At Kind Health Group in Encinitas, CA, our MedSpa team performs injections of Voluma to correct sunken cheeks that are flat and hollow due to weight loss, genetics, or age. With results that last up to two years, Juvéderm Voluma is a dermal filler with hyaluronic acid (HA) to help your skin look smoother and feel softer. Schedule a consultation to learn about how Voluma injectable treatments at Kind Health Group can refresh your appearance by increasing fullness and lift.
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that is best for adding contour and lift to your cheeks. Many patients notice decreased volume of their cheeks as they get older or if they have lost a large amount of weight. Some patients may have been born with thin cheeks and want treatment to plump their face. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not get injectable treatments. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over the age of 21. You will have a consultation to determine if Voluma is the best choice for you. Based on your needs, goals, and medical history, a unique treatment plan will be formed.

"This place is tucked away just off the 5 and Santa Fe drive. The atmosphere when entering falls more on the side of medical office than med spa; it emotes a well decorated, clean, cozy, professional, vibe. Refreshments and snacks are available while you wait, and staff is friendly. Definitely a boutique medical office experience. I was extremely happy with the level of care and attention I received from front desk staff and medical staff alike. I received some cosmetic services that were easily, knowledgeably, and well administered, and will definitely be returning. The prices alarr competitive, reasonable, and appropriate. I was so happy with my results, and the entire experience!"- H.A. / Yelp / Jul 10, 2019

"I have been going two kind health for a year and the person I see is Annie. She is a health coach I came in for sculpting and Doctor Nana said I think that you need something different and she recommended Annie and I have been so thoroughly thrilled in the 12-month I changed my habits I have reduced my weight from 194 to 157 today. She helped me to look at things differently and I'm still working on myself and I'm doing other things but she gave me the guidance that kind of got my brain clicked in to take better care of myself I'm very proud of her and she is a very patient person and she did not push me. And in May I just had my 75th birthday and for me to change like this at this time in life is not quite a miracle but maybe just short of one. I do give a lot of the credit to Annie for her help so if you want somebody to be your health coach about things that are not necessarily exactly Medical but please call in and go by and see them it's a really fabulous office just like other people have reviewed the front desk staff it's nice and clean and presentable and very soothing that helps the process from the minute you walk through the door. Karen gives great big kudos to everyone there and especially thanks Annie"- K.E. / Yelp / Jun 20, 2019
Once you've had a consultation, your injection may be scheduled for another day or performed the same day, depending on availability. In our minor procedures room, you will relax while your skin is cleansed before the injections. The injector can also apply a numbing cream to make the treatment less painful if desired. For precision, your injector will mark your face before administering the Voluma injections with a fine needle. After the Voluma has been applied, you may have some swelling and redness, but this typically subsides in a few days.
What to Expect
For most patients, the effects of Voluma injections are visible immediately and typically last around two years. It is unusual to experience severe or lasting side effects from Voluma, but if you do have concerns or a reaction, please call Kind Health Group for assistance. The most common side effects are slight redness, irritation, or swelling of the injection site. These symptoms are usually very minor. Ask your injector about when to make your next procedure to either increase or extend the results of Voluma.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Voluma cost?
Costs for a Voluma treatment can vary depending on how much product is used to match your aesthetic goals. Since Voluma lasts up to two years, you should focus on selecting a skilled injector and avoid anywhere offering extremely cheap or knock-off injections. Prior to your first injection, a team member will examine your face and listen to your goals before creating your custom treatment plan. After this, they can discuss the amount of Voluma that will be needed for your treatment and how much it will cost.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that works to bind water to cells. Along with other functions, it can hold moisture and create fullness in the skin. Like other Juvéderm fillers, Voluma's main ingredient is a synthetic version of HA. When Voluma's hyaluronic acid-based formula is injected into your skin, it can restore contour to your cheeks. The HA also helps your skin hold moisture so it's softer and healthier compared to before your treatment.
How long do the results from Voluma last?
With optimal treatments, the results of Voluma last for up to two years. You should be able to see improvements from your treatment right away, which will continue to develop over the next few weeks. You may need several Voluma treatments, especially if you would like to build up large amounts of volume in your cheeks. During your consultation, your injector will develop your custom Voluma plan and suggest how often you should schedule treatments to achieve and sustain your goals.
Is there any downtime needed after a Voluma treatment?
Following a Voluma treatment, you can return to your normal activities. However, it is suggested that strenuous activities, like exercise, be avoided for the first 24 hours after your treatment. Your injector will explain post-treatment instructions to ensure your results last and look great. You may want to apply a cold compress to the injection sites to reduce swelling and bruising. Your injector may also advise sleeping with your head propped up by a few pillows. You should not touch your face to prevent spreading the filler to unwanted areas.
What are the possible side effects of Voluma?
Some patients experience some bruising and swelling at the injection sites for 2 – 4 weeks after their treatment. Other common temporary side effects include tenderness, firmness, bumps, discomfort, and redness. If they appear, injection side effects are usually mild or moderate. If you have any concerns, lasting side effects, or you develop signs of an infection, contact Kind Health Group.
