The Voluma Lift
Looking in a mirror right after a voluma treatment I often hear clients say, “That’s exactly what I wanted, I just wasn’t sure how to describe it” or “I look a lot better but I don’t think anyone will be able to tell what I had done.” As we age we lose collagen, fat, even some of some of our bony support which causes our cheeks to descend downward!
Ugh, we get hollowing or sometimes protrusion of the fat pads under the eye, laxity of the muscle and skin in our cheeks contributing to jowling and sagging in our lower face. Not okay.
My philosophy is we can age with a few lines and wrinkles but aging with sagging is not okay. Voluma is the game changer.
Voluma is a injectable gel filler made by Allergan, the makers of Botox. What is an injectable gel? Well, fillers have come a long way in the last decade. Hyluronic acid is already naturally occurring in our skin and joints. HA’s as we call them are simply sugar molecule that hydrate and volumize by holding up to 100x their weight in H2O. Voluma uses the newest vycross technology to cross-link the hyluronic acid for maximum lift and longevity. It’s pretty simple, when we replace the support in the cheeks our tissues lift, they look and move like they did when we were younger. Our facial muscles even act like they did when we were younger. And guess what, it looks natural! With the right technique the treated cheek is tighter, lifted…not bigger. The under eye area is improved as well. Often times it negates the need for filler in the smile lines due the the lift around the mouth. The angle of the jaw and jowling improves.
What can I expect during and after a treatment? I tell my clients they can experience an achy, pressure sensation at the most during treatment and sometimes minor bruising, very little swelling occurs following injection. Avoiding exercise and waiting a few hours to apply makeup is about it for post procedure instructions Almost everyone is a candidate for this treatment.
