Voluma, by Juvederm, is among the newest developments in the world of dermal filler injections. Formulated to replenish lost skin volume, Voluma is used to enhance the cheeks, chin, and lips. It is designed to restore a youthful plumpness and firmness to the cheeks, and is used to enhance the overall curves of the face.
This treatment contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of the skin, which is lost due to the natural aging process. This treatment counteracts the process by replenishing the skin's supply of HA, restoring the skin's volume and structure.
Is Voluma right for me?
Voluma may be right for you if your cheeks have begun to sag due to lost skin volume. This lost skin volume can be enhanced through Voluma dermal filler injections, which are most often used to increase the volume and firmness of the cheeks, chin, or lips. Most West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area women and men who are in good overall health can receive injections of this dermal filler. Unlike most practices you do not see a PA, Dr. Kapp performs all Voluma injections himself.
How much does Voluma cost?
In the West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area, Voluma injections cost between $300 and $800 per session, depending on the volume of injectable filler needed to achieve the desired result.
How involved is the Voluma procedure?
This treatment is considered to be minimally-invasive, and takes just a few minutes in the doctor's office. The injection contains Lidocaine, making it virtually painless. The dermal filler gel is injected through a thin needle into targeted areas of the skin. The number of injections varies with each patient's individual goals, but is usually between three and eight. Once injected, the filler plumps up the skin while attracting water molecules for further volume enhancement.
How long is the recovery after Voluma?
Dermal filler injections have no required downtime; most patients return to work and other daily routines the same day. There are no bandages required. Some patients experience minor redness, bruising, or irritation, which may be camouflaged with makeup. The lifting effects of this treatment are visible immediately, and last for up to 18 months.
