Tell tale signs of age are not limited to wrinkles and tired eyes. With age, one’s facial skin also tends to loosen up and sag. This results in hollow cheeks and a loss of volume in the face. To help restore the volume to the cheek region, there exists a treatment called Voluma.
This treatment is an effective way to restore volume to your cheeks. The increase in volume under your skin will provide a lift to the treatment area and adds plumpness to the cheeks. The Voluma is a gel based solution that is injected deep into the skin, into facial tissues under the cheek region.
Voluma is an FDA approved gel based filler that is made of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, which is a numbing agent. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that occurs naturally in the body and is known to help improve the strength and quality of the skin.
Rejuvenation at Your Fingertips
A process called Vycross is employed to cross-link the Voluma. It is indeed this cross-linking that aids in the formula’s lifting capability and ensures lasting results. This process is a great solution for anyone who wants a non-surgical treatment to help rejuvenate their aging skin.
Voluma is a thick gel that can be molded by an experienced cosmetic doctor to give you improved facial contours and a natural end result. Patients undergoing the treatment will experience exceptional benefits soon after the treatment is over. The changes can be seen instantly.
Voluma is composed of natural ingredients, meaning that it is safe in many different types of skin and has a low risk of any side effects. The benefits of Voluma don’t end at plumping up the cheeks. The formula has also been found to help reduce other signs of aging such as wrinkles.
How It Works
As you embark on this journey, you will first need to find a qualified practitioner. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not take long to perform. A Voluma syringe filled with the gel is injected deep into your skin, slightly above the cheekbone. Upon injection, the volume is restored.
You will not experience pain as the gel consists of the numbing agent, lidocaine. The number of syringes to be used will vary from person to person based on the amount of correction needed and the desired look of an individual patient.
Like any other facial procedure, you will experience some swelling and bruising, but this is normal and will subside quickly. After the procedure, your skin will be tender, so you must be gentle while washing or rubbing it for a few days.
Voluma is safe to use in facial rejuvenation and most importantly, it can give you the youthful allure you desire. The increase in volume on your face, the reduction in wrinkles, and the improved contours in your facial region will give you a vibrant and beautiful look that will fill you with confidence.
