Voluma is an injectable filler that is a part of the Juvederm family. Our Chicago area cosmetic surgery practice relies on this filler to help add volume to the cheeks and mid-face of patients who desire a nonsurgical approach to a facelift. During the aging process, there is a natural loss of volume that is visibly obvious in the cheeks. This creates a sunken appearance, lines around the mouth, and sagging jowls, all of which can be corrected with this filler product. Manufactured with hyaluronic acid (HA), Juvederm instantly adds a subtle lift to the cheeks, restoring the mid-face with a more youthful contour. Voluma may be used in a combination with different facial rejuvenation treatments offered by our Downers Grove MedSpa. Patients must be at least 21 years of age to receive this filler treatment.

"Today I had my appointment with Maria for a facial. The experience was great from start to finish. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. I had never gotten a facial before and I really enjoyed it and will definitely return for more appointments. I have already recommended my sister to check it out as well. The facial was great my skin feels extremely soft. It felt almost as if you were in a spa it was very relaxing. Maria also made recommendations as to how to continue taking care of my skin.

What to Expect
Using a think syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.
The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
