As you age, you may notice that you are losing volume in your face – especially your cheeks. This can be due to loss of elasticity in your skin, wrinkles, or weight loss. Luckily, there is a treatment that can give you a more full and youthful appearance – Voluma.
Voluma is a FDA approved treatment made from hyaluronic acid, which is the same material in your joints. Voluma is injected into the areas you want to appear fuller on your face and the results are instantaneous. Not only will these injections increase fullness in the areas you desire, they will also help with minor reshaping of your face as our Physicians can mold the injection to give you a more contoured appearance during your treatment. This contouring will provide you with what is sometimes called a “liquid facelift.”
Each treatment lasts up to 2 years and has little to no side effects. Before receiving a treatment, we will apply a numbing cream to help with any discomfort you may have. Voluma is already pre-mixed with lidocaine, to help reduce any discomfort you have during the injection. If you do have any side effects, they will be the same that you would have for any other filler – mild swelling, some bruising, and redness. Your treatment session will take up to an hour and requires no down time. If you have any allergies to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteints, you should not use Voluma.
Voluma has been in use for over 10 years and in 72 countries… this and the additional reasons list above are why we recommend Voluma as the best filler option for your cheek area.
