Voluma Cosmetic Fillers
Anti-Aging Treatments at Our Burbank Cosmetic Dermatology Office
As your skin gets older, it begins to gradually decline, which results
in a loss of volume and sunken cheeks. Losing plumpness and volume in
your face is one of the hallmark signs of facial aging, and occurs with
different degrees of severity, depending on the individual. In the past,
going under the knife with surgery was the only option to tighten and
lift aging skin.
Fortunately, there is now an FDA-approved and non-surgical solution that
is specifically designed to address this sagging, aging skin. Voluma is
a robust collagen filler that is made from hyaluronic acid, which works
instantly to enhance the collagen that already exists in your body, and
offers a greater lift that will surely give you skin that is noticeably
smoother and decidedly firmer.
Fast Facts On Voluma

Volume is restored while lines and wrinkles are smoothed. Many patients
experience a lifting effect as well.
Results have been shown to be long-lasting, and many patients retain results
for a year or more.
Immediately after the treatment, there may be temporary swelling or redness,
for the first day. As with any injectable filler, there is a chance of
bruising, particularly in individuals taking aspirin or other medications
that may thin the blood. This typically resolves in less than one week.
Your nurse or physician injector can educate you on ways to avoid or decrease
the likelihood of this happening.
