What is Voluma?
As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. VOLUMA® is the first FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. The filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body and resorbed over time.
Voluma treatments are only available through healthcare professionals who are trained and experienced in dermal filler injections. The treatments are given in an office setting, where a very fine needle is guided down to the cheek bone where it is deposited. There, the filler works like a sponge within the skin, where it also absorbs water, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Voluma contains a pain-numbing lidocaine anesthetic, which keeps patient discomfort at a minimum. In most cases, Voluma treatments are performed in just minutes and require little or no down time, although bruising may occur no matter how experienced the injector. Cosmetic results are instantaneous, and the younger appearance achieved in a single Voluma treatment can last up to TWO years, after which time the body safely absorbs the biocompatible filler.
Is Voluma Right for You?
All Voluma injections are non-surgical and tailored to each patient’s needs and desired results. Even if you are a person with darker skin pigment, the FDA considers Voluma to be a safe and effective way of improving the cosmetic appearance of smile lines without increasing the risk of hyper-pigmentation, keloid, or hypertrophic scarring.
Voluma is the number one dermal filler in the United States today, but only a healthcare professional experienced in dermal fillers can determine whether Voluma is right for you. Individual Voluma results will vary from patient to patient, so a one-on-one consultation can give you a better understanding of the type of results you can expect following a treatment.
