Voluma Injectable Filler - New Orleans

48 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Voluma is manufactured by the same company that is behind Juvederm, and it is a preferred injectable filler by many of our New Orleans and Metairie patients. As a person ages, volume is depleted within the facial features, especially in the cheek area, giving an appearance of a gaunt, droopy look. Injectable facial fillers, such as Voluma, help restore volume in the cheeks for a more youthful contours. It is also supplemented with cheek implants to help fill in areas around the implant and remaining cheek bone, or can be used as an alternative to implants all together. Comprised of hyaluronic-acid, the gel is injected directly around the hollows of the cheeks, which reduces wrinkles and creases around the treated area. 

What to Expect

Voluma is injected into the skin with fine needles, so some patients may experience some minor pain from the initial prick. Numbing creams may be applied on the injection site to ease the patient’s discomfort. Patients also have the option to use lidocaine, which is mixed with the Voluma solution, to help provide anesthetic effects in and around the area. A treatment may last up to 30 minutes. Patients will be able to return to daily activities after several hours. There may be some swelling, discoloration and tenderness around the cheeks, but will subside after a few days. Results are readily evident, and can last up to 2 years. 

Expected Cost

Compared to other injectable fillers, Voluma tends to cost more because the formulation is more advanced. One advantage of choosing Voluma is its results last longer (an average of 2 years). The price for a full syringe is around $1,000. However, a single treatment is more likely to use more than a single syringe. A session may use between 2 and 6 syringes, which means patients can expect to pay between $2,000 to $6,000 per session, depending on the patient’s cosmetic goals.

Voluma FAQs

Is Hyaluronic Acid Natural?

Hyaluronic acid, Voluma’s main ingredient, is derived from natural substances found in the human body. Its main function is cell hydration, and with its cross-linking abilities, it is generally useful in helping facial areas that lack volume. Over time, the gel substance breaks down and is absorbed naturally by the body without any side effects.

Ideal Candidate?

Those who seek improved volume in the cheeks may consider Voluma as a noninvasive solution. The lack of cheek volume may be due to aging or the patient’s natural facial structure. The doctor will be able to recommend if Voluma is the best option during the initial consultation.

How Long Is Recovery?

Right after treatment, patients will be able to resume to their normal routine with restriction on strenuous activities or any movement that may put pressure on the treated area. It may take up to 1 week before the dermal filler settles within the cheek pockets.

Long Term?

Among dermal fillers available in the market today, Voluma can last up to 2 years or longer. Reinjection varies as patients’ bodies process and break down hyaluronic acid at different rates.
