Many did not expect the reception that dermal fillers will get from San Diego and from other cities in the US. Dermal fillers are revolutionizing cosmetic treatments and the possibilities seem to be endless. There are many dermal types of filler out in the market today and Voluma is among one of the more popular dermal fillers available in the city that seems to be living up to what it promises.
Voluma is a form of injectable filler that is designed to replenish the volume that was lost by the skin as a natural effect of aging and can also be used to restore the youthful definition of the cheeks to enhance the overall appearance of the face. Voluma is made from hyaluronic acid which is naturally in the body and functions to add volume and fullness to the skin. Voluma treatments have very minimal side effects because of this as the dermal filler is naturally broken down by the body over time.
What makes Voluma different from all the other dermal fillers is that it is infused with lidocaine (a numbing agent) which makes the entire treatment with Voluma very comfortable for a patient.
Voluma is also known for having a smoother consistency compared to other dermal fillers in the market. This allows for a very natural and very smooth effect upon injection. The effects of one Voluma treatment can also last for as long as 12 to 24 months which is twice as long as other popular dermal fillers which reduces the need for touch ups or re-treatments.
Voluma is actually the only FDA approved dermal filler that has the ability to add volume to the mid portion (cheek area) of the face. When we were younger, the shapes of our faces were very similar to the shape of a heart or an inverted triangle. But the effects of gravity and aging invert this triangle as our cheeks sag and as we lose definition in our jaw line. Voluma changes this and reverses the triangle, adding volume to the middle portion of the face for a more youthful appearance, and so far this is the only dermal filler in the market who can do this with success.
