Voluma (a product of the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that can lift and contour your mid-face. Uniquely made to give lift and contour to the mid-face, Voluma will look natural after our primary care and board-certified family medicine physician, Dr. May Kim, injects it. She offers treatments of Voluma to assuage a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to age, weight loss, or genetics.
Your facial fullness improvements will be visible for two years. Voluma is not only formulated to recontour your facial features, but it will also stimulate collagen production. Make an appointment to find out more about how Voluma treatments at Family Center VitaleHEALTH may help your overall appearance by providing a boost to your facial skin.
After considering your needs, cosmetic goals, and medical history, Dr. Kim will decide if you are a great candidate for Voluma injections. She will select the appropriate dosage of Voluma for your exclusive treatment plan.
Aging men and women alike can have a decreased fullness in the apples of their cheeks or after they have dropped a dramatic amount of weight. While others have naturally hollow cheeks, they too may seek treatment with Voluma to enhance the mid-face. Voluma is only approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients 21 years old and older.
After your consultation with Dr. Kim, your Voluma injections may be planned for a future appointment or completed that day. In a private room, you will sit and relax as your cheeks are cleansed to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the procedure more comfortable if requested.
For accuracy, Dr. Kim will take a washable marker to make points on your facial skin where she intends to place the Voluma using a fine-gauge needle. Once the filler is injected, you may notice your skin's response: temporary redness and slight swelling.
What to Expect
For many patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments can be seen right away and may last about two years. It's rare to develop lasting or severe reactions from Voluma injections, although if you do have questions, concerns, or a reaction, please contact Family Center VitaleHEALTH for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area. These cases are generally minor. During your consultation, ask Dr. Kim about how soon to plan your next appointment to either build up or prolong the effects of Voluma.
