Voluma

Voluma

Lift, smooth, or plump your way to natural looking results that last. Voluma is the best filler to restore volume loss in the cheeks and give yourself a little lift.

This filler is made of a synthetic substance known as hyaluronic acid. Treatment with hyaluronic products typically takes less than one hour (individual treatment times may vary). Generally, there is little to no downtime associated with treatment.

Pre-Treatment Guidelines

  • Avoid using aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), St. John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • Plan to arrive to the office an hour prior to your scheduled appointment time for topical numbing.

Post-Treatment

  • Use cold compresses to reduce swelling.
  • Avoid touching the treated area for the first six hours following treatment, so you do not accidentally injure your skin while the area is numb. After six hours, the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
  • Avoid exposure to intense heat (sun lamp or sunbathing) or cold.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
  • After treatment some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness may occur. These are typically mild and normally last less than 14 days.

Important Safety Considerations

  • Products should not be used during pregnancy, when breastfeeding, or in patients under 18 years for nasolabial folds.
  • Use at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. In these instances, product use could delay healing or make your skin problems worse.
  • Rarely, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur.
  • Products with hyaluronic acid should NOT be used by people with previous bad allergies, particularly to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria, or by people with serious allergies to drugs that have previously required in-hospital treatment.

"So impressed with everyone there! Dr. Lily Talakoub is amazing and I would send anyone and everyone to her! I was referred by a girlfriend and I can't thank her enough! My Botox and fillers are far better than I expected and look 10 years younger. Plus it's a gorgeous and clean office and everyone is so sweet and helpful! Can't say enough good things about this place! Thank you for going beyond my expectations!" - Hannah G., Falls Church, VA

"Dr Lily is more knowledgeable than the derms I've been to in DC, she's also friendly and most important honest. She will actually tell you no if you don't need something. Love love this practice!!!" - Kelly L., Mclean, VA

"I've seen Dr. Lily twice - once for a consultation (adult acne and hyperpigmentation) and a second time for a Fraxel laser treatment. I got a great vibe from her the moment I met her and her staff is really top notch. They have always been kind, informative and honest. The ride to McLean is definitely worth it!" - Tarah S., Alexandria, VA

"5 star is not enough for Dr Lily and her staff!! She is the best dermatologist I have ever seen ... I have been to her office for both medical and cosmetics reasons and were happy with both!!! I highly recommend Dr Lily.. She is also very friendly and pretty :)." - Mahsa A., Reston, VA

"I strongly recommend McLean Dermatology and Skin Care Center. They were able to get me in the day after I called because they had a cancellation. I was going to have to wait approximately 6 months to get into other places in the area. Everyone is very friendly, and the office is beautiful, which is an added bonus!" - Jessica M., Mclean, VA
