Voluma injectable filler for enhanced cheek volume and chin augmentation in Montclair, NJ
Not long ago, the only way to enhance the contours of your face was through invasive surgeries with a long downtime and recovery process. However, dermatological treatments have undergone rapid advances in recent years and patients now have a wide array of options for transforming their appearance with natural-looking, yet noticeable results. For patients who are seeking a less invasive way to restore youthful cheek volume or augment their natural chin contours, Voluma™ injectable dermal filler at image Dermatology® P.C. in Montclair, NJ may be a great choice.
What is Voluma and how does it work?
Voluma is a dermal filler in the Juvéderm family that is formulated from hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar compound that naturally occurs in the body. Voluma is designed to augment the natural contours of your face in areas such as the cheeks and chin, and restores lost volume in these areas if they have begun to sag and lose their definition due to aging. The end result is a more voluminous, lifted cheek area or a more defined chin and jaw line for an overall rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Even better, Voluma provides results that last up to 18 months at a time.
Voluma cheek filler
Voluma has been used for many years to restore volume to the cheeks for an ageless appearance. As we age, our skin naturally loses fat and volume, which can result in a sagging or hollowed-out look in your cheeks as well as wrinkles and folds in the area. While some dermal fillers are intended to fill in wrinkles, Voluma is designed to be injected deeper into the skin to restore this lost volume, while at the same time providing a supportive scaffolding for your skin that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and boosts your skin’s collagen production for long-lasting volume and fullness.
Voluma for chin augmentation
Square, firm jaw lines with a well-defined chin are undeniably attractive—if you think about the most attractive celebrities, many of them have these features, which project strength and beauty. While genetics and age aren’t always on our side, there are safe and effective options to enhance the chin and jaw without surgery! Voluma is a cohesive dermal filler that holds its shape well once it is injected into the skin, which makes it a great choice for patients who are seeking to non-surgically augment their natural features. Also called a “liquid chin augmentation,” Voluma can be used to enhance men and women’s chins that are:
- Underprojected, which can lead to a “double chin” appearance
- Poorly defined
- Out of balance with the rest of the face
- Sagging due to age
While Voluma has long been a popular dermal filler for enhancing the cheeks, it has more recently been approved by the FDA for use in chin augmentation, making it the first product of its kind to receive FDA approval for this purpose. Dr. Jeanine Downie is proud to have served as an investigator on the associated clinical trial.
