If you are getting older, you have more than likely noticed that your skin has developed some unwelcome changes. Problems like encroaching lines, wrinkles, and creased skin can make you appear old and tired. Another sign of facial aging is the development of sunken cheeks. Prominent cheeks are one of the hallmarks of youth, so this development can really give away your age.
Many people with sunken cheeks are looking for treatment options that do not involve surgery. Although cosmetic surgery is highly effective, many see it as being too risky and leading to results that appear unnatural. Thankfully, Voluma® exists.
What is Voluma®?
Voluma® is injected into your cheek area to lift the skin there and enhance volume that has been lost due to the aging process. It contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar that is naturally-occurring within your body. Voluma® is the only non-surgical option approved by the FDA for the treatment of age-related facial volume loss in the cheeks for adult patients. It has also been approved for use in Europe for sunken cheeks since 2005.
It is important to understand that Voluma® is normally used for the correction of cheek or mid-face volume loss and to help form a more youthful contour around high areas of the cheekbones. The product has been highly successful for volumizing, lifting, and re-contouring certain facial areas.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The answer depends on your unique genetics, environmental exposures, and lifestyle habits, among other factors. Generally, the results will last up to two years. Other factors that influence the length of time that your results will last include your weight, health, and body chemistry.
