"I had a syringe of Voluma done on each side of my face. I have had filler and Botox many times so I didn't find this painful. Of course, Dr. Alex makes sure you're nice and numb before the procedure anyway as they have to inject this at a deeper level. I absolutely love the voluma as it just makes you look refreshed and not like you have a face full of filler. I'm 47 and needed a bit of a pick me up as I have some volume loss. It definitely lifted my skin. Dr. Alex and his staff were wonderful and Dr. Alex really takes his time. I would do Voluma again!"
"Wow! I have researched fillers and their lasting quality and ratings a lot before I chose Voluma and [Dr.] Alex was so helpful in guiding my choice to do so, and once we had a game plan, I was so pleased with the artistry and attention to detail to where I should use it and where not to. So after the immediate results and no down time , I am an instant fan of the stuff and A and E are ROCKSTARS! Thank you."

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. In addition to its use as an aesthetic treatment, hyaluronic acid has also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair.
Is treatment with Juvéderm® Voluma painful?
There may be discomfort as with any Injection, but Juvéderm® Voluma contains a numbing ingredient to provide comfort. The smooth consistency gel of Juvéderm® Voluma allows Dr. Alex to administer it easily and smoothly. And, Juvéderm® Voluma is injected directly into the skin using a very fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. At A E Skin we numb the treatment area with a topical cream to provide even more comfort.
What are the possible side effects of Juvéderm® Voluma?
Treating wrinkles with Juvéderm® Voluma is fast and safe and leaves no scars or other traces on the face. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (seven days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injections site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection. People with a history of cold sores may experience a recurrence after the treatment, although this can be minimized by the use of antiviral medicines.
What makes Juvéderm® Voluma different from other dermal fillers?
Juvéderm® Voluma is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved for treatment of the mid face and the only one shown to last up to two years after initial treatment. The manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. All other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels.
