Injectable dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of age-related cosmetic concerns, including volume loss and wrinkles. At Las Vegas Laser & Lipo, we offer several of these injectable dermal fillers to treat and address several visible effects of age. We use Voluma® to improve cheek contour and restore volume to the midface to create a more youthful appearance. This minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment was specifically designed to address midface volume loss and can provide correction to this age-related concern for up to two years. If you are interested in learning more about how you can restore a younger-looking appearance with Voluma® and the other injectable dermal fillers offered at Las Vegas Laser & Lipo, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Zimmerman!
What is Voluma®?
This injectable filler is part of the Juvederm® line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and can be used to correct a “hollow” or “sunken” appearance. Voluma® is FDA-approved to treat volume loss in the cheek and midface areas. The hyaluronic acid found in Voluma® works to replace your naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that has diminished due to aging. It attracts moisture to the treatment areas, which results in a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Voluma®
- Short injection sessions that can easily be scheduled into a lunch hour
- Little to no downtime for minimal disruption to your daily routine
- Immediate, natural-looking results that can last for up to 2 years
- Can be used safely on patients with a wide range of skin types and skin tones
What to expect during an injection session
Voluma® is administered using a fine needle and we inject the filler directly beneath the skin of the midface area to provide immediate correction to facial volume loss and improve the contour of the cheeks. Voluma® is formulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to reduce any discomfort patients may experience during the injection process. At the patient’s request, we can also apply a topical numbing cream to further improve patient comfort during this minimally-invasive treatment. Voluma® injection sessions typically last for 30-45 minutes and yield instant correction in the treatment area. Most of our patients immediately return to their normal activities following their injection session.
What results can I expect?
You should experience an immediate improvement in midface volume and cheek contour with final results developing within one week of your injection session. The results of Voluma® treatments can last for up to 2 years. Individual results may vary from patient to patient.
