Voluma is an injectable filler by the makers of Juvéderm that adds volume to the mid-face that is thinning due to genetics or aging. Skin lacking volume can give patients an old or tired appearance that detracts from their overall cosmetic look. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Charles P. Virden, is proud to give his patients access to an effective alternative to surgical implants by way of Voluma. Our Carson City, NV patients can receive customized facial contouring and restored youthfulness at our office. At BLINK Medical Spa, we offer individual consultations to each patient in order to determine the best way to enhance their features and provide them with the most stunning outcome.
The best candidates for a Voluma XC injection will have:
- Sunken facial features
- Thinning skin due to age or genetics
- A desire for fuller features without surgery
- A desire for a natural look
- Realistic expectations for their outcome
What to Expect
Prior to your injection, a numbing agent will be applied if needed. You can expect this part of the appointment to take about 20 minutes. Our skilled APRN will customize each treatment based on the patient's needs and goals, delivering varying depths into the facial skin to produce the desired amount of volume and contouring. The appointment will take approximately 45-60 minutes in total. Patients can expect to see some minor swelling or redness at the injection sites, but this will go away in the next couple of days. Minor bruising can occur after injections. We recommend patients avoid blood thinners such as Advil two weeks prior to their appointment. We do have a medical-grade arnica cream available for patients who do experience bruising.
Voluma XC injections can produce visible results right after treatment, though the full outcome is generally seen in about 7 days once the treatment has settled into the skin. Voluma is one of the longest lasting fillers on the market, giving patients noticeably fuller skin for up to 2 years in certain cases.
