Voluma is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel and belongs to the Juvederm family.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body that has an important role in the maintenance of skin volume and hydration, joint lubrication and cushioning, as well as eye volume and shape.
It’s incredibly hydrophilic and retains water, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight, therefore adds volume to skin.
Hyaluronic acid also binds with elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to them, which provides elasticity, structure, and volume to the skin. With aging, skin looses it’s elasticity and volume which leads to a saggy appearance.
Voluma is primarily used for instantly replenishing the lost volume in the cheek area. It restores the facial contour and provides a subtle lift, therefore giving you a youthful appearance.
Voluma lasts up to 2 years – longer than other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
The combination of neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) with hyaluronic acid containing injectables prolongs the positive rejuvenating effect.
The incidence of side effects of hyaluronic acid containing dermal fillers is low and can be reversed by an injectable enzyme, which immediately reverses the negative effects.
There are, of course, some instances when the use of Voluma is contraindicated.
Consultation with an experienced, licensed professional will help you understand whether injections with Voluma will be an efficient and safe treatment option for you.
