Volume is a major characteristic of a beautiful face, and it makes a world of difference in the appearance of your skin. Too little volume can make the face look sunken and exaggerate fine lines. For long lasting results, consider Voluma®.

What is Voluma®?

Voluma® is a non-invasive thick gel filler that is injected deep into the skin resulting in increased volume, lifting, and contouring of the cheeks, cheekbones, and jaw line. Voluma® is the longest lasting FDA approved facial filler, lasting up to two years. Other fillers typically last less than one year.

five-star
Done this afternoon, so far so good. Checkup this afternoon, still doing well. Had a billing question that was resolved quickly and satisfactorily before I finished my checkout. Good care and good administration.

Does Voluma® have side effects?

Voluma® has the same potential side effects as every other facial filler, such as swelling, bruising, and redness. Because Voluma® is injected more deeply into the tissues, there may be more tenderness or soreness for a few days after treatment. Discomfort is easily managed with over the counter pain medication such as Tylenol.People with severe allergiesshould not use Voluma®. Be sure to inform Dr. Carvajal of all allergies you may have.

Are Voluma® injections painful?

Given that Voluma® is injected deeper than most fillers, it is pre-mixed with lidocaine (a numbing agent) so most patients find the treatment to be very comfortable. The only discomfort is the injection into the skin which is done through a very fine gauge needle and feels like a quick pinch. As the Voluma® gel is placed, you will feel mild pressure. Patients are very comfortable while receiving Voluma® treatments.
