Voluma® Injections

Original Skin MedSpa is proud to be one of the first Broomfield providers of Voluma® Injections .  Our Master Level Certified Injectors have trained under the acclaimed Mauricio de Maio, MD from Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Dr. de Maio is an internationally recognized expert using Voluma® for mid-face volume and lifting.

One of the most common signs of facial aging is the loss of volume in the cheek area. Juvederm® Voluma™ XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler approved by the FDA to instantly increase the volume of the cheeks.  The natural-looking results of Voluma® last up to two years with optimal treatment.

How do JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® Injections work?

Juvderm Voluma® is the newest addition to the Juvederm® Hyaluronic Acid (HA) family of products.  Voluma® is an injectable dermal filler that helps to add volume to facial tissue, restoring a smooth and more youthful appearance and can be used to correct many common signs of aging including:

  • Restoring volume to cheeks
  • Smoothing moderate lines around the eyes
  • Smoothing wrinkles around the nose and mouth

Voluma® uses a combination of low and high molecular weight HA.  This contributes to the product’s lift capacity and duration.

How are Voluma® Injections performed?

Voluma® is administered to targeted areas through a smooth-flowing injection, allowing the provider full control to achieve the desired look. Voluma® is formulated with Lidocaine (an anesthetic) to reduce discomfort by numbing the injection area during treatment.

The procedure is non-invasive with minimal downtime or recovery. The total treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes and results are nearly instant. Patients can undergo a full treatment during their lunch hour and go right back to work.

What areas can be treated with Voluma®?

Juvederm® Voluma® is used to treat the cheek area for age-related volume loss.

What makes Juvederm® Voluma® different from other dermal fillers?

Voluma® injectable gel is the first and only FDA approved product to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face.

How long does Voluma® last?

The effects of Juvederm® Voluma® typically last for approximately 9 months to a year from the date of treatment with some patients even enjoying and experiencing the effects for up to 2 years with optimum correction.

What should I know before my treatment?

You should stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil supplements, and other blood thinners for 2 weeks prior to injection, if possible, to decrease your risk of bruising at the injection site. Also, you should not have any dental work for one month prior or two months after your Voluma® injection treatments. If you are taking any other blood thinners, please inform Dr. Day during your visit. We do not recommend any injectable treatment immediately prior to a special event.

What should I expect after Voluma® Injections?

  • Immediate improvement in the treatment areas .
  • Results can vary and you may need more than one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing results.
