Voluma™ for Facial Rejuvenation
What is Voluma™?
Voluma™ is an injectable dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to bind water to cells. Voluma is uniquely formulated with extensive cross-linking, which provides an excellent lifting capacity, making it a desirable choice for restoring volume in the cheeks, midface, lower face (jowl), and chin areas. This special cross-linking also helps to avoid degradation, making Voluma™ last almost twice as long as other fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body that combines with the water in your skin and tissues to restore lost volume. When used as a facial filler, hyaluronic acid can even naturally stimulate collagen production in your skin. Similar to how a sponge absorbs water, its main function is to hold water, which gives facial skin its volume.
Hyaluronic acid is something like the body's own natural moisturizer. As people age and their skin is damaged due to exposure to environmental pollutants and UV light from the sun and other sources, the cells’ ability to produce vital hyaluronic acid diminishes. Due to this, the skin begins to lose moisture, causing the loss of volume, which can contribute to an aged, gaunt appearance, as well as the formation of facial wrinkles and folds.
Am I a good candidate for Voluma™?
Voluma™ is an excellent option for:
- Correction of age-related volume loss and facial contouring (such as cheeks, midface, chin, and jowl correction)
- Deep folds (correction around the mouth for “marionette lines” and nasolabial folds)
Candidates for Voluma™ may also be interested in other anti-aging, skin-tightening treatments such as Ultherapy®, as well as BOTOX® Cosmetic, which reduces wrinkles by relaxing muscles. Dr. Turner prides herself on outstanding patient care. She is very diligent about choosing appropriate candidates for each procedure and you can expect your consultation with her to be comfortable, informative and respectful. She will listen to your concerns and carefully evaluate you for this procedure and/or other appropriate interventions based on your clinical needs and personal preferences.

Is Voluma™ painful?
