Over time, the soft tissue under our skin starts to diminish. This leaves our facial appearance looking hollow. Juvederm Voluma is a relatively new injectable dermal filler designed specifically to return volume to the face and has grown in popularity thanks to its superior lifting capability.
Voluma is a hyaluronic-acid filler that has very low hydrophilic properties, meaning that it has a very low rate of water absorption. Because of this, the product will not expand after injection. This benefit takes the guesswork out of how much to use, allowing for controlled, precise results.
Whereas other HA fillers last for eight to twelve months, studies have shown that Voluma can last for two or more years. An added benefit is that the filler stimulates collagen production to promote the body’s own natural rejuvenation process.
To learn more about Voluma or any of the other available injectable dermal fillers, contact our San Francisco office to set up a consultation. If you’re considering non-surgical facial enhancement, there’s no better-qualified injector than board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Evan Ransom.
