Overview
Dr. Douglas Hendricks was the first doctor to use Voluma in Orange County and he continues using it because of its amazing results. Voluma (part of the Juvederm family) is made with a synthetic version of hyalauronic acid (HA), a substance found naturally in the body to keep skin hydrated and firm. Voluma is often used to correct hollow, sunken cheeks that make the face look older and unhealthy. Dr. Hendricks applies Voluma strategically to his patients from the Orange County and Los Angeles area to restore youthful contours to the face at his office, Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center in Newport Beach, California.
 
What to Expect
Using a think syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. 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.

Voluma FAQs
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
Best Candidate?
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
Any Downtime?
There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.
