Voluma is a nonsurgical treatment where a modified hyaluronic acid (made from a naturally occurring complex sugar) is injected under the skin in the cheek area to add volume, create lift and give you a natural more youthful appearance. Voluma is different from Juvederm in that it is a larger molecule that offers more structural support to provide lift in areas that are “sagging”. We use a topical numbing agent in addition to the one in the product to ensure your comfort during treatment. Treatment time is generally 45 minutes to an hour. Most individuals require 2 syringes for correction and results can last up to 2 years. Bruising and swelling are common side effects, so we recommend injections 2-4 weeks before important events.
