Voluma is an injectable dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Voluma is uniquely formulated with extensive cross-linking, which provides an excellent lifting capacity. Dermatologist, Dr. Alex Khadavi uses Voluma at his practices to restore 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. Like 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 skin 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, which no one wants😝.
