Managing the middle of your face can be quite an endeavor. You want to have a smooth, wrinkle-free face, but you also don’t want to undergo a treatment that will leave you with an emotionless face. You want results, but you don’t want to undergo surgery to get there.
The best non-invasive solution for midface wrinkles is the FDA approved Voluma. Voluma, from the makers of Juvederm, is a dermal filler which is proven to even out wrinkles and fine lines in the cheeks. Estetika Skin and Laser Services offers this revolutionary treatment to all our Wisconsin and Florida patients.
What is Voluma?
Voluma’s primary goal is to increase volume in the face. Beyond just wrinkles, a loss of volume can leave a face looking tired and aged. By boosting the skin and returning the volume back to the face, you begin to remove the lasting effects of wrinkles. Invasive and surgical treatments try to accomplish these same goals, but they go about them in a much harsher fashion, they pull and tighten the face through sutures. Voluma does the same thing, only instead of pulling the skin, it gently lifts it from within.
The reason our skin looks firm and full of volume is because the genetic makeup of the skin resembles mini balloons. These balloons are filled with water and will bounce back after being pressured. The loss of volume occurs when these balloons no longer inflate. The skin, which is used to resting on the inflated balloons, begins to fold over itself as the balloons deflate; this is the primary cause of wrinkles.
How Does Voluma Work?
So how do you restore volume? Refill the balloons! Voluma’s natural formula reintroduces the essential chemicals for retaining moisture in the skin, causing a natural lift to the cheeks. The base chemical used is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a protein chain which houses the balloons. By supplementing the cheeks with this HA, the skin can absorb more water and inflate more balloons.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Voluma?
Voluma works best for healthy adults who are beginning to see the telltale signs of aging around their cheeks. It’s not intended for teens, or adults who are too old. The best ages are between 30 and 50. There are certain conditions which may prevent you from using Voluma. The most common reasons that prevent people from taking Voluma are certain blood diseases or medications which affect the blood’s ability to clot. We’ll go over your medical history and your medications during your initial consultation.
