This injectable gel is an FDA-approved filler that instantly adds volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21.  It has been available in Europe since 2005 and is used in 72 countries worldwide. Juvederm Voluma one of the newest fillers in the family of Juvederm products, and is formulated with lidocaine for added comfort during treatment.

Juvederm Voluma is specifically designed to be injected deep in the dermis and to lay right on top of your facial bones. This ability to sit deep and stay in place is exactly what makes Voluma useful for particular injection sites and treatment outcomes. Voluma works best when it’s injected into the upper cheek or middle cheek or the chin. Voluma is placed deep in order to actually provide a lifting and volumizing effect in the upper and mid face areas, which have historically been more challenging to treat.

Virtually anyone with volume loss in their midface is a candidate for treatment with Voluma, as well as individuals with poorly defined cheekbones. Patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s may not be appropriate candidates for surgery, but may benefit instead from Voluma treatment.

Voluma will not be used under the eyes, in the lips or along the nasolabial folds (those lines going between the corners of your mouth and your nose). All of those injection sites require a thinner, more malleable filler to smoothly lay into the contour of your face.

According to Allergan, under optimal conditions the filler can last up to two years! Obviously ‘optimal conditions’ vary, but it’s safe to say that you’ll get a longer lasting result from a Voluma treatment than some of your other filler options.

Juvederm Voluma is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process called Vycross that helps provide an excellent lifting capacity. This special cross-linking also helps to avoid degradation, making JuvedermVoluma last almost twice as long as other fillers. Studies have shown that it can last up to 2 years. And since it is an HA filler, it can be molded and shaped into the desired contour after injection.
