Juvederm Voluma is a filler designed to lift and revolumize the cheeks. When the cheek is refilled and elevated, deep smile lines, nasolabial folds, and jowls can be improved as well. In addition, the muscles around the eyes can be supported to help the eyes appear more open and rested. Other areas that can be treated with Voluma are the temples, jaw line, hands, and areas of deep tissue loss on the face. Following a detailed consultation with your doctor, numbing cream or ice packs can be placed on the areas to be treated to minimize discomfort. The skin is then cleansed and prepped. The procedure lasts between 10-30 minutes and is well tolerated. Following the procedure, ice packs can be placed on the treated areas to minimize bruising. Avoiding strenuous exercise, heat, and sun can also decrease the risk of swelling and bruising following your procedure. Voluma is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a gel holding water in the skin.
