What is VOLUMA™?
Voluma™ is a facial filler part of the Juvederm family of hyaluronic acid fillers. It was designed to restore lost volume to areas of the face such as your cheeks, cheekbones, and your chin. In some cases, it can even be used to add definition to a patient’s jawline.

Voluma™ on takes minutes to restore that youthful firm state to your face and will define your natural facial features with no downtime. Since there is no downtime, patients can return to their daily activities immediately following their Voluma™ treatment.
How Does VOLUMA™ Work?
As we age, gravity and loss of our skins natural elasticity and loss of facial fat cause us to have narrower forehead and temple area and a heavier, wider jaw line. Voluma™ helps to correct this by returning the lost volume to those sunken in areas and helps to restore a well-defined jawline.
Juvederm™ Voluma™ helps restore facial balance and youthful beauty simply by adding volume back to these areas that are now lacking proper definition due to the aging process or extreme loss of weight. Dr. Jacono frequently uses this facial filler to re-volumize the chin, cheeks, and cheekbones. When Voluma™ is placed deep into the tissues, it adds lift and support to the overlying skin restoring a more natural facial contour.
Areas of the face that Voluma™ is good for include:
- Cheeks – Voluma™ helps lift and restore a natural and plumper cheek
- Chin – Voluma™ is a great filler to give better definition to your chin and Dr. Jacono regularly uses this to help give men a more defined and chiseled looking chin.
Voluma™ when combined Botox along the neck and jawline allows Dr. Jacono to do a non-surgical necklift and restore a natural and more youthful appearance.
