Non-Surgical Voluma Treatments in OKC
Juvederm's new Voluma XC2 dermal filler is a revolutionary one-of-a-kind treatment. Voluma is the first dermal filler that has been approved by the FDA for restoring volume that has been lost in the cheeks. A Voluma treatment with OKC cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Benien, can help give your face a lift that lasts longer than most other non-surgical treatments.
Am I a Candidate for Voluma?
Voluma is the newest dermal filler from the makers of Juvederm. Like the original Juvederm, Voluma is made with hyaluronic acid (HA) that is found naturally in your body. As you get older, your skin loses HA, causing it to lose its firmness and volume.
Dermal fillers are commonly used for filling depressions in the skin to treat moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles or thinning lips. Voluma is different in the fact that its intention is to instantly add volume to a person's cheeks. It can effectively treat hollowed or sunken cheeks while achieving a subtle lift of the face.
Dr. Benien can also combine your Voluma treatment with other injectables and fillers to treat other areas affected by aging for a fuller rejuvenation of your face.
How Voluma Works
Voluma works slightly differently than other HA-based dermal fillers. It is used to address a larger area of volume loss in the cheeks rather than filling in lines or wrinkles. Your Voluma treatment will only last about a half an hour, and because the results are almost instant, you can see the changes as Dr. Benien administers the injections.
When the Juvederm Voluma treatment is injected into your skin, the hyaluronic acid gel works to add volume to the cheeks by operating in the same way that your skin's own natural supply of hyaluronic acid would work. Patients require little to no downtime, and are usually able to return to their regular routine shortly after treatment.
How Long Will My Voluma Treatment Last?
In early clinical studies of Juvederm Voluma, patients were still seeing results two years after a single treatment. Once you feel that the results of your treatment are beginning to fade, you may return to Dr. Benien for touch-up treatments to maintain your youthful appearance.
