What Can I Expect from Voluma Dermal Filler?

In a word, what you can expect from Voluma dermal filler is a transformation. Although similar in many ways to other products currently on the market, Voluma offers a whole new range of possibilities for patients who not only want to look younger, but also radically transform the contours of the face for the better. And the results are longer lasting than with similar dermal fillers.

Voluma was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration this past December for adding volume to the cheek area instantly. The benefits of this product are extensive. First, the addition of volume to the cheeks imparts impressive wrinkle reduction. As the cheeks plump up, the skin is drawn tighter about the nasolabial folds and along the jaw line. The result is smoother skin all around the lower third portion of your face.

The addition of volume to the cheeks has another benefit. As we age, the fat pads that give our faces their contour begin to diminish. Voluma can replace the volume lost from these fat pads. This gives your face the full, round cheeks associated with youth. In women especially, this contour is highly desirable. It can tone down the sharp edges that can make a woman’s face look older and more severe.

The results of Voluma can last between 18 and 24 months, although some people enjoy their new appearance for up to five years. This is the longest time period for any dermal filler of its kind. However, the effects have yet to be made permanent. This is because Voluma has a hyaluronic acid base. This substance, found in natural, healthy skin, can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Although it degrades on its own over time, the formula used in Voluma creates longer lasting results than any other hyaluronic acid filler on the market.

Voluma goes to work deep within your facial tissues, bypassing the blood vessels and nerve endings closer to the surface. This means less pain and bruising for you. All these benefits can be obtained through one easy treatment.
