What is hyaluronic acid?

A sunken facial appearance is often due to the loss of hyaluronic acid. It can also bring the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Voluma is part of the Juvéderm collection of hyaluronic acid fillers. You have probably heard of hyaluronic acid. It is has become a standard part of skin care and the cosmetic world. But, what exactly is it? As one of the building blocks of the skin, hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body. It is found between the cells to keep the skin looking firm and youthful. Hyaluronic acid brings nutrients to the skin to retain or add moisture, fullness, and softness. When used in injectable fillers, volume is added, and the contours of the face are restored. Patients benefit from a more youthful, natural appearance.

The science behind VolumaTreatment with Voluma Filler from Dr. Jeanine Downie, Image Dermatology

As part of the Juvéderm collection manufactured by Allergan, Voluma is an FDA approved injectable filler. It is used to address volume loss in the midface for patients ages 21 and older. Voluma is created using Vycross technology. It is a tightly cross-linked gel. The formulation produces a natural, three-dimensional facial contour. This advanced technology allows the gel to produce a long-lasting lift and added volume. Voluma is also created with lidocaine added to ensure patient comfort during the treatment.

Whereas many dermal fillers simply fill lines and creases in a two-dimensional manner, Voluma takes facial aesthetics to the next level by giving a three-dimensional result. This filler allows physicians to add volume and to restore the natural curves from the cheekbone to the midface.

Using a fine, sterile needle, Juvéderm Voluma is injected into the targeted area of the cheek or midface. The product boosts volume and contours the face. In just minutes, youth is restored, and the skin returns to its firm, plump state. The results are immediate. No downtime is needed, and you can return to work or your daily activities.
