Juvéderm VOLUMA is administered to targeted areas through a smooth-flowing injection, allowing Judy 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 has minimal downtime or recovery time. 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.
A week before your procedure, it is recommended that you avoid taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs which thin the blood. This will reduce the risk of bruising at the injection site. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous physical activities or excessive sun and heat exposure as well as the consumption of alcohol, at least for the first 24 hours post injection. Also, don’t massage the injection site unless directed to do so as this may achieve undesirable effects. To reduce swelling, you can prop yourself up with an extra pillow the night of your treatment.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin.
