fortunately, it is now possible with Juvederm Volux, an injectable treatment that can give you a sculpted jawline without going under the knife.
Read on and find out what this facial filler can offer.
What is Juvederm Volux?
Juvederm Volux is an innovative injectable treatment that is intended to restore and create volume on the face. It is a structural filler, containing 25mg of a manufactured form of hyaluronic acid (HA) and has been shown to be effective in the chin and jawline.
Juvederm Volux is created by Allergan, the company behind Botox. It now joins the Juvederm range of gel dermal fillers that can improve the signs of aging.
What makes Juvederm Volux different?
- For shaping and sculpting – Volux has the highest elasticity and cohesively of all VYCROSS products. This allows the aesthetic doctor to sculpt and mold the fillers into the desired shape.
- Natural-looking results – These facial fillers contain a manufactured form of HA, which may help reduce signs of aging. This can moisturize the skin and help return its tone and elasticity, while delivering natural looking results
- Improved patient comfort – Juvederm Volux contains 0.3% lidocaine hydrochloride that can help minimize pain and improve injection comfort. Studies have shown that recovery time was minimal.
What are the results?
With Volux chin filler, you can expect a more defined, sculpted chin and jawline, with effects lasting up to 18 to 24 months. There are cases where you may notice immediate signs of improvement, with best results showing within a couple of weeks or treatment.
Do take note that other patients may require more than one treatment to get the desired look. This will be further discussed during your consultation. A skilled aesthetic doctor can also explain what you can expect from the treatment.
Is Juvederm Volux right for you?
This injectable is ideal if you are concerned with the shape of your jawline and chin or want to add definition and structure to the area. A consultation with an aesthetic doctor can determine if Volux is right for you or if you can benefit from other type of facial fillers.
