What is Voluma?
Voluma, an FDA approved gel filler, is most commonly used for cheek augmentation. As people age, a loss of volume can occur in the mid-face. Voluma is a great, nonsurgical alternative to cheek implants, helping to lift and restore volume around the cheeks. Voluma is can last up to 2 years.
Individuals who seek to add volume to their cheeks due to aging or mid-face, facial sagging can be good candidates for Voluma. Voluma enhances the overall appearance of the face and adds a youthful appearance. This procedure is recommended for patients who desire mid-face volume but are not wanting surgery. Patients should speak to their skin care professional to determine an appropriate treatment plan.
"Tammi Dobbs is very attentive and sweet. She really listens to what you have to say always gives options in treatment rather than pushing one. She is by far the best dermatologist I've gone to."- L.B. / Google / Sep 01, 2015

"Went in on 11-7-2017 for follow up checkup. PA Bailey performed it. Scheduled for 9:00 AM. Was called in at 8:58. No wait!PA Bailey did thorough exam and found several "barnacles". She explained that they were precancerous and froze them with liquid nitrogen. This was the first time that I had a good explanation of what was important and what was cosmetic.I had had a Mhos surgery several years ago, and had an exam a year ago by DR Barrows. In both cases the dialog centered on a skin cancer or something that needed biopsy.I feel good about the exam and the removal of growths on this visit. We all get warts and barnacles after we turn 50. This office does a good job of keeping them from being cancerous.I used the restroom in the waiting area. There is a placard with both male and female symbols. It is a one holer with no urinal and a lockable door. I guess this covers males, females, trans genders, Bis, and not sure. Added this comment because of the question after the comment section.I recommend this practice for all seniors with sun exposure."- L.B. / Yelp / Nov 08, 2017
"Dr. Barrows, Ms. Rachel and staff have unequivocally brought me out of a exhausting self loathing State of mind from a hereditary facial issue that I attempted to self resolve for years. Dr. Barrows straightforwardness and Ms.Rachel's empathy with after care has been invaluable. I am extremely thankful.."- D.C. / Google / Sep 18, 2017

What to Expect
Following their Voluma injection, patients can see immediate results. Patients may experience some swelling and redness, as well as tenderness on and around the cheek area; however, this will go away after a few hours or days. Exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours after the injections. Patients will notice a fuller, smoother, younger looking complexion and a naturally lifted look. These results typically last up to 2 full years.
