What is Voluma?
The skin can lose its volume and elasticity over time. Because of this, many women in Salt Lake City seek effective ways to regain the youthfulness of their skin. The dermal filler Juvederm Voluma can do this. Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid and is FDA-approved to treat certain signs of facial aging, such as loss of midface volume.
What makes Voluma different from other dermal fillers?
Due to aging, the midface, particularly the areas around the cheekbones, loses its volume and rapidly ages the appearance. In the past, surgery was used to address this condition by tightening the overlying skin and giving the face a “lifted” effect. However, today’s technology has made it possible to provide such “lift” without incisions and stitches.
Voluma is the first filler that is FDA-approved to restore the youthfulness of the face by providing volume to the cheeks. This dermal filler is unlike other dermal fillers since it is composed of hyaluronic acid that has been cross-linked with the Vycross process, giving the face an excellent lifting effect.
Who are ideal candidates for Voluma?
Anyone who is bothered with the loss of volume in their midface section can benefit from a Voluma treatment. This filler is also for individuals who have poorly defined cheekbones and want to add volume to this area. Those who are not good candidates for a surgical facelift may choose Voluma instead. Plus, individuals who are at risk for serious complications from anesthesia can opt for a Voluma treatment in lieu of surgery.
What happens during a Voluma session?
Your session is quick, lasting only 15 to 30 minutes. If you prefer, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the treatment sites prior to the injections. You can return to work or your normal routine immediately after your session.
What can I expect after a Voluma treatment?
You may experience some minor bruising and swelling following your treatment. It is easily managed, however. Results can be noticed immediately after the injections and may last up to two years. The duration of your results will depend on the extent of the treatment area as well as how fast your body breaks down the filler.
