VOLUMA™, with its special VYCROSS technology is a hyaluronic acid product with superior lift, that is injected over the cheek bone to lift the cheek to restore lost volume, to re-contour and to refill cheeks flattened by aging. One or two sessions are all that is needed for fuller cheeks that can that last for up to two years.
Side Effects observed during the clinical trial included mild-to-moderate tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps and bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching that lasted for up to a few weeks.
VOLUMA™ is the best alternative to facial fat injections, as it is non surgical and long lasting. Specifically designed for mid face and cheek enhancement, VOLUMA™ instantly adds cheek volume, lift and recontours the cheek, without surgery or down time.
Dr. Binstock is excited to offer the VOLUMA™ solution. He has extensive facial re-voluminization experience, and has been performing facial fat injections for more than 20 years, as well as using Juvederm Ultra, Restylane, Sculptra, and Radiesse for facial rejuvenation.
Aesthetic Dermatology and Dr. Binstock are pleased to offer VOLUMA™, the new FDA approved solution for simple long-lasting cheek lifting and mid face countering.
