What is Voluma™?
Voluma™ is a minimally invasive dermal filler treatment that’s most commonly used to restore and rejuvenate the cheeks and the chin. As a part of the Juvederm® family, Voluma™ is also a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the skin responsible for bonding to water for a plump and healthy appearance, begins to deplete as we get older. Fillers like Voluma™ simply replace the hyaluronic acid we’re missing to enhance our natural features and reduce signs of aging. Voluma™ is specially formulated to be sturdy enough to add volume to your cheeks and chin, while still being thin and flexible enough to blend seamlessly with your facial expressions. Dr. Armstrong and her team may recommend Voluma™ treatments if you wish to contour your cheeks, contour your jawline, or reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mid-to-lower face.
What are the Benefits of Voluma™?
There are many benefits to receiving Voluma™, including:
- Minimally invasive cosmetic treatment
- No anesthesia, cutting, or scarring
- Adds volume to sunken or hollowed cheeks
- Improves projection and profile of the chin
- Contours the jawline
- No downtime or recovery period
What Can I Expect During my Voluma™ Treatment?
Your Voluma™ treatment will be performed by Dr. Jennifer Armstrong in our state-of-the-art facility. Before your Voluma™ injections begin, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Armstrong will begin carefully and strategically make a series of Voluma™ injections into your desired treatment area, typically around the lower and mid-face. The entire treatment process generally takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Voluma™ Treatment?
Like Juvederm®, Voluma™ is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that does not require any downtime or recovery period. While mild swelling, redness, and bruising are all normal, these side effects do subside on their own within a few days of treatment. Patients typically report returning to work and other daily activities immediately following treatment. The results of your Voluma™ treatment will be visible immediately, with ultimate results becoming visible about a week or two later once all swelling subsides. Voluma™ is one of the only dermal fillers to last up to two years, but Dr. Armstrong may recommend regular treatments every 12 to 18 months to maintain your desired look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Voluma™?
If you’re looking to reduce signs of aging around your lower face, enhance your natural features, or rejuvenate your cheek and chin areas, Voluma™ treatments may be right for you. Ideal candidates for Voluma™ are in general good health and have realistic expectations of their results. If you’re unsure whether Voluma™ is right for you, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Armstrong. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
