Amae Plastic Surgery Center is currently evaluating Voluma™, a new facial filler from Allergan. Voluma is an injectable gel that adds volume in the check area. This filler provides a subtle lift, which give the face a more youthful profile. Results have been shown to last up to two years.
Voluma is different from Juvederm® XC; Voluma works on the cheek area while Juvederm XC works on the folds around the nose and mouth.
The product is the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. Within 24 hours of the application you should be able to resume normal activities.
Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
Dr. Ali is evaluating Voluma™ to understand the results of in-market usage. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us or call (855) 335-7200.
