One of the most exciting news in the world of injectable fillers is the recent FDA approval of Voluma for temporary correction of age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) like other injectables such as Juvederm and Restylane. However, it is formulated in a new way so that it provides more lift and lasts longer than other HAs.
So, what is age-related volume loss in the cheeks? The hollow, sagging, flat appearance of cheeks happens to some of us as we age and lose facial fat. Yes, it seems unfair that we lose fat in the cheeks but gain it in the abdomen! When the volume is replaced in the mid-cheek area, the nasolabial folds and undereye hollowness are diminished. Voluma provides an instant lift that can last up to two years. Patients are calling it a “liquid lift” and it usually takes less than an hour with minimal to no bruising or swelling. Call today to schedule your consultation to see if you are a candidate for this exciting new filler.
