As our bodies go through the natural aging process, we begin to lose definition and contour. This loss of definition and contour can be especially visible in the face and often results in a sunken or hollow appearance. Spa Black offers Juvederm® Voluma injectable fillers to help restore volume to the face that has been lost as a result of the aging process. If you are looking for a non-surgical option to restore volume and contour back to the midface and cheek regions, Juvederm® Voluma might be the right treatment option for you!

What is Voluma®?
Voluma® is a part of the Juvederm® line of hyaluronic acid-based gel dermal fillers and was specifically designed to help restore volume and contour to the cheek and midface areas. Voluma® can help to restore a youthful appearance by lifting and contouring the cheeks. Patients may also experience an improvement in the appearance of the lower face and jawline as a result of Voluma® injections. Voluma® is FDA approved to last for up to two years and is the only filler approved to treat volume loss in the midface area.

What can I expect during an injection session?
Voluma is injected with a fine needle into the skin of the cheek area and immediately restores volume loss and contour to the treated area. Voluma® is formulated with Lidocaine, so there is minimal discomfort experienced during an injection session. At the patient’s request, a topical anesthetic can also be applied to the treatment area prior to the injection. Voluma® injections are a minimally-invasive treatment and there is no downtime associated with the procedure, patients are typically able to immediately return to their normal activities. Injection sessions typically take about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the areas being treated. Multiple injection sessions may be necessary in order to achieve your desired results.
What are the potential side effects?
Some patients may experience minor swelling, tenderness, bruising, redness, itching, discoloration, or discomfort at the injection site. All these side effects are temporary and should resolve on their own.
