How to prepare for your appointment?

1 week prior to your procedure be sure to avoid the following:

  • Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID)
    • These would be items like ibuprofen and naproxen.
  • Acetylsalicyclic Acid (ASA)
    • These would be meds that are used to Treat pain, fever, arthritis, and inflammation. It may also be used to reduce the risk of heart attack.
  • Herbal vitamins and supplements
    • Especially those that thin the blood, such as Vitamin E, Gingko Biloba, Feverfew, Ginseng, Red Clover, Fish oil, and garlic supplements.
  • Plan in case bruising occurs to avoid for any important events.

How long does the procedure take?

Based on the patient’s individualized treatment plan, our San Diego Juvederm procedure takes 15-20 minutes on average. We recommend that patients couple VOLUMA treatment with other skin enhancing procedures like Botox & Juvéderm injections to achieve full facial rejuvenation. The most dramatic results are seen on patients with Botox and VOLUMA procedures because these fillers target different facial areas and types of wrinkles. Together Botox and VOLUMA can enhance the entire face and target various areas to provide a complete facial rejuvenation.

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 the 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 down time. Unlike other more invasive treatments that require days and weeks of down time, 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, preforming exercise, and consuming alcohol.

Dr. Karam, who is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and American Board of Otolaryngology, offers services in San Diego County including San Diego, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, Encinitas, Rancho Bernardo and La Jolla in Southern California.
