Voluma is a long-lasting dermal filler, with results remaining visible for up to two years after treatment. It is specially crafted to lift the cheeks and add volume to the cheeks and jawline. With countless happy patients, it may be the perfect treatment for you.
The purpose of this groundbreaking injectable is to replace volume under the skin that’s been lost, especially around the cheeks and jawline. It is made with hyaluronic acid, which has a great ability to hold moisture in the tissues.
In fact, hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, and this hyaluronic acid decreases with age, accounting for sagging skin and hallowing cheeks. By injecting Voluma into the mid face region, our aestheticians can actually create similar effects to a facelift. Voluma is able to smooth out wrinkles and improve sagging in the jowls. Altogether, these effects serve to make someone’s face look much brighter and more refreshed. On top of that, Voluma is one of the longest lasting dermal fillers—up to 2 years in most patients.
Beyond that, other benefits of Voluma include:
- Treatment takes less than an hour
- Treatment is safe for people of all ethnicities
- Not tested on animals and requires no allergy testing
- Contains lidocaine, Which helps patients remain comfortable throughout the procedure
As long as a patient is seeking the cosmetic improvements brought about by Voluma, they are likely a candidate for treatment. In fact, there are very few restrictions when it comes to receiving Voluma. If you have an allergy to lidocaine, you would not be a candidate, as Voluma contains lidocaine as a mild anesthetic.
Beyond that, you can expect your aesthetician at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery to ask many questions to ensure you are safe to undergo treatment. From a cosmetic perspective, Houston Voluma candidates are usually between 30 and 60 years of age and display moderate signs of aging in the mid face area. If there are also signs of aging in other areas of the face, Voluma can be combined with other injectables to produce comprehensive rejuvenation of the face.
Once you leave our office, you may experience some redness, bruising, or mild swelling. If you experience these, you can reasonably expect them to dissipate within a week. If necessary, over-the-counter pain medication can help resolve these issues. All in all, recovery is generally very mild, with patients returning to their daily routing immediately after the procedure.
