Voluma in Phoenix, AZ
Do you feel less confident because of the lines and wrinkles on your face? If so, Voluma® treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, may be right for you. Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh recommends Voluma® treatments as a minimally-invasive alternative to surgery for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Voluma®?
Voluma® is an injectable product that contains hyaluronic acid (HA) that binds with water molecules to add fullness to the skin. As we get older, our bodies produce less of the substances that are important for young, smooth skin, such as collagen and HA. Voluma® restores the HA to levels that are common in younger skin. The interaction between HA and water molecules causes the skin to naturally fill in lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Voluma®
Men and women prefer Voluma® because the product:
- Adds lift to the skin that fills in lines and wrinkles
- Requires no downtime or recovery that is needed with some other treatments and surgery
- Gives you immediate, long-lasting results
What Can I Expect from Voluma®?
The procedure for Voluma® injections takes less than one hour. Dr. Taghizadeh will make several injections along the targeted lines and wrinkles. You will notice an immediate change in your appearance. In the weeks following the procedure, the HA continues to work by attracting water molecules and gradually improving skin texture.
How Voluma® Differ from Other Types of Injectable Fillers?
Voluma® uses a unique technology known as Vycross™ that allows the gel to quickly be absorbed by the skin. The formulation adds volume to the skin and improves elasticity. In addition to treating lines and wrinkles, Voluma® can be used to add fullness to the cheeks and other facial contours.
Recovery from Voluma®
Voluma® injections require now recovery. Some patients have mild tenderness around the injection sites. Dr. Taghizadeh recommends that you avoid rubbing the treatment area for the first two weeks to ensure that the gel stays in place. Your skin looks smoother and younger, and your wrinkles are less noticeable. You will see full results after a few weeks when the HA has had time to bind with water molecules.
Where Can Voluma® Be Applied?
Dr. Taghizadeh recommends Voluma® for men and women who want to:
- Add fullness to the cheek area
- Soften nasolabial folds
Will Everyone Benefit from Voluma®?
The FDA has approved Voluma® for men and women who are over 21 years old. If you are allergic to the ingredients in Voluma®, Dr. Taghizadeh will recommend an injectable product that contains other ingredients to help you look younger.
