Voluma Fillers Questions and Answers

When we are young, our skin is naturally full, smooth, and vibrant. However, as we age these things begin to change and while the effects of aging are completely natural, they are not often desired.

What are Voluma Fillers?

Voluma™ fillers are a non-surgical, injectable dermal filler product put out by Juvéderm®. Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe and effective way to boost volume in the cheek area, as well as for chin augmentation in adults over the age of 21.

The operative ingredient in Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), which comes in a gel-like mixture. HA is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in your body, with the highest concentrations found in the fluid in your joints and eyes. As such, you do not have to worry that you are putting a foreign substance into your skin with Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers!

When hyaluronic acid is used in a dermal filler like Juvéderm® Voluma™, it works by stimulating your body to generate an increased production of collagen and elastin in the treatment area. Collagen and elastin are fibrous proteins that are essential for the health of your skin, as they provide structural integrity to every connective tissue in your body. However, our body naturally produces less collagen and elastin as we age, causing skin conditions like wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume.

As such, Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers work to combat the signs of aging by using hyaluronic acid to stimulate increased production of collagen and elastin.

How long does Voluma Last for?

Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers are one of the longest-lasting fillers on the market, not only when compared to other Juvéderm® products but also in comparison to all dermal fillers. Patients who receive Juvéderm® Voluma™ filler treatment often see results that last up to two years! That said, many patients also require a touch-up treatment session around one year after the initial injection to help with longevity.

Moreover, Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers offer instant results, as the gel-like mixture used in the injection immediately boosts volume in the treatment area. At the same time, the hyaluronic acid ensures the longevity of the results by increasing collagen and elastin production. Not only do Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers offer instant results, but they also do not require any downtime after treatment. As such, you should be able to resume your daily routine after treatment without any complications.

For optimal results, it is vital to ensure that you are receiving treatment from an experienced and fully licensed aesthetician. At Cara Mia Medspa in Zurich, Illinois, our physicians and licensed aestheticians would be delighted to provide you with excellent Juvéderm® Voluma™ filler treatment.

What are Voluma Fillers used for?

Technically known as a volumizer, Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers are primarily used to boost volume in the areas around your cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. If volume loss has caused your cheeks to feel flat or hollow, or you have noticed skin laxity and recession around your chin, Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers are one of the best options available to correct such aging signs.

Juvéderm® Voluma™ fillers are specifically formulated to boost volume in all three areas of your cheek, including the apex, apple, and hollow of your cheek, as well as your jawline and the submental areas directly beneath your chin.
