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 significant 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 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. Dauwe, 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 over a few days.
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 Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area and are generally minor. During your consultation, ask Dr. Dauwe 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?
Your cost for a Voluma treatment will vary based on the amount of product that is required to meet your goals. Since Voluma can last as long as two years, you can look forward to long lasting results. Before your first treatment, Dr. Dauwe will evaluate your mid-face and understand your desires before making your personal treatment plan. Then, he will estimate how much Voluma will be used for your session to determine your costs.
What is hyaluronic acid?
HA (hyaluronic acid) is a substance found naturally in your skin and joints. One of its functions is to retain moisture and build volume in the skin and joints. Voluma, like other fillers in the Juvéderm family, is made with a synthetic hyaluronic acid. When the hyaluronic acid-based Voluma formula is injected, it restores fullness to your mid-face. The HA also improves your skin's ability to retain moisture so your complexion is healthier and softer.
How long do the results from Voluma last?
Ideally, Voluma results can 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 in the following month. You might want multiple Voluma injections, particularly if you are wanting to significantly increase the volume in your mid-face. In your initial consultation, Dr. Dauwe will create your personal Voluma plan and recommend when to schedule your next appointment to maintain your results.
Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
After a Voluma injection, you may resume your normal day. However, it's recommended that exercise and other strenuous activities be skipped for at least one day. Dr. Dauwe will talk about what you can do at home to make sure your results look great and last a long time. You might place a cold compress over the treatment area to minimize bruising and swelling. Dr. Dauwe might also recommend propping your head up with a few pillows while you sleep. You shouldn't touch your face to avoid pushing the filler into others areas.
What are the possible side effects of Voluma?
Many patients have mild swelling and bruising in and around the treatment area for up to one week. Other possible side effects are firmness, tenderness, lumps, bumps, discomfort, redness, and itching. If any of these happen, treatment side effects are typically mild and short-term. For any questions, reactions that last longer than one week, contact Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery.
