Juvéderm Voluma is a part of the Juvéderm family that is wonderful for adding volume to the mid-face region. If you experience volume loss in your face and cheeks, Voluma is perfect for you. As we age, our cheeks begin to naturally lose their volume, and the skin may begin to sag and droop. Voluma helps correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance, and helps contour the face.
The first of its kind, Voluma is a hyaluronic acid facial filler specifically made to restore age-related volume loss in the mid-face (the cheeks, cheekbones and around the chin). Voluma uses hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in your skin, to instantly restore lost facial volume in the cheeks and contour the chin. Voluma also combines with collagen and elastin to improve skin structure and elasticity, creating a smooth, natural look. The results are instant, natural looking and can last 18 to 24 months. Plus, there’s no downtime – most people resume normal activities immediately.
What are the results of Juvéderm Voluma?
The FDA approved Voluma can have lasting effects for up to two years, although results will depend on the individual patient. Voluma creates fullness in the cheeks, cheekbone, and chin areas in order to provide a full and youthful appearance.
What is a Juvéderm Voluma Treatment Like?
Voluma restoration treatments can be performed as an in-office, same day procedure. The short 15-minute treatment consists of locating optimal injection sites and the actual injection itself. Because Juvéderm Voluma gel contains lidocaine, no other anesthetic is necessary but a topical anesthetic can be applied to decrease your discomfort, if you like. You may feel a slight pinch as the micro-needle is inserted but the majority of patients do not have any issues. The numbing lidocaine solution helps keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure.
How long does Juvéderm Voluma results last?
Juvéderm Voluma is the only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area.
What to expect while recovering from Juvéderm Voluma injections?
You can return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. Some patients have no side effects, while others experience some minor bruising and swelling at the injection sites, which usually resolve within a few days. If you do end up with a bruise, we offer a complimentary laser treatment to help break up the bruise and clear it away faster.
