Voluma® is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that rejuvenates the face by restoring youthful volume to the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. Voluma is the latest generation hyaluronic acid (HA) filler in the Juvederm line of products, which have been safely and successfully providing beautiful results to patients for many years.
Dr. Alexander Rivkin was one of the first physicians in the nation to introduce Voluma to his practice, after the product was approved by the FDA in November of 2013. Since that time, he has treated hundreds of patients with Voluma and has seen tremendous enthusiasm for the product.
People love their refreshed, younger appearance and are delighted that the results are so subtle and natural looking that none of their friends can tell that they have undergone an aesthetic procedure. The Juvederm line of dermal fillers relies upon hyaluronic acid to provide natural, long lasting results. Naturally occurring in the body, hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin.
HA production decreases as we age, thus the moisturizing and volumizing benefits of the substance also diminish. When Voluma filler is injected into your skin, immediate volumizing will occur, providing you with a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Voluma differs from other facial volumizers in that it carries a lower incidence of adverse effects. In comparison to Sculptra®, and Radiesse®, Voluma is associated with a lower incidence of swelling and bruising, as well as reduced occurrence of nodule formation.
Clinical trials have proven that Voluma is uniquely effective in improving facial volume for a very long time. Most trials show that the effects of Voluma last around 18 months to two years – the longest duration for any temporary filler currently on the US market. Another advantage of Voluma is that it is, like all hyaluronic acid fillers, reversible.
A simple injection of an enzyme called hyaluronidase will dissolve the filler, either partially or completely. Hyualuronidase works on injected HA like Voluma without decreasing your native HA or harming your skin. It is this combination of properties that make Voluma such a good option for replacing volume in the face.
Results are long lasting, natural looking and reversible! The safety and advantages of Voluma allow Dr. Rivkin to offer this volumizing treatment to his patients, with absolute confidence.
