Juvederm Voluma is a one-of-a-kind volumizing filler. Voluma is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift. Voluma can be used to add volume to the cheeks, temples, and around the eyes, is one of today’s most effective injectable fillers, and is clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid, a material found naturally in our skin. Hyaluronic acid binds water to cells, helping skin maintain its plump appearance. As the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases with age, our skin begins to look saggy and thin. Many people find their faces take on a hollow look as they age. Dermal fillers replace some of the lost hyaluronic acid to help restore a youthful-looking appearance. Voluma lifts and contours the cheeks, giving the face a plumper, more youthful look.
How Do You Know Voluma Is Right For You
It is normal to feel distress as your body ages and changes. Many people look in the mirror and wish they saw the same face they saw 10 or 20 years ago before aging began to take its toll. Luckily, there are safe changes you can make that restore the youthful appearance you once knew so well.
Anyone interested in restoring the full look of a younger face is an ideal candidate for Voluma. It is a non-surgical option that produces natural looking results. For those who want a more dramatic change, Voluma can be used in conjunction with plastic surgery.
Most Juvederma patients are middle-aged, but the treatment works well for younger and older patients, too. Younger patients might require less filler than middle-aged and older patients, but all are typically happy with the results of the treatment. Ourboard-certified dermatologists, serving the Lancaster and Harrisburg, PA area, have extensive experience with fillers and can guide you towards the most effective treatment.
What Should You Know About Voluma?
Voluma injections are pain-free. Topical numbing cream is applied prior to injection for patients concerned about pain associated with the injection. Voluma also contains lidocaine, which acts as a numbing agent during the injection. Our patients report they feel comfortable during the injection process, as well as in the minutes, hours, and days after the injection procedure.
Voluma is long-lasting. Unlike other injectable fillers, Voluma results can last as long as two years. The results are natural looking and create a more youthful facial appearance, more so than many other injectable fillers that target only lines and wrinkles. Though Voluma is not permanent, patients do have the option of returning for touchups as needed.
Voluma is the only FDA approved filler designed to add volume in the cheek area. Voluma is injected deep into the skin and it helps fill out the hollow-looking areas on the face and provide a subtle lift. Voluma is not designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, but it can be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers to target these problems.
Voluma produces only mild side effects for most patients. These include redness, itching, swelling, and slight bruising. In most cases, the side effects last only a few days. Most patients are able to return to their normal schedule of activities immediately following treatment.
Voluma injections should be administered by a Board Certified Dermatologist. The physicians at Dermatology Physicians have extensive experience with Voluma and other fillers.
