With age comes a loss of skin volume, firmness and moisture. It’s simply a fact of life. You may be noticing such changes as sunken cheeks or thinner skin than you had in the past, leaving you looking tired and older than you would like. Fortunately, there is something you can do to return that youthful glow to your face. Read on to learn more about how to restore volume loss in the cheeks with Voluma® injections at our office.
Your skin loses a valuable substance called hyaluronic acid as you age. This substance acts as a cushion between your skin’s cells to give it plump volume and elasticity. As it begins to diminish over time, your skin becomes thin and sunken, leading to a haggard look and increased wrinkles. Voluma® helps to combat this effect by adding volume and improved contour to your face through the use of an injectable gel. It’s FDA-approved and safe. There’s little to no downtime with Voluma®. The result is the restoration of fullness to your cheek area and a plumped up, smoother appearance to wrinkles.
How It Works
Moisture and volume are lost with the depletion of hyaluronic acid over time. The gel of Voluma® is injected into the cheek area to immediately restore their volume. In fact, your face will have a noticeably improved contour that will improve gradually over time as your own hyaluronic acid production is stimulated.
What to Expect
A treatment with Voluma® is designed to be quick and convenient. You can expect it to take only minutes, though a consultation will be necessary. Your treatment may or may not be on the same day as your consultation. Results can be seen right away, but follow-up treatments may be desired, depending on your desired results and the particular situation. There’s little discomfort to be expected, as Voluma® contains the anesthetic lidocaine.
If you’re hoping to restore the plump, youthful glow to your skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the cheek area, Voluma® treatment at the office of Dr. Michael I. Jacobs might be right for you. Set up an initial consultation at our office in New York, NY to determine if you may be a candidate.
