What can Voluma XC accomplish?
Voluma XC injectable gel is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA approved to instantly add volume to the mid-face region, or the cheek area. Offered to patients over age 21, Voluma XC provides a subtle lift while smoothing facial fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing overall appearance and adding a more healthy, natural and youthful glow.
Voluma XC differs from Juvederm XC, which smoothes out moderate-to-severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth, in that it adds instant volume to the cheek area. Dr. Mike Majmundar, double-Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs some of the most natural results in facial fillers Atlanta and its surrounding areas have to offer.
Will I be comfortable during my facial filler treatment in Atlanta?
This treatment is performed in the office in 10-20 minutes. Dr. Majmundar uses blunt microcannulas for injection which reduces pain and bruising significantly. Microcannulas are blunt instruments used to deliver filler into facial tissue. Because it is blunt, unlike needles, the microcannulas create less damage to underlying soft tissue reducing bruising, swelling, and pain.
Filler injections can be made more comfortable through the use of nitrous oxide (also known as ‘laughing gas’) to minimize any discomfort or anxiety, making your experience stress free. The patient can drive themselves home within 10 minutes of the treatment! Because of the analgesic properties of nitrous oxide, the treatment can be combined with others to maximize the patient’s time.
What can I expect from recovery?
With optimal treatment, the results from Voluma XC can last up to two years, and patients usually can resume their normal activities within 24 hours following treatment. Side effects can occur and include tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps or bumps, bruising, and redness at the site of the treatment area. With the use of blunt microcannulas in Dr. Majmundar’s practice, these reactions usually last no more than 24 - 36 hours.
Who is a good candidate for treatment with Voluma XC?
A good candidate is anyone who is frustrated with the appearance of their skin and the hollowing effect that is taking place in the cheek area due to lost facial volume. Your doctor can let you know for sure if Voluma is right for your needs during your private consultation in Alpharetta and Atlanta, however in general, patients should be in good mental and physical health, and have realistic expectations for improvement rather than perfection.
