What is Voluma?
From the makers of Botox and Juvederm, we are proud to offer Voluma for long lasting correction of volume loss due to aging, weight loss, or other factors that take away the youthful appearance in the face. This product is a hyaluronic acid filler, similar to Juvederm, and has been shown to last up to 2 years in patients. Dr. DeGraaff has had extensive training with Voluma, as well as all fillers, and is a member of the Liquid Facelift Society. She can use Voluma to give back a more natural look without downtime or surgery.
What does volume loss matter?
Over time, your face changes in many ways. This is part of the normal aging process, but genetics and environmental factors can also play a role. You may notice a change in the appearance of your skin, typically in the form of deepening parentheses lines and wrinkles. But what may be less obvious is age-related midface volume loss.
What are the signs of volume loss?
Your cheeks may flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. You may also notice folds forming around the corners of your mouth, nasolabial folds, and potentially sagging cheeks or”jowls”. All of these are indicators of volume loss in the aging face. As you can see on this particular patient, she had typical signs of volume loss.. We used Voluma to help lift her cheeks and soften the folds around her mouth, giving her a rested, more youthful appearance.
