Voluma® is a more viscous and thick hylauronic–acid filler product that is particularly used to restore lost volume, while providing more youthful contours to the face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body’s cells. This allows the cells to bind or hold water, and is responsible for maintaining tissue hydration. Over time the hyaluronic acid will slowly become absorbed, and will disappear gradually. Because this substance is found within the body, and is non–animal in origin, there is no need for preliminary allergy testing. This product is used to reduce the signs of aging as well as skin imperfections. Voluma® not only smoothes lines and wrinkles; it is also used to add volume such as in the temples and cheeks.
Although very tolerable, patients will sit with a topical numbing cream on for approximately 1 hour. Voluma® is then injected and sculpted along the facial contour, in order to correct the area of concern. The effects of Voluma® injections will be immediate and can last for approximately 1 year.
