Youthful, smooth-looking skin is often the result of sufficient levels of Hyaluronic Acid in the body. This important hydrating molecule keeps skin cells looking their best and functioning efficiently. Over time and naturally, with age, hyaluronic acid levels begin to decrease. As a result, skin tends to lose its elastic structure and experiences a decrease in overall volume. For many individuals, this decrease in hyaluronic acid levels is most noticeable in facial features, particularly around the cheekbones, where fine lines and wrinkles appear in areas where moisture is lacking, and skin is loosening. While facial wrinkles are normal and loss of volume is to be expected, many individuals find themselves unhappy with the change in their appearance. Those looking for a solution to younger, fuller and more hydrated skin will often find Voluma XC dermal fillers to be an efficient and successful answer to the problem.
The most innovative release from the family of Juvederm products, Voluma XC is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler that is new on the market. It is specifically designed to restore facial contours and get rid of wrinkles around the cheeks, chin and cheekbones. It is a smooth, injectable gel with results that last up to 24-months at a time. Voluma XC successfully targets nasolabial folds and corrects wrinkles that are often pointed to as factors that cause an individual to appear older than they are.
Dr. Wright and his team at the St. Louis Laser Lipo and Vein Center are proud to be among the first to in the area to administer this innovative solution to patients looking to contour facial features to a more youthful appearance by treating fine lines and wrinkles. Voluma is administered as an injection in the comfort of Dr. Wright’s office. The areas to be treated will be clearly marked prior to any injection. The solution is administered through a fine needle for minimal discomfort. Additionally, Voluma is manufactured with lidocaine which is a painkiller and numbing agent making the entire procedure extremely painless and stress-free. In total, administering Voluma takes approximately 30 minutes depending on the number of areas to be treated.
Patients enjoy extremely quick results and an even faster recovery when they choose Voluma wrinkle procedures for treating fine lines and facial wrinkles. Most patients report seeing immediate results after the treatment. Minimal redness, swelling or discomfort may be experienced at the point of injection but is easily treatable with over the counter pain killers and should reside within a day or two. Patients can expect to resume their normal, daily activities immediately after receiving treatment.
Voluma XC wrinkle procedures are an extremely safe and highly effective solution to facial contouring. As a filler solution, Voluma is administered in an out-patient setting that does not require general anesthesia, a hospital stay or a lengthy recovery period. Patients with darker skin pigmentation do not generally experience any alteration to skin tone after the procedure. Similarly, they are not more susceptible to scarring at the point of injection making this a safe and effective procedure for patients with a variety of skin tones.
As with all cosmetic procedures, the cost of Voluma XC dermal fillers is highly dependent on the individual patient and may vary due to the size of the area to be treated, number of treatment areas or the time required between treatments to maintain desired results. The team at the St. Louis Laser Lipo and Vein Center is happy to go over our many options for payments and financing to make the experience as convenient as possible.
