Am I a Good Candidate for VOLUMA Fillers?
VOLUMA is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that can help add contour and lift to your cheeks. Many patients notice decreased fullness of the apples of their cheeks as they age or after they have lost a large amount of weight. Some patients may have been born with thin cheeks and want treatment to enhance this area. Female patients who are nursing or pregnant should not get this injectable. VOLUMA by JUVÉDERM is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients 21 and older. Before treatment, you will have a consultation at Dermatology Center of Dallas to decide if VOLUMA is the best filler for you. Based on your cosmetic goals and medical history, a unique injectable treatment plan can then be formed.
Our Injection Technique
VOLUMA is ideal if you want to enhance volume in the mid-face, whether you have noticed flatter cheeks as you age or following significant weight loss, or you have naturally thin cheeks. When you come to our Dallas, TX office for your session, you will relax while your face is cleaned. Your injector will mark your face before administering the formula with a fine-gauge needle. After your injections, you may experience some swelling and redness, but this should subside in a few days. For most patients, the benefits of VOLUMA injections can be seen immediately and typically last around two years. As part of your customized treatment plan, our team will let you know how soon to plan your next appointment to refresh your results.
What should I expect after Voluma?
For many patients, the results of Voluma are visible right away and last around two years. It's rare to have severe or lasting side effects from Voluma injections, but if you do have concerns or a reaction, please call Dermatology Center of Dallas for assistance. The most common side effects are slight redness, irritation, or swelling of the treated area. These symptoms are usually extremely minor. Ask your injector about how soon to plan your next appointment to either increase or prolong the effects of Voluma.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that binds water to cells. One of its functions is to retain moisture and build volume in the skin. VOLUMA, like other fillers in the JUVÉDERM family, is made with a synthetic version of HA. When the VOLUMA hyaluronic acid-based formula is injected, it can restore fullness to your mid-face. The HA in VOLUMA also improves your skin's ability to hold moisture — so it's softer and healthier.
How long do the results from VOLUMA last?
VOLUMA results may last for as long as two years. Right away, you should be able to see improvements from your treatment, which should continue to get better over the next few weeks. You might need several VOLUMA injections, particularly if you want to build up significant volume in your mid-face. During your consultation, your injector will create your VOLUMA plan and recommend when to schedule your next appointment to achieve and sustain your goals.
What are the possible side effects of VOLUMA?
Some patients experience mild bruising and swelling in the injection areas for 2 – 4 weeks after their treatment. Other common temporary side effects include tenderness, firmness, lumps, discomfort, redness, discoloration, and itching. If they appear, treatment side effects are usually mild and short-term. If you have any questions, side effects that last longer than a month, or experience signs of an infection, contact the Dermatology Center of Dallas as soon as possible.
How much does VOLUMA cost?
Costs for a VOLUMA treatment can vary greatly based on the amount of product that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Since VOLUMA lasts as long as two years, you can focus on choosing a skilled injector, and you should not go anywhere offering knock-off or extremely cheap injections. Before your first injection, a staff member will assess your mid-face and understand your goals before making your custom treatment plan. After this, they can estimate the amount of VOLUMA that will be used for your treatment and its costs.
Is there any downtime needed after a VOLUMA treatment?
Following a VOLUMA treatment session, you can resume your normal activities. However, it's suggested that exercise and other strenuous activities be skipped for at least one day. Your injector will explain post-treatment instructions to ensure your results look great and last a long time. You may apply a cold compress on the treatment areas to reduce any swelling and bruising. Your injector might also recommend sleeping with your head propped up by a few pillows. You shouldn't touch your face to prevent pushing the filler into other areas.
Is the VOLUMA procedure painful?
While discomfort levels vary from person to person, most JUVÉDERM VOLUMA treatments involve the use of a local anesthetic or a numbing cream to minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
