Juvederm Voluma is a revolutionary injectable in the Juvederm family of dermal fillers. It is among a handful of dermal fillers approved by the FDA which produce almost instant results. Like other successful Juvederm fillers, Voluma is composed of hyaluronic acid and is administered directly into the areas which require treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient found in the body and its effects are temporary. Treatment can be reversed if one is not satisfied with the results or if any complications arise.
How is Voluma Different?
One major differing factor between these products is the treatment area. Many of the products produced by Juvederm are specifically made to be used in certain regions of the face or to treat specific conditions. For example, some of the other Juvederm fillers are used for treating wrinkles and folds while Juvederm Voluma is used especially for enhancing and filling the cheek area.
As we age, the collagen in our face begins to deteriorate. As a result, our cheeks begin to droop and a sunken look is created. Voluma excels in treating such sunken and droopy cheeks and restores the plumpness and contours of the face.
Another advantage Voluma possesses over other dermal fillers is the amount of time that its effects last. Voluma has been clinically proven to last for up to two years with optimum treatment compared to other dermal fillers which normally only last from six months to a year.

The administration process for Voluma is quick and painless. In fact, it can be performed in under an hour and there is very little to no downtime after the procedure. This means you can resume your regular activities in as little as 24 hours.
It is important to keep in mind that each person’s body is different and while one person might heal quickly, another person’s body may require more time to adjust. Therefore, it is advisable to avoid all strenuous activities until no more discomfort is felt.
However, it is normal and natural to experience a certain amount of moderate side effects as is the case with all dermal fillers. Some common side effects include:
Side effects are minor and they will generally last for only two to four weeks.
