Whats the difference between injecting Voluma in the cheek area with one injection vs multiple injections?
Doctor Answers 15
Cannulas or Needles Both Work Well With Voluma
Every board-certified dermatologist will have a preferred technique of delivering Voluma to the cheeks and cheekbones. Some use multiple injections with needles. Others prefer one small incision with a cannula, which is then manipulated in the skin to deliver the Voluma to various areas. Either can be effective and give highly satisfactory results. Cannulas tend to cause less bruising and swelling afterward and may be safer to use in the medial cheek, versus a needle laterally. Please speak with your board-certified dermatologist if you have more questions about your upcoming procedure.

Point injections can specifically localise and place the filler with extreme accuracy. Like most comments so far, I do believe that filling is an art, and each face is different. It is in the eye of your injector and their skills that make the difference.

You should be involved with the process by telling your doctor what you like and where you feel your face has issues you want corrected.

What Would da Vinci Have Done? Best Physician Facial Filler Injection Techniques
The use of injectable fillers is the art form of sculpting on the human face. Just as da
Vinci used different tools and blends of materials, expert facial filler injectors have many tools and techniques to create natural beauty, symmetry, and rejuvenation.
We can use one injection site with a micro-canulla, multiple site injections with the canal and/or needles, or any combination. The point, no pun intended, is that what matters most, and what our patients are paying for is their result.
With the proper physician injector, your injections should rate a 1 or 2 on the 10 point pain scale. Improperly performed, a 1 prick treatment can be more painful than a properly performed multiple injection treatment.
Choose your injecting physician most carefully based on their skill, knowledge, experience, caring nature, and most importantly on their natural artistic vision. Good luck and be well.

Cheek Injections with Voluma
What is really important is the ultimate result. It usually takes several injections to contour a given area with Voluma. The injections need to be deep and placed accurately to assure a great cosmetic result. Best, Dr. Green
