Juvederm Voluma® – Vero Beach FL
Real Patients *
I’ve been using Voluma and doing ultherapy for the last 3 years. I have spent so much money. The Voluma works but it doesn’t last or the ultherapy. Only about 6-8 months. So I decided to fly down from Atlanta to Vero Beach, FL to see Dr. Pierone. The leading doctor for Bellafill across the [...]
As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
VOLUMA® is a smooth consistency, synthetic gel made of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. In fact, studies show superior results of VOLUMA® compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. And, almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both VOLUMA® injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred VOLUMA®! In addition, VOLUMA® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
With VOLUMA®, the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor’s office for treatment and step right back into your life.
Dr. Pierone is the leading injector of Bellafill® in the United States and is a nationally recognized trainer and researcher. He has performed over 20,000 procedures with dermal fillers.
How Does it Work?
VOLUMA® injectable gel is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment.
VOLUMA® is eased under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis-the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis-to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. VOLUMA® injectable gel is used most effectively for those wrinkles and folds in the lower third of your face, like your “laugh lines”, “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), or “marionette lines” (oral commissures).
VOLUMA® is a “next-generation” filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. VOLUMA® injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.
A Unique Manufacturing Process
VOLUMA® employs its unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results.
Side effects were usually mild to moderate lasting 7 days or less and included temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps.
Before and After
What to Expect During Treatment
Because VOLUMA® injectable gel is a simple, nonsurgical treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can make an appointment for treatment get right back to your life right after. Here’s what to expect:
Before you go: Some doctors recommend that you avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), for at least a week prior to treatment in order to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
When you arrive: If this is your first visit, your healthcare professional will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take, and will tell you more about wrinkle treatment with VOLUMA®. VOLUMA® injectable gel does not require an allergy test.
Before the procedure: Although anesthesia is not required, your healthcare professional may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.
The procedure: Your healthcare professional will ease the VOLUMA® injectable gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, your healthcare professional may gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes.
After the procedure: With VOLUMA®, there is minimal recovery or downtime.
Important Safety Information
For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. After the treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period. Your healthcare professional will tell you when makeup may be applied after your treatment.
Seeing results: You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last up to 6 months or more. However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental “touch up” treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
The extent of the procedure may involve one or several areas of the face, and the appropriate dosage for each area may vary, making it difficult to provide a meaningful cost estimate until you are examined by a doctor.
The average cost for VOLUMA® $800 per syringe. 2-5+ syringes per average treatment. Product duration is 12-24 months.

What is hyaluronic acid (HA)?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found on your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds.
What are the different types of wrinkles?
There are two different types of wrinkles:
- Dynamic wrinkles are caused when muscles contract to make facial expressions such as smiles and frowns.
- Static wrinkles develop because our skin’s natural substances (such as collagen and hyaluronic acid), which provide structure and volume, decrease over time.
What is JUVEDERM VOLUMA®?
