How your dermatologist can help you feel more confident with Voluma
When young people think about aging, they think about small lines between their eyes and wrinkles across their forehead. In fact, there are other signs of aging that can add years to your appearance. For example, the skin across a person’s face can lose volume and begin to sag, causing you to look older than you are or than you feel. Patients in Montclair, NJ who want to add volume to the cheek area and counteract the effects of aging can find great results with their trusted dermatologist and Voluma XC fillers.
What is Voluma XC?
This cosmetic treatment provides immediate and natural-looking results that adds volume to the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin, giving patients a boost of confidence that can last up to two years. Unlike invasive surgical procedures, that require incisions and recovery time, Juvéderm Voluma XC is a simple procedure performed in the doctor’s office. The filler is created from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the body.
How is Voluma injected?
Using a very fine needle, the gel is slowly injected into the face. Patients who are anxious about the procedure or who simply don’t like needles, can opt to have a topical numbing paste applied to the skin. Voluma can be used under wrinkles to smooth out the face, or to add volume to an area of the face such as the cheeks or forehead.
What kind of results can I expect?
Patients who use Voluma XC are typically thrilled with the ease of the procedure and the immediate and noticeable results. In most cases, people can receive the treatment on the same day. In a few cases, the treatments will need to be rescheduled due to medications or an upcoming event that is too close to the Filler being injected. Following the injections, the patient may notice some pink areas of the skin, slight soreness, or mild bruising. These side effects only last for a couple of days; however, the results can last for a year to 18 months. In addition to the speed of results and long-lasting effect, Voluma offers several other benefits:
- Natural looking results achieved from a finely developed gel
- Reversible with hyaluronidase injections
- Little to no downtime following the treatment
