How long does it take for the full effects of Voluma XC injections to take effect?

You will want to wait 2 weeks to assess the final result.
You will want to wait 2 weeks to assess the final result. Swelling is a common side effect of injections and can last approx. 2 weeks. If after 2 weeks you think you would like additional product, schedule a follow up with your injector.
Full effect of voluma is immediate
I am glad you like the effect of your first Voluma treatment. You can build upon it by returning for additional Voluma/filler.
Patients are often surprised by how much they need. A woman in her mid to late twenties can usually use at least 1 syringe. Early thirties, expect 2 syringes. In the later thirties, depending on how quickly you are aging, you may benefit from 3+ syringes (not all voluma; could be a combination of Voluma and other, softer products). With every decade that passes, the aging process accelerates.
This doesn't mean that we have to put all the filler in at once. If a patient is apprehensive or has financial constraints, I often recommend starting with 1 or 2 syringes and adding an additional 1-2 syringes every so often to build on the effects.
When patients start fillers, I will try to articulate a plan for correction and a plan for maintenance. Think of obtaining/maintaining your appearance so that you look great for your age the same way you think about going to the dentist or hair stylist regularly.
When do I see the result of Voluma?
Voluma is a beautiful filler for deeper and fuller filling on the cheekbones, midface, and jawline. You can see the results immediately. During a consultation, I usually advise the patients how much I think they will need before starting. If they would like to start conservatively, I split one syringe between both sides of the face. After I use the one syringe, I have patients look in the mirror and see if they would like more or wait 1-2 weeks to see if they need more. Often, patients get home, love their result, but realize they need more. I like to let patients direct how much they want.

Use of Voluma
Voluma results are immediate
one of the great things about voluma is the instant results. I typically take pictures of my patients before and right after injections so together we can go to my office and asses the results. It is nothing short of amazing. Over the next week or so some bruising and swelling can develop but it ususally goes back to that initial immediate appearance after injecting.
Voluma provides instant results, however it may take a week for the swelling to subside and for everything to settle. Good luck!
Time It Takes For Voluma To Take Effect
It’s always better to inject conservatively at first.
