What is Voluma?

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler designed to add volume to the cheeks and midface area, providing a youthful contour and lift. Manufactured by Allergan, Voluma is part of the Juvéderm family of fillers, renowned for their long-lasting results and natural-looking enhancements. Voluma’s unique Vycross technology allows it to integrate smoothly into the skin, offering effects that can last up to two years with optimal treatment.

Voluma is one of the three new VyCross fillers from Allergan: Voluma, Volure, and Volbella.

  • Voluma is more dense and perfect for adding volume to the face; such as for cheek or midface augmentation.
  • Vollure is less dense and very versatile. Vollure can be placed both superficially and deep and can be used both around the mouth and in the cheeks.
  • Volbella is the finest of these fillers and ideal for filling fine lines and wrinkesl and is meant to be injected superficially.

Voluma is ideal for midface augmentation and lifting of sagging facial soft tissue.

Myth Busters:

Myth 1: Dermal fillers make you look unnatural.

  • Busted: When administered by a skilled professional, Voluma provides subtle, natural-looking results. The goal is to enhance your features, not alter them drastically.

Myth 2: Voluma is only for older individuals.

  • Busted: While Voluma is excellent for addressing age-related volume loss, it’s also suitable for younger patients seeking to enhance their facial contours.

Myth 3: The procedure is painful and has a long recovery time.

  • Busted: Voluma treatments involve minimal discomfort, often described as a slight pinch. Recovery time is typically short, with many patients resuming normal activities immediately after treatment.

Myth 4: Once you start, you can’t stop using fillers.

  • Busted: You can choose to discontinue use at any time. Your skin will gradually return to its pre-treatment state, though the benefits of previous treatments might still be noticeable for some time.
