During the aging process, we naturally loss facial volume and skin elasticity. Besides seeing lines and wrinkles, you may start to notice a loss of volume in your cheeks, which can give your face a sagging, sunken appearance. Although there are many dermal fillers on the market that can restore and rejuvenate facial volume, Juvederm Voluma is the first and only filler approved to enhance cheek volume creating a fuller, youthful appearance.

How Does Juvederm Voluma Work?
Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, a component made by the body naturally that maintains skin’s elasticity, strength, and moisture levels. As we get older, our body makes less hyaluronic acid, causing us to lose structure and volume. Juvederm Voluma is designed to counteract aging by restoring levels of hyaluronic acid. This helps to add tissue volume and structure your cheeks, restoring the youthful contour and shape to your face.
How is Voluma Performed?
During a Juvederm Voluma treatment session, which should take less than 30 minutes, your provider will make a series of injections to your cheek area. To ensure Voluma is evenly distributed, the provider may gently massage the treatment area. The number of injections required to achieve optimal results will be determined by the provider. After treatment, ice may be applied to reduce swelling and redness. Since Juvederm Voluma includes an anesthetic called lidocaine, most people experience only mild discomfort.
When Will I See Results?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect an increase in facial volume and fullness, and a gentle lifting of sagging skin around the cheek area. Since it is normal to experience some facial swelling around the treatment area, it may take up to two weeks for you to see full results. The results from Juvederm Voluma last up to two years, and you will only require touch-up treatments after this time to maintain your youthful contours.
Will I Experience Any Side Effects?
Juvederm Voluma has a very low risk of moderate side effects. Side effects can include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, lumps, and tenderness at the injection site. These issues will resolve over time and should dissipate within a month. In extremely rare cases, vision problems or allergic reactions have occurred after receiving Juvederm Voluma injections. However, a full medical history and examination by our medically-licensed provider will help prevent the more serious, but rare, side-effects.
