Refreshed and renewed are the two most frequent comments we receive from patients who have had a Voluma lift. They report they no longer look tired, just a better, more youthful version of themselves. The process, however, is a paradox so subtle that only your Dermatologist and you know for sure anything was done. You look dramatically better without looking like you did anything at all. Impossible? Hardly. That's the beauty of Voluma.
Rather than just give you the standard Voluma information provided by the company that makes it, I want to give you more - not just my patients' experiences, but my own.
I have Voluma in my own face. I know how it feels and what the effect has been on how I look. It was part of my training in using the product and I love the results. It didn't hurt, although my face did feel "weird" in the injected area for a few days, and I didn't bruise. The result? I get comments everyday from patients who tell me that I look great and haven't aged a day since they saw me years ago.
Voluma helps to correct the entire face. It's not about "filling lines," but about lifting and correcting faces where hyaluronic acid has been lost with age - a normal process for us all.
Voluma is not just for those men and women who have enough birthday candles on their cake to warrant a fire extinguisher in the room. Younger men and women can get a jump start on avoiding facial aging by starting to add hyaluronic acid, the kind in Voluma, before things begin to "go south."
A Voluma lift can be done on a one-visit basis or split into a few treatments, depending on the amount you want and your budget. You can "see" how a smaller amount makes you look before you add more. I will suggest to you what I feel is the right amount and have been trained to use less material correctly to obtain better results. You're always the final judge of how much we will use.
According the company, the results last up to two years. Compared to other fillers, that's excellent.
