What Type of Injections Can Help?
One very special type of injection that can help your skin regain its hydration, smoothness, and elasticity is Juvederm Volite. Juvederm Volite is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel that aims at moisturizing your skin, improving elasticity, and increasing collagen production. It is different from other types of injectibles that often only aim to fill wrinkles. It can hydrate skin because hyaluronic acid has a very high water-binding capacity and it is able to improve skin’s elasticity because it also stimulates the production of collagen. Just one treatment can improve your skin’s health for nine months.
What Are the Treatments Like?
The Juvederm Volite treatment consists of a series of tiny injections in the area that is being treated. The injections take approximately 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Preparing for the treatment takes an additional 45-60 minutes because a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area and then cleansed before the injections are done. When the treatment is completed, it is not uncommon to have small raised bumps where the injections were given, but these will disappear in a few hours after the procedure. Patients are advised to refrain from using make up for 12 hours and to avoid exercise for the first 2 days after the treatment. Results will begin to appear within two weeks of the treatment and the patient’s skin will be smoother and healthier looking for up to nine months afterward.
