What is Voluma?
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.

Who is a Candidate for VOLUMA?
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.

"My experience at DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery was excellent from start to finish. I had revision work done on my nose - to correct some old problems that have bothered me since 1974, when I had my original rhinoplasty surgery. Surgeon, Dr. Jaimie DeRosa is the best of the best. She did amazing work on my nose, giving me the nose I've always wanted. She was able to lower the tip and make my nose smaller and more delicate looking. And not only is Dr. DeRosa a top notch surgeon, but she is a wonderful, kind, and caring person as well. I cannot say enough about Dr. DeRosa! She and her entire staff are beyond amazing!!"- D.D. / Google / Sep 22, 2023

What to Expect During VOLUMA
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.
How Long is Recovery After VOLUMA?
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 Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa 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.
Juvéderm VOLUMA FAQ
How much does Juvéderm VOLUMA cost?
Your cost for a VOLUMA treatment can vary depending on the amount of product that is required to achieve your cosmetic goals. Since VOLUMA can last as long as two years, you can focus on choosing an experienced injector and avoid anywhere that offers extremely cheap or knock-off injections. Before your first treatment, a team member will evaluate your mid-face and understand your goals before developing your treatment plan. After this, they will estimate the amount of VOLUMA that will be needed for your session and how much it will cost.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that binds water to cells. Along with other functions, it can secure moisture and build volume in the skin. Like other JUVÉDERM fillers, VOLUMA's main ingredient is a synthetic hyaluronic acid. When the hyaluronic acid-based VOLUMA formula is injected into your skin, it restores contour to your cheeks and mid-face area. The HA in VOLUMA also improves your skin's ability to retain moisture — so it is softer and healthier.
How long do the results from VOLUMA last?
With optimal treatments, VOLUMA results can last for up to two years. Right away, you should be able to see improvements from your treatment, which will continue to get better over the next few weeks. You may need several VOLUMA injections, especially if you would like to build up large amounts of volume in your mid-face. In your consultation, your injector will develop your personal VOLUMA plan and discuss when to schedule your next appointment to maintain your results.
