If you are seeing your cheeks loosing volume and lines or folds starting around your nose and mouth, and you wish your face could be smoother, fuller, and more radiant-looking, you may want to look into using a cheek filler.
These injectable, non-surgical cheek fillers are perfect for softening creases, restoring volume and enhancing natural contours. One dermal filler that’s popular for its effectiveness in restoring plumpness to the mid-face is Voluma, made by Allergan the makers of Botox and Juvederm.
Why Choose Voluma as your Cheek Filler?
Certainly there are other cheek fillers on the market. Voluma, however, provides natural-looking results restoring volume to the mid-face and cheek area. It’s a soft-tissue filler providing amazing volume and lift. It can do this because of its cross-linked structure and light molecular weight to create a cohesive, smoothing gel with maximum lift.
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is made naturally by our bodies, and plays an important role in keeping our skin plum and hydrated. Voluma is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid that’s designed to generate results that last up to 2 years.
How is Voluma Administered?
A physician or experienced injector (Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner or Nurse) will help to create a customized treatment plan for you. Prior to your office visit, the doctor may recommend avoiding the ingestion of aspirin, omega-3, vitamin E, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, and St. John’s Wort within 10-12 days of the injection. This helps lessen bruising and bleeding.
A topical numbing cream will be applied about 10-15 minutes before the treatment begins. Voluma is formulated with an anesthetic to help make the injections more comfortable. As your practitioner injects the filler into your mid-face they will be pinching an massaging to mold and distribute the filler. Results are immediate.
Any time you are sticking a needle into the skin there is always the risk of bruising, but they resolve in a few days. You will also have some swelling and you could experience some mild tenderness at the injection sites, but there is little or no downtime with Voluma.
Results You Can Expect from Voluma Cheek Fillers
Even if your volume loss is moderate to severe, you will see great results and have younger-looking, beautiful skin. Voluma adds plumpness to cheeks, smooths lines around the eyes, and diminishes the appearance of lines or folds around your nose and mouth.
It also defines your facial features, fills hollows and accentuates contours. Because Voluma was studied in all skin types, its effectiveness is well-documented. It’s the only product that’s FDA-approved for correcting volume loss due to age in the mid-face.
If you have hollowed cheeks, deep smile lines and marionette lines, a jowly jawline, or a too-small chin, Voluma cheek filler can take years off your appearance. The use of Voluma can rejuvenate your appearance in a natural, healthy-looking way.
