am i a candidate for voluma?

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that is best for adding contour and lift to your cheeks. Many patients notice decreased volume of their cheeks as they get older or if they have lost a large amount of weight. Some patients may have been born with thin cheeks and want treatment to plump their face. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not get injectable treatments. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. You will have a consultation to determine if Voluma is the best choice for you. Based on your needs, goals, and medical history, a unique treatment plan will be formed.

how does voluma work?

Once you've had a consultation with Dr. Sosa, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In our minor procedures rooms, you will relax while your skin is cleansed before the injections. The injector can also apply a numbing cream to make the treatment less painful if desired. For precision, your injector will mark your face before administering the Voluma injections with a fine needle. After the Voluma has been applied, you may have some swelling and redness, but this typically subsides in a few days.

how long does voluma last?

For most patients, the effects of Voluma injections are visible immediately and typically last around two years. It is unusual to experience severe or lasting side effects from Voluma, but if you do have concerns or a reaction, please call Bloomfield Plastic Surgery for assistance. The most common side effects are slight redness, irritation, or swelling of the injection site. These symptoms are usually very minor. Ask your injector about when to make your next appointment to either increase or extend the results of Voluma.

Voluma FAQ

How much does VOLUMA cost?
Your cost for a VOLUMA treatment can vary based on how much product is required to achieve your aesthetic goals. Since VOLUMA lasts up to two years, you can concentrate on finding an experienced injector and you should not go anywhere offering knock-off or extremely cheap injections. Prior to your first treatment, a staff member will examine your mid-face and understand your needs before making your personal treatment plan. Then, they will discuss how much volume will be used for your session and costs.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance found naturally in your skin that binds water to cells. Along with other functions, it can retain moisture and build volume in the skin. Like other Juvéderm fillers, VOLUMA's main ingredient is a synthetic hyaluronic acid. When VOLUMA hyaluronic acid-based formula is injected, it restores volume to your cheeks and mid-face area. The HA also improves your skin's ability to retain moisture so it's healthier and softer compared to before your treatment.

How long do the results from VOLUMA last?
With optimal treatments, the results of VOLUMA can last for up to two years. Right away, you should be able to see improvements from your treatment, which will continue to get better in the next few weeks. You may need several VOLUMA injections, particularly if you are wanting to build up large amounts of volume in your mid-face. During your initial consultation, your injector will create your VOLUMA Voluma plan and recommend how often you should schedule treatments to achieve and sustain your goals.

Is there any downtime needed after a VOLUMA treatment?
Following a VOLUMA treatment, you may return to your normal activities. However, it is recommended that strenuous activities, like exercise, be skipped for at least one day after your treatment. Your injector will go over post-treatment instructions to make sure your results look great and last a long time. You might want to place a cold compress on the treatment sites to reduce any swelling and bruising. Your injector may also recommend propping your head up with a few pillows while you sleep. You shouldn't touch your face to avoid spreading the filler to unwanted areas.

Can I exercise after receiving JUVÉDERM VOLUMA injections?
While light physical activity is generally permissible after JUVÉDERM VOLUMA injections, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and activities that may increase blood flow to the face for the first 24 – 48 hours. This can help minimize swelling and reduce the risk of complications.

How should I care for my skin after receiving JUVÉDERM VOLUMA injections?
Following JUVÉDERM VOLUMA injections, it's essential to keep the treated area clean and avoid touching or rubbing it unnecessarily. Our team at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery may recommend using gentle skin care products and avoiding harsh chemicals or exfoliants for a few days post-treatment. Additionally, applying ice packs intermittently can help reduce swelling and discomfort.
