Voluma is an injectable treatment belonging to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. This hyaluronic acid formula can effectively add volume to the cheeks and midface through a deep injection. Hyaluronic acid is an important substance in the skin that retains moisture, and Voluma uses a specific formulation that is thicker and more durable than other Juvéderm injectables, meaning it can last longer and provide more lift and contour to flat or sagging cheeks.
I was so happy with my experience and outcome as well. Dr. Shaddix has a calming manner (which I really needed), is so professional and really listened to what I wanted and the result is amazing and natural looking - very proportionate to my body just as I had hoped. I highly recommend him”Read Patient Reviews
The best way to determine how Voluma can benefit you is through a consultation with Dr. Shaddix. There are many injectable options available, and knowing your aesthetic goals and what you would like your results to look like can help Dr. Shaddix professionally recommend the right treatment for you, which can also include skin or surgical treatments. He can also ensure you understand what to expect during the treatment session and afterward, as well as answer any questions you may have.
Dr. Shaddix begins injectable treatments with a topical anesthetic for your comfort during the injection process. Voluma also includes another anesthetic, lidocaine, to ensure against discomfort as the product is placed under the skin. Dr. Shaddix then uses a very fine needle to place the gel deep under the skin of the cheeks to create lift and volume according to your face’s unique profile. This careful, artistic process can require multiple, small injections to create the intended shape and results. Dr. Shaddix can ensure you know how much product will be required during your consultation.
As with any injection, you can expect some bruising or swelling after your treatment session, which usually subsides within the day. Dr. Shaddix recommends that you massage the treatment area to help evenly distribute the product, but Voluma requires no downtime and you can return to your regular schedule immediately. Voluma lasts the longest of any Juvéderm injectables at up to two years, after which you can repeat the treatment or look at your other options for mid-face rejuvenation.
