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.
"Fantastic service all around. Very kind and professional atmosphere, Dr. Paresi really cares for his patients and goes above and beyond to make sure they’re happy and comfortable with results. The nurses are all fantastic as well."- A.V. / Google / Jan 07, 2020
"Caring, Friendly and Professional Experience - From my initial meeting with Dr. Paresi's office all the way through surgery and post-op, Dr. Paresi and his entire staff were kind, friendly and professional. All questions were thoroughly answered from the beginning, including the procedure and outcome. The staff ensured that I had all my necessary prescriptions beforehand and was well taken care of before, during and after the procedure. The surgery was seamless and my recovery time was not very long at all. Within two days, I felt normal, minus some regular bruising and swelling to be expected. I would highly recommend Dr. Paresi for cosmetic and health needs related to rhinoplasty and septoplasty."- E. / RealSelf / Apr 23, 2020
"Woman Grows Younger!!! - Doctor Parisi has performed two procedures for me. He was candid and explained everything to me in advance. Doctor Paresi is an artist. His approach is both clinical as well as creative. I was impressed just observing his plan for my body. I am 73 and not one person believes my age. Doctor changed my life with his techniques and I am now so much more confident I never felt that he was looking for money. In fact, there were times that he said that there was no reason to have another procedure.Doctor took as much time with me so that I was always ready for what the immediate result would be which totally helped me to understand and trust."- D.D. / RealSelf / Apr 08, 2020
"Dr. Paresi and his staff are amazing! So friendly, and made me feel comfortable. It was my first time getting any type of surgery, so the day of I was extremely nervous. I was 18 at the time, and decided to have a breast reduction (I was a 34H bra size, I am 5’2”/150lbs, it was very difficult to find clothing for me). I am now 2 1/2 months post-op, and I am very pleased with the results. I now wear a 34DD. My breasts are finally proportionate to my body and life is so much easier. No more back pain, headaches, or daily inconveniences. They are healing up beautifully. This was probably the best decision I ever made, and Dr. Paresi and his staff did a wonderful job. I will definitely be returning in the future for any other plastic surgery I decide to get. I would recommend Dr.Paresi 10/10 times. Him and his staff are very experienced and always there to help you/answer any questions. Thank you Dr. Paresi and staff for your hard work and amazing customer service!"- C.P. / Google / Mar 11, 2020

What to Expect with Voluma®
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.
