Pump up the Volume with Juvederm Voluma

by

Remember the days of our childhood, when we had nice plump cheeks? Little did we know that as we age, we lose collagen in our face that gives us that youthful appearance. The good news is that we now have Voluma for shape and volume in all the right places! With a treatment that takes less than 1 hour, The Dermatology Center of Indiana can help you refresh and renew your face with Voluma by enhancing your natural features.

Voluma is an injectable facial filler created by Allergan to plump, lift, and volumize. It is the first and only FDA approved filler used to treat volume loss in the mid-face and cheeks. A treatment with Voluma typically takes less than one hour at The Dermatology Center of Indiana. Voluma is placed under the skin using a tiny needle in a predetermined area. Voluma is premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so the treatment typically causes little to no discomfort.

Like any other injectable filler the most common side effects of Voluma are swelling, stinging, bruising, or bleeding at the injection sight. Most of these side effects typically start to improve within three days. One of the best benefits about Voluma is that it lasts up to two years. On the day of your Voluma treatment you should avoid strenuous exercise and alcoholic beverages as well as excessive exposure to heat or sun.
