Wrinkles and lines are not the only sign of aging. Your skin on your face can begin to sag as well as your cheeks losing volume. Voluma is a great solution to this. The treatment is used to add volume in your face as well as create a beautiful contour.
What is Voluma?
Voluma is a smooth non -surgical filler in the Juvederm family of injectable fillers. Voluma is the first FDA approved injectable gel used to add volume beneath the skin.
This dermal filler is specially formulated to restore cheek volume, giving gaunt cheeks a more youthful appearance. It is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally found in the body. HA bonds with water molecules in order to create volume and plumpness.
The body’s supply of hyaluronic acid naturally declines over time as a result of environmental factors and the aging process. This results in a thinning of the skin tissues and an older appearance. Voluma supplements the body’s HA supply, restoring the appearance of the skin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your cheeks have a gaunt or hollow appearance and you are not interested in going under the knife, Voluma may be an ideal treatment option for you. The best candidates for Voluma treatment have realistic expectations in terms of results. They also do not have active skin infections in the cheek area.
WHAT IS The Treatment Process Like?
Voluma treatment is a very simple process and usually take 45 minutes to an hour. The cheeks are cleansed of any products, and then marks are made as a guide. Injections of Voluma are carefully delivered to the marked regions.
Juvederm Voluma injections are quite deep, which results in more-effective results. The product contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic designed to numb the area into which it is administered. This is especially helpful for deeper injections and creates a more comfortable treatment process for the patient.
WHAT IS Voluma Aftercare Like?
Once the treatment session is complete, you will be able to return to your daily schedule without any need for downtime or recovery time. Many patients go right back to work after their Voluma session.
There may be a small degree of swelling, redness, and/or bruising in the cheeks, but these issues will only be temporary. To avoid exacerbating them, do not drink alcohol or stay out in the sun for a prolonged period. Sunscreen is recommended. Ice packs can be used to bring down any swelling.
How long does it last?
Voluma gives instant results. Because the hyaluronic acid in this filler is cross-linked, it takes more time to be gradually and safely absorbed into the system and offers results that can last up to 2 years. This is longer than many other fillers on the market. Touch-ups are also available.
HOW Much Does VOLUMA Cost?
The price of Juvederm Voluma is different from med spa to med spa. Cost also varies depending on the number of injections and treatment sessions required to achieve your results.
