VOLUMA in Austin
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first FDA approved filler specifically formulated to enhance the cheeks while gently lifting the jowls to reveal a smoother jawline. This is a versatile and effective injectable designed for adults that are 21 and older, and are seeking a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment to restore facial fullness and volume.
Patients typically enjoy results that last for up to two years after treatment, with only minor touch-ups needed after this period to maintain results.
What Is VOLUMA?
As we age, skin sags and leads to hollowing of the cheeks to develop. VOLUMA is the first filler that is FDA approved and specifically formulated to enhance the cheeks by restoring age-related volume loss in the cheek area.
VOLUMA is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body which helps maintain volume and elasticity in the skin, and is proven to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks and cheekbones. This acid is responsible for transporting vital nutrients to your skin, increasing moisture levels, and maintaining strength and elasticity of your skin. Since your body makes less of hyaluronic acid as you get older, it causes you to lose structure and volume.
Most fillers are typically injected into the nasolabial folds like your laugh lines, but VOLUMA goes deeper and is applied to the top of the cheekbones, allowing physicians to reverse the signs of aging by restoring lost volume and lifting the face.
Is VOLUMA Right for Me?
VOLUMA is intended for adults who are age 21 and over, and was designed for patients who are seeking a non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment to restore facial fullness and volume. VOLUMA is a safe and effective treatment for patients experiencing volume loss in their midface area, as well as individuals with poorly defined cheekbones.
If you suffer from severe allergies or are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins, you should not receive Volbella treatments. You Vitalogy Skincare Provider will give you a full examination to determine if it is safe for you to receive VOLUMA treatment.
What Results Can I Expect With VOLUMA?
Immediately after your VOLUMA treatment, you can expect an increase in facial volume and fullness and a gentle lift of sagging skin around the cheek area. Patients enjoy replenished facial fullness, regained youthful contours, and restoration of volume and shape to their cheeks.
Results vary for each patient, but typically VOLUMA fillers last up to two years after receiving injections, and you will only require touch-up treatments after this time for maintenance.
What Should I Expect With VOLUMA?
A Vitalogy Skincare Provider will have an in-depth consultation with you to understand your concerns, goals, and determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs. The number of injections required to achieve your desired results will be determined by your provider.
During preparation, we will begin by cleaning and preparing your targeted area. VOLUMA injections can typically be completed in a 30- to 60-minute office procedure. During the procedure, the JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is administered to your cheek area using a fine needle by a Specialist, who may use their fingers to massage the treatment area to ensure even distribution. Ice may also be applied to the treatment area to reduce swelling and redness.
After your treatment, you will be provided with post-care instructions and should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.
Does VOLUMA Have Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects with Voluma are swelling, bruising, temporary redness, lumps, and tenderness. These are all temporary responses that generally only last two to four weeks.
Is There Any Downtime with VOLUMA?
Recovery time is minimal, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities after the procedure. However, we do not recommend intense exercise or sun exposure within the first 24 hours after treatment. Aftercare is also very simple and will be discussed with you during your consultation.
