Voluma and Lyft dermal fillers are a new solution for men and women who want to restore the high cheekbones of their youth. As we age, the fat in the cheekbone loses volume due to a natural decrease in collagen and hyaluronic acid production, resulting in a thin or hollow appearance in the cheeks.
Voluma received FDA approval in October 2013 to restore lost volume to the mid-face area (cheeks and cheekbones). Voluma has been available in over 70 countries since 2009, where it is also used to increase volume to the chin.
Volume Is The Difference
Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft are a hyaluronic acid dermal filler like Juvederm and Restylane. What separates Voluma and Lyft from the other products is their density; they are a gel-like substance with a lower molecular weight. The thickness of the gel allows for deeper placement under the skin (other fillers are not able to accomplish this), thus achieving the look of full, high cheekbones.
Clinical trials revealed Voluma lasting up to two years, which is significantly longer than most hyaluronic acid fillers used for adding volume to cheeks. In the past, cheek augmentation surgery was performed to achieve the look of high cheekbones. Today, with new cheek fillers such as Voluma and Lyft, it is possible to accomplish the results of cheek augmentation without undergoing surgery. The Voluma or Lyft treatment is a quick in-office injection with minimal downtime and no anesthesia.
Voluma and Lyft are a hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally created by the body, so complications or reactions to the injection are low. Most side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, bruising, or itching which generally goes away within one week.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Voluma or Lyft Dermal Fillers?
Virtually anyone with volume loss in their mid-face is a candidate for treatment with Voluma or Lyft, as well as individuals with poorly defined cheekbones.
Baltimore patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s may not be appropriate candidates for surgery, but may benefit instead from Voluma or Lyft treatment. Patients in their 60s and beyond who have more significant skin laxity and volume loss tend to require more filler volume. And while these patients are often good candidates for surgery, they often choose volumizing filler treatments due to surgery concerns such as anesthesia and potential complications.
The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider Voluma or Lyft:
- Individuals with volume loss in their mid-face
- Individuals with poorly defined cheekbones
- Individuals who may not be candidates for facial plastic surgery
- Individuals with who have significant skin laxity and volume loss
- Individuals with marionette lines at the corners of the mouth
What To Expect From Your Voluma or Lyft Dermal Fillers Treatment?
For most patients, the effects of Voluma or Lyft injections are visible immediately and typically last around two years. It is unusual to experience severe or lasting side effects from Voluma or Lyft, but if you do have concerns or a reaction, please call Green Relief Health for assistance. Ask Dr. Lauren about when to make your next procedure to either increase or extend the results of Voluma or Lyft.
