What is Voluma®?
Voluma® is an injectable that is a simple way to add volume and definition to the midface cheek area. While the cheeks are often overlooked by other cosmetic treatments, a loss of volume in this area can make a person look older and less healthy than they actually are. By adding extra definition to the midface area, Voluma® corrects surrounding wrinkles and fine lines in a subtle, natural-looking manner. This treatment is ideal for patients who want to rejuvenate their facial features to maintain or get back that natural lift and contour.
How Does it Work?
Voluma® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. It infuses the cheeks with extra volume and fullness, effectively lifting and contouring them after injection.
Over time, the hyaluronic acid also stimulates the creation of collagen, an essential structural protein within the skin that is responsible for its tightness and fullness. This additional collagen helps correct wrinkles and fine lines in the area long after the initial hyaluronic acid solution has been flushed from the body, bringing patients results that are FDA-approved to last for up to two years after a single injection session.
What is a Voluma® Treatment Like?
Each Voluma® session takes about 15 minutes to complete and brings patients little to no downtime. While side effects like tenderness, swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and discoloration at the injection site are common, these usually subside within a few days of treatment. In the months after a patient’s initial injections, they will gradually begin to see the skin in their cheeks gain extra fullness and volume. The full results of a Voluma® treatment become visible directly after treatment. At this time, patients usually report looking five years younger than they did before undergoing treatment.
If you’ve been searching for a simple way to add volume to your midfacial area, Voluma® might be your ideal cosmetic solution.
