Voluma cheek filler for youthful facial contours in Montclair, NJ
While wrinkles are likely the first thing that comes to mind when you think about the effects of aging on your facial appearance, they are just one of several ways that getting older can impact the way we look. Losing volume in the midface (cheek area) is a common occurrence as we age, which can lead to loose and sagging skin, flattened cheeks, and jowling. With expert injections of Voluma cheek filler by Dr. Jeanine Downie at image Dermatology® P.C., patients in the Montclair, NJ area can restore their youthful facial contours, taking years off their appearance for up to 18 months at a time.
What is Voluma, and how does it work?
Voluma is a dermal filler from the renowned Juvéderm family of facial fillers. It is formulated from hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts water and helps to provide a plump, hydrated appearance to the skin. In Voluma, it is paired with lidocaine for a comfortable injection experience and is a thicker formulation with a higher viscosity than many other types of dermal fillers. This enables the filler to be injected into the deeper layers of the dermis, where it provides true volume amplification and remarkable results. Dr. Downie conducted clinical trials for Allergan with Voluma and teaches others how to inject it for natural-looking results without side effects such as lumps or discoloration. In addition, Dr. Downie has first-hand experience with using Voluma on her own skin — she uses Voluma on herself to maintain a fresh, youthful appearance.
