Many of our loyal Juvéderm patients have experienced the stunning beauty of fuller skin that is brought forth by our dermal fillers at SkinMD. From the award-winning Juvéderm collection of nonsurgical dermal fillers, we recommend trying Voluma for the mid-face. The formula of Voluma is uniquely designed to give elevation and contour to the mid-face for a younger look. At our offices in Hurst, TX, we offer Voluma to improve deep age lines or sunken cheeks that are hollow and flat due to age, genetics, or weight loss. Giving you improvements that are visible for as long as two years, Voluma is a dermal filler with hyaluronic acid (HA) to support your facial skin to feel softer and look smoother. Make an appointment to find out more about how Voluma nonsurgical treatments at SkinMD may refresh your overall appearance by increasing lift and fullness.
Voluma is an HA (hyaluronic acid) dermal 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 large amount of weight. Other people have been born with thin cheeks and want treatment with Voluma to enhance their face. Female patients who are nursing or pregnant should not get injectable treatments. 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, goals, and medical history, a unique injectable treatment plan will be formed.
"Best experience I've had with a dermatologist in 16 years of needing skin cancer care. Dr. Xia is considerate and caring to a patient's needs. He performed a long, complicated MOHS surgery on my forehead. I was not new to MOHS, this was my third. The first was performed by a surgeon in another city and nothing about that experience left me willing to be proactive about my dermatology care. My follow-up appointments with Dr. Xia by comparison have been pleasant and helpful, which makes me a more compliant patient. As his patient, I felt listened to because he shows genuine concern for what you're asking or feeling unsure about. I'm very thankful to have had Dr. Xia as my surgeon and my follow-up dermatologist."- K.G. / Healthgrades / Nov 14, 2019

After your consultation at SkinMD for Voluma, your procedure may be planned for your next appointment or completed that day, based on schedule availability. In a private room, you will relax as your skin is cleaned to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the treatment more comfortable if desired. For accuracy, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before administering the Voluma injections with a fine-gauge needle. After the filler is applied, you may have mild redness and swelling, but this typically subsides in a few days.
What to Expect
For many patients, the effects of Voluma injections can be seen right away and typically last around two years. It's unusual to experience lasting or severe reactions from Voluma, but if you do have concerns or a reaction, please contact SkinMD for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area. These cases are usually extremely minor. Ask your injector about how soon to make your next procedure to either increase or prolong the effects of Juvéderm Voluma.
Some patients have some swelling and bruising in and around the treatment areas for up to one month. Other possible side effects are firmness, tenderness, bumps, discomfort, redness, and itching. If any of these appear, injection side effects are typically mild or moderate. For any questions, lasting side effects, or you have symptoms of an infection, contact SkinMD.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Voluma cost?
Costs for a Voluma treatment will vary based on the amount of product that is used to match your aesthetic goals. Since Voluma can last as long as two years, you can concentrate on selecting a skilled injector and you should not go anywhere that offers knock-off or extremely cheap fillers. Before your first treatment, a staff member will examine your face and understand your goals before creating your treatment plan. Then, they will estimate how much Voluma will be used for your session and costs. Also, you can ask about our Brilliant Distinctions Program where you can earn points for each qualifying treatment to redeem at a later date for specials on future treatments.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance found naturally in your skin that binds water to cells. HA's main functions are to hold moisture and build volume in the skin. 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 lifts the contour of your cheeks. The HA also improves your skin's ability to retain moisture so naturally looks and feels 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 would like to significantly increase the volume in your mid-face. In your initial consultation, your injector will create your personal Voluma plan and suggest when to schedule your next appointment to maintain your results.
Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
After a Voluma treatment, you may resume your normal activities. However, it's recommended that exercise and other strenuous activities be skipped for at least one day. Your injector will explain 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 areas to minimize bruising and swelling. Your injector might also recommend propping your head up with a few pillows while your sleep. You should not touch your face unnecessarily to avoid pushing the filler into other areas.
