As we age, the amount of fat in our face (that contributes so greatly to a youthful appearance) begins to dissipate. This natural occurrence can lead to sunken areas on the face, or sagging deflated-looking skin that makes us appear older than we are.
Juvederm Voluma consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally within the skin. This filler is injected deep beneath the skin. As a result, the dermal filler offers greater support and structure to overlying skin. Injecting Voluma can create a noticeably smoother appearance to the skin. Likewise, it provides lift and more substantial definition to the facial structure.
As the first and ONLY FDA-approved filler formulated specifically to add volume to the mid-face/cheek area. That is to say, it provides a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face lasting up to 2 years.
Voluma has very low hydrophilic properties, meaning it has a low rate of water absorption. To clarify, its low water absorbing properties are a critical feature to its success because the gel will not expand after injection, allowing for controlled and precise results.
Is it right for me?
Whether you were born with cheek bones you loved that have diminished over time, or if you want to have the cheek bones and definition you never had before but always longed for, Voluma can provide a solution.
Voluma is safe, affordable, and non-invasive. It is intended for a wide range of clients looking to achieve mid-face volume, or more prominent, sculpted cheekbones. For both men and women alike, with Voluma, you get immediate satisfaction with no downtime.
Administering the injections typically takes about 15-30 minutes. Once complete, results can be seen immediately. Unlike surgical options, Voluma has no downtime, which means patients are free to resume their normal life the moment they walk out of the office.
The common side effects are mild and include symptoms commonly found in the recovery process of minor surgery such as irritation, swelling, or redness at the injection site. For those looking to accelerate recovery from injectables, we highly recommend using Alastin’s INhance Post-Injection Serum, sold in office, to minimize bruising and swelling that may occur.
As with all hyaluronic acid fillers- this procedure is reversible, simply with the injection of a dissolving enzyme.
