Voluma® Injections

Voluma® can help create a youthful-looking appearance by lifting and shaping your cheeks. With age, you may notice that your cheeks begin to lose volume, resulting in a hollowed-out appearance. This loss of volume in the cheeks often occurs as a result of lost hyaluronic acid and can even make you look older than you actually are. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we can help you achieve refreshed, natural-looking facial contours with Voluma®.

What Is Voluma®?

Juvéderm Voluma® XC is a cosmetic injectable that can help volumize your facial features by contouring and shaping your cheeks. Voluma® is FDA-approved and comprised of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring acid found in your body that retains water, helping to create a fuller, youthful-looking appearance. Your body’s production of hyaluronic acid begins to slow with age, causing you to lose volume and shape in your cheeks. Hollowed cheeks appear flat and can give you an older-looking appearance, but the hyaluronic acid in Voluma® is designed to act just like your body’s natural hyaluronic acid.

When Voluma® is injected into your cheeks, the hyaluronic acid begins to retain water, creating a fuller facial shape and appearance. Voluma® is a firmer cosmetic gel than other dermal fillers, which makes it ideal for being injected into the deepest layers of your skin and muscle, promoting a firm foundation to your cheeks and a more voluminous appearance. Voluma® injections are performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to return home after your Voluma® treatment. Because Voluma® is a non-invasive hollowed cheek treatment, you will be able to return to your normal activities almost immediately. The majority of patients experience little to no downtime after receiving Voluma® injections. Voluma® is a long-lasting cosmetic injectable that can provide beautifully contoured, full cheeks for up to 2 years.

What Can I Expect Before My Voluma® Treatment?

Your Voluma® consultation will begin with an evaluation of your cheeks to determine the number of Voluma® injections you may require for voluminous results. Voluma® contains lidocaine, which can reduce some discomfort when recovering from Voluma® injections. If you have an allergy to lidocaine or any components of Voluma®, you will not be able to receive Voluma® injections. Ideal Voluma® candidates are looking to restore volume and shape to sunken or hollowed cheeks.

What Can I Expect After My Voluma® Treatment?

Common Voluma® side effects include bruising, swelling, or discomfort at the injection sites. These symptoms are your body’s normal reaction to Voluma® and will continue to fade in the days and weeks following your Voluma® treatment. While Voluma® is a long-lasting cosmetic filler, continuing Voluma® treatments may be necessary to maintain Voluma® results.

The Importance Of Choosing A Highly Experienced Voluma® Doctor

It is important that you choose a skilled Voluma® doctor who understands your individual anatomy, as every patient’s facial structure is different. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering Voluma®.
