Voluma™ in Los Altos, CA
If you are concerned with signs of aging in your appearance caused by the presence of wrinkles and fine lines, an injectable filler such as Voluma™ could be the solution to restore your youthful appearance as well as your confidence. Located in Los Altos, Mittelman Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Harry Mittelman, MD, offers Voluma™ to men and women who live in and around San Jose, Palo Alto and the surrounding communities of California.
What Is Voluma™?
Voluma™ is a cosmetic dermal filler treatment containing hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles by filling out and smoothing skin. Voluma™ is currently the only FDA-approved injectable that employs Vycross™ technology. Vycross™ is a gel-like substance that quickly permeates the skin, filling in creases and folds, resulting in firmer skin with better elasticity. Voluma™ is approved to increase facial volume around the cheeks and mid-face region.
Benefits of Voluma™
Voluma™ is one of the most popular dermal fillers in the world thanks to its capacity to lift and fill skin from beneath. Patients continue to choose this filler time and time again, because of the advanced Vycross™ technology and the amazing benefits of hyaluronic acid. Some other benefits of Voluma™ include:
- Immediately visible results that last for up to two years
- No downtime or recovery period
- Quick and simple procedure
- Results in smoother, plumper, and younger-looking skin
Who Is a Good Candidate for Voluma™?
Voluma™ is approved for men and women over the age of 21 and in generally good health. Voluma™ is one of the most popular treatment options for individuals who want increased elasticity and volume in and around their cheeks. In addition to adding volume, Voluma™ may also diminish fine lines and wrinkles in younger patients that have begun to show early signs of aging. Older patients can also benefit from Voluma™ injections.
How involved is the Voluma™ Procedure?
The Voluma™ procedure is quick, painless and minimally invasive, using the most advanced medical devices and techniques to inject this dermal filler exactly where it is needed. You may request a topical anesthetic, but it is generally unnecessary, and you may return to work and other activities immediately following your treatment.
How Long Is The Recovery Period Following Voluma™?
Voluma™ treatments require no recovery time. Most patients leave our office feeling nothing more than minor redness around the treatment sites, and in some cases, tenderness and itching, but these symptoms normally subside within 48 hours. We recommend you avoid massages and dental work for at least two weeks following treatment.
How Much Does Voluma™ Cost in San Jose?
The cost of Voluma™ treatments varies with each patient and is determined by several factors, such as the number of injections and treatments that are required. Some patients choose to receive all of the injections at once while others prefer to spread them across multiple appointments. Some patients may also choose to have other dermal fillers injected in combination with Voluma™. To provide flexible payment options for all our patients, in addition to financing options, we accept checks, cash, and all major credit cards.
