New Juvéderm Volux Firms & Defines Sagging Jaw
A sagging or drooping jaw, neck or “jowls” adds years to a person’s appearance. For this reason, treatments for the lower face, neck and jawline are among the most commonly requested aesthetic procedures at AMAE Med Spa and Plastic Surgery in the Troy, MI area.
Until recently, the only way to tighten sagging jowls was with a surgical facelift or neck lift. And while facelift or neck lift surgery is highly effective at taking years off of the face, many people are unwilling or unable to undergo surgery with it’s lengthy downtime. More recently, AMAE Med Spa and Plastic Surgery in the Troy, MI area has added state-of-the-art nonsurgical laser and radiofrequency skin tightening treatments to achieve jaw defining results without the downtime of surgery.
But earlier this year Allergan, the makers of Juvéderm, announced that a new dermal filler formula specifically designed for jawlines received FDA approval. Juvéderm Volux is a highly effective jawline filler that can immediately create a more defined chin and less saggy neck with a just few injections – all without surgery, and with no downtime.
Like popular Juvéderm Vollure and Voluma, Volux – Volux is part of the Juvéderm ‘Vycross’ family of hyaluronic dermal fillers. Volux is so promising that it recently won New Treatment of the Year at the Global My-Face-My-Body Awards.
In this article the facial filler experts at AMAE Med Spa and Plastic Surgery in the Troy, MI area explain everything you need to know about the new Juvéderm Volux jaw filler.
Juvéderm Volux for a Defined, Firm Chin
Over the past 10 years, facial fillers have improved dramatically in their formulations and their versatility. Originally, dermal fillers were only used to fill fine lines and wrinkles. But the new generation of dermal fillers – including Volux – actually build up and restore the face’s structure and foundation.
Juvéderm Volux has a formula with a thick consistency that can be used not only to “fill” but to shape and contour. When injected by Dr. Ali or one of our skilled nurse-injectors, Volux facial filler is a fast and safe procedure, that yields immediate results. And, in addition to increasing definition of the jaw, Volux can decrease the appearance of sagging skin in the jaw, chin, and upper neck area.
Some people have genetically “weak chins” or receding jawlines. However, as many people get older, they lose subcutaneous fat (padding under the skin) as well as bone and muscle mass in the jaw. And, to make matters worse, as one ages skin in the face also loses its elasticity and begins to sag in the lower face causing ‘jowls’.
Fortunately, Juvéderm Volux provides an effective and long-lasting solution to sagging jawlines and jowls.
How Juvéderm Volux Defines Jawlines
Juvéderm Volux was created specifically for firming and defining the jawline and chin. It is a much thicker and concentrated hyaluronic acid formula than the thinner Juvéderm formulations that are injected into fine lines. Upon injection, Volux “sets” to replicate both the look and the feel of bone.
Juvéderm Volux for Men
A strong, square jawline has always considered the ideal for a masculine appearance. Volux provides men with a save treatment for achieving a stronger, more square and more pronounced jawline – without surgery.
In recent years, more and more men are turning to cosmetic treatments to look younger and more attractive. Volux is an easy, affordable procedure that offers immediate and long lasting results for men who wish to achieve a striking and strong jawline. And because Juvéderm in a very thick filler formula it is quite long-lasting – with visible results that may last a year or longer.
Juvéderm Volux Jaw Filler for Women
The female ideal is typically sculpted, angular features – including a defined jawline. Celebrities from actress Angelina Jolie to super model Kate Moss are examples of female beauty and attractiveness with lovely firm chins.
By adding Volux to the chin and jaw it helps “pulls up” sagging skin to restore what age, time, heredity, and gravity have damaged.
Combining Juvéderm Volux with Other Treatments
Underneath the chin the face has pads of fat cells, that are called submental fat. Volux can be combined with our fat loss treatments – including Liposuction, CoolSculpting or Kybella – to reduce or remove unwanted fat in the chin area. Volux can also be combined with our advanced skin tightening treatments – such as Morpheus8 RF Microneedling or Co2RE.
A combination of cosmetic procedures can be used to remove a “double chin”, firm sagging skin, and strengthen and define the appearance of the jawline with Volux.
