Nowadays, reducing wrinkles and lines, and obtaining a younger look can be done with a wide variety of innovative dermal fillers. However, the problem with most facial fillers is that they only target wrinkles and creases, but not the loss of volume. If you’re looking to add some volume in the checks, then it’s time you learned more about the newest member of the Juvederm family – Voluma.
Voluma Reverses Aging More Effectively
Voluma is the first facial filler that takes on the more complex issue of aging: the loss of volume. More often than not, the vast majority of dermal fillers available on the market are designed as a one-dimensional solution for correcting aging signs. Although efficient, they mostly act at the surface of the skin and hence, are unable to do more than smoothen out wrinkles and creases.
Voluma is currently the only filler of its kind approved by the FDA for cheek enhancement. What makes Voluma stand out is its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Incorporating low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, Voluma can be considered a true multi-dimensional solution for facial rejuvenation.
The Advantages of Voluma
In addition to safety, Voluma also provides immediate, longer lasting results. A treatment with Voluma can last up to two years. No other dermal filler on the market can match the longevity of Voluma without a need for additional sessions. The main reason why Voluma provides such results comes from its composition. Not only does the VYCROSS technology mange to create a thicker filler, but the high-viscosity and molecular structure of the solution are both maintained when injected deeply into the skin. What this means is that Voluma has a higher ability of cross-linking and hence:
- It has a higher resistance to degradation due to free radicals
- It is easier to inject with minimum discomfort
- The results obtained can be predictable and reversed if necessary
- It provides an optimal, natural-looking lift of the facial contours
- Voluma is the ideal cheek filler.

Juvederm Voluma : FAQ
Juvederm Voluma is an HA-based dermal filler approved by the FDA. While it has been widely available in Europe and over 70 countries worldwide since 2005, Juvederm Voluma has grabbed the American public’s attention only recently, after it had been approved as the first and only filler to correct age-related cheek volume loss.
In the event that you’re not satisfied with the results, the HA filler can be easily dissolved with the help of an enzyme solution.
Voluma includes a small percentage of Lidocainecausing relatively minimal pain and discomfort from the injection. However, since the treatment implies utilizing very small needles, some patients report a moderate level of discomfort.
A treatment with Juvederm Voluma has no downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterwards.
Perhaps the most noticeable sign of facial aging is the loss of volume in the cheeks. While traditionally, this issue could only be resolved via surgery, recent advancements in the cosmetic industry have allowed volume restoration to be performed with dermal fillers. What makes Juvederm Voluma stand out in the crowd is its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. HA is a cross-linked, long chain of sugars with lifting capacities that minimizes skin degradation.
The physician will apply a topical anesthetic cream on the treatment spot 15 to 20 minutes before the injection. The treatment typically lasts between 15 minutes and half an hour because the physician will massage the cheek area to ensure an even distribution of the filler. Although results vary from patient to patient, the treatment lasts for approximately 2 years.
It is highly advisable to follow your physician’s recommendations to avoid the potential side effects associated with Juvederm Voluma. The reactions are usually mild to moderate, with possible swelling or bruising at the injection site. It is recommended to avoid makeup for 12 hours following the treatment.
Anyone experiencing volume loss in the mid-face section should discuss the possibility of a Juvederm Voluma treatment. Patients in their 30s or older are the ideal beneficiaries of the treatment.
