What is Voluma?
As part of the Juvéderm family of fillers, Voluma is another safe and effective dermal filler that targets cheeks in aging patients. The role of this gel filler is to restore lost volume and contour cheeks, which have hollowed out and taken on a sunken look due to the aging process. San Antonio dermatologist, Dr. Garcia, will determine the most appropriate area of the mid-face to inject this FDA-approved filler for optimal results. The light consistency absorbs well into the skin, leading to a natural look and feel. Results from Voluma can last up to 2 years.
Voluma is appropriate for any candidate who seeks to add volume to their cheeks due to aging or mid-face, facial sagging. Voluma enhances the overall appearance of the face and adds a youthful essence, essentially providing patients with a liquid facelift. This procedure is perfect for patients who desire mid-face volume, but are not wanting surgery. Patients should speak to their dermatologist to determine an appropriate treatment plan.

"I have been to a lot of doctors: more than my share since I was diagnosed with several autoimmune diseases s little over 10 years ago. I was referred to Sonterra Dermatology by my rheumatologist because I had a psoriasis type condition on my scalp, apparently due to high inflammation levels because of my autoimmune diseases. At the same time I was being treated by a wound care center for an extremely large ulcer on my right ankle and their treatment was going nowhere. Dr. Gro...ff took it upon herself to try to help me with this and has shown much compassion for my situation. She is one of the few doctors who I feel genuinely cares about me. She has somehow been able to get topical medications approved by my pharmacy insurance for larger quantities so that I pay less out of pocket. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a compassionate doctor who treats you like family and not just another patient."- J.W. / Facebook / Apr 13, 2018
"Always pleasant staff and Dr. Garcia is friendly and helpful."- B.R. / Demandforce / Apr 13, 2018
Voluma is injected through a tiny needle directly into the marked injection sites on the face. The dermatologist will inject the filler layer by layer until the desired contour has been achieved. Prior to the injection, a numbing agent will be applied to the skin so that the patient does not feel any major discomfort. The appointment typically lasts about an hour.
What to Expect
Patients should expect to see immediate results following their Voluma injection. Patients may experience some swelling and redness, as well as tenderness on and around the cheek area, however, this will go away after a few hours. Exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours after the injections. Patients will notice a fuller, smoother, younger looking complexion and a naturally lifted look. These results typically last up to 2 full year in most patients.

On average, a full syringe of Voluma can cost betweeen $750-$950. The number of syringes needed for treatment varies per patient and it is typical for a single treatment to require more than one syringe of product. Patients should keep in mind that the results of Voluma last longer than other injectable fillers, and that over time the cost of additional treatments using other fillers may equate or succeed to a single treatment of Voluma. Patients will have the opportunity to discuss treatment options with their dermatologist during their consultation prior to treatment.
