When it comes to dermal fillers, many of them are very similar and often used for the same purposes. You have your hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, and then you have calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) fillers like Radiesse.
These fillers are often used for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance of the face. However, a new type of filler has joined the facial filler family.
Voluma is the newest hyaluronic filler by the same company that created the original Juvederm. So what makes it so different than the others? Voluma is now the first and only dermal filler that is approved by the FDA for adding instant volume to a person's cheeks.
Sunken or hollow cheeks are a common problem that many people face as they get older. Voluma provides a long-lasting solution that achieves a subtle lift for many patients. By injecting the gel into an area of lost volume in the cheeks, a board-certified plastic surgeon can restore volume and create a more youthful shape and contour of the face. A single Voluma treatment can provide you with results lasting for up to two years. And, just like other dermal fillers, a Voluma treatment is quick and requires little to no downtime.
Patients who combine their non-surgical fillers and Botox often experience better results from their treatments. Using a combination of different injectables and fillers can address other problem areas, such as nasolabial folds and crow's feet, in addition to restoring volume to the cheeks. This often results in an even younger look, and in some cases, may resemble the results of a surgical procedure like the facelift.
