The hyaluronic acid-based filler, Voluma, seeks to address the effects of aging that result in flattened or thinning facial skin. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi offers Voluma as a dermal filler to patients who are needing more volume in their cheeks, as well as needing overall wrinkle reduction. The injection is inserted directly into the cheek area for maximum results that are designed to offer a more contoured, plump look. However, prior to your treatment, you will undergo a thorough consultation with Dr. Moradi at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA. From there, a customized treatment plan will be created to address your unique profile.

Because of her attention to detail, personable personality, and knowledge in her field as an aesthetician, i am now receiving routine facials - love them and her! A shout out to Becca as well, who provides laser resurfacing procedures. She is also very knowledgeable, passionate about her work, and very personable.

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 up to 30 minutes. 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 can last up to 2 years.
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.
