In the case of Juvederm Voluma, these injections will be into the skin of the cheek. Your dermatologist will administer multiple small doses in a way that ensures an ideal look once the filler has settled.
Most fillers are typically injected into the nasolabial folds like your laugh lines, but VOLUMA goes deeper and is applied to the top of the cheek bones, allowing physicians to reverse the signs of aging by restoring lost volume and lifting the face.
Voluma syringes are typically one cc and many patients need between two and four syringes to complete the treatment, which can be one to two syringes per cheek.
'Cheek fillers' (I.e. juvederm Voluma) are frequently placed onto bone. As always, if you are dissatisfied with or concerned regarding your results I would recommend following up with your provider to discuss your concerns.
In the 2-3 weeks after the injections, your facial fillers will settle in and you will see the full results. You are recommended to return for a follow-up analysis visit to guarantee your outcomes are as you expected. While facial fillers are short-lived, Voluma has the highest durability, lasting nearly 2 years.
Any special instructions after Voluma injections? Patients should not exercise and should avoid heat and sun exposure for at least 24 hours after Voluma injections to minimize the risk of swelling and bruising. Patients are given ice packs to use for a few minutes after their injections.
Answer: Fillers improvement over time.
Once the fillers settle in, and your tissue heals from injections, your results can truly be seen as they are! Voluma and Volbella are hyaluronic acid fillers, which do not stimulate collagen on their own.
While it is possible for fillers to migrate, this side effect is extremely rare and can be avoided by choosing a qualified injector. Though filler migration is very uncommon, its likelihood increases when fillers are performed by an inexperienced or underqualified injector.
Do they lift like a facelift? Never. However, they do provide a bit of a lift or give the illusion of lifting. Cheek fillers also provide volume to the face.
Dermal fillers can be used to restore mid-face (cheek) volume and sculpt the jawline, in order to reduce the appearance of sagging jowls. The procedure is not painful, does not require any significant down-time and is excellent at lifting and sculpting the skin, where volume needs to be replaced.
Answer: Voluma Amounts
To make a noticeable difference you will need at least 1 syringe per cheek. You may even want more filler, but start there and let it settle for two weeks and you could always return for more.
Voluma is part of the Juvederm family of filler products and is specially designed to lift and contour the cheeks.
Depending on the injection site and amount of dermal filler, most HA fillers last from 6 – 12 months on average. Regardless of which dermal filler you use, two or three syringes are almost always recommended in order to achieve the most gorgeous outcomes.
I recommend that you do not massage the filler as you do not want to press too hard and/or move the filler into the wrong place. Lumps and bumps usually resolve on their own, once the filler starts to get incorporated with your own skin tissue.
2. Filler choice. The appropriate depth of placement depends on the type of wrinkle filler used. As Juvederm Voluma is a medium-depth HA filler, it should be injected into the deeper dermis of the skin.
SIDE EFFECTS OF VOLUMA
Because of where Voluma is injected, the cheeks can be sore and feel hard to the touch. This usually lasts a week after the injection. Un-evenness between one side of the face and the other early after the injection is normal.
Dermal fillers can help offset this loss of facial volume in a non-invasive fashion that replenishes youthfulness and vitality. The filler will be injected into the hollows that occur midway between the lower lids and the cheeks, improving the appearance of the tear troughs as well as undereye bags.
Facial fillers are very effective at dealing with deep wrinkles such as marionette lines. They gently plump out the wrinkles, resulting in a smoother appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume to your cheeks, replacing the diminishing fat pads in that area.
Many plastic surgeons say that Juvederm and Restylane are the most durable and longest-lasting fillers available. Both contain hyaluronic acid and are good for smoothing wrinkles and lines. Hyaluronic acid carries 1,000 times its weight in water and makes the skin look young, supple, and soft.
Please do not sleep on your sides and try to stay sleeping flat on your back. Please avoid from wearing large earrings or clip on earring that would squish the product and leave a mark. The product will fully settle in about 1-2 weeks.
Avoid itching, or picking around the injection site. Avoid applying intense heat to the treated area, that includes hot tubs, saunas, sunbathing or tanning. Don't drink alcohol the day of treatment, and try to avoid it for 2 days after. Avoid exercising for 2 days or until swelling subsides.
Lumpiness is very common to feel in your skin in the days after injection of dermal filler into the face, including the upper lip body and the cheeks and the chin area and along wrinkles and folds when injected to lift these. It will usually resolve within a couple of weeks.
Some patients like to sleep on their back the first night after treatment, although there is no hard evidence that sleeping position might affect your filler treatment. Avoid sleeping on your face for a week after treatment.
The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. These side effects are consistent with other facial-injection procedures.
