What is Voluma?
Most people define the signs of aging as wrinkles, folds, and lines. But over time, the cheeks can also flatten and sag and the cheekbones become less defined. This is caused by a loss of volume in the cheeks. Voluma® is a facial filler that adds volume to the cheeks and lifts and contours the cheek area. Historically, facelifts were the only way to enhance the cheek area. Voluma® provides a ‘lift’ without the surgery.
Voluma® is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps the skin retain moisture and appear younger. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it instantly boosts volume and makes you appear years younger. Voluma® is the only FDA-approved facial filler designed specifically to restore cheekbone definition and lost volume in the cheeks.
A Voluma® treatment takes less than 30 minutes. A needle will be used to inject the cheek area to distribute the Voluma® gel. Patients experience minimal pain but a topical anesthetic may be applied if you are concerned about pain. Side effects are minimal and can include bruising, redness, and swelling. Patients can return to normal activities immediately and there is no downtime. Results can last up to two years.
