Voluma in the lower cheek
To resolve fine wrinkles in face especially around the lower eyelid-cheek junction I believe resurfacing procedures like Fraxel (CO2 laser) can be very beneficial.
I do recommend a consult with a plastic surgeon comfortable in skin treatments and injectables and lasers to evaluate your concerns
Voluma helps cheek contour
Your best bet is to discuss this with your cosmetic surgeon who can help you figure out what treatments are right for you.
Best Treatment for Crepe` Looking Skin in the Lower Cheek Area
Voluma revolumization of the upper cheeks does help with lower cheek lines. The best course of treatment for lower cheek lines is to have a fractionated CO2 laser treatment such as Fraxel repair followed by the injection of Voluma and other fillers is necessary. Choose your injecting physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.

Does Voluma help with crepey looking skin
In most cases Voluma is injected at deeper depths so it won't have much of an effect on the skin's texture. Voluma is used to restore underneath volume. To resolve crepiness you'd need to undergo more of a retexturing procedure like Invasix Fractora (or other Fraxel options).

Juvederm Voluma effectively lifts the mid face, but does not affect skin texture or fine wrinkling when present.
Dear writer, Juvederm Voluma effectively lifts the mid face, but does not affect skin texture or fine wrinkling when present. Voluma is an excellent filler that's proving to successfully fill areas of volume loss on the mid face, as well as have a lifting effect. However, when wrinkling and loss of elasticity is present on the lower cheeks, these are not improved with Voluma injections. The best choice for improving these findings in aging skin are chemical peels and laser resurfacing, as with the Fraxel or Icon lasers.

Voluma Filler to Help Fill Cheek
Voluma is FDA approved to fill and lift the mid face. Without seeing you in person or without seeing pictures, it is impossible to give you specific advice. However, in the studies on Voluma and in extensive experience, even with injections in the cheek area, positive effects were seen in areas not injected such as the nasolabial folds around the mouth and the tear troughs around the eyes. Off-label areas can also be injected, but this is at the discretion of your injector. If the areas you are looking to have treated are superficial, you may need combination injections with Voluma used in the deep areas of the cheeks and mid face and Juvederm, Restylane or Belotero in the more superficial levels of the skin.
