What is Voluma?
Voluma is our most popular dermal filler. Dermal fillers such as Voluma are used to restore volume and fill in wrinkles and folds in your skin and can be used in various places on your face and body. The active ingredient in Voluma is called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that’s naturally found in your skin. Hyaluronic acid works by bringing water into the area to restore volume. There are a couple of unique features about Voluma which make it so great. First, Voluma has a high level of hyaluronic acid in it. This means it brings a lot of water into the area, making it perfect for places that need structural enhancement. Second, Voluma uses a special technology called Vycross. This has to do with the chemistry of the product, but it’s a feature that allows Voluma to last longer than any other hyaluronic acid filler available in the United States. Voluma can last up to two years!
Where can Voluma be used?
Voluma can be used in many different places. Voluma was first approved in the United States to enhance the cheeks. This is a popular treatment because it addresses many concerns. First, the bony structure of your cheeks and the overlying fat move down and in over time, making you lose the youthful apple of your cheek. Placing Voluma in your cheeks can restore the apple of your cheeks. It can be used to project your cheeks outward, forward, or both. Also, volumizing this area provides support for the under-eye area. Most people notice an improvement in the dark circles under their eyes after a Voluma treatment in their cheeks. Also, Voluma will lift your lower face so you’ll see improvement in your smile lines (also called nasolabial folds). The lift will also improve your jawline definition and the appearance of jowls. Voluma can also be used in the outer cheeks in front of your ears. This will help pull your lower face back to address marionette lines, those pesky lines that go from the corners of your mouth to your jawline.
Voluma has also been approved to improve the appearance of your chin and jawline. This is perfect for you if you have a weak chin or if you feel like your lower face blends in with your neck. Voluma will help define your jawline, making you look younger. In terms of the chin, Voluma can be used to reshape it, to make it wider or narrower, to project it more forward, or even downward. So there are a lot of uses and it’s very versatile.
Voluma can also be used in other areas in the upper face and mid face. For example, Voluma is a great product to treat hollow temples. The temples are located between your central forehead and your ears. Over time you lose volume in this area and it becomes hollow. Some people call this a peanut head appearance. Voluma can be placed deep in this area to fill in the hollowing. Also, nearby Voluma can be placed in the tail of the eyebrow to give your eyebrow a lift. Voluma is also a perfect product that can be used in the nose in the Non-Surgical Nose Job treatment. Voluma can be used to lift the tip of your nose, to provide structure to a flat nose, or to minimize the appearance of a hump.
Off the face, the most popular place for Voluma is in the backs of your hands. Over time you lose the fat in this area. As a results, sometimes you can see the tendons or veins on the backs of your hands. Voluma can be placed in this area to hide the appearance of the veins and tendons, making your hands look younger.
