24 Feb Defy Gravity with Voluma at a Tempe Medspa
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC injectable gel, often called Voluma, is the latest, greatest injectable facial dermal filler. Voluma is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek regions.
What are the benefits of Voluma?
The hallmarks of a youthful face are fuller, plumped cheeks, which make the cheekbones appear higher. Voluma gives you this look without plastic surgery. Loss of volume in the cheeks can make them look hollow and aged. With injections of this dermal filler, the doctor restores fullness to your cheeks, which, in turn, smooths the facial skin.
What makes Voluma different than other dermal fillers?
Voluma is a gel solution, specifically formulated for the check area. The Voluma gel contains lidocaine, which numbs the region during the injection process. In addition, the particle size is larger, so the cheeks get fuller without numerous injections. The filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the skin. With age, the body does not produce as much hyaluronic acid as in youth. The Voluma injections are used to restore the plumpness to the cheeks.
How long does it take and how long does it last?
The procedure only takes around 30-45 minutes, which includes sign in time and injections. Some patients have enjoyed the benefits of Voluma for up to two years, but results vary from person-to-person.
What are the side effects of Voluma?
All injectable dermal fillers have risks and side effects. With Voluma, you can expect slight tenderness at the injection site. Bruising and redness may occur, and this could last for 2-4 days.
What results can I expect?
Immediately after the Voluma injections, you will notice results. However, maximum results are realized within two weeks. With these injections, you can expect?
- A youthful profile to the cheeks
- Gentle lifting and plumping of the cheeks
- Decrease in facial hollowing
- Smoothing of labial folds
- An instant cheek lift
Who administers the Voluma injections?
At our Medspa, highly trained, skilled practitioners administer the Voluma injections. The dedicated staff members are there to assist with the procedure. The professionals train with experts from the manufacturer.
Who is a candidate for Voluma?
Virtually anyone who has volume loss of the midface is a candidate for Voluma. This treatment is often used on individuals with poorly defined cheekbones. Clients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s will benefit from Voluma injections. In addition, this treatment is used for clients who are not yet ready for cheek implants or facelifts.
How does Juvéderm Voluma work?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are made using VYCROSS technology. The smooth gel consistency of this treatment enables experienced practitioners to inject the apex of the cheek with Voluma to ensure natural-looking results. Hyaluronic acid Voluma draws water to the injection site, which binds with the solution to add volume to the cheeks. This offers instant facial rejuvenation and gives a plumped look.
How much does Voluma cost?
The average cost for injecting both cheeks with Voluma is around $1,200 to $1,600. This will vary, depending on the amount of solution used during the procedure.
