Contest Winner’s Results
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Dr. Anita Saluja is the first physician in Brevard County to offer this injectable treatment and she gave away a treatment to one lucky reader!
As people age, the cheek area loses volume, making the cheeks flatten out and the skin droop and sag. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the latest filler approved by the FDA and the first and only filler approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in adults. It instantly provides smooth, natural-looking results that last up to two years.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to gently lift the skin. It temporarily corrects age-related volume loss in the cheek area helps create a more youthful appearance to the face. Juvéderm Voluma XC works instantly to provide visible results providing volume to the cheek area and giving a more youthful appearance to the face. The results are natural-looking and long-lasting — up to two years with optimal treatment. (Patients may require a touch-up treatment after their initial treatment to achieve optimal results.)
Heath First Dermatology’s Dr. Anita Saluja is the first physician in Brevard County to offer this injectable treatment to patients.
“I use Radiesse, Sculptra, or Juvéderm Voluma to help achieve this and the decision of which to use can be decided at a consult visit as there are pros and cons to each type of injectable filler,” Dr. Saluja said. “An appointment is usually 30 minutes and recovery is minimal – there can be bruising and swelling for a week but there are no lifestyle or skin care restrictions the day after treatment.”
One SpaceCoast Living reader won the opportunity to experience the Voluma treatment! Anita Uhrmann was the lucky winner and received the treatment just in time for her birthday.
“I’m a Realtor and looking my best is important,” Anita said. “Dr. Saluja helped me to do just that! She and her staff were very friendly and explained what they were going to do along the way.”
The treatment is a non-surgical option that requires relatively little recovery or downtime, yielding instant results patients can see before they leave the physician’s office. Juvéderm Voluma XC contains a small amount of lidocaine which helps to numb the treatment area during the injection procedure.
“I really enjoy doing cheek enhancements with injectables such as Voluma because as we age, that is one of the first areas on the face to lose volume, and, often, my patients don’t realize the loss of cheek contour is what is causing a tired look or their nasolabial folds or under eye area to look more prominent,” Dr. Saluja explained. “This is a subtle correction, a subtle lift to the face, and so the effect looks very natural, also.”
