We’ve put together a list of Volux FAQs for New York City patients who are interested in learning more about this exciting filler treatment.

  • Q: What Is Volux?

    A: Volux is part of the Juvederm family of hyaluronic fillers made by Allergan. It is the first FDA-approved dermal filler specifically formulated for chin and jawline contouring.

  • Q: How Does Volux Work?

    A: Volux is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of our body that attracts and retains moisture. This plumps and volumizes the skin, resulting in better contours.

  • Q: What Makes Volux Different from Other Juvederm Products?

    A: The unique structural rigidity and thicker consistency of Volux injections sets it apart from the other Juvederm hyaluronic-acid dermal fillers. These aid in creating a stronger and firmer jawline.

  • Q: Is Volux Safe?

    A: Yes, Volux is a safe minimally invasive procedure. It provides an alternative to surgical jawline contouring, reducing the likelihood of complications.

  • Q: How Long Is the Downtime After Volux?

    A: There is no lengthy recovery period necessary following your Volux procedure. There may be slight swelling or bruising, but you can get back to your usual routine right away.

  • Q: How Soon Will I See Volux’s Final Results?

    A: The initial cosmetic changes can be observed immediately, but it takes about two to three weeks for Volux to settle.

  • Q: Is Volux Painful?

    A: The injection process is not painful, as we take precautions and steps to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

  • Q: How Long Do Volux Results Last?

    A: The molecular makeup of Volux is designed to last up to 24 months.

  • Q: Who Are Not Good Candidates for Volux Dermal Fillers?

    A: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may not be recommended for this treatment. Patients with extreme allergies or a known allergy to lidocaine are not ideal candidates for Volux.

  • Q: When Will the Swelling Go Away?

    A: Bruising, swelling, and tenderness may be experienced at the injection sites. These should disappear quickly within a few days after your treatment.

  • Q: What Is the Difference Between Voluma and Volux?

    A: The main difference between the two dermal fillers is the target area. Voluma is approved for application on the cheeks and chin, whereas Volux is for creating better definition for the jawline and chin.

  • Q: When Can I Get a Facial Treatment After My Volux Procedure?

    A: You may get a facial, massage, or microdermabrasion treatment two weeks or more after your Volux injections. This period helps to avoid applying pressure on the treated areas, which can cause migration of the filler.

  • Q: When Can I Go Back to the Gym After Volux?

    A: You may be able to resume exercises a day or two after your procedure.

  • Q: What If I’m Not Happy with the Results?

    A: There are adjustments that can be made to achieve satisfying results. Additional fillers may be administered, or the injected filler may be dissolved with a hyaluronidase.

  • Q: Do I Need Additional Volux Appointments?

    A: The results can wear off over time, so if you want to preserve your results, you will need an additional treatment session a few years after your initial treatment.

  • Q: How Many Syringes Will I Need?

    A: Depending on your desired outcome, you may need about one to three syringes of Volux to achieve the best results.

  • Q: How Do I Sleep After Treatment?

    A: Elevate your head and sleep on your back for three nights after getting Volux in New York City.
