Voluma is a part of the popular Juvéderm family of products that can counteract hollow, sunken cheeks that age the face. New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Dana Khuthaila uses Voluma in several areas of the cheeks, including the apex, the apples, and any sunken areas. Dr. Khuthaila finds that many of her patients instantly look younger after their cheeks have been restored. Voluma includes lidocaine, a numbing agent, to increase patient comfort during the procedure and it may be used with other wrinkle fillers for more dramatic results. Volumamay only be used on patients over 21 years old.

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.
