Juvederm Voluma™ is an FDA-approved injectable gel being offered by Johns Hopkins trained surgeons Dr. Ira Papel, Dr. Theda Kontis, and Dr. Emile Brown to smooth aging lines and add volume to the cheek area.
Voluma is an injectable filler that contains sterilized hyaluronic acid. It is designed to reduce wrinkles and folds in the mid and lower face as well as lift the cheeks. Voluma offers a nonsurgical solution to addressing signs of aging with no incisions or downtime needed. With approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, patients can feel safe having this substance injected under their skin tissue by a qualified and experienced surgeon.
Patients like the benefits from Voluma because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that everyone has in their body, but that decreases as we age.
- Restored volume to the cheeks for a lifted appearance
- Added volume under the eyes
- Smoothed out facial lines and folds
Those who have experienced facial volume loss with age or weight loss can benefit from Voluma. Flattened and sagging cheeks are common concerns associated with aging, but many are not ready for a surgical procedure like a facelift. These patients can benefit from Voluma to restore volume and give the cheeks a subtle, lifted appearance. Voluma can be used at the same time to fill in facial lines and folds in the mid and lower face as well.
Prior to treatment with Voluma, the skin will be cleansed and prepped with a topical anesthetic to ensure a comfortable treatment process. Voluma will then be placed under the skin using a very fine needle. A small amount may be placed into several points in the mid and lower face to ensure even, balanced volume. The injection process can take about 10-20 minutes to complete.
There is no required downtime after treatment with Voluma and patients can get right back to their regular routine. Some mild swelling, bruising, and redness can be expected for the first few hours. Results of Voluma can be experienced right away for smoother skin and improved volume in the cheeks. These results can last for up to two years before a touch-up session is needed.
Patients receive personalized attention during consultations from surgeons and office staff while their medical history is collected. A careful evaluation of a patient’s facial anatomy is required to understand the course of treatment required to reduce a patient’s folds and wrinkles, ensuring lasting results.
