WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR JUVEDERM VOLUMA?
Virtually anyone with volume loss in their midface is a candidate for treatment with Voluma, as well as individuals with poorly defined cheekbones. Patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s may not be appropriate candidates for surgery, but may benefit instead from Voluma treatment. Patients in their 60s and beyond who have more significant skin laxity and volume loss tend to require more filler volume. And while these patients are often good candidates for surgery, they often choose volumizing filler treatments due to surgery concerns such as anesthesia and potential complications.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH A JUVEDERM VOLUMA TREATMENT?
Treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to perform. The treatments involve very small needles, and are virtually painless due to the numbing cream and Dr. Greene’s gentle injection technique. After Dr. Retief injects the Voluma, she then massages the area to ensure that it is properly distributed. Patients may return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
