As we age, our cheeks can begin to sag and lose their youthful volume, creating an older, weathered appearance. In these cases, Voluma offers the perfect non-surgical solution – instantly restoring lost volume and creating beautiful, sculpted cheekbones that ensure you look as young and vibrant as you feel.
What is Voluma?
Juverderm Voluma is an FDA-approved injectable gel that adds volume your cheeks, providing a natural lift and a youthful contour that lasts up to two years.
The active ingredient in Voluma is hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that nourishes and replenishes elasticity and collagen. The medicine works by providing intense hydration from within and restoring the cheek volume you’ve lost due to the natural aging process. In this way, Voluma firms and lifts the skin and restores any hollow areas.
How is Voluma different from other dermal fillers?
Voluma is different from other dermal fillers in a number of ways. To begin, it was designed specifically to restore volume to the cheeks. This is important because one of the earliest signs of aging is volume loss in that area due to fat and bone absorption, which results in sagging skin and a hollow appearance that gradually increases over time.
In addition, the results of Voluma are proven to last for up to two years. This is significantly longer than other available hyaluronic acid-based fillers, and is particularly appealing to patients who dislike frequent maintenance visits.
What can I expect during my Voluma treatment?
Voluma is a quick, 30-minute procedure that yields incredible and immediate cosmetic results. It is not painful, and at most patients report feeling minimal discomfort during the treatment process. However, if you have a low threshold for pain or prefer to numb the skin, we will apply an anesthetic to the treatment area to ensure your comfort.
During the procedure, Voluma will be injected into the cheek area using tiny needles and microcannulas to ensure a natural look. The number of injections will vary depending on a variety of factors, including the extent of your volume loss and the size of the area being treated.
After your Voluma injections, there is virtually no downtime and you will be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately. In terms of side effects, some swelling, stinging, bleeding, bruising and itching is to be expected, though it should resolve on its own rather quickly. You are advised to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol, as well as excessive sun or heat exposure for the first 24 hours to ensure an optimal outcome.
The results of your Voluma treatment will be immediately apparent and should last up to two years, with more prominent cheekbones, a subtle lift and beautiful, defined contours. And, thanks to our reputation for delivering among the best Voluma Inland Empire has to offer, your entire face will also appear soft, youthful and extremely natural – never overdone.
