Voluma is the latest filler from Allergan designed to be a thicker version of Juvederm and made up of hyaluronic acid. Voluma is almost like an injectable implant due to its viscosity. It is also said to last up to 2 years. Like other hyaluronic acid products, they can be reversed if necessary.
Voluma can be used in certain areas of the nose as a filler. Dr. Shah’s experience with fillers in the nose is that hyaluronic acid products integrate well with soft tissues and the structure of the nose when placed appropriately.
In addition, hyaluronic acid can be turned into collagen and in some locations can be turned into scar tissue in the nose. This can be advantageous to the patient when a shadow needs to be softened.
