About Voluma

While hollow cheeks were popular in the 90s, classic beauty calls for voluminous cheeks that help you 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. At our Leesburg, VA office, plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Chang offers treatments of Voluma to address a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to weight loss, genetics, or age. Make an appointment to find out more about how Juvéderm Voluma injectable treatments at Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center may boost your overall appearance by providing lift and fullness.

Ideal Candidates

Voluma is an HA (hyaluronic acid) injectable filler that can help add lift and contour to your mid-face. Many people see the 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 and older. You will undergo 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.

Procedure Technique

After your consultation with Dr. Chang, 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. Local anesthesia may be provided 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.

What to Expect

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 Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Voluma cost?
The price of a Voluma treatment can vary greatly depending on how much of the filler is needed to create your desired appearance. The more volume that is needed to be replaced with the filler, the higher the cost will be. Prior to your treatment, we will discuss the cost of your treatment based on your specific needs.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that works to bind water to cells. Along with other functions, it can secure moisture and create fullness in the skin. When injected into the skin, such as with Voluma, it can restore volume to the cheeks and mid-face area.

How long do the results last?
Most patients are able to see the results of a Voluma treatment immediately. In other cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to see optimal results. The duration of the results is dependent on the area being treated and the rate at which the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler, but results can last up to two years.

Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
Following a Voluma treatment session, patients are able to return to their normal daily activities. However, it is suggested that strenuous activities be avoided for the first 24 hours after treatment. Any additional aftercare instructions will be provided to you by your injector.

Will I need additional treatments?
For some patients, they may need multiple Voluma treatments to gain the results they want. This is typical for patients who need a larger amount of volume replacement. During your initial assessment, we will be able to create a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve your desired outcome.
