Combat Facial Gauntness with Voluma

Published on November 14, 2017

Skin loses its volume, firmness, and moisture with age. Happily, science has created an effective solution for it: Juvederm Voluma. Voluma is an injectable treatment offered by Dr. Mirwat Sami at Houston Oculofacial Plastic Surgery.

Cheek Volume

Cheek volume can make a huge difference in the way a person looks. Having very little volume in the cheeks can make the face appear sunken and harsh and can also highlight the look of fine lines. This can make a person self-conscious about how they appear to the world.

The reason why skin looks sunken and thin over time is because it contains lower levels of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid exists in your cells naturally, making your skin firm and youthful. As you age, the level of this substance declines, causing your skin’s volume to disappear. This results in harsh and prominent facial bones and sagging skin.

Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved injectable dermal filler designed specifically to restore volume to the cheeks. This gel can instill the skin with the perfect amount of volume. When you get Voluma injections at Houston Oculofacial Plastic Surgery, it can add to the contours of the cheeks and also add a youthful look in the process.

Voluma from Dr. Sami helps you rejuvenate gaunt cheeks, restoring lost volume. Once volume is restored to one’s cheeks, the skin is restored in a matter of minutes, making your cheeks look plumper for a fresh and youthful appearance. Having firm, voluminous, and youthful skin can help instill a newfound sense of self-confidence in a person.

How Does It Work?

Voluma is composed of synthetic cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a substance that attracts water molecules to create volume through increased moisture. When the body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid is supplemented in this way, it helps to restore the natural suppleness of the skin

During the treatment process, a needle is used to precisely inject Voluma into the areas of the cheek that are lacking in volume, boosting the volume to help in contouring the cheeks. In a matter of minute, the cheeks regain their firmness, subtracting years from the face.

Voluma is a deeper-reaching injection, which means it would normally involve a degree of pain. Because this product contains a local anesthetic called Lidocaine, the region is numbed to pain and discomfort. This results in a more comfortable procedure for the patient.

The effects of Juvederm Voluma can last for a long time, up to two year after the treatment date. This makes it one of the longest-lasting facial fillers available on the market.
