Dr. James F. Boynton discusses the various benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA for the treatment of age-related volume loss in the cheeks and midface.
Houston, TX — Dermal fillers and injectables can be excellent options for many patients who are interested in facial rejuvenation but do not yet require and/or desire cosmetic surgery, states Houston plastic surgeon James F. Boynton, MD. For individuals specifically seeking to restore midfacial volume loss, Dr. Boynton says he can choose from a variety of injectable treatments available at his practice, though he is particularly excited about a relatively new addition to his dermal filler armamentarium: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™.
According to the Houston plastic surgeon, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is currently the sole hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for volume enhancement of the midfacial region in patients 21 and older. In addition to augmenting the cheeks and midface, Dr. Boynton notes that other key benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ include its ability to diminish fine lines and wrinkles in the targeted treatment area, as well as results that appear instantaneously with treatment. Furthermore, he notes that the filler’s volumizing effects have proven to last up to two years in many instances, much longer than other injectable alternatives.
Regarding the actual procedure, Dr. Boynton says JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ can be administered in his office, and allergy testing is typically not required due to the solution’s hyaluronic acid composition. Depending on the unique needs of the patient, he explains, treatment generally takes approximately 30 minutes, and most people are able to return to their daily routines almost immediately. Some swelling and/or bruising is possible, he adds, but these side effects can typically be diminished with the on-and-off application of ice.
Though JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ is a minimally invasive treatment, Dr. Boynton ultimately notes that injections should be performed by an experienced and qualified practitioner. “Be it surgical or non-surgical, consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon for any type of cosmetic enhancement can help ensure you receive the safest, most effective care and results.”
