Voluma® in South Jersey

Get More Youthful Facial Contours from the Juvederm® Family

Aging impacts the face in a variety of ways, with one of the most visible changes developing as facial fat diminishes and shifts downward. Voluma® at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center addresses changing facial contours by restoring a roundness to the midface in what is known as the "apple." Added volume there also serves to tighten the skin, subtly pulling up sagging tissue that can form jowls.

Voluma® in a Nutshell

  • Juvederm Voluma® (often referred to as just Voluma®) is based on hyaluronic acid, which makes it ideal for keeping skin moisturized and elastic—like all injectables in the Juvederm® dermal fillers line
  • Voluma® is designed specifically for use in the mid-face, where age-related volume loss can cause the cheeks to flatten
  • Under ideal conditions, results from a single treatment session can last up to two years.
  • If patients have regular Voluma® sessions to maintain a more youthful look, they may find that less product is required for future treatments.

Proper application of Voluma® requires not just knowledge of how to safely and effectively inject it, but also an artistic sensibility so that the results harmonize with the rest of the face and enhance it. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Robin Levin has the training, experience, and talent needed to consistently deliver customized, natural-looking results via Voluma® at her South Jersey practice.

What is Voluma®?

Made into a clear gel with a proprietary process that cross-links beneficial hyaluronic acid molecules, Voluma® is a filler intended for injection into the cheek area. Treatment sessions at the South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center typically take no longer than 30 minutes.

Is Voluma® Right for You?

Voluma® injections are intended for patients who:

  • Are older than 21
  • Have never had anaphylaxis due to an allergy
  • Are not allergic to lidocaine or proteins from Gram-positive bacteria
  • Want to correct their flattened cheeks and facial sagging

Women and men who choose our South Jersey practice for their injections often report that the process was virtually painless. The effects—smoother, rounder facial contours in place of hollows due to volume loss—can last up to two years.

How Does Voluma® Work?

Hyaluronic acid is an important component in youthful skin, as it holds onto moisture within the framework of collagen that gives skin its resilient structure. Both collagen and hyaluronic acid diminish in the skin over time, so Voluma® serves to bring moisture-retaining volume back to where it is needed. It can also serve to stimulate new collagen production, furthering its volumizing and rejuvenating effects.

What to Expect After a Treatment Session

Because no incisions are involved in this straightforward treatment, many people find that they return to daily life right after their injections. There are some cautions, such as avoiding sunlight and makeup for a time, that will be discussed in detail.

Expected side effects are mild and include reactions common to injections: bruising, swelling, and redness. These all tend to resolve on their own within two weeks.

Options Beyond Voluma®

South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center also offers other fillers in the popular line, including Juvederm Ultra Plus® and Vollure to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, as well as Juvederm Ultra® and Volbella® to subtly add volume to the lips.

Manufacturer Allergan also makes BOTOX®, which can complement the rejuvenating effects of dermal filler by addressing the wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements on the forehead and next to the eyes.

The South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center team, led by Dr. Levin, works with each patient to explain what the various cosmetic options can and cannot do, as well as how they work individually or in combination to generate natural-looking results for the entire face.
