VOLUMA® in Orange County

High, full cheeks are part of what make a person’s face look youthful. As you age, however, you may notice that your cheeks have begun to lose volume and that your skin isn’t as firm as it once was.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved facial filler that restores cheeks in a natural-looking way. The product is one of several fillers Dr. Sikorski offers in the JUVÉDERM line that makes use of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance present in your skin that helps retain moisture and add softness and volume. Like other JUVÉDERM products, VOLUMA® in Orange County uses a modified form of hyaluronic acid to provide a smooth-textured filler with lasting effectiveness.

The Benefits of VOLUMA®

VOLUMA® helps our patients:

  • Reverse loss of volume and flattening in the midface. Dr. Sikorski’s approach to treatment provides a very natural-looking outcome. She focuses on adding fullness in and around the cheek, creating smooth transitions, and subtly shaping the face so that light and shadow highlight features in an attractive, younger-looking way.
  • Get immediate improvement and lasting results. Following your treatment with VOLUMA®, you should be able to see aesthetic benefits right away. Results can last for up to two years, at which point you can receive another treatment.
  • Experience no downtime. Facial fillers like VOLUMA® do not require surgery. As a result, there’s no uncomfortable or lengthy recovery, and you can return to normal activities after treatment.

Your Initial Consultation for VOLUMA®

Patients begin with an appointment at Natural Image OC. You will find that our practice offers a warm and welcoming professional environment staffed by a knowledgeable and engaging team. During your visit, you will meet with Dr. Sikorski to discuss:

  • What you’d like to achieve with treatment.
  • The specific features you want to address.
  • The motivations behind your decision to receive aesthetic care.

The extensive time and personalized attention she brings to the patient consultation is one of the factors that distinguish her work. Dr. Sikorski will look beyond prescribing treatments and procedures and collaboratively decide with you what a successful outcome looks like, both immediately after care and for months or years to come.

If you are a good candidate for VOLUMA® in Orange County, Dr. Sikorski will recommend areas in and around the cheeks to target with treatment. She will also answer any questions you have and advise you about aftercare.

Receiving Treatment

In many cases, patients can receive VOLUMA® immediately following their initial consultation. Here is an overview of what to expect:

Making You Comfortable

Our practice can provide a variety of measures that reduce sensitivity. For most patients, we will apply numbing cream to the area of treatment, which will take about one-half hour to go into effect and which can significantly improve comfort. Ice can also work to block sensation. If you are particularly anxious about treatment, we encourage you to talk to Dr. Sikorski about other measures, including sedation. Our priorities are your comfort and safety.

Injecting VOLUMA®

Like most facial fillers, VOLUMA® is an injectable product. Dr. Sikorski will use an extremely small-gauge needle to deliver VOLUMA® in targeted areas in and around your cheeks. This will give her fine-level control and allow her to create more natural-looking results. Dr. Sikorski may also dilute the concentration of VOLUMA® with anesthetic for your comfort.

Concluding Treatment

While some cosmetic treatments require that you take time off for a few days, VOLUMA®  in Orange County allows you to return to your regular schedule immediately. Our practice will notify you of any aftercare instructions. The most common side effects of VOLUMA®—such as tenderness, bruising, or swelling—are moderate. Once they have faded, your cheeks will look smoother, firmer, and more youthfully full.
