Lifters Vs Fillers: The Benefits of Voluma

As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly correct your concerns and cater to your desired expectations.

Voluma adds volume, structure and lift using its new and patented VYCROSS technology allowing for better sculpting by the physician injector, and extends the life of the filler. It is very different from your standard fillers- which seemingly fill in wrinkles and lines. Voluma acts more as a face sculpting technique in order to sharpen features and give the overall aesthetic outcome of a facelift.

Most of us don’t think about adding volume and lift in the cheeks and mid-face. However, doing so not only re-contours the face, giving us a more youthful appearance, it also minimizes the lines around the mouth. Voluma becomes the total facial, non-invasive treatment that can fully enhance and youthify your appearance. Voluma is the perfect alternative to an implant or surgical lift.

BREAK DOWN

  • The only FDA – approved filler to correct age related volume loss in the midface. This simply creates a smoother contour with ageless results.
  • VYCROSS technology produces an efficiently and tightly cross-linked hydraulic gel, which increases and contributes to its lift capacity and duration- even optimizing in conjunction with other facial fillers.
  • Uniquely formulated and customized treatments provide natural-looking advancements.

Benefits of Juvederm Voluma™ XC:

Juvederm® is very versatile and has many applications including:

  • Smile and frown lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Cheek sculpting
  • Filling deep lines and folds

The results of Voluma last up to 2 years, making it an excellent, longer-term solution to volume loss we all experience, and you should be able to return to your normal activities after 24 hours.

Is Juvéderm® Voluma™ Right For Me?

Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC treatment is for people over 21 years old. Most clients are between 30 and 65 years old and want to reduce the appearance of the following signs of aging:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Creases in the forehead
  • Marionette lines
  • Smile lines

They also want to plump out areas they believe are unattractively thin. Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC hasn’t been tested on pregnant or nursing women, so it’s suggested that they forego the procedure until they’re no longer pregnant or nursing.

FULL BENEFITS

  • Non-Invasive
  • No Downtime
  • Multi-Faceted Dermal Filler
  • Restores Skin Volume
  • Removes Wrinkles
  • FDA Approved

What separates Voluma from other fillers like Sculptra is it is purely a “lifter” which happens to reiterate other benefits that may seem comparable. However, they are not. Voluma is the only product of this kind on the market today which attributes to the rise in its popularity. The proof is in the results.

Understanding The Difference Between Filling and Lifting

Collagen is a crucial component in keeping skin looking youthful and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra® Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen. It is ultimately ideal for candidates who are looking to “fill in” their lines- hence injectable filler.

Sculptra® Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments. It targets the underlying causes of the signs of aging. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person.

Sculptra® Aesthetic is made of a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which works to replace lost collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid is safe — absorbed naturally by the body — and has been used for years in dissolvable stitches.

Restoring Volume to Your Face or Pinpoint Wrinkles?

Before any type of dermal filler or lift treatment, a complete and thorough consultation to evaluate a patient’s needs and concerns is performed.

Voluma is available and one of our most sought after results because of its optimal results in enhancing, replenishing, and sculpting facial structure and volume to a natural and aesthetic level of beauty.
