What makes Voluma® unique?

Voluma® in Melbourne, FLVoluma® is the first dermal injection approved by the FDA that specifically treats loss of skin volume in the cheeks and midsection of the face. Voluma® delivers hyaluronic acid, much like that produced by healthy skin cells naturally, that binds with water to help skin absorb and retain increased moisture. Voluma® creates a gradual augmentation of volume and fullness in the skin over time, creating a smoother, more contoured facial appearance.

How Does Voluma® Work?

Voluma® is injected directly into the skin using fine-gauge needles or micro-cannulas. Voluma® uses Vycross™ technology to deliver an extremely lightweight formula that allows for effective skin penetration, easily and precisely adding volume to the contours of the cheeks and face. This technique uses fewer injections and reduces any potential discomfort. Voluma® is unique in its ability to lift the skin around the injection site, diminishing wrinkles and fine lines around the whole treatment area.
