Overview: Voluma

Our Seattle plastic surgery office is excited to offer patients Voluma, one of the latest injectable fillers from the Juvéderm® family. Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that instantly adds subtle lift and volume to the cheeks to restore a more youthful contour to the face and profile. Dr. Craig Jonov often refers to this product as a “liquid facelift”. It works to address the hollow areas around the cheeks while filling in moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It is common to combine a Voluma treatment with another procedure such as BOTOX or a chemical peel to produce outstanding results. Patients considering Voluma should be at least 21 years of age.

Surgical Technique

Firstly, using a thin syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Finally, results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site.



Questions about Voluma

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.

Best Candidate?

The cosmetic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation and answer any questions. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.

Any Downtime?

There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.

Lasting Results?

The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.

During/After Voluma Injections

Voluma is more expensive than other injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, because the results last longer. Therefore, the cost of a Voluma treatment varies, depending on the amount of filler used. Typically, plastic surgeons charge up to $1,000 per syringe. Each patient could use between 2 and 6 syringes per session, which means patients can expect to pay between $2,000 and $6,000 per session.
