While hollow, flat cheeks may have been 90s chic, modern beauty calls for full cheeks that make you look healthy and youthful. Part of the award-winning Juvéderm family of injectable wrinkle fillers, Voluma is specially designed to add contour and lift to the cheeks for a younger appearance. At our Encinitas, CA office, plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann performs injections of Voluma to correct sunken cheeks that are flat and hollow due to genetics, weight loss, or age. Schedule a consultation to learn about how Voluma injectable treatments at Schoemann Plastic Surgery can refresh your appearance by increasing fullness and lift.
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that is best for adding contour and lift to your cheeks. Many patients notice decreased volume of their cheeks as they get older or if they have lost a large amount of weight. Some patients may have been born with thin cheeks and want treatment to plump their face. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not get injectable treatments. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. You will have a consultation to determine if Voluma is the best choice for you. Based on your needs, goals, and medical history, a unique treatment plan will be formed.
Once you’ve had a consultation with Dr. Schoemann, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In our minor procedures rooms, you will relax while your skin is cleansed before the injections. The injector can also apply a numbing cream to make the treatment more comfortable if desired. For precision, your injector will mark your face before administering the Voluma injections with a fine needle. After the Voluma has been applied, you may have some swelling and redness, but this typically subsides in a few days.
What to Expect
For most patients, the effects of Voluma injections are visible immediately and typically last around two years. It is unusual to experience severe or lasting side effects from Voluma, but if you do have concerns or a reaction, please call Schoemann Plastic Surgery for assistance. The most common side effects are slight redness, irritation, or swelling of the injection site. These symptoms are usually very minor. Ask your injector about when to schedule your next procedure to either increase or extend the results of Voluma.
