What Is a Dermal Filler and Where Can It Be Used?
In order to understand Voluma, it is important to understand what a dermal filler is designed to do. By nature, dermal fillers are designed to break down in the body, making them temporary. But just because they are temporary does not mean they don’t work like magic! As the body absorbs the dermal filler, it stimulates the creation of collagen, smoothing out skin and giving it a more youthful elasticity.
Often, dermal fillers are used in areas prone to the loss of subcutaneous collagen and fat as we age. This includes the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, temporal areas, “smile lines,” lips, marionettes, and cheeks. The goal is not to add fat to these areas, but instead to restore volume using a dermal filler. The results are most impressive in areas of moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
How Can Hyaluronic Acid Give Me Fuller Cheeks?
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that acts as a humectant, which is a fancy term for something that attracts water and aids in hydration. Injecting Voluma into the cheeks increases their prominence and reduces the demarcation of fine lines that give the appearance of age. By hydrating the cheek area and stimulating collagen production, your skin will appear plumper and fuller.
One of the reasons Voluma is so effective is because it contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market. It is currently the number one best-selling brand in injectable dermal fillers. It is the only dermal filler that has been proven to last for up to two years in the cheeks.
Temporary But Long-Lasting
Since dermal fillers are designed to be broken down in the body, and everyone’s body is different, how long they will last will be different for every individual. Many people find that Voluma will last as long as 14 months, with some people seeing results in the cheeks for up to two years. Others may find that it has a shorter time-frame of six to nine months. Nonetheless, for those seeking the reduction of facial lines and an increase in plump, more youthful-looking skin, this product delivers.
Voluma is a safe and viable alternative to cosmetic surgery. It smooths skin, contours cheeks, and plumps facial volume. The process is fast, non-surgical, and requires no downtime. While its effects are not permanent, they are long-lasting and give no indication that you have received cosmetic treatment.
