Overview

As some men and women age, they may experience a natural loss of volume in their cheeks. This creates a sunken, gaunt look that can be addressed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Timothy Mountcastle, with a derma filler. From the Juvéderm® family, Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that instantly adds a subtle lift and volume in the cheeks to restore a more youthful contour to the face and profile. Formulated with lidocaine for added comfort, Voluma painlessly addresses the hollows of the cheeks and improve wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Patients, at the Ashburn, VA Mountcastle Medical Spa considering Voluma, should be at least 21 years of age. 

What to Expect

Using a think syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site. 

Voluma FAQs

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.

Best Candidate?

The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.

Any Downtime?

There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.

Lasting Results?

The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
