Frequently Asked Questions about Voluma
Where does Voluma come from?
It is a hyaluronic acid volumizer, which is a substance that is naturally occurring in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. For clinical use, it is biologically derived from a non-animal source, which means allergies are possible but are rare and skin testing is not indicated.
Is Voluma similar to other fillers?
Because it contains hyaluronic acid, it is similar in structure to Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Belotero®, however, the VYCROSS™ technology has set it apart from those other fillers.
How is Voluma different?
Voluma is unlike other products because of its robust viscosity (thickness) which helps it add volume to the cheek area with a natural lift appearance. A good, natural result is achieved by injecting Voluma below the muscle and other tissue which causes a lift in the tissue. Because Voluma is injected deeper than the skin, it is considered a filler, but not a dermal filler.
What is Voluma used for?
Besides its FDA approval for cheek augmentation, it is used to achieve other natural long-lasting aesthetic results in other areas of the mid-face. It allows us another tool in our nonsurgical or liquid facelift approach to full face volume restoration.
Is Voluma safe?
Voluma has demonstrated its safety in clinical studies, as well as a high level of satisfaction with the results of treatment giving a non-surgical facelift.
Would you consider Voluma the BEST filler?
We believe it might outperform the sales of any other filler. It may even outperform Botox® because the longer duration of Voluma makes it such a great value. For the right indication, it can provide a natural and long-lasting result for the best value.
Is Voluma a good option for men?
Absolutely! The ability to give men a masculine chiseled cheek and strong jaw line will result in more aesthetic treatments for men.
