Every year, people spend millions of dollars on various skincare and beauty products designed to firm and plump the skin. These products always promise drastic, long-lasting results, but rarely do they deliver. Fortunately, a growing number of people have discovered a way to enjoy a more permanent outcome.
Voluma belongs to the JuveDerm family of injectable fillers. It is most commonly used in the cheek area as a way to add volume and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Over time due to the aging process, the cheeks begin to flatten and may start to sag, which also causes the lines around the nose and mouth (known as “nasolabial folds’) to become more visible.
Voluma works to correct volume loss and create lifting and contouring of the face.
How does it work?
Voluma is comprised of hyaluronic acid gel and lidocaine, which acts as a numbing agent to make the injecting process more tolerable.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule already found in the human body that absorbs, holds, and retains moisture. When injected into targeted areas of the cheeks, it plumps the skin from underneath, resulting in a natural, but noticeably more contoured appearance.
How long does it last?
Most clients report seeing an immediate difference in the suppleness of their skin following the procedure, but it can take up to two weeks to achieve final results. The benefits of Voluma last for up to 2 years, after which touch-ups are highly recommended to maintain an optimal outcome.
