As we age, we naturally lose volume in our skin. When this happens, your skin can start to sag, which can lead to an aged appearance. One of the ways to fight this process is with Voluma.
Voluma is part of a line of hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers are injected into the skin, adding volume to problematic areas of the body. To work effectively, Voluma must be injected into the deep tissue, where it can add the support needed to lift the outer layers of the skin. Other cosmetic fillers have a more limited impact, essentially only smoothing wrinkles. With Voluma, however, the end result is smoother skin that has added fullness as well.
In particular, Voluma has been used with great success in areas of the face. This includes the cheeks and chin. In fact, for many patients, Voluma has an effect similar to that of a lower facelift or a cheek augmentation, depending on where the fillers are injected. In some cases, Voluma has been used on the neck to provide additional fullness.
Results from any injectable filler will vary from patient to patient. However, some studies have shown that Voluma injections can retain results for up to two years. The procedure can be completed in around 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area.
There are many people who would benefit from Voluma. It is a popular choice for those who want to combat the signs of aging, but it has also been used to help patients with other conditions that lead to volume loss in the face. If you are interested in trying Voluma, you should discuss the procedure with our injection specialists in order to understand the risks and benefits of this filler, how much you’ll need, and how long to expect the results to last.
