34 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

As the first FDA-approved filler intended solely to add volume to the cheeks, Juvéderm has been proven to be safe and effective. In addition to volume, Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Sumpter, injects Voluma to provide a subtle lift and restore lost contour to the cheeks. The filler can improve all areas of the cheeks: the higher, lower and central portions. Since volume loss can age a patient, this is a great age-reversing treatment. Best of all, once Dr. Sumpter injects Voluma, effects are noticed almost immediately and these results can last between 16 and 24 months for a natural-looking appearance.

 

What to Expect

Many patients prefer Voluma over other dermal fillers since it offers the longest lasting results, usually up to 2 years. The plastic surgeon will discuss ways that the patient can care for their face immediately after the treatment and what they can do to prolong their results. The plastic surgeon will also talk to the patient about when to schedule their next injection to maintain their results.

Administering Voluma

Voluma treatments usually take about 30 minutes, but the time can vary based on the needs and goals of the patient. Voluma is injected using a fine needle that causes most patients initial discomfort, but no pain. However, the patient can request a numbing cream be used before the treatment to increase their comfort. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, can also be added to the Voluma treatment to numb the treated areas. Patients will be able to see some results immediately, but full results will be revealed after the swelling, discoloration, and tenderness subsides in a few days. Patients can resume normal activities as soon as they feel able, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 1 day.

Expected Cost

Voluma is a more expensive injectable filler because it uses an advanced formula that lasts longer than most fillers. Voluma lasts an average of 2 years and costs around $800 - $900 per syringe. The number of syringes used will vary based on the number of areas being treated, the severity of the wrinkles, and the patient's cosmetic goals.
