WHY CHOOSE JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®
Allergan, the company that brought us Botox, now brings us the first FDA approved filler indicated to last up to two years. Voluma, a hyaluronic acid, or HA. is already approved in 72 countries, where doctors have found it works particularly well to restore and lift cheek skin that has lost contour through natural aging or weight loss. VOLUMA® was created to be smoother than other HA facial fillers, making it easier to inject during treatment and resulting in a smooth and natural look and feel.
HOW DOES VOLUMA WORK
One of the early signs of aging is volume loss in the face from a combination of fat and bone absorption. Cheeks flatten out, which results in sagging skin and hollowing that increases slowly over time. Voluma Gel, when administered correctly, not only fills the facial hallows and wrinkles of the skin, but, has the capacity to lift and contour the mid face.
Voluma is made from hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin, and cross-linked sugar chains. This material is used in other Juvederm products, but the chains in Juvederm Voluma are shorter, making the material lower in weight so that it has more lift. The particles are more uniform in size, and their oval shape make the substance easier to inject, lessening the chance of nodule formation. The increased cross-linking also makes the product last longer, with longer-lasting results.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM VOLUMA
Patients find injections to be fast, easy, and comfortable, without any downtime. The material injected expands and molds, bringing back the contours of the face which may have been lost over time. Voluma can last for two years—exceptional longevity for an HA—and something that makes it particularly appealing to patients who dislike returning for frequent refills
