What is Voluma?
While hollow cheeks were popular in the 90s, modern trends in beauty are now moving toward voluminous cheeks that help you appear youthful and healthy. From the top-selling Juvéderm collection of nonsurgical dermal fillers, Voluma is uniquely designed to give lift and contour to the mid-face for a natural and more youthful look. At our offices in Philadelphia, PA, or Radnor, PA, our team of experienced medical injectors offers Voluma injectable treatments to address a sunken mid-face that is hollow and flat due to weight loss, genetics, or age. Giving you improvements that are visible for as long as two years, Voluma by Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that uses hyaluronic acid to help your face feel softer and look smoother. Schedule an appointment to learn more about how Juvéderm Voluma injectable treatments at Body+Beauty Lab can boost your overall appearance by providing lift and fullness.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Voluma?
Voluma is an HA (hyaluronic acid) injectable filler that can help add lift and contour to your mid-face. Many people see decreased fullness of the apples of their cheeks when they age or after they have dropped a dramatic amount of weight while others may have naturally hollow cheeks and could be seeking treatment to enhance their mid-face. Female patients who are nursing or pregnant are not eligible for these injections. Voluma by Juvéderm is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for patients 21 years and older. Before anything is planned, you will complete a consultation to decide if Voluma may be an effective filler for you. After considering your needs, cosmetic goals, and medical history, a personalized injectable treatment plan will be developed.
"I was recently in for a Detox Express facial/dermaplane with Sandi & cheek fillers with Lisa. This was my first time meeting Sandi and she was amazing! She scanned my face and went through the technology/explained where I could improve, it was really neat to see rmy face dissected like that! Sandi could not have been more personable! She explained my entire treatment with her and gave me great recommendations. My face felt so good and smooth after the facial, I was glowing! Go see Sandi!! I have been seeing Lisa for a few years now for my fillers (cheek/lip) & Botox. Lisa has always addressed my concerns and perfected keeping me looking natural and refreshed! I appreciate her talent and artistry! No one ever knows that I get anything done and that’s what you want! Lisa is the best!! Thank you to both for keeping me looking my best! I look forward to my next appt."- J.L. / Yelp / Jan 20, 2022
"I had a filler treatment done to enhance and contour the masculine features of my face and light Botox where fine lines were starting. This was a new experience for me so I was a little nervous, but as soon as I was sitting in the room consulting with Naomi I was very relaxed. She is a very professional and confident nurse injector. I was happy with results immediately. I am at the 48 hour mark since and I am absolutely obsessed. The results aren’t dramatic but I can see a night and day difference which is exactly what I wanted. I feel very good about myself and am looking forward to taking selfies this summer"- M.F. / Google / Jun 14, 2022
How does voluma work?
After your consultation, your procedure may be planned for your next appointment or completed that same day, depending on schedule availability. In a private procedure room, you will sit and relax as the treated area is cleaned to prepare for the Voluma injections. The injector may also use a local anesthetic to help make the procedure more comfortable. For accuracy, your injector will mark the areas to be treated before administering the injections with a fine-gauge needle. When the filler is injected, you may notice mild redness and swelling, but this usually subsides on its own.
What areas can voluma treat?
In addition to providing desired lift and volume to the cheeks, Voluma can now be used to enhance the appearance of the chin. If you have a small chin or think your profile is lacking, a member of our team can meet with you during a private consultation and create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the look you want. The formula of this filler is potent enough to produce noticeable improvements that still look natural and subtle. The number of syringes you will need will vary, depending on your goals and what kind of improvements you'd like to see.
What are the benefits of VOLUMA?
Voluma was created by top-selling JUVÉDERM, a trusted brand that has been providing nonsurgical dermal fillers since 2006. Famously, JUVÉDERM products, including VOLUMA, contain a powerful dose of hyaluronic acid. VOLUMA is special because it was designed with Vycross technology, which synthesizes hyaluronic acid molecules that are lower in weight. This allows the VOLUMA filler to bond with both long and short molecule chains. This results in longer-lasting effects of skin smoothness and volume, giving you a natural and radiant look that lasts up to 15 months.
What can I Expect after voluma?
For many patients, the benefits of Voluma treatments can be seen right away and may last about two years. It's rare to develop lasting or severe reactions from Voluma injections. If you do have questions, concerns, or a negative reaction, please contact Body+Beauty Lab for more information. Common side effects are light swelling, redness, or irritation of the treated area. These cases are generally extremely minor. During your consultation, ask your injector about how soon to plan your next appointment to either build up or prolong the effects of Voluma.
How much does Voluma cost?
Your cost for a Voluma treatment will vary based on the amount of product that is required to meet your goals. Since Voluma can last as long as two years, you can concentrate on finding an experienced injector and you should not go anywhere that offers knock-off or extremely cheap fillers. Before your first treatment, a staff member will evaluate your mid-face and understand your wants before developing your personalized treatment plan. From there, we can estimate your costs.

What is hyaluronic acid?
HA (hyaluronic acid) is a substance found naturally in your skin that binds water to cells. One of its functions is to retain moisture and build volume in the skin. Voluma, like other fillers in the Juvéderm family, is made with a synthetic hyaluronic acid. When the hyaluronic acid-based Voluma formula is injected, it restores fullness to your mid-face. The HA also improves your skin's ability to retain moisture so your complexion appears healthier and softer.
How long do the results from Voluma last?
Ideally, Voluma results can last for as long as two years. You should be able to see improvements from your treatment right away, which will continue to get better in the following month because Voluma stimulates your body's natural production of HA. You might desire multiple injections, particularly if you are wanting to significantly increase the volume in your mid-face. During your initial consultation, your injector will create your personalized plan and let you know when to schedule your next appointment to maintain your results.
Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
After your treatment, you may resume your normal activities. However, it's recommended that exercise and other strenuous activities be skipped for at least one day. Your injector will talk about what you can do at home to make sure your results look great and last a long time. You may be advised to place a cold compress over the treatment areas to minimize bruising and swelling. Your injector might also recommend propping your head up with a few pillows while your sleep. You shouldn't touch your face to avoid pushing the filler into other areas.
What are the possible side effects of Voluma?
Many patients have mild swelling and bruising in and around the treatment areas for up to one month. Other possible side effects are firmness, tenderness, lumps, bumps, discomfort, and redness. If any of these develop, side effects are typically mild and short-term. For any questions, reactions that last longer than one month, or you have symptoms of an infection, contact Body+Beauty Lab.
