Dr. Ekstrom uses topical anesthetic with all of her cosmetic injections to minimize
discomfort during the injections. The doctor will carefully inject Voluma® into the needed
areas of the face in less than 5-10 minutes. You may return to your normal activities as
soon as you feel able with minimal swelling, discoloration, and tenderness. You will see
some results right away, but it usually takes about 7 days before the filler settles into
the cheeks for your final results. The effects of Voluma® can last more than a year, at
which time most patients schedule a follow up injection.
