What You Need to Know About Voluma
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. As we age, essential building blocks such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid decrease in production, causing the loss of facial volume and skin elasticity. This can lead to visible lines, wrinkles, creases, and in the cheek area, it can cause skin sagging. Understanding the aging and healing process of your skin can help you to combat visible signs of aging without compromising your natural appearance. Although there are many dermal fillers on the market in Hudson that can restore facial fullness and volume, Juvederm Voluma® was the first FDA-approved filler that was specially formulated to enhance the cheeks while gently lifting the jowls to reveal a smoother jawline.
What is Voluma®?
As the winner of the 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award, Voluma® is a dermal filler from the Juvederm® family containing hyaluronic acid, a component made by the body naturally. Hyaluronic acid maintains the skin’s elasticity, strength, and moisture levels. By restoring hyaluronic acid, this helps to add volume and structure to your cheeks, restoring a youthful contour and shape to your face. It is the first injectable of its kind to non-surgically restore volume loss in the cheeks.
In-office injections at our Hudson office typically take just minutes to perform, sometimes longer depending on the extent of treatment. Voluma® comes pre-mixed with lidocaine for patient comfort. Lidocaine will help to numb the area during and after the injections. The number of injections each patient may need depends on the amount of volume loss.
