Manufactured from the Juvéderm® family, Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that instantly adds a subtle lift and volume to the cheeks to restore a more youthful contour.

Voluma may be used alone, or in a combination with different filler treatments. Baltimore area patients 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 is more expensive than other injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, because the results last longer. The cost of a Voluma treatment varies, depending on the amount of filler used. Plastic surgeons usually charge up to $1,000 per syringe. Each patient could use between 2 and 6 syringes per session, which means patients can expect to pay between $2,000 and $6,000 per session.
