The first thing people notice is your face. With saggy skin and worn-out looks, other people perceive you as tired. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can make you appear more youthful and energetic.

What is it?

VOLUMA is an injectable filler, similar to Juvéderm Ultra, that fills in fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, JuvédermVoluma XC was created by Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox. VOLUMA is used on the apex, hollow, and apple of cheeks to improve the appearance of loose skin by adding structure.

VOLUMA is injected into the face to restore facial volume and replenish lost fat stores that cause parts of our face to sag and fall. VOLUMA is not a dermal filler that is injected superficially but is instead injected into the deeper subcutaneous layers and fat pads of the skin thus restoring volume and enhancing the face.

Who Should You Trust to Inject Voluma?

The important thing is to recognize that Voluma injection is a medical procedure, which must be done by a medical professional. Go to a board-certified plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or otolaryngologist, which is the best way to achieve optimal results in a sterile and safe environment.

Dr. Amir Karam is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, an expert injector, and trainer for Allergan (the makers of Botox, Juvederm, and VOLUMA). He is on their National Training & Speakers Panel, where he trains other doctors, nurses, and health professionals throughout the country on effective uses of these cosmetic procedures. As an expert injector, he has demonstrated extreme due diligence in regards to patient safety, reliable results, and consumer education. You’ll be in the best hands for one of your most important assets – your appearance!

Is there Pain Associated with Treatment? What are the Side Effects?

Treatment is performed by injecting VOLUMA into sunken cheek areas. This process may cause slight discomfort. In order to make the process as painless as possible, VOLUMA contains a local anesthetic.

After the procedure, an ice pack is applied and some patients may experience mild bruising, tenderness, redness, firmness, and swelling. Patients who do experience bruising can expect to be back to normal in about a week.

Down Time

Our San Diego Juvederm VOLUMA requires no downtime. Unlike other more invasive treatments that require days and weeks of downtime, VOLUMA patients can expect to return to normal functions right after treatment. However, some actions should be avoided for 24 hours including exposure to direct sunlight and heat, performing exercise, and consuming alcohol.

Francine M.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

Kris R.

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

Janice S.

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
