VOLUMA

 

“I just got Voluma™ and I look 5 years younger. I felt like my face was dropping: It was sagging and I looked tired and sad despite my best efforts. A few well- placed injections with Voluma made a huge difference, and best—no one knows what I had done!”
—MM, Fort Lee

“Voluma™, which is the only product in the USA that’s been FDA- approved to add volume to the cheek area, provides more immediate results than Sculptra and has a life span of two years. It’s a very sturdy filler composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural component of the skin. Since it is cohesive and sticky, it stays where it’s put. The injections are placed in the deep layers of the skin to provide a subtle fullness and lift.”
—Dr. Michele Grodberg

Voluma

If you’re considering Voluma treatments, here are Dr. Grodberg’s answers to a few frequently asked questions:

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOLUMA, RESTYLANE AND JUVEDERM?

Although they are all composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Voluma™ is processed in a different way that other Hyaluronic Acid fillers and as a result it has different characteristics. These qualities are suited to placement deeper in the skin. Voluma™ works particularly well restoring volume and creating lift to the cheeks, while Juvederm and Restylane are better suited for filling defined areas, like nasolabial folds and in the hollows below the eyes.”

DO THE INJECTIONS HURT?

“Voluma’s gel fomula contains lidocaine to minimize discomfort so numbing cream is not necessary but can be used if the patient prefers.”

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

“This is considered a safe treatment but all fillers are associated with some risk of side effects. Side effects with Voluma™ include: temporary injection-site tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps, bumps, bruising pain, redness, discoloration and itching. When these arise they are generally mild to moderate and resolve within a few weeks.”

HOW LONG DOES VOLUMA LAST?

“The results are clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.”
