Enhance Your Cheeks with Youthful Volume with Voluma
The aging process affects all parts of the body, with some ways being more obvious than others. Environmental stressors and age begin to outpace collagen and elastin production, wrinkles and creases become more prominent. The diminished facial volume also means sinking, sagging skin, which can further prematurely age an individual.
Rather than turning to dramatic facial lifts or giving up on your appearance altogether, non-surgical Juvéderm® Voluma might be the solution you’re looking for.
What is Voluma?
As we age, skin loses its ability to produce collagen at the same rates that it can when we’re younger. Combined with diminished elasticity, or ability to return to a smooth, taut position, it is not uncommon for older patients to start noticing their cheeks look deflated or saggy. Unlike other fine lines and wrinkles, the cheeks and midface require a more substantial form of injectable or implant in order to completely lift sinking skin.
Juvéderm® Voluma is an FDA-approved facial filler designed to specifically lift, volumize and contour the midface. Like other Juvéderm® products, this dermal filler is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring compound that helps skin cells retain moisture and volume. The difference Voluma offers comes from its formula’s consistency and depth at which the filler is applied. While other volumizing injectables are usually applied right below the skin’s surface, Voluma is injected deeper into skin. This ensures better lift for tissue across the middle of the face.
Another important difference between Voluma and other dermal fillers is the filler consistency. While most dermal fillers take a gel-like consistency, Voluma is designed to be more viscous, ensuring patients achieve a subtle lift from within.
Why we love Voluma
When it comes to facial rejuvenation and volume restoration, patients have a wealth of options to chose from. For patients looking to lift and refresh their overall appearance without turning to extensive surgery, there are a few important reasons why our New Orleans team recommends Voluma.
Unlike other dermal fillers used for restoring volume, Voluma was specifically developed to tackle sinking cheekbones. As a result, the formula is designed differently than other fillers to ensure optimal, long-lasting results that appear as natural as possible.
No-Fuss Treatment and Recovery
While surgical lifts are shown to provide the best long-term results for sagging facial features, not every patient is ready for or needs surgery to improve their appearance. Voluma offers a much less invasive alternative that provides immediate results and requires significantly less treatment time. Furthermore, there is virtually no recovery required for Voluma patients. Following treatment, most patients can get back to their daily routine without interruption.
In addition to being developed for specific facial regions, Voluma was made to provide long-lasting results. Patients who opt for this injectable have enjoyed their results for anywhere from nine months to nearly two years.
