Voluma in La Jolla, CA
Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, accredited by the Joint Commission and awarded the Gold Seal of Approval which reflects our commitment to excellence and quality patient care, offers Voluma® treatments to local residents requiring skin rejuvenation.
Full cheeks are one of the most important features of your face associated with youth and beauty. Some people are born with less prominent cheeks, and others have shallow or sunken cheeks as a result of age. While cheek implants may be an option for some patients, Voluma® is a minimally invasive treatment that adds volume to your cheeks with no surgery or downtime.
What Is Voluma®?
Voluma® is an injectable dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that keeps your skin smooth and hydrated. Voluma® has proven effective for adding volume to the three areas of your cheeks that work together to create an attractive and appealing cheek area.
Is Voluma® a Good Choice for Me?
Knowing if Voluma® is right for you is not a decision that you should make on your own. Voluma® and other dermal fillers are specifically designed to work with your skin to address common signs of aging, and choosing the wrong treatment may lead to unwanted results. Meet with Dr. Shumway and he will advise you about the best way for you to achieve your cosmetic goals.
