Voluma is an FDA-approved dermal filler that not only adds volumes to hollow cheeks but adds lift and in the process can fill in lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Voci, uses this filler to replenish volume that has been lost due to aging or to plump up cheeks that are naturally flat. The results are fuller cheeks with a natural contour that gives a healthier, more youthful appearance. Voluma is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body and lidocaine, a local anesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort.

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.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?@headingTag>
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.
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.
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.
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.
