The Voluma® Difference
JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC is a non-surgical, minimally invasive dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid. However, unlike most dermal fillers, it does not fill lines and wrinkles. Instead, Voluma® adds volume under the surface of the skin to lift and contour the cheeks. Voluma® is formulated with VYCROSS™ technology to provide more lift and longer lasting results. It is the only FDA-approved dermal filler to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area.
Who is a Candidate for Voluma®?
Anyone over the age of 21 with a loss of cheek volume or those with poorly defined cheekbones may be a candidate for this dermal filler. Voluma® is most commonly used in patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who have lost volume in their cheeks as they have aged. Patients in their 60s or older, or those with significant volume loss, may require additional filler to achieve their desired results. Voluma® is an excellent alternative for patients who do not qualify for surgery, or for those who prefer a non-surgical treatment with fewer risks and downtime.
Voluma® adds immediate, long-lasting volume to the cheeks for a subtle lift and a more youthful appearance.
What to Expect with Voluma® Treatment
During your initial consultation with Dr. Galitzin, he will discuss your cosmetic goals with you and evaluate the treatment area to ensure you are a good candidate for Voluma®. Our injectable treatments are relatively painless; however, if you are concerned about pain or discomfort, a numbing cream can be applied prior to your treatment. Voluma® injections are performed by Dr. Galitzin in our office and take about 30 minutes to complete. A flexible cannula is used to inject Voluma®, which minimizes pain and bruising.
You will be able to return to your normal activities within 24 hours of your treatment. You may experience some tenderness, swelling, redness, bruising, or itching, but this will subside within two weeks.
Benefits of Voluma®
Voluma® adds immediate, long-lasting volume to the cheeks for a subtle lift and a more youthful appearance. Results last up to two years, which is much longer than most dermal fillers. Additionally, patients typically require less filler when they return for their retreatment. With Dr. Galitzin’s expertise and the flexible cannula, our patients experience minimal discomfort and very little, if any, downtime. Voluma® is currently the only FDA-approved dermal filler specifically designed for the cheeks, making it a safe alternative to surgery.
