Instantly restore volume in the cheeks for more youthful facial contours with Voluma. It is manufactured by the same company behind Juvéderm with the same hyaluronic acid base, and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale, treats patients with Voluma on a regular basis. To delay the signs of aging without surgery, volume is replenished with this injectable filler in the cheek area, giving an appearance of rounder, shapelier cheeks. Voluma is directly injected around the hollows of the cheeks, which reduces wrinkles and creases. It is also used as an alternative to silicone-based fillers for cheek augmentation for individuals who have naturally flat cheeks.
"I had two procedures done earlier this year by Dr. Mata. The tummy tuck was in January 2016 and following after in February, thigh lift. After working out so many years, it was the excess skin and fat I had removed. For all my future procedures and for friends and family, I definitely recommend Dr. Mata. Growing up with physicians in my family ( my mother was a Pediatrician), he has a wonderful disposition very reminiscent of the days when doctors cared and took all the time you needed to address concerns. Dr. Mata also made sure I was mentally prepared for the procedures and was 100% transparent with what I can expect. It's not a form of weight loss, but body sculpting. He has a very nurturing way about him as well. My healing experience has been the most positive under his care and the care of the staff. You are given written directions and the nurses will answer any questions you have. After the procedures, of course, new clothes feel great in smaller sizes, but it's not seeing the unwanted skin and fat, always getting larger sizes to disguise my trouble spots that brings me happiness. I have no regrets. I highly recommend Dr. Mata and I'm so grateful. My arms are next! :-)"- L.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2016
"Dr. Mata and his team are wonderful right from the begging everyone was just so profesional. The day of the surgery I was a bit nervous but all that went away. Out of surgery I thought I was going to feel like crap but no I really did not have pain all my meds were ready for me so I was so confortable My swelling was going down daily. I feel great I highly recomed Dr. Mata."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jul 04, 2019
"I came in for a dermal infusion with Danielle, and I must say it was truly amazing! She did such a spectacular job on my face, and ensured I felt comfortable at ALL times. She carefully listened and acknowledged all of my concerns with my troubled area on my face. I felt like she went above and beyond, considering how badly these nasty pores were. She recommended steps for aftercare and will defiantly come back for all of my facial needs with Danielle! Overall, the front staff was warm and welcoming. Love love love my results can’t stress it enough! Can’t wait to come back!"- J.Q. / Google / Jul 02, 2019

"As a patient you want a doctor who knows this is the most important thing in your life. Dr. Mata insists on as much follow up as necessary. I myself have been back 6 times in three weeks to check on my healing process to make sure it's done right! Most doctors only see you maybe once after a procedure to get a good after photo. Dr. Mata offers the best in care as he is more concerned that you are taking care of yourself and seeing your results. He coaches you the whole way through because he really cares. He is doing the most advanced procedures because he is always up on the latest in technology. Login to his Instagram account and you can see him in action giving details on just how detailed his work is!! Thank you Dr. Mata for giving me the care and attention you do and let's not forget my natural results!"- A.C. / Yelp / May 31, 2019
What to Expect
Voluma is injected into the skin with fine needles, so some patients may experience some minor pain from the initial prick. Numbing creams may be applied on the injection site to ease the patient’s discomfort. Patients also have the option to use lidocaine, which is mixed with the Voluma solution, to help provide anesthetic effects in and around the area. A treatment may last from 10 minutes to 1 hour. Patients will be able to return to daily activities after several hours. There may be some swelling, discoloration and tenderness around the cheeks, but will subside after a few days. Results are readily evident, and may last up to 2 years.
Is Hyaluronic Acid Natural?
Hyaluronic acid, Voluma’s main ingredient, is derived from natural substances found in the human body. Its main function is cell hydration, and with its cross-linking abilities, it is generally useful in helping facial areas that lack volume. Over time, the gel substance breaks down and is absorbed naturally by the body without any side effects.
Those who seek improved volume in the cheeks may consider Voluma as a noninvasive solution. The lack of cheek volume may be due to aging or the patient’s natural facial structure. The doctor will be able to recommend if Voluma is the best option during the initial consultation.
How Long Is Recovery?
Right after treatment, patients will be able to resume to their normal routine with restriction on strenuous activities or any movement that may put pressure on the treated area. It may take up to 1 week before the derma filler settles within the cheek pockets.
Among derma fillers available in the market today, Voluma may last up to 2 years or longer. Reinjection varies as patients’ bodies process and break down hyaluronic acid at different rates.
