If you have become dissatisfied with your appearance due to wrinkles and fine lines, dermal fillers such as Voluma® could be exactly what you need to regain your confidence. Located in Carmel and Greenwood, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Mark M. Hamilton, MD, FACS, offers Voluma™ to men and women who live in and around Indianapolis, Indiana.
What Is Voluma®?
Voluma® is a type of cosmetic treatment that is known as a dermal filler or injectable filler. Within each injection is hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that eliminates wrinkles by filling out and smoothing skin. Voluma® is currently the only FDA-approved injectable that uses Vycross™ technology. Vycross™ is a gel-like substance that can quickly permeate the skin to fill crevices and contours. Within a short period of time, this will result in firmer skin with better elasticity. Voluma™ is approved to treat skin volume issues around the cheeks and mid-face region.
Benefits of Voluma®
Voluma® remains one of the most popular dermal fillers in the world due to its ability to lift and fill skin from underneath. Patients continue to choose this filler time and time again because of the advanced Vycross™ technology and the potent hyaluronic acid. Some of the other amazing benefits of Voluma® include:
- Immediate results that last for up to two years.
- Absolutely no recovery time.
- Natural ingredients.
- Quick treatment times.
- Smoother and healthier-looking skin.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Voluma®?
Male and female patients that are over the age of 21 and in relatively good health are often great candidates for this treatment. Voluma® is one of the leading options for anyone that would like more elasticity and volume in and around their cheeks. In addition to adding volume, this product can also soften fine lines and wrinkles in younger patients that have begun to show the signs of aging. Older patients can benefit from Voluma™ injections as well.
How involved is the Voluma® Procedure?
Patients will be glad to hear that this procedure is quick, painless and minimally invasive when administered by one of our experienced nurse injectors. We use only the most advanced medical devices and techniques to administer doses of this dermal filler exactly where it is needed. Those that are worried about any discomfort can request topical anesthetics but they are generally unnecessary. Patients can return back to work and all of their other daily activities immediately following their appointment.
How Long Is The Recovery Period Following Voluma®?
Voluma® injections have absolutely no recovery time. The average patient will step out of our office experiencing nothing more than some minor redness around the injection sites. Other common side effects include slight tenderness and itching but these should subside within 48 hours of your appointment. Patients should avoid massages and dental work for at least two weeks after the injections.
How Much Does Voluma® Cost in Indianapolis, Indiana?
The final cost of Voluma® varies between every patient and will be determined by a few unique factors. This includes the number of shots and appointments that are needed. Some patients prefer to have all of the shots carried out at once while others prefer to spread the shots out across multiple appointments. We also have patients that choose to have other dermal fillers injected at the same time. In addition to financing options, we accept checks, cash and all major credit cards.
