About Voluma

While flat, gaunt cheeks may have been 90s chic, modern beauty calls for voluminous cheeks that make you look healthy and youthful. Part of the top-selling Juvéderm family of injectable wrinkle fillers, Voluma is specially made to add contour and lift to the cheeks for a natural and more youthful appearance. At our Newport Beach, CA office, plastic surgeon Dr. Karen Leong performs injections of Voluma to address sunken cheeks that are disproportionate to the rest of the face and/or hollow due to age, weight loss, or genetics. Schedule a consultation at our Newport Beach facility to discover how Voluma treatments at our practice can boost your appearance by providing fullness and lift.

Ideal Candidates

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable filler that is best for adding contour and lift to your cheeks. Many patients notice decreased volume of their cheeks as they get older or if they have lost a dramatic amount of weight. Some patients may have naturally hollow cheeks and are seeking treatment to plump their mid-face. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for Voluma injections. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. You will have a consultation to determine if Voluma is the best choice for you. Based on your needs and cosmetic goals as well as medical history, a personalized treatment plan will be developed.

Procedure Technique

Once you've had a consultation with Dr. Leong, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In our minor procedures rooms, you will sit and relax while your cheek is cleansed before the injections. The injector can also apply a numbing cream to make the procedure less uncomfortable if requested. For precision, your Voluma injector will mark your face before administering the injections with a fine needle. When the Voluma has been injected, you may notice some swelling and redness, but this usually subsides on its own. You can go about your day as normal.

What to Expect

For most patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments are visible immediately and may last about two years. It is rare to develop severe or lasting side effects from Voluma injections, although if you do have questions, concerns, or a reaction, please call Dr. Leong for assistance. The most common side effects are slight redness, irritation, or swelling of the injection site. These symptoms are generally very minor. During your consultation, ask your injector about when to plan your next appointment to either build up or extend the results of Voluma.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Voluma cost?
The price of a Voluma treatment can vary greatly depending on how much of the filler is needed to create your wanted appearance. The more volume that is needed to be replaced with the filler, the higher the cost will be. Prior to your treatment, we will discuss the cost of your treatment based on your specific needs.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that works to bind water to cells. Along with other functions, it can secure moisture and create fullness in the skin. When injected into the skin, such as with Voluma, it can restore volume to the cheeks and mid-face area.

How long do the results last?
Most patients are able to see the results of a Voluma treatment immediately. In other cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to see optimal results. The duration of the results is dependent on the area being treated and the rate of which the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler, but results can last up to two years.

Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
Following a Voluma treatment session, patients are able to return to their normal daily activities. However, it is suggested that strenuous activities be avoided for the first 24 hours after treatment. Any additional aftercare instructions will be provided to you by your injector.

Will I need additional treatments?
For some patients, they may need multiple Voluma treatments to gain the results they want. This is typical for patients who need a larger amount of volume replacement. During your initial assessment, we will be able to create a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve your desired outcome.
