VOLUMA® in Philadelphia
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift.
How does VOLUMA® work?
For many of our patients, VOLUMA® is the ideal treatment for the correction of mild to moderate superficial wrinkles, thinning lips, and under eye volume loss. The VOLUMA® gel is injected into the cheek. The injected gel adds immediate volume restoring a smoother appearance.
Who is the ideal candidate for VOLUMA®?
VOLUMA® is an optimal dermal filler treatment for our prospective Philadelphia and Main Line patients over the age of 21.
Who should not get VOLUMA®?
Patients with severe allergies to hyaluronic based fillers or lidocaine mixed in the filler, a history of anaphylaxis, an active infection near the site of injection and women who are currently pregnant and/or breastfeeding should not receive VOLUMA®.
What should I know before my VOLUMA® treatment?
Patients should stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil supplements for two weeks prior to injection, to decrease your risk of bruising at the injection site. We suggest that our patients take Arnica two days prior to treatment.
Is there any downtime after my VOLUMA® treatment?
Although there is no real downtime for our patients, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity 24 hours following the injection.
What are some of the possible side effects of VOLUMA®?
Potential side effects for our patients include: injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching.
What should I expect after my VOLUMA® treatment?
Our patients should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
How long will my VOLUMA® treatment last?
Our patients should experience results for up to two years.
