One of the newest hyaluranic acid facial fillers to hit the market is Voluma. Our nurse injectors, Amy and Beth are able to give the face a subtle lift with quick results. As we age, we tend to lose fat in the mid-portion of our cheeks. The skin and soft tissue begins to slide down and give the face a boxy appearance rather than the full, youthful, high-cheekbone look.
The recently FDA-approved Voluma can instantly add volume to the cheek area giving the face a mild lift and help restore the contour lost with aging. The added plus with this product is the result can last up to two years. The previous hyaluronic acid fillers (i.e.Juvederm, Restylane) may last up to 6-9 months.
Dr. Matthew Blanton, a board-certified plastic surgeon sees an occasional patient who desires a facelift and wants increased facial volume but are not quite surgical facelift candidates. “Some patients complain that their cheeks don’t look as full as they used to be,” Blanton says. By injecting Voluma in the proper areas along the cheek one can obtain a subtle lift. The benefit to this procedure is that it can be a lunchtime procedure; a few minutes in and out and you can resume normal activities for the rest of the day. He cautions that if a patient is seeking to have this procedure performed they should seek a professional consult prior to having it performed. Our office is equipped with highly-trained nurse injectors who know how to augment the facial anatomy appropriately and achieve amazing results.
