Many patients are looking for voluminous cheeks that help them appear youthful and healthy. From the top-selling Juvéderm collection of nonsurgical dermal fillers, Voluma is uniquely made to give lift and contour to the mid-face for a natural and more youthful look. We offer treatments of Voluma to address a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to age, genetics, or weight loss. Make an appointment to find out more about how Juvéderm Voluma nonsurgical treatments at Dunamis Aesthetics may boost your overall appearance by providing lift and fullness.
Voluma is an HA (hyaluronic acid) injectable filler that can help add lift and contour to your mid-face. Many people see decreased fullness of the apples of their cheeks when they age or after they have dropped a dramatic amount of weight. Other people have naturally hollow cheeks and are seeking treatment with Voluma to enhance their mid-face. Female patients who are nursing or pregnant are not eligible for Voluma injections. Voluma by Juvéderm is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for patients 21 years of age and older. You will complete a consultation to decide if Voluma is an effective filler for you. After considering your needs and cosmetic goals as well as medical history, a personalized injectable treatment plan will be developed.
After your consultation with Dr. Familua, your procedure may be planned for your next appointment or completed that day, based on schedule availability. In a private room, you will sit and relax as your cheek is cleaned to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the procedure more comfortable if requested. For accuracy, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before administering the injections with a fine-gauge needle. When the filler is injected, you may notice mild redness and swelling, but this usually subsides on its own.
For many patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments can be seen right away and may last about two years. It’s rare to develop lasting or severe reactions from Voluma injections, although if you do have questions, concerns, or a reaction, please contact Dunamis Aesthetics for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area. These cases are generally extremely minor. During your consultation, ask your injector about how soon to plan your next appointment to either build up or prolong the effects of Juvéderm Voluma.
