Who Is a Good Candidate for VOLUMA Filler?
One of the most significant factors that must be considered when determining who is a good VOLUMA Filler candidate is the cosmetic concerns that need to be addressed. This injectable dermal filler is specifically designed to add volume to the midface and lower face. Therefore, you may qualify for treatment if you are concerned about the appearance of your cheeks, but you shouldn’t expect to qualify if you are concerned about the appearance of your upper face.
Furthermore, it’s important to have realistic expectations about what results can be derived from this treatment. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns and goals and advise you on what improvements are realistic to help you determine if this treatment is appropriate for you. Moreover, you must be able to follow all preparation and aftercare guidelines and be fairly healthy.
Who Isn’t a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
While this treatment is appropriate for most adults who are over the age of 21, it is not usually recommended for people with a history of severe allergic reactions. Additionally, you will be considered a poor candidate for this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Moreover, this treatment is not appropriate for people who suffer from certain medical conditions, including hemophilia, diabetes, and heart disease.
Furthermore, you will not be a good candidate for VOLUMA injections if you have dynamic wrinkles or similar concerns. If this applies to you, BOTOX injections may be a better fit. During your initial consultation, we will advise you on all of the contraindications for this treatment. In some cases, you may be able to qualify for this treatment if you modify your lifestyle or drug regimen temporarily.
What Preparation Steps Will I Need To Take?
The first step you need to take to prepare for VOLUMA injections is to attend a consultation near New City, NY. During this consultation, we will verify your candidacy and let you know what else you have to do to prepare. For example, you’ll need to stop taking blood-thinning pharmaceuticals for 14 days in advance of your injection session.
As another example, you will need to avoid drinking alcohol and consuming tobacco products for 24 hours pre-treatment. Furthermore, you need to make sure that you don’t have any skin irritation at the time of your appointment. Therefore, you’ll need to avoid any irritating cosmetic treatments or topical products.
What Aftercare Guidelines Will I Need To Follow?
One of the most important aftercare guidelines you will need to follow is to avoid touching the treatment area for 24 hours after your injections have been administered. If you rub the injection sites, the filler may spread outside of the treatment area, negatively affecting your results. Another important aftercare guideline to follow is to not drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, or consume other forms of nicotine for 24 hours post-treatment.
Furthermore, you need to stay hydrated after your treatment. This will help to increase the rate at which your final results become apparent. If you can make maintaining hydration a part of your routine, it can also serve to help your results last as long as possible. Similarly, it is important that you stay hydrated to help see your results faster and enjoy them for longer.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment Session?
Before your injections are administered, we will clean your treatment area to mitigate the risk of infection. To ensure your comfort and safety, we will verify that your skin is not irritated in any way in the treatment area. Once that’s done, we will administer the optimal dose of hyaluronic acid-based gel to multiple strategic points in your areas of concern. Typically, treatment sessions take between 25 and 60 minutes.
One of the reasons that this treatment is so convenient is that there is no need for the administration of anesthesia prior to treatment. If you want us to numb your skin before your injections are administered, we can apply a topical numbing cream to your skin. However, this may add around 15 minutes to your treatment time.
