JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is a treatment designed specifically to treat the mid-face area by restoring volume lost during the natural aging process. The amount of volume lost varies from patient to patient, with more drastic losses resulting in obvious and undesired changes to the face. Before the development of VOLUMA, diminishing fullness in the mid-face could only be addressed with surgical procedures. VOLUMA allows for a similar revitalization but without any incisions.
Candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA
- Patients with diminished volume in the mid-face area
- Patients without defined cheekbones
- Patients wanting added volume to their face without a surgical procedure
About JUVÉDERM VOLUMA
VOLUMA is an injectable gel and is the first and only filler approved by the FDA to add volume to the cheek area, cheekbones, chin and mid-face. The treatment is known for providing a subtle lift that can make patients look up to five years younger. VOLUMA is often the recommended treatment for Hawaii medical spa patients with larger scale volume loss. For most Hawaii JUVÉDERM VOLUMA patients, the treatment effects last up to twice as long as other fillers that provide similar initial results.
How JUVÉDERM VOLUMA is Administered
Before the treatment is administered, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Depending on the patient and the amount of treatment needed, the area may be numbed with a topical cream. VOLUMA is inserted beneath the skin with a very thin needle. Our Hawaii VOLUMA patients report little or no pain during treatment.
From start to finish, treatment takes about 20 minutes and patients are able to return to normal daily activities immediately afterward. Possible side effects include temporary swelling or redness at the treatment site. Dr. Schlesinger briefs each patient about the benefits and possible side effects during the consultation process so there are no surprises.
Off label uses for VOLUMA that have proven to be very effective are chin augmentations, getting rid of marionette lines, and lip augmentations to name just a few. Dr. Schlesinger is personally impressed with the longevity and consistency of VOLUMA.
