Defining Beauty From Within
Voluma is the latest addition to the Juvederm line of dermal fillers. Voluma instantly restores fullness while providing patients with the most natural contouring of their faces. With results lasting upwards of two years, Voluma is one of the longest lasting dermal fillers currently on the market. Given its longevity and ability to restore a more youthful appearance, Voluma is quickly becoming a favorite among our patients.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps our skin retain its fullness and elasticity. As we get older, the level of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, causing our skin to sag, droop, and wrinkle. Voluma dermal filler helps to restore your skin’s fullness and vitality by boosting hyaluronic acid levels. Voluma is a non animal based product that carries virtually no risk of allergic reaction, making it an excellent choice for facial rejuvenation. In addition, the gel-like consistency of Voluma maximizes fullness while giving you the most natural appearance.
Voluma differs from other fillers in that it has a much lower incidence of adverse side effects. The likelihood of nodule formation at the injection site is considerably lower when compared to other volumizing fillers.
In the unlikely event of an adverse reaction after undergoing Voluma injections, the product is easily dissolved with an injection of hyaluronidase. This enzyme does not pose a threat to your own natural hylauronic acid or surrounding tissues.
Advantages of Voluma
Not only does Voluma have outstanding longevity, but it also gives you a natural-feeling and natural-appearing result with no downtime. Voluma is a robust filler that holds its shape more effectively than other dermal fillers, making it the premium choice for replenishing lost volume in the midface region. To date, no other dermal filler provides the same result while maintaining a soft and natural feeling like Voluma.
How is the procedure performed?
After examining your skin, one of our doctors will clean your face with an antiseptic solution and apply a topical numbing agent. After allowing the topical anaesthetic to take effect, they will inject Voluma into the marked treatment areas using a very fine needle to help minimize discomfort. This also helps to decrease the risk of bruising and swelling. After the injection, they may massage the treatment sites to ensure the product is evenly distributed to provide you with the most natural results. Ice packs will then be applied to your face to reduce inflammation. Immediately following the procedure, you are able to return to normal activities. Any visible effects such as swelling, bruising or discoloration can be concealed with makeup.
