In the 90s, lean, flat cheeks were a popular trend; however, modern beauty calls for voluminous cheeks that help you appear youthful and healthy. From the popular Juvéderm family of injectable dermal fillers, Voluma is uniquely made to add contour and lift to the mid-face for a natural, more youthful appearance. At DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA, we offer Voluma injections to address sunken cheeks, which have become hollow and flat because of age, weight loss, or genetics. Giving you results that last up to two years, Voluma is a dermal filler with hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps your face look smoother and feel softer. Schedule a consultation to learn about Juvéderm Voluma treatments and how they can refresh your appearance by increasing lift and fullness.
Are voluma injections for you?
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that can help add lift and contour to your mid-face. Many patients notice decreased fullness of their cheeks when they age or if they have dropped a large amount of weight. Some patients may have a genetic predisposition for flat cheeks and want to enhance the plumpness with Voluma. To ensure your safety, nursing or pregnant women cannot receive Voluma treatments. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients 21 and older. In your consultation, we will discuss your needs and medical history to decide if Voluma is an effective filler for you. Based on our discussion, we will create a unique treatment plan.

"Excellent care , especially the follow up care"- L.S. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"I am a female in my 20’s, and since I was 12 years old, I KNEW I wanted to change my nose. I currently live in Boston and met with an array of plastic surgeons in the area to discuss my goals. Dr.DeRosa and her staff are the best, and here is why: • Everyone is very professional. I have very high anxiety in general, and everyone in the office dealt with that in a professional way, especially when it came to changing dates due to Covid – 19. Sarah, once of the office managers, handled my anxiety and pestering in a very professional manner. • Dr.DeRosa always has a big smile on her face, has a lot of energy and is very welcoming. My family is far away from me in other states and countries, and that added a lot of anxiety during the operation. Everyone in the room handled things well and calmed me down as I was having a hard time dealing with how I felt ( when you enter the operation room, it gets REAL). I never had any kind of surgery before, I went into the room without experience, but with lots of support from the staff. • The anesthesiologist and the nurse working with me were awesome. • Dr.DeRosa is not after you money – I mentioned my interest in another procedure (in addition to Rhinoplasty), and she told me to hold off until my face is 100% healed to make that decision. • The clinic space itself is very clean and well put together. • The experience is private – so if you are worried about these things – don’t be. • Even though the cast is not off yet, I can see the new shape of my nose ( even though it is somewhat swollen), and it looks fabulous. Dr.DeRosa and I talked about my goals, and she identified several areas of improvement for my nose vs. just giving me a “once size fits most” recommendation. For those of you that want to know this, yes, Rhinoplasty is somewhat painful. Yes, there will be swelling and a couple of sleepless nights. Everyone is different, I saw MAJOR improvement on day four. Dr.DeRosa checks in on her patients regularly, and is open to phone calls/emails you may have during your recovery. She checked up on me a day after my surgery, then couple of days later I called the office with a question, I got a phone call back a couple hours later (once Dr.DeRosa was finished with a surgery), and all my questions got answered. Our check ins did not seem rushed – she took the time to ensure I felt good and got the information I need. Very thankful for my experience. 😊"- C.A. / Google / Jul 08, 2020
"My experience at DeRosa clinic was excellent, the staff was very accommodating and caring. I consider my face surgery to be life changing. Dr DeRosa is by far one of the best caring professional surgeons I came across. It a great feeling to be able to trust your face knowing that the results will be amazing. And my results are speak for themselves, people think I am 15 years younger:)"- A.L. / Google / Mar 11, 2020
"After a horrific experience from a previous plastic surgery, I cannot say enough about how different this experience was. To have a doctor explain the procedure, what would be necessary to correct the issues from the previous surgery, as well as her ability to fix what the previous doctor had done (which left me disfigured and insecure in my appearance) is something I cannot put into words. Her energy and upbeat attitude are so important to the experience. You leave feeling that you are more than just a patient, which translates to a better recovery and overall experience. I am so grateful to have found Dr. DeRosa."- K.G. / Google / Mar 10, 2020
After your consultation, we can usually perform your treatment on the same day. In one of our minor procedure rooms, we will clean your cheeks before the Voluma injections. If desired, our doctors can also apply a local anesthetic to make the injections less painful. For accuracy, we will mark your face before administering the Voluma injections with a fine-gauge needle. After administering Voluma, you may notice some swelling and redness, but this should subside in a few days.
What to Expect
Generally, patients notice the effects of Voluma right away, and typically, the results last about two years. It is rare to experience lasting or severe reactions from Voluma injections; however, if you do have a reaction or concerns, please contact DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics for more information. The most common side effects include slight redness, irritation, or swelling. Usually, patients only have minor symptoms. During your consultation, ask your doctor about how soon to schedule your next treatment to either enhance or extend the effects of Voluma.
