As you get older, your face goes through a variety of changes. One of the most dramatic changes that can occur is a loss of volume within the cheeks and midface. Losing essential fat and volume in this region of the face can leave you with gaunt or hollow cheeks and sagging skin. Dr. Deborah Farrell can use Juvéderm Voluma® to replenish facial volume and achieve a subtle, youthful lift.
Why Consider Voluma®?
Voluma® is a great option for men and women looking to plump and lift their cheeks and midface to achieve a more youthful appearance. This area of the face can become gaunt and hollow with age, which often leads to problems with sagging skin and poor facial contours. With results lasting for up to two full years, you can enjoy a more youthful appearance for a longer period of time than many other non-surgical options.

How is a Voluma® Treatment Performed?
Dr. Deborah Farrell will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan based on the current state of your face and your desired outcome. Treating each patient as a unique case allows her to provide patients with their best, most natural looking results possible.
Voluma® is administered via injection into the areas around the cheeks and midface. Voluma® contains lidocaine to help minimize any discomfort during or after your treatment. This hyaluronic acid gel fills the area beneath the skin to replenish volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles. By adding volume back into the cheeks, Voluma® can also treat problems of sagging skin and even achieve a subtle lift. Dr. Farrell will discuss how many syringes will be recommended to achieve your desired result.
What is the Voluma® Recovery Like?
There is no to minimal downtime associated with Voluma® treatments. Minor side effects such as bruising or swelling should last no more than a week or two. You should be able to return to work or your daily routine shortly after treatment.
When Will You Notice Your Voluma® Results?
Voluma® will provide you with immediate results. You should notice fuller cheeks and a more youthful overall appearance after treatment. Other concerns such as sagging skin and facial folds may also benefit from treatment with Voluma®. In addition, you will likely experience a subtle lifting of your cheeks. With results lasting for up to two years, you will be able to enjoy a more youthful appearance for a longer period of time.
