Juvederm Voluma XC Client Testimonial Estelle



Every month we highlight a client testimonial to show you what an anti aging treatment is like. This month, we are featuring Juvederm Voluma XC, and our client, a beautiful dancer named Estelle.  Estelle had her first Voluma treatment 3 months ago.  We asked her to tell us a little bit about herself and what made her decide to try Voluma. Here is her story.

Juvederm Voluma XC Client Testimonial Estelle

Standing at 6 feet tall barefoot, I am pretty lanky with a very low body fat.  The shape of my face is oblong, and when I smiled, my cheeks did not round but rather had an indent, or depression. In my teenage and young adult years, I styled my hair and makeup to create the illusion of a fuller face.  But now, at 39, I feel confident, beautiful, and am content without fussing over my makeup and hair.  I’m pretty low maintenance and like my hair up in a high messy bun and no longer wear makeup except for when I’m performing.

When I turned 39, I found my cheeks and temples started to look hollow, making my face appear even thinner, sunken in, and tired. Basically, I was not looking as good as I felt: the time had come to find a real solution.  I’ve been told I have fine features and I have high cheekbones. So while I was not looking to enhance my cheekbones, I wanted to add volume to the apples of my cheeks.

The Research

I did my research and discovered hyaluronic dermal fillers were the best option to combat my facial fat loss. I found out hyaluronic acid is something our bodies naturally produce but we lose it as we age.  This sounded good to me – I’m a pretty natural person and I like that my body will not have a foreign, unnatural substance injected into it.  Voluma is FDA approved and created by Allergan, the maker of Botox and Juvederm. Since I have had Botox before, I felt confident in the Allergan brand.

After my research, I decided to make a few calls to compare prices on Voluma.  Most of the doctor’s offices I called charge over $1000 per syringe.  But when I called National Laser Institute, I received a quote for only $549 per syringe!  I did the math and found Voluma would be less expensive than other fillers, as Voluma lasts for 2 years, and I would not need touch ups every 3 months like with Botox.  This sounded pretty low maintenance to me – and I liked that, so I scheduled my appointment at National Laser Institute.

The Treatment

When I arrived for my appointment, the doctor drew lines on both sides of my face:  one from the corner of my mouth to the corner of my eye, and then one from my nostril to my ear.  I like to keep things as natural as possible so I opted out for any topical numbing cream.  The doctor injected the hollows of my cheeks with Voluma.  I was relieved the treatment was not painful and I easily tolerated it without ice or numbing.

The Results

I noticed the results instantly and they actually softened a little bit over the following 2 weeks.  The area of the injections felt tender the next day but I had no bruising. I am super happy with the results and I feel refreshed and natural!  My cheeks have been lifted and when I smile, the apples of my cheeks now appear youthful and rounded, and not sunken and hollow.
