As we age, our facial area begins to lose its subcutaneous fat and that youthful freshness we once had gives way to smile lines and crow’s feet. Your facial skin also begins to stretch over time, contributing to the loss of volume. Add in issues caused by heredity, lifestyle, weight loss or sun exposure, and you may want to consider non-invasive, safe dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and lines by restoring a healthy fullness to the face.
Injectable, cosmetic dermal fillers can be used to plump thin lips, minimize the appearance of facial scars and soften lines and wrinkles in your face. Medical technology continues to advance and as we learn about and develop healthier, safer treatments, skin care procedures also continue to evolve.
New And Improved Dermal Filler
Most dermal filler treatments last 4-6 months, but the average Juvéderm® treatment can last up to a full year. The new JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA filler has a thicker consistency and is injected deeper into the dermis, atop facial bones, making it a longer-lasting solution for the middle to upper facial areas.
The key ingredient, Hyaluronic acid, occurs naturally in your skin and this latest-generation dermal filler is based on that natural chemistry. It is also the first FDA-approved product that instantly repairs age-related volume loss, correcting facial wrinkles and restoring that youthful fullness to your cheeks. Your results will last at least one year, and most people enjoy benefits from 18 months to two years! Juvéderm® Voluma cannot be used under eyes, in lips, or in the lines between your mouth and nose (nasolabial folds).
Seeing is believing: view our Before and After gallery, which shows dramatic improvements in patients using dermal fillers.

Where Can Voluma Be Used?
Juvederm Voluma specializes in adding volume to your face, so the very best place to use Voluma is on the cheeks. Voluma will add some needed volume to your face, helping you to achieve a more youthful look. As we age, the volume in our face goes down, leading to flatter cheeks and even dents where there is no volume. We inject Juvederm Voluma on top of your cheekbone, giving you a natural and beautiful appearance.
How Many Syringes of Voluma Will I Need?
How many syringes of Voluma you require will 100% depend on the individual. Every person is different, and how they react to Juvederm Voluma will instruct how many syringes of Voluma we will inject. We always start with just one syringe, but many people require two or more for best results.
How Long Does Voluma Last?
Juvederm Voluma lasts a very long time, with patients seeing effects for one to two years after the initial injection. However, as we stated above, every person is different and some people will find that Voluma will last a shorter or longer amount of time.
Is Voluma Painful?
We do everything we can to ensure that your Juvederm Voluma injection is as comfortable and pain-free as possible. About 15 to 20 minutes before the injection, we will rub a numbing cream on the injection site to reduce the amount of discomfort you feel. While you will definitely feel a pinching during the injection, most patients find the procedure tolerable.
Juvederm Voluma Aftercare
After the injection, there are a few aftercare suggestions to make sure the Juvederm Voluma is as effective as possible.
- Rest up! Avoid working out or any kind of heavy exercise until 24 hours after the injection.
- While not totally necessary, for best results sleep with your head up.
- Avoid taking Aspirin or Ibuprofen in the first few days after the injection.
- Use an ice pack or cold compress to fight any redness or swelling that might occur following the injection.
