Voluma in Jersey City, NJ
As people age, they tend to lose volume or plumpness in their face. This is largely due to hyaluronic acid depletion. Fortunately, a cosmetic treatment has been developed to rectify this condition. Voluma™ is a cosmetic product that can restore hyaluronic acid levels in the skin, leading to a fuller and more youthful appearance. Dr. Zbigniew Moszczynski is a renowned specialist who provides Voluma™ treatments for people living in Bayonne and the neighboring communities in New Jersey.
What is Voluma™?
Voluma™ is a cosmetic product that is the first of its kind to be approved by the FDA for correcting facial volume loss. This filler is made from hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is produced naturally by your body. It has the special property of attracting a large volume of water molecules, which generates a volumizing effect to your skin. As we age, our bodies produce less of this substance, leading to the appearance of sagging skin.
This deficiency can be largely corrected by injecting Voluma™, which contains hyaluronic acid, into the skin to restore lost volume and reverse the appearance of aging.
How is Voluma™ Used?
Voluma™ can enhance the fullness of facial areas such as the cheeks and jawline. It helps correct damage due to aging for those who are at least 21 years old. Voluma™ is injected into the cheekbones, lending a youthful, natural appearance to the skin. Tiny needles are used to minimize discomfort and bruising.
How does Voluma™ Differ from Other Dermal Fillers?
Voluma™ is a filler that uses a gel to lend fullness to facial areas that have lost volume over the years. Vycross™ is an advanced technology that involves the use of a unique molecular structure, and is used to create Voluma™. Vycross™ results in products that provide smoother, more natural-looking results that also last longer than those provided by other fillers.
This lightweight formula easily passes through the skin’s surface to reshape facial contours. These firming and lifting capabilities are unique to Voluma™.
Why is Voluma™ Used Instead of a Wrinkle Filler?
Most people tend to think of wrinkle treatments when thinking of cosmetic fillers. These fillers do offer very good results but are inferior to Voluma™ because this product helps lift the skin around the treatment site.
A Voluma™ treatment means there is less of a need to fill in fine lines and wrinkles in surrounding areas of the face. The effectiveness of Voluma™ also means that patients need fewer treatments, resulting in less expense.
What is the Minimum Age for Treatment?
Voluma™ has been approved by the FDA for treating patients who are at least 21 years old. Voluma™ can create a softer appearance for those exhibiting early signs of aging.
Do Results Vary Depending Upon the Patient’s Age?
Results do vary. Although any age group may benefit from Voluma™, patients who are younger often see more dramatic results if they have lost volume in their cheeks. The natural bodily changes produced by the aging process are greater for smokers, those with sun damage, or people who have lost a great deal of weight. More filler may be needed for individuals in these types of situations. Patients who previously had other filler treatments tend to be more impressed with the effects of Voluma™.
Is Voluma™ Effective for all Skin Types?
Yes, Voluma™ is effective for all types of skin. Although those with darker skin usually have fewer wrinkles, everyone develops them eventually. Those with darker skin often see premature aging involving sagging skin at the apex of the cheeks. The cheek apex is correlated with a more youthful appearance. Voluma™ can enhance the cheeks, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Can Men be Treated With Voluma™?
Yes. However, the treatment may differ from those used by women.
How Long Will Treatment Take?
This will depend upon the nature of the treatment, the amount of detail involved, and the amount of Voluma™ used. Simple procedures usually last around 20 minutes. More detailed procedures take longer.
What are Micro-Cannulas? How do They Work?
Micro-cannulas are devices that are long, flexible and resemble needles. They have blunt tips with a hole containing the filler. Because cannulas cannot penetrate the skin by themselves, the doctor inserts them through a hole created by a needle. This procedure requires fewer injections. It also minimizes any pain, bruising, and discomfort that the patient may experience.
Can Voluma™ be Combined with Other Anti-Aging Treatments?
Yes, Voluma™ can be combined with other facial anti-aging treatments. Skin that has been severely damaged by sun exposure, or thin, collagen-depleted skin may also respond well to fractional laser treatments. Those who have prominent facial spider veins may benefit from blood vessel laser treatment as well.
Expressive faces tend to develop lines more easily than others. Botox® is an effective treatment for this condition. The combination of Botox® and Voluma™ can multiply the overall effect. Botox® and Juvederm® may also help with sagging skin around the eyes.
How Soon Can I Resume my Normal Activities?
Patients usually notice natural-looking results immediately following their procedure. Since it is non-invasive, most people can resume their daily activities immediately following treatment.
How often can I Get Voluma™?
Another treatment will not be necessary for another two years because Voluma™ is a long-lasting treatment. If you do decide you need more volume after your first treatment, a touch-up can be performed. However, you should avoid over-injecting the lips or cheeks, because the goal is a completely natural look. Since Voluma™ is more effective than other treatments, less filler is required.
How much does Voluma™ Cost?
The cost of Voluma™ depends upon many factors that are unique to your individual needs. The expense of your procedure is best discussed during your initial consultation. Vein and Skin Studio will accept payment using cash, check, or credit card. Financing options are also available through CareCredit®.
