Voluma is a new filler that recently acquired FDA approval in the United States for filling the cheek region. It is the first hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that has been authorized for this usage (other HA fillers include Perlane, Juvederm, Belotero, and Restylane, among others).
Instantly Add Volume
As people age, loss of fat in the face, as well as gravity and a decrease in the natural elasticity of the skin alter the appearance of the face. This could be partially due to a lack of hyaluronic acid, as the levels of this substance in the skin decreases over time with age. There are many cosmetic procedures that can be done to combat the appearance of this process, including dermal fillers such as this one. You can see the restoration of youthfulness caused by this facial filler before and after photos.
Voluma is the newest part of the Juvederm category of hyaluronic acid injectable fillers. It is commonly injected into the cheekbones and chin as well as the cheeks. Additionally, it is sometimes used to add definition to an individual’s jawline. These Facial Filler injections are able to restore the balance and youthful proportions to the patient’s face, as can be clearly seen in Juvederm Voluma before and after photos. The appearance after the procedure is significantly more youthful and softened, as indicated in many reviews.
Sessions for Voluma treatment are notably short. In just a few minutes, you will notice that your skin has a plumper appearance, and your face looks more youthful. You may wish to schedule more treatments in order to achieve the results you want, and the following treatments should likely take even less time and require less of the filler to be injected.
Voluma contains lidocaine to maximize your comfort as much as possible during the treatment, although you should be advised that comfort levels during the procedure vary between people. The results of a treatment session can last for up to a year and a half, though this length of time can vary from person to person.
The Voluma filler is different from other injectable gels, as it is used specifically mostly in the cheeks, while others focus on deep lines and wrinkles elsewhere on the face.
Who Should use Voluma?
Suitable candidates for this procedure are those who have experienced volume loss in the face due to aging, weight loss that has affected the skin, or medical problems that affect the symmetry or perkiness of the face. However, patients should discuss their suitability for the procedure with their physicians before deciding to have it done.
