Voluma is an FDA-approved injectable filler that helps to improve the appearance of the face by adding volume to the cheeks. Patients in Jacksonville, FL, can begin looking younger and refreshed after receiving this treatment by one of our highly skilled and board certified surgeons. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, we use Voluma to help our patients meet their cosmetic goals without requiring invasive surgery. Voluma is proven to last for up to two (2) years and patients have often returned for more treatment, as the results are remarkable.
What to Expect
Using a think syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.
The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
"I am writing this article in praise of my Aesthetician, Chris Weber at PVPS. I recently had a small procedure done and was concerned about post surgery care and maintenance of my lid area of my eye which is very delicate. I have been going to Chris at PVPS for several years now and thoroughly have enjoyed her tips and especially the expert and thorough knowledge she expends through years of her attending the most advanced progressive symposia's and certifications in skincare. My skin always looks marvelous when I follow in her advice on skincare and many family and friends have now made PVPS their skincare meca of choice and Chris as their Aesthetician. No matter if I choose to use the skincare that she recommends after she utilizes on a facial for me or to first "test drive" the skincare products I always return to get those products because quite honestly my skin just looks and feels better! Again, I returned to Chris to follow up and heed her suggestions of what would help firm, moisturize and keep my delicate eye area looking tight and smooth. I have been following this regimen and gotten many compliments. I started out after having several different skincare specialists after moving to Jacksonville but have stayed with Chris simply because I love her amazing deep cleansing facial's and how I look and feel afterward. I expected the best at PVPS but certainly surprised that Chris has elevated my experience far beyond my own expectations, she is superior at her craft! Chris is the total package for indulgence, experience and complete relaxation!"- L.W. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2015

"Hands down the most talented group of plastic surgeons in Florida! I had surgery with Dr. Snyder and only wish I had done it sooner. Every staff member, from those who answered the phone to those who took out my stitches, were so compassionate and caring. I know that I will be back in a few years (give or take!) if I decide to have anything else done."- N.J. / Google / Mar 10, 2018
"Dr. Hickman is an incredible doctor. After being diagnosed with breast surgery I decided on a double mastectomy. She performed the surgery a couple of weeks ago and has been taking care of me since. She has got to be the most caring doctor I’ve ever met!"- G.G. / Facebook / Feb 23, 2018
"I had surgery with Dr. Rumsey about 5 weeks ago. He is amazing! This group is wonderful. The nurses who helped me before & after surgery were so sweet & caring. His nurse, Melissa, was super helpful with any questions I had/have pre & post op. I love my results, and highly recommend him & his team."- T.B. / Facebook / Dec 22, 2017
Voluma is more expensive than other injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, because the results last longer. The cost of a Voluma treatment varies, depending on the amount of filler used. Plastic surgeons usually charge up to $1,000 per syringe. Each patient could use between 2 and 6 syringes per session, which means patients can expect to pay between $2,000 and $6,000 per session.
