Dr. Brown and I were talking about what one thing on a model’s face makes them look so beautiful and youthful. She flipped through a magazine with me and circled the cheekbone area over and over again. She literally took her pencil and circled the fullness around the cheekbone and it was identical in all the pictures. We were discussing how many patients (including myself) who want more and more filler so we can have that youthful appearance. In actuality, there’s one sweet spot on the face that can make all the difference in the world…..the cheekbones.
Here’s where Voluma comes in. This product is truly a wonder in its field. Voluma, which is made of similar properties as Juvederm, has a patented “VYCROSS” technology that changes the gel so that it lifts better, and lasts longer (hello, up to 2 YEARS!!). In a matter of 30 minutes, Dr. Brown made my very asymmetrical face almost perfectly symmetrical, just by creating volume in my cheek area. And being the neurotic patient that I am, I didn’t want to look drastically different but just more youthful. I should know by now that Dr. Brown is the Queen of natural looking injections.
In the research conducted, women felt they looked 3-5 years younger after getting VOLUMA. And 75% of women were still satisfied after 2 years, which is a good average of how long VOLUMA lasts!
The injection process was pretty painless. Voluma has the same wonderful lidocaine as Juvederm, so once Dr. Brown used a little ice in the area, I was good to go. And for someone who bruises easily I didn’t bruise at all* What I think was most impressive about Voluma is that it not only gave me natural volume in my cheeks, but it also improved the eye area. I was debating getting filler for my tear troughs but after Voluma was injected, it actually lifted the folds under my eyes, giving me a brighter look.
I cannot encourage you enough to call Christie today and set up a free consultation with Dr. Brown. We all know Dr. Brown shoots from the hip so if Voluma is not a perfect treatment for you, Dr. Brown will let you know. It’s so worth finding out!
*Bruising will vary from patient to patient as well as the number of syringes needed to fill in the cheek area.
