As we hit middle age, loss of facial fat and collagen tends to give our cheeks a hollowed, drawn or tired appearance. Luckily, Allergan (manufacturer of anti-aging injectables including Botox and Juvederm) has created a miraculous soft tissue filler called Voluma—the first FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area.
Voluma injections are in high demand because it’s a much cheaper, faster and less invasive alternative to plastic surgery. It’s also is an ideal out-of-pocket cosmetic treatment to offer patients of several age groups, including clients in their 20s with poorly-defined cheekbones, clients in their 30s and 40s with noticeable volume loss who desire understated rejuvenation, and those in the 50s, 60s and beyond who want a more youthful look but have concerns about plastic surgery.
Voluma’s consistency is thicker and more viscous than Juvederm, making it perfect for cheeks. The experienced injector can gently mold it once injected to yield the most natural-looking result, and the client doesn’t need to worry about getting a “pillow face” (overly-plumped cheeks caused by too much filler) because Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Voluma adds a subtle, non-surgical lift to the cheeks that leaves patients looking instantly refreshed—not puffy. And while you’re not actually injecting Voluma into the nasolabial folds, by adding more volume to the cheeks, the lower face is also “lifted”, thereby giving a more youthful overall facial appearance. And even better? Because of its viscosity, Juvederm lasts nearly twice as long as other fillers—up to two years.
If you need more proof, consider this: in 2014, there were more than 2.3 million soft filler cosmetic injections and that number continues to rapidly climb. Medical professionals wishing to get Voluma injection training (and training in many other dermal fillers) as well as Botox may do so in as little as three or five days at National Laser Institute. Leading industry professionals will show you everything you need to know about to expand your services with Voluma training.
