Full cheeks are a sign of youth. Think of all the kids whose cheeks you want to pinch because they are round and full. Over time, as we age, we lose that volume and our cheeks begin to flatten and the skin in the cheek area falls slightly which often leads to lines around the mouth as well (nasolabial folds).
The reason why so many people worry about the cheek area is because apple-like cheeks give you that youthful appearance and add a beautiful curve to the face. If you are looking to restore the volume in your cheeks or maybe you never had cheeks to begin with then Voluma is perfect for you!
What is Voluma?
Voluma is made by Allergan, the makers of Botox® and other popular facial fillers like Juvederm. Voluma is specifically indicated for the mid-face, to provide lift and volume to the cheek area. If you’re considering Voluma, you might be wondering how it works. Here’s a rundown of the process.
Voluma Technique: How Does It Work?
First, a topical numbing agent is applied to the skin for approximately 15 minutes. Then your skilled medical professional will make a few marks on your face to provide guidance of symmetry as well as areas where blood vessels are located. Your injector will inject the Voluma just above the bone. Though this might sound painful, you will actually feel nothing. In fact, most patients say this is actually more comfortable than receiving other fillers that are injected within the skin tissue layers.
From our experience at WIFH, most patients will need 1 to 2 syringes to get the desired results. The results are subtle yet dramatic; it’s amazing at how refreshed it will make you look. The comments some of our patients have made are they look rested and they just look happier (because their face is lifted), many also see improvement in the lines around their mouths as the Voluma technique lifts the skin upward.
What Makes Voluma Injection Different from Other Facial Fillers?
Other than its focus on the mid-face specifically, Voluma is also designed to build upward for lift and volume as opposed to other fillers that bind with water and plump. You will be more than satisfied with the results you’ll see from Voluma. The injections will restore volume in the cheek area, leaving the face looking rested, happy, and youthful, without making you look like you’ve had cheek implants. Best of all, the results are instant and last up to two years!
