What Are the Side Effects of Voluma?

Voluma is the first FDA-cleared dermal filler to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face. It provides instant long-lasting results with minimal downtime. Voluma has been shown in some studies to improve volume and overall facial contour for up to two-years.

Voluma restoration treatments can be performed same-day in-office. The short 15-minute procedure consists of locating optimal injection sites and the actual injection itself. Volume can be added to the mid-face area to rejuvenate sunken cheeks with the minimally-invasive procedure.

Because Juvederm Voluma gel contains lidocaine, no other anesthetic is necessary. You may feel a slight pinch as the micro-needle is inserted but the majority of patients don’t have any issues. The numbing lidocaine solution helps keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure.

Side effects with Voluma injections are typically rare but can affect every patient differently. You may experience mild-to-moderate swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These symptoms should pass within a few weeks. Any pain or discomfort can be easily managed with over-the-counter medications.

Due to the long-lasting results and minimal discomfort that comes with the treatments, Voluma has a high 86% worth-it rating on RealSelf. If you have sunken cheeks or age-related mid-facial volume loss, you may want to consider Juvederm Voluma as a viable solution. In fact, this is Levy Dermatology’s favorite filler!
