Voluma for the Cheeks
Voluma has been released early to a select group of experienced injectors. Outstanding results may be achieved by skilled providers, so make sure to choose your doctor carefully.

Voluma is a treatment not a product
When Voluma is done properly it can give a beautiful, youthful lift to the cheeks. The shape of the curve is what determines whether or not the treatment looks great or not. A youthful cheek as what is called an ogee curve (a term from architecture). That type of curve on the cheek if fuller higher up on the cheek and much less full down at the level of the upper lip. Keeping that shape avoids a chipmunk look.
Voluma Will Not Give You Chipmunk Cheeks, But an Injector Lacking Artistic Vision Will
I agree, "Lips and Cheeks on a Stick" that we see on many of the "Housewives of…" shows and in other actresses is not normal, not attractive, and makes those poor souls look like genetic mutants. It is not ever the product, in the case of your question Voluma, that causes the "chipmunk" cheeks; rather it is the lack of artistic vision and even lack of skill of the injector. Please make sure that you take the time and effort to choose your injecting physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.

Voluma doesn't cause chipmunk cheeks
Chipmunk cheeks are a result of a poor injector, not the filler being used. You need a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who is trained in anatomy, symmetry, beauty and more to best determine which filler to use, how much of it, at what depth to inject it, and to make sure there is limited risk of side effects. Voluma in highly trained hands will not give you chipmunk cheeks.
Voluma is great for restoring cheek volume.
As we age we naturally lose volume in the midface and Voluma is a great way to restore that volume, instantly and it lasts for as long as 2 years or more! The key is of course to restore volume in a beautiful and natural way. Chipmunk cheeks would be neither beautiful or natural. The art of volume restoration lies with the provider, choose an expert injector, go over the plan before treatment and express your concerns and desires. You should be very happy with the result, and no chipmunk cheeks. (if you should happen to have a less than stellar result from an inexperienced injector remember that Voluma is reversable)
