Voluma® was the first injectable approved by the FDA to treat age-related volume loss in the middle region of the face. Unlike many other fillers that fade within just a few months, Voluma® actually triggers the body’s healing response to create long-term results. This injectable has given our team the ability to take years off of a patient’s appearance, and it could be just what you need to restore your confidence.
Volume Loss and Other Age-Related Blemishes
Having pockets of fat just under the skin might sound like a bad thing, but this soft tissue can actually improve the shape of your face. Thin layers of fat will keep your skin looking firm, toned, and healthy. Unfortunately, there may come a point when your body begins to metabolize some of the fat in your face, and that can result in quite a few cosmetic problems. Volume loss often leads to sunken cheeks, loose jowls, wrinkles, and fine lines.
What Causes Volume Loss?
Many different variables will impact the appearance of your face over the years, including weight fluctuations and your hormones. Adults who stay at a healthy weight and protect their skin from the sun might be able to avoid these blemishes for a period of time, but your age will eventually catch up with you. Some patients are even predisposed to severe volume loss due to their genetics and upbringing. Once the fatty tissue is gone and the skin is no longer healthy, professional treatments such as Voluma® are generally the only way to create long-term results.
Voluma® is typically referred to as a hyaluronic acid filler because it contains a relatively high dose of this unique compound. After years of extensive research, doctors discovered that they could actually stimulate the body into healing itself with the proper injections. Within moments of injecting hyaluronic acid into a patient, the body will begin producing some of the proteins that protect and moisturize skin. Voluma® immediately adds volume to the face, but the results will continue to improve as the soft tissue heals itself.
The Benefits of Voluma®
Many other injectables only produce results for a short period of time. Even with advanced fillers, the body will quickly begin the process of expelling the foreign substances. Since hyaluronic acid triggers the body’s natural healing response, the results of Voluma® injections often last for two years or longer! Many patients claim that they are still satisfied with the results after 25 months.
