If there’s a dermal filler-of-the-year award, we’d like it to go to Voluma®, an FDA-approved dermal filler from the Juvéderm® family of fillers. Voluma was originally formulated to replenish lost cheek volume, providing up to two years of uplifting benefits — and we still use it for this purpose and get wonderful results. However, Voluma is branching out and providers like us are discovering that it can be used in other exciting ways to enhance your facial contours.
Here’s a closer look at the versatility and advantages of Voluma.
Voluma acts like bone.
This sounds strange because most fillers are made of a soft gel, the key word being “soft.” Packed with a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, fillers are designed to be soft so they can plump and smooth skin while maintaining a natural look and movement to your facial contours. Voluma is different. Specifically, Voluma was formulated to be stronger and denser, to mimic the look of bone, so it could provide more lift and structure to the cheek bone area. These qualities that help to lift and define the cheeks are the same qualities needed to provide more definition and structure to other areas of the face like the jawline and chin.
A cascade of rejuvenating benefits.
The natural aging process is responsible for all kinds of sagging. As we lose elastin and collagen, our facial and neck contours can start to droop. Voluma, when injected along the jawline, can help to provide more definition to the jaw. But the benefit of a stronger jawline affords a cascade of other benefits. Enhancing your jawline can help lift and smooth skin, diminishing the appearance of a double chin or slimming the appearance of your jawline.
Achieve balance without surgery.
From time immemorial, if you were born with a weak chin, you were stuck with a weak chin unless you underwent costly surgery. Thanks to Voluma, you can enhance your chin and jawline and achieve more balance to your facial contours with minimal to no downtime. Best of all, the benefits are immediate! How can you beat that?
