The hyaluronic acid-based filler, Voluma, seeks to address the effects of aging that result in flattened or thinning facial skin.

From there, a customized treatment plan will be created to address your unique profile.

"I Only Trust Dr. Moradi with my Face - Dr. Moradi and his staff has taken care of me for 15 years. I just had my nose done and I couldn't be happier. He takes very careful care of everything he does. The one thing that impresses me about him is he insists on NOT doing things that you dont need or is going to make you look un natural. Then there is Veronica, his assistant. She has a soothing way about her, a perfect..."- H. / RealSelf / Jul 31, 2018
"I give Dr. Moradi an A++ for his art and professionalism; he is a wonderful expert In his field- I highly recommend him and the great staff for energy, attitude and impeccable communication with patient/clients. I have occasionally received very mild Botox applications to the forehead area but am looking forward to some more heavy duty spider vein removal in the legs. Such I gem-- and extremely reasonable!

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.
