Lost facial volume is a common sign of aging. Though it may not be the first sign that comes to mind, it can definitely have an impact on the look of your face. Loss of fullness, particularly in the cheek area, can make your face appear gaunt and sunken in. It can also cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear more noticeable. You don’t have to simply accept the hand that time and genetics have dealt you.
Voluma®, an injectable gel, is FDA-approved to restore lost volume to your cheeks, giving you back your youthful appearance. Voluma® is a convenient treatment that offers instant results with no downtime required. If you have been looking for a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your cheeks, we encourage you to learn more information about this injectable.
How It Works
The main ingredient in this product is a form of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the body and is important for healthy skin. Hyaluronic acid gives skin its suppleness. As we age, hyaluronic acid gradually diminishes. Skin begins to lose volume and sag, causing wrinkles and fine lines to look more pronounced.
With this treatment, the Voluma® solution is skillfully injected into the cheek area. The solution contains lidocaine, a numbing agent used to reduce discomfort. The treatment takes only minutes to perform and is done in the comfort of our office.
You will see immediate results with increased volume in the cheeks and a more contoured, defined look. There is no recovery period necessary, and you can return to your regular routine immediately. The results of this treatment can last for up to two years. Follow-up treatments are encouraged to maintain your results.
Side effects don’t often occur with Voluma®. Mild effects such as redness and tenderness of the skin at the injection site are possible, but they shouldn’t last long. Voluma® is a safe and reliable treatment option to restore lost facial volume.
