What Is Juvéderm® Voluma™?
Voluma can restore volume and provide contouring while smoothing wrinkles. It’s the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler designed to treat volume loss and provide lift in the midface, cheeks, and chin.
Where Is Voluma™ Used?
Voluma has a very specific recommendation for deep injection in the mid face and cheek areas. It’s also suitable for adding definition to the jawline. It should not be used under the eyes, in the lips or in the lines between the nose and mouth.
What Are the Benefits of Using Juvéderm® Voluma™?
Voluma™ works well for filling lines, but it can also restore volume and provide a lift that can last up to two years with optimal treatment.
What Are the Risks of Using Voluma™?
Injections may cause temporary side effects at and around the treatment site, such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, pain, redness, discoloration and itching.
How Long Do the Anti-Aging Effects of Voluma™ Last?
Clinically proven results can last for up to two years.
Is There Any Downtime from Voluma™ Injections?
Typically, dermal filler injections don’t require what is traditionally considered recovery time. You may experience some redness and bruising at the injection sites, but actual downtime is rarely necessary. Minimal temporary side effects from Voluma™ injections may last from one to three weeks.
Do people who inject Voluma™ undergo any special training or need to know specific techniques?
Juvéderm® Voluma™ treatment providers are required to have advanced training from maker Allergan Cosmetics; however, be aware that some providers inject without the proper training and experience.
Can you combine Voluma™ with other treatments?
Many times combining Juvéderm® Voluma™ with other non-invasive treatments can provide an enhanced outcome. For example:
- Adding Botox injections can further soften wrinkles and folds to improve facial appearance.
- Adding a facial resurfacing procedure (laser or chemical peel) can boost the effects of filler injections.
How Is the Recovery?
You may experience some redness, bruising and soreness at and near the injection sites. Juvéderm® Voluma™ is injected with special needles (blunt tip cannulas), helping most patients return to their normal activities immediately.
Can Voluma™ Be Removed If I Don’t Like the Results?
Juvéderm® and Juvéderm® Voluma™ can be dissolved with an injection of an enzyme called Hyaluranidase.
How Long Does the Treatment Usually Take?
Most treatment sessions take only about 30 minutes.
